Fancy getting married with a bird's eye view over a kaleidoscope of exotic birds from around the world?

Couples can do so at the Jurong Bird Park, which relaunched its Waterfall Aviary yesterday with a new elevated terrace that caters to public viewing as well as private events such as weddings.

The $250,000 terrace - converted from a monorail platform - can host 100 people at a standing reception or buffet. The ground-floor area can fit another 50 guests.

In the past, while couples could say their vows there, they had to go elsewhere for the reception and dinner. Other "flighty" wedding touches the park provides for nature-loving couples include having a cockatoo fly the wedding bands to them.
