What is ROM?
I thought it was Read Only Memory, but seems to have a different meaning here.

my friend ROM refers to Registry Of Marriage

Not much of a difference. Sequence is the same. Go with the flow. The only best thing at the ROMM is that you have more space to roam around and space to shoot as their relatives/friends will be sittting on chairs rather than cramping around you when the event is at home. The couple, 'kadi', bride's dad and the witness will be on a higher platform stage. I would say more proper and organised. The only rushed thing is that you have to take quite a number of group photo of friends and relatives (subject to the attendance) with the couple on the prepared decorated dias. Have to be quick cos the ROMM give you like 5 to 10mins on that. At times you may need to pose and shoot the couple too. After the solomanisation, normaly they will return home and have a simple feast either the norm void-deck thingy or just at home. Very rare on restaurants or hotel. But you never know. Hardly, the couple would want to be photographed around fort canning. But no harm asking them. It depends on the time schedule. Hope it does help.
