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.

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our Muji Home Reno Journey | Electrical works and Aircon Trunking

Before embarking on our Muji Home renovation journey, I never knew that the bulk of the work comes from the electrical wiring and the importance of electrical works. In fact, we totally overlooked that part. How many sockets needed and where to place them. Before we selected our ID, we met one of them onsite and the ID just went on asking us how many sockets and lighting point we need in this room, where we need the socket to be located at ...bla bla bla all of these during our first on-site meeting. Trust us, we never had such a pressurising consultation before. Tips for you A lesson learnt from our experience, perhaps before you even meet your IDs or contractors, spend some time in your BTO and visualise how you want to use the space and place your furniture. For us, we thought we can come to that much later when the renovation is almost complete but boy we are so wrong about that. You should already know how many sockets you need and where you want it to be placed from the be

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you. There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement. But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still. And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks. But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh... And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group. So naturally, i fall into this group as well. According
