After the magical moment of “Yes” begins the hectic wedding planning, which first starts with finding a suitable wedding venue for your big day. Speaking of intimate wedding venues, in this issue we present one of our long-time favourites – Skyve Wine Bistro.
Skyve Wine Bistro is a chic, modern bistro with nice vintage, old-school touches. Surrounded by lush greenery and tucked in a corner of Newton, it creates a perfect setting for an intimate and cozy celebration. The interiors are charming and lit with plenty of natural sunlight, creating a homely feel for a gathering amongst loved ones. To top it off, they serve up hearty modern European fare paired with delicious wines (over 70+ labels to choose from!). Read on to discover what Skyve has in store for your big day.
1. Enjoy both alfresco settings and indoor comforts
Having a difficult time choosing between an outdoor or indoor celebration? At Skyve Wine Bistro, you can enjoy the best of both worlds. They have an alfresco area where you can enjoy an outdoor solemnization amid lush greenery, fresh air, and a serene atmosphere.
After exchanging your vows in the fresh outdoors, enter their indoor dining hall – a comfortable air-conditioned area where you and your guests can enjoy food and refreshments. Alternatively, if you prefer having your solemnization indoors, Skyve has an indoor lounge area that you can use. Skyve has a total seating capacity of 120 persons.
2. Indulge in generous servings of European Cuisine that taste as good as they look
Debunk your negative expectations about elegantly plated food, for Skyve Wine Bistro does not disappoint with their generous servings. We had the pleasure of tasting their 4-course meal (S$135++ per pax) and was blown away from the first course of Wild Mushroom Soup all the way to their Key Lime Semifreddo dessert. Each dish was meticulously prepared, with portions that left us feeling extremely satisfied.
Voted as Singapore’s Top Restaurant 2017/2018 by Wine & Dine Experience Pte Ltd, food served at the Skyve Wine Bistro is no doubt going to leave your guests with a lasting impression of your wedding day. We were impressed with the level of detail that the chefs placed into creating and presenting each dish.
My personal favourite was the Sous Vide Rice Crisped Beef Cheek – a satisfying chunk of roasted beef cheek surrounded by a thin layer of crispy rice batter. The contrasting textures were surprisingly harmonious and the fragrance of the crispy rice layer complemented the tender and succulent beef cheek. The plums and white fungus added a refreshing touch and I was completely sold midway through my meal.
In consideration for guests who do not take beef, Skyve Wine Bistro offers either fish or chicken for the main course as well. Choose between their pan-seared fish or grilled chicken leg. Paired with grilled greens, mushrooms, and truffled mash potatoes, all we can say is… Bon appetit!
Skyve also offers 3-course set meals (S$120++ per pax) or buffet reception (S$115++ per pax) for your celebration. Wine lovers will also be thrilled to know that they carry over 70 labels of wines! Discover them here.
3. Fret not about event styling and decorations
One of the more troublesome matters when choosing a restaurant for your wedding is having to separately engage a stylist to spruce up your venue. But at Skyve Wine Bistro, you can leave it all to their event styling partner, Wedding Diary. They are very familiar with the site at Skyve Wine Bistro and has worked with the events team to make plenty of special occasions come to live.
