Engaging a Popular / Recommended Justice of Peace

Well, it can be quite a hassle to ROM outside ROM venue.
Firstly you have to contact a Justice of peace of your choice and check with them on their availability before you can E-file over at

Based on ROM's info, there're at least 1,000 justice of peace / solemnizers for you to choose from.
But most of us would like to play safe and engage those that has been recommended right?
So it's the same, usual few JPs who are among the hot favourite.
Now come the challenge, you can't engage them too early - more than 3 months prior to your wedding as they can't confirm their schedule as well and engaging them too late, they're already booked for others ROM..

Grrr..I never know it can be so much of a challenge engaging one of them. Well, actually we were a little late, we can start last month which is 3 months prior to our wedding date but we were too busy Nua-ing & slacking away so by the time we remember, it's like 2 months left to our wedding..LOLx..

Anyway, here’s a list of some of the more popular / recommended Justice of Peace / Solemnisers with their contact email.

These days I think most of us preferred to email than to personally call and enquire, hence I picked only the ones with email addresses given..lolx..and I won’t be posting their mobile numbers publicly, so if you want their mobile, do drop me a note ya.

Most of them were described as being jovial, friendly and tells a joke or two instead of being all so serious during your solemnization.

1. Mr. Phua Tan Tee – Hot favourite! The most popular JP. Replies email very fast.


2. Mr. Chia Ti Yu – replies email almost instantly. He called me upon receiving my email


3) Professor Yu Shi Ming – replies email within a day too. He’s often travelling though.


4) Mr. Peter Lee – many raves about him


5) Mr. Simon Sim - family life ambassador who does marriage prep talks as well. Very passionate about his job


6) Dr. Kwoh Chee Keong – very nice & repsonsive


Actually almost all of the above I’ve contacted were really nice and reply within a day.
There’re 2 more which I’ve contacted, but one of them also highly raved, Mr. Yeo Woon Soo is not longer solemnizing and the other one, I only have the mobile number.

Out of the 8 solemnisers contacted, only Mr. Simon See is able to solemnize for us at our designated time..*phewzz**

Next year is a hot year for weddings and I think there’re like tons of couples getting married in the year of dragon as well. Especially if your wedding is on a hot date or weekend, do engage your justice of peace early.

Save the stress loh..

We’ll be meeting Mr. Simon See later this evening to sign the consent form.
From what I understand, some of them do not meet you at all till your wedding day, everything is done via email or fax. But some JPs would prefer to meet you face to face and they actually take time off their personal time to do it.

Shall share our experience with Mr. Simon See after our meeting this evening.

Steps to Getting Married Outside ROM

1. Go to List of Licensed Solemnisers

2. Invite a Solemniser near your home (inform him/her of your marriage details such as venue, date and time).

3. Download ‘Solemniser Consent Form’ and obtain his/her signed consent (this can be done via meeting or fax).

4. ‘File Notice of Marriage’ at During filing, you will need to submit the following details:

• Bride and Groom’s NRIC No. / Passport No.
• 2 witnesses’ NRIC No. / Passport No.
• Solemniser’s name, licence number, date, time and venue of solemnisation
• Credit Card Details

5. At the end of filing, print and read the ‘Filing Instructions’. To have a licence issued for solemnisation, please go to the ROM on the day/time allotted (usually 3 to 4 days before solemnisation) for Statutory Declaration, verification of documents and collection of marriage documents.


  1. hello, i came across your blog when searching for a nice JP to solemnize my wedding. You mentioned that you contacted 8 JPs in total and the last one you only have his mobile. May I know what is his name and contact pls? i tried contacting majority of those you listed and was turned down. :|

  2. Hi Kelvin

  4. Hi, I've just invited Mr. Simon See as my JP. Just wondering how's your experience with him?

  5. hi michelle

    you can read about our solemnization here

    overall mr. simon see is nice and patient but can be a bit "long winded" he does preach a little on getting along as a couple, the difference between husband and wife etc...

    our attention kind of drifted away after the first 10 minutes. think he was talking for like 20-30minutes.

    but overall a very nice gentleman!

  6. Great information you share over there and each and everything is very clear. I am looking forward to this post. It's important for a photographer to be creative.

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.

We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

Alright …

8 Day 7 Night Okinawa Self-drive Trip with Kids Itinerary Preview via Taiwan

Travel period: 13 March to 20 March 2018

Flight: Singapore Airlines to Taiwan, Peach Airlines to Okinawa
Hotel: Okinawa Grand Mer Resort (Okinawa), Marine Piazza Hotel (Okinawa), Yomi Hotel (Taiwan)

Here's a preview of our 8 Day 7 Night Okinawa (Self-drive) - Taiwan Trip with kids itinerary.  I'll be creating an individual post for each day and include the link soon so that you can read up in detail. 
Some time ago, we've booked our air tickets to Taiwan during Singapore Airlines Promotion. Yes, we love Taiwan that much. But this time around, a friend from Taiwan suggested that we can pop by Okinawa too since it's a mere 1 hour plus flight away from Taiwan and the air tickets are pretty reasonable too.
So we took Singapore Airlines to Taiwan - Taoyuan airport and took Peach Airlines, a Japanese low-cost carrier (budget) airline to Okinawa. With all the checked-in baggage, we paid about SGD$200+ per pax for Peach Airlines.  The timing was perfect for us (almost), we landed at …
