Top 3 Solemnizers Justice of Peace for your ROM / Solemnization in Singapore 2020

Solemnizer ROM solemnizationHere’s our review of the top 3 Solemnisers Justice of Peace in Singapore for your ROM in Singapore.

What is a wedding without a solemnization? ROM is what we call it in Singapore, the Registry of Marriage.

Having to say “I do”, in front of your family and friends can be such a beautiful experience. Having a good Solemniser for your ROM or Solemnisation or some would call them Justice of Peace, will guide you through exchanging your vows. He/She will be able to set the mood and pacing to a beautiful moment. We have seen countless of Solemnisers from the wedding videos we have shot, and only some make the mark above the rest. But before we get down to our review, we have to ask ourselves what makes a good Solemniser. How can a Solemniser do Solemnisation Justice? (nice pun huh?)

Enunciation

As wedding videographers, we have seen our fair share of bad Solemnisers who fail to do proper pronouncing of sentences. This especially turns up on the wedding video and is very hard to edit out. Hence, we have scoured the ends of Singapore to find our top pick for Solemnisers.

Duration

I can’t tell you how many times we have seen ROM Solemnisation dragged on till the audience members and family members have to whip out their phones to distract them from the drudgery of boredom. A good Solemniser will be able to pace well and be short and concise. He/she will be able to do a proper introduction, “meat of the vows” and signing of certificates within 30 minutes. We have seen numerous Solemnisers drag out the process by giving a marriage counseling session. Justice of Peace, more like Justice of Boredom.

Mood

Last but not least, a good JP (Justice of Peace) should give me the vibes, the feels. The general public may regard humour as a good indicator of a good ROM solemnization, but contrary to that, we believe that it should be calm and romantic. Some Solemnisers give out the same jokes over again. For first-timers, it may be quite humorous especially when you have older crowds. But when you look back, you want to view your ROM Solemnization as a sacred event. An event that in front of everyone, you exchanged something pure, something real.

Here’s our youtube video to summarise the review.

 

 

3. MRS. CHIA SWEE TIN

Solemnizer ROM solemnization

Dr. Chia has a very straight character. It’s hard to describe it, but whenever I meet her, she has a very teacher personality, like Mrs. Ho from my secondary school days. But whenever I shoot for her ROM Solemnisation, it’s a chop chop 12 minutes- It’s a Wrap Solemnization. She cuts to the chase, without wasting any time. She does a proper introduction and welcomes the guests politely. And to top it off, she holds consultations with all her couples.

I always believe that’s important as she makes sure that the couple knows what’s in store. Furthermore, she enforces couples to write their vows. I believe that’s important in a ROM Solemnization to make it personal. Some other Solemnisers have their couple recite pre-prepared cards on the wedding day. That’s not necessarily wrong, but don’t you want to look back at your ROM Solemnization and see that you believed in your marriage.

2. Dr. Jasbir Singh

Solemnizer ROM solemnization

It was so hard tracking Dr. Singh down. He’s one of the Solemnizers who are a rare gem. I recently met him, and he was a bundle of joy to be around. And quite active on social media as well. And guess what, he’s a Doctor. Most of the ROM Solemnisers have full-time jobs, but having a Doctor to your wedding, talk about raising the bar. Fun fact, the word Doctor is originally an agentive noun of the Latin verb docēre Latin pronunciation: [dɔˈkeːrɛ] ‘to teach‘. Guess this list is going to be about teachers who are part-time Solemnisers.

I’m unbiased, but when it comes down to clear, sweet and concise, the trophy has got to be given to Joanna Portilla. Dressed in joyful colours, she conducts the ROM Solemnization with grace and calmness. Having a clear introduction and giving time for the couples to exchange their vows. It’s something about how she tonal octave that is therapeutic to my ears.

OTHER ROM SOLEMNIZERS

And if you haven’t managed to lock down the top 3 ROM solemnizers, here are 10 ROM solemnizers in Singapore who we may have missed out

Do remember to

  • Check with your Solemnizer on his/her:
  1. Language preference for ROM solemnization
  2. Requirement(s) such as meeting up and/or pre-marriage preparation
  • Invite your ROM Solemnizer personally
  • Do take note that your Solemnizer is a volunteer. We don’t think you can find a full-time Solemniser in Singapore. Have someone receive him/her before the timing of ROM solemnizer. This is especially so when there are multiple ROM Solemnization rooms in a hotel. He/She might be confused as to where it’s being held.

