Wendy and Caleb, 31 May 09, Waterfront Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Bing’s Thoughts: Sweet Happy Life I had a great time performing for Caleb and Wendy, that I was still slightly high the day after their wedding. (good way to beat the Monday blues!) The guests definitely have a part to play in this – they are one of the most spontaneous and fun-loving groups I had ever seen.  They gave loud cheers during the 1st march-in and laughed loudly over baby pictures of the newly weds during the morning.…

Glen and Pearlyne, 31 May 09, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Wedding Live Band)

Serene’s Thoughts: 月亮代表我的心 (The Moon Represents My Heart) When the groom dropped by to say hello to the band during our sound check, his “brothers” started teasing him, telling us that the groom can sing pretty well. We dropped a suggestion for him to surprise his bride with a song and the brothers happily joined in the pitch and there were, happily throwing all kinds of suggestions into the air, which the groom shyly turned down, telling us that he…

Ching Lin and Wai Leong, 17 May 09, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 分享 (Share) Ching Lin had caught our band several times when she attended her friends’ weddings – Lin Sia, Su Lee, and Lilian. I’m suspecting that this might be our longest word-of-mouth chain with Ching Lin’s as the 4th wedding we’re singing among this group of lovely ladies! Wai Leong was a tad nervous that evening, but Ching Lin was notably enjoying herself – it was a sight to behold, watching her sway her shoulders when she walked by…

Nicholas and Eileen, 10 May 09, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Wonderful Tonight Eileen loves to write, so I wasn’t surprised when she gave me a detailed and touching account of how Nicholas proposed. They were having dinner at the now-defunct “Top-Of-The-M”. According to Eileen, Nicholas “handed me a book from John Gray which I thought nothing of and proceed to put it in my bag. To his anguish. Haha. He asked me to open up and I saw a Post-It which wrote, “Will you marry me?”. Underneath…

Joe and Pingzi, 10 May 09, Galleria Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Wedding Live Band)

Adeline’s thoughts: 每天爱你多一些 (Love You A Little More Each Day) It was a cosy affair at the Galleria Ballroom. Joe and Pingzi are a really loving who were at ease throughout the wedding. I’m sure Joe must have felt elated and thrilled that he is finally married to his dearest but whatever jitters felt was sure hidden away from the eyes from the crowd. A very friendly couple, Joe even came to us twice to ensure that we had our…

Claire and Darren, 10 May 09, Main Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Wedding Live Band)

Jun Xiong’s thoughts: The Gift When I first met Darren and Claire, I really envied both their “model-like” height and figure: Darren, a man of few words, was tall, slender and smart while Claire, our stunningly beautiful bride, matched his height comfortably with a livelier and chattier disposition. What a perfect match! And I was also surprised when Claire shared that their love story which revealed that they officially got together only on 1st of December 2008 – cos’ they…

Vincent and Lynette, 12 Mar 09, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: My Love Will Get You Home It was amazing to read what Lynette wrote to me about their fateful encounter and get together: “Lynette’s good friends are Indonesian and from the same city as Vincent. Vincent & Lynette first met when Lynette went to Indonesia and was introduced to each other by their friends around February 2006. That time Vincent and Lynette were not really acquainted. It was around June 2006 when Vincent moved to Singapore for work…

(Wedding) Silas and Gynn, 8 Dec 08, Grand Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: When My Heart Is Full Silas fell hard for Gynn when they were both studying in University. It could be because of Gynn’s athletic prowess on the basketball court. I’m sure the leggy beauty had a gaggle of admirers and suitors, so what tipped the balance in Silas’ favour? Before the banquet began, he admitted to me in mock dismay that he took a while to make his move on Gynn because he wasn’t a looker. But,…

(Wedding) Dawn and Jackson, 27 Nov 08, Grand Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 爱是永恒 (Love Is Forever) Rejection was the dreaded R word Jackson had face in the early days of her friendship with Dawn. Everytime he tried to bring the relationship to another level, Dawn poured cold water on his hopes. Luckily for Jackson, he did not take no for an answer, and his dogged perserverance and his determination to be a better person won Dawn over in the end. The entire story had as many S-curves and U-turns…

(Wedding) Jin Wei and Kristy, 25 Oct 08, Grand Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Juliet’s thoughts: The Nearness Of You It’s been a while since I sang an all-English repertoire for a wedding, which is pretty interesting for a change. The night began with light jazz numbers such as Dream A Little Dream and The Nearness Of You, warming up to uptempo standards like Cheek To Cheek and Fly Me To The Moon gradually. All photos in this entry were taken by Juliet It’s my first with Edward and it’s also been a while…

