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 www.rom.gov.sg


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.

a. Phua_tan_tee@nea.gov.sg

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

a. Chia_ti_yu@ite.edu.sg

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

a. rstyusm@nus.edu.sg

4) Mr. Peter Lee – many raves about him

a. Peter_lee@moh.gov.sg

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

a. simontco@gmail.com

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

a. ASCKKWOH@ntu.edu.sg

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 www.rom.gov.sg. 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.

  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!