Dr. Phua Tan Kee ROM Solemnisation Singapore

 

You can say he’s touted as one of Singapore’s best Solemnisers. He has a mix of English and Chinese jokes. As a first-timer couple attending a wedding, he can be quite entertaining. Especially for his age, the energy level he delivers across is quite high. Older folks loveeee him as he can give a good speech in dialects.

With that said, I do feel that sometimes, the speech he gives can be quite long. You can see from the video, it can be almost twice the amount of time taken to conduct the ceremony without the couple’s vows in. I feel that a ROM Solemnization shouldn’t be so much of a marriage counseling session, which sometimes can come across as one. But overall, couples do feel that if they get him, with his credentials and branding, it can be quite an honour.

Justice of Peace- Mr. Zenon Teh Chin Huak ROM Solemnization Singapore

 

He’s always so passionate. The way he speaks can put a smile on my face. Mr Zenon does a weird tonation of speaking. Check out how he uses certain words such as “Promise” & “Do you?”. Sometimes, I feel that his past life was a theatre performer. But in any case, every session with Zenon feels like a performance piece, a monologue of some sort. Don’t need to spend any money on Sistic, just being part of his ROM Solemnization is like getting a free ticket.

Justice of Peace- Simon Sim ROM Solemnization Singapore

 

When listening to Simon Sim, I’m reminded of my university lecture. The way he conducts the ROM Solemnization feels like a presentation with citations. Sometimes, he does quiz the couples (not pressurizing at all). But I must say, this is an effort on his part and not many ROM solemnizers take time to deliver monologues.

Justice of Peace- Pastor Lawrence Lim ROM Solemnization Singapore

 

Pastor Lawrence has a special mention here. He is one of the solemnizers I look forward to being part of. Whenever he conducts a ceremony, I can’t help but feel engaged with his passion. The way he delivers his lines is with so much conviction and passion, that I can’t help believing everything he says. He encompasses the true sense of what a solemnization should be. Sadly, if you are conducting a secular solemnization, you might not be able to get him.

 

Justice of Peace Toh Soon Huat- ROM Solemnization Singapore

Solemnizer ROM solemnization

 

Justice of Peace Toh Soon Huat ROM Solemnization is normal and straightforward. Nothing much can be said. But on a side note, we do something to test out a Solemniser in a ROM. Perhaps one of the key things of a Solemnization ROM is having a personalized quote, speech or segment about the couple. As always, it’ll be difficult for any Solemniser to say anything about the couple since sometimes it might be the first time he/she sees the couple. What we did was ask Mr. Toh Soon Huat to say a short personal excerpt we wrote in order to put it into his speech. This is to give flavour to the final wedding video when it’s screened. We asked him to say out “Marriages last because two people make a choice: to keep it, to fight for it and to work for it.”

Sigh, sadly, he didn’t oblige to our request. On our part, might be something too out of the blue for any Justice of Peace to do. Or maybe it was written in our very small tiny handwriting to be said out. Who knows?

Justice of Peace- Mr Francis Ng Chin Fah Solemnization SingaporeSolemnizer ROM solemnization

Mr. Francis Ng makes the Solemnization Jovial and not too serious. That’s a good trait for a ROM solemnization. He also does Bilingual and helps to cater to the older folks. His intonation is similar to Zenon’s sermon, having soft and loud words at different parts of his speech. Just something for us to comment on, he asked the couple to hug at the ending of the solemnization. It’s a little anti-climatic and doesn’t make any sense. He then proceeds on to say that the couple may be shy and what does he say after this sentence? I’ll invite the rest of the audience to applause and you’ll stop kissing till they stop. That makes perfect sense in the delivery!!!

Justice of Peace- David Alexander Ong Liang Bong ROM Solemnization

David Ong gives a very formal ROM Solemnization. He does a no-nonsense ROM. Even if there are jokes around, he seems unphased. Best of which, he does have a fantastic speech on hands. These hands are the hands that will passionately love each other… But his delivery is just so monotonous. It is still a fantastic effort for any Solemniser to prepare.

But he did something a Justice of Peace should never do. Almost a Sin by doing so. He directed them to say the couple’s vows together. This should never be done. The vows should be always said individually.  Because of what happened, the vows are said at a different pace and they had to repeat after David after every sentence. The vow exchanging could never be as meaningful as it can ever be.
