Being recently married and having gone through the headache of thinking where to shoot awesome (if I may say so myself) wedding photos in Singapore without having to pay too much for the right to take photos, I believe I can call myself somewhat of an expert on the matter.
1) Old KTM Railway track
This spot is popular, but it doesn't mean that you shouldn't give it a shot (all pun intended). Try the stretch of the old railway on Rifle Range Road (along Bukit Timah Rd). There is a scenic old cast iron bridge that provides a great background subject against a gently winding railway.
2) The White Rabbit at Dempsey Hill
The chapel-turned-restaurant-cum-bar is a great place for a garden wedding theme shoot. The white wrought iron garden furniture (there's a big swing too!) and the properly pruned hedges are a great backdrop for a casual and slightly colonial feel to your photos.
The Rabbit Hole
3) The Skatepark at East Coast Park
Yes this is a weird one but I think it may work just because it is slightly off-beat. The drab cement floors and the angled-ramps and box jump features are a great contrast for colourful flowy wedding gowns. The stepped and curved surfaces also offer lots of potential for more original poses and hence more interesting photos.
4) Wide open fields
These are not so easy to find, but at the top of my head one location stands out. Punggol. The grass field at the end of Punggol road is big and spacious and features swaying lallang plants. The soft willowy flowers (leaves?) are perfect for the soft-focus romantic daytime shot. Best when the light is low for a warm glow (and also to avoid getting sunburnt!) This spot may be commonly featured in other wedding photo albums, but its hard to deny its beauty if that's the look you are shooting for (another pun!).
5) Deserted beach
East Coast beach is too crowded and generally too littered with signs of human existence to be a good photography spot. West Coast beach is too built-up and 'new-looking' to provide the natural landscape backdrop that you probably want. Try little-known Sembawang beach. This spot is less populated, and should provide a stunning landscape background for your sunrise/sunset wedding shoot.

If I find more interesting spots on my next photography expedition around Singapore, I'll update here again.
Hope that helps you soon-to-be-married girls!
