Our second pick (and incidentally the second oldest church in Singapore) is the Church of Saints Peter & Paul, located just down the street from the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd. Led by Reverend Fr Pierre Paris, a French missionary priest, its construction was completed in 1870. This parish catered to the growing Chinese Catholic community in Singapore, having held masses in local dialects since its opening.
This gorgeous neo-Gothic structure became a national monument in 2003, and received Singapore’s Architectural Heritage award when it was restored in 2016.
Its century-old stained glass windows and bronze bells were specially made and imported from France and installed in 1869! Ornate French tiles and a pristine white backdrop are just some of the features this intricate and historically rich building has to offer. Based on our research, the Church of Saints Peter and Paul is fully booked for the year 2020, but if you find this place worth the wait, a wedding here would be very special indeed!