(Wedding) Joyce and Don, 18 Oct 08, Pavilion, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Love Me Tender A late afternoon downpour threatened to dash all of Joyce and Don’s hopes of an al fresco wedding celebration. Miraculously, the rain clouds dissipated at 5pm, as if punctured by a huge needle. The frowns on all the faces of the hotel staff went away, replaced by thankful smiles and a renewed energy to Get Things Moving again. The tables, the flowers and the cake were brought out of storage in quick sucession, until…

(Wedding) Mei Lan and Simon, 18 Oct 08, Waterfront Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 梅兰梅兰我爱你 (Mei Lan, Mei Lan, I Love You) Simon was in a quandary. He was often late for school, and his name appeared quite often in the Head Prefect’s books. What could he do? “When you can’t beat them, join them!” he thought. So he started to make friends with the Head Prefect, whose name was — I’m sure you’d have guessed it by now — Mei Lan! Mei Lan and Simon’s relationship began when they were…

(Wedding) Nicole and Issac, 16 Sep 08, Waterfront Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Bevlyn’s thoughts: Let’s start from here A happy bride is a beautiful bride. The joy and happiness emancipating from Nicole’s face and smile, and the sparkle in her eyes were hard to miss that evening. Nicole did an excellent choice of getting the band to kick start the event with Joanna Wong’s “Let’s Start From Here” Let’s start from here, lose the past Change our minds, we don′t need a finish line Let’s take this chance don’t think too deep…

(Wedding) Jason and Biying, 31 Aug 08, Riverfront Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Bevlyn’s thoughts: 疼你的責任 (Duty To Love You) Jason and Biying came across to me as a couple with a very good sense of humour. You’ll know why from this: On how they got to know each other: Jason: We were ex-collegues from a former company, working in different departments though. We got to know each other better through friends within the company. Biying: Okay, yeah we were ex-colleagues. But I only know his name. Not enough to make me want…

Jo-Lyn and Yew Minh, 19 Jul 08, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: So She Dances One day, Jo-Lyn remarked to Yew Minh, “You know Minh, I’d love to take up dance lessons.” Minh’s reply, “Me too!” The dance they both decided to learn was the Waltz, commonly known as the dance of love for its fluid and graceful movements. And what better occasion to showcase their dancing skills than their wedding? And what better song than So She Dances by Josh Groban? I fell in love with it upon…

Irene and Vincent, 13 Jul 08, Grand Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Hui Bing’s thoughts: Always I think it’s great that more couples are using more creative ways to showcase their love journey to their guests during their wedding dinners – be it a simple powerpoint presentation, speeches or anecdotes shared by friends, or more seen at wedding dinners recently, the use of animation, as in the case of Irene and Vincent. The animation took all of us back in time, as it replayed some of the significant scenes of Irene and…

Florence and Edmund, 28 Jun 08, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Bevlyn’s thoughts: It’s In The Way You Love Me Edmund and Florence’s getting together is really courtesy of Citibank. They were colleagues at Citibank to start with, but a team outing to KL was really what started the undercurrents of the fountain of love. In Florence’s own words, “We initially wanted to keep the relationship under wraps but was caught ‘red handed’ by our colleague when we finished a midnight movie @ Orchard Cineplex…so all the drilling started the following…

Kent and Iin, 7 Jun 08, Galleria Room, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Four Words Some couples prefer their weddings to be solemn and quiet affairs. Not Kent. He had a corny sense of humour, and he wasn’t too shy to show it. Here’s how he began his speech: “To prepare my speech, I sought the help of Google, and I found this… Roses are red Violets are blue Sugar is sweet So are you!“ Then he looked purposefully at the blushing Iin, who was probably too tickled to say…

Kenneth and Yuh Woei, 15 Oct 06, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 至少还有你 (At Least There Is You) L-R: Kenneth, Hsin Yeow and Yuh WoeiFive minutes before the couple were about to march-in, I asked Yuh Woei, “Would you like to sing for Kenneth?” Yuh Woei nodded nervously, and chose Sandy Lam’s 至少还有你 (At Least There Is You). Then I dashed back into the ballroom, and wrote the lyrics on a sheet of paper from memory. When I announced that Yuh Woei would be singing a song, there was…

Jo-Lynn and Nigel, 6 May 06, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Fly Me To The Where? Nigel’s training to be a pilot, so I couldn’t help but tease him a bit before singing the song Fly Me To The Moon. “Nigel, Jo-Lynn has set you a task: you’ll have to fly her the moon. So start building that rocket ship now!” Nigel gamely stood up and waved his hand in agreement. They were clearly in love, because their relationship withstood the test of time and distance. Almost half…
