ABOUT CHIJMES HALL
The construction of the neo-gothic Chapel began in 1901 and was completed in March 1902. A Belgian stained-glass artist, Jules Dobbelaere, produced the windows in 1903. The Chapel ceiling and 30,000 pieces of stained-glass were sent back to France for cleaning and repairs. In 1990 it was gazetted as a National Monument of Singapore.
Built with striking architectural features that have remained throughout its 100 years of existence, the 19th century neo-gothic chapel holds an elegantly lit up interior space of sparkling crystal chandeliers. With its high ceilings and filtered lights falling through the finest stained glass windows, Chijmes Hall offers our Watabe Wedding guests an unique ambience with regal charm, a totally different experience.

ALCOVE AT CALDWELL HOUSE
Gazetted as a national monument in 1990, Caldwell House is one of the oldest building in Singapore.
Its neoclassical style design is one of the few surviving works of renowned architect, G.D Coleman. The Grand Gallery on level 2, renamed The Alcove is managed by Watabe Wedding Singapore.
With its unique semi-circular exterorior and large doric columns supporting a vaulted timber ceiling, Alcove at Caldwell House is well furnished and suitable for intimate celebrations of about 30 to 100 guests. Its modern furnishing allows room for versatility, an ideal location for corporate and wedding events.
Today, the upper level interior still features an original wall verse “MARCHE EN MA PRESENCE ET SOIS PARFAIT” in French, meaning “Walk Along With Me And Be Perfect”
