My ROM at 1-Rochester

Kindly note that Roast at 1-Rochester has been replaced  by UNA

Since we would be having a formal dinner banquet at Mandarin Oriental, I wish to have a casual ROM amongst tranquil lush greenery. Holding our ROM at 1- Rochester was a surreal and relaxing experience; I highly recommend brides-to-be to consider this venue!

Jacey, the wedding coordinator, made preparation process smooth sailing; every aspect was prepared well in advance. We met up to choose the décor and had the food tasting session 3 months prior to the ceremony. During the food tasting session, Dear and I were pleasantly surprised. We didn’t expect the food standard to be so good; our guests were full of praises after the dinner

Check out the restaurant’s value for money Weekday set lunch and daily communal dining!

Our photographer friend took some lovely pictures of us before the ceremony. Gowns, hair and make up by Rico a Mona.

Don’t need to worry about rain because the pavilion is sheltered. If it does rain, staff would shelter the couple with umbrellas during the march in from the colonial house to the pavilion, which is only a short 5-step walk.

Private bridal room on the level 2, equipped with mirrors and a tall wardrobe for gown storage.

Couples can choose to hold the dinner indoors or outdoors; we preferred indoors because of the air-conditioning.We chose a 5 course dinner; couples can opt for a buffet.

      Hi Maria,

      Thanks very much. I have no idea how much the buffet will cost as I only had 14 guests, too few to have a buffet…
      Just drop them an email, they respond quite quickly 🙂
