Landmarks make for monumental wedding photos

Exhibition showcases 32 of S’pore’s historical buildings


Getting married is a landmark event in any person's life.

And for many couples, Singapore's landmark buildings form the perfect backdrop for a set of wedding photographs.

About 150 pairs of newlyweds will feature in a new exhibition organised by the Preservation of Monuments Board.

Their treasured snaps - which were taken from the 1960s right up to the present day - showcase 32 of Singapore's historical buildings, including the old Tao Nan School, Maghain Aboth Synagogue and the defunct Tanjong Pagar Railway Station.
