(Wedding) Raymond & Jasmine, 23 Apr 11, Shutters Restaurant & Glass Pavilion (Amara Sanctuary)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Love Will Find A Way “37 years ago, a ‘Chan’ married a ‘Lee’. 37 years later, the same thing happened!’ Raymond’s father best summed up the miracles which happened to Raymond and Jasmine’s families. Raymond’s father (a ‘Chan’ from Malaysia), married his mother (a ‘Lee’ from China) 37 years ago. The history repeated itself at Raymond’s wedding, for Jasmine is also a ‘Lee’ who came to Singapore from China. We also heard from Raymond and Jasmine’s colleagues who…

Jaime & Timothy, 13 Feb 11, Amara Sanctuary Resort

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Happy Together “Sit Drink and be Married” – This was what I keep seeing through the wedding. I know it sounds stupid, but it did make me loosen myself up upon seeing that, cos yes, it sounded like everyone was supposed to have fun! Seeing all the attention put into the details in this wedding, it’s hard to imagine that Jaime had organised everything…. from US! The band performed a good 20minutes when the guests started entering the…

Bjoern and Agnes, 13 Nov 2010, Amara Sanctuary, Sentosa

Bevlyn's Thoughts: I Finally Found Someone I got to know Bjoern and Agnes through Fang Ting and Shu Hong…even though they do not know each other. I was singing at the latter's outdoor wedding at the beach at Rasa Sentosa, and Bjoern and Agnes heard my band when they were dining nearby. I was invited over by a waitress and voila, the rest was history! I have to say though, that at that point, I was doubtful that Bjoern and Agnes…

Andrew and Sara, 23 Oct 2010, Shutters Restaurant, Amara Sancturay

Judy’s thoughts: You Mean Everything to Me It was a sunny Saturday afternoon as Boon Chye, Matthew and I made our way to Amara Sancuary. It was my first time performing there and that made me rather excited. The hotel was designed in a way that reminded me very much of a spa, and I love spas so it was a very welcoming sight. As the 3 of us took a little short walk towards the restaurant, I envisioned a…

Kangwei and Shuqin, 18 Jul 2010, Amara Sanctuary, Sentosa (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: More Than Words Everyone invited to the wedding dinner of Shuqin and Kangwei could tell how in love and committed they are to each other; Shuqin put it loud and clear to Kangwei in her thank you speech, “I couldn’t have made it without you (through all the ups and downs in her life)…You’re probably the best thing that ever happened to me.” Kangwei thanked his wife too, but honestly I remember more of the anecdote revealed by…

Joseph and Eeling, 15 May 2010, Amara Sanctuary (Wedding Live Band)

Juliet’s thoughts: Lovin’ You My first time gigging with James on Bass, though I’ve witnessed his chops as an audience before. He’s just as wonderful a bass player as a pianist! Niq and Sharon were terrific that night, and we all had a really good time just swinging the night away to jazz standards and revamping old classics. The couple looked fantastic and it was great to be able to share their joy. I loved the songs selected by the…

Kim Boon and Charlina, 11 Apr 2010, Amara Sanctuary Resort (Sentosa) (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: A Love That Will Last If you’re single and have a close friend of the opposite sex who likes to bicker with you, who knows, that person could be the one for you! Okay, I get that it’s too simplistic a view.  But for Charlina and Kim Boon, the initial dislike Charlina had for her eventual knight-in-shining-armour became an attraction, which blossomed into love.  In spite of the constant arguments, there was an undeniable chemistry between them. Some of their…

Eugenia and Alvin, 2 Jan 2010, Amara Santuary (Sentosa) (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: Two Words This is a couple who got to know each other in a foreign land (London), decided to get married after 4 months of dating, and got married all within a year. Wow! I suppose when you meet The One, it doesn’t have to take long. 🙂 The 2 emcees were good friends of the couple, and their chemistry was indeed the highlight of the evening. It was an evening shared, and contributed by good friends, who…

Siong Chye and Eileen, 5 Dec 09, Amara Sanctuary Resort (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 天使 (Angel) Siong Chye and Eileen were colleagues, and were working together to organise community events. Being in the same company volleyball team also helped them understand each other better. The relationship grew stronger with each passing day. Eileen told me Siong Chye proposed to her on a large grassland at Woodlands Drive 17, beside the Singapore Sports School, and went back to it to take pre-wedding photographs. The site also overlooks their new house. No worries…

Jesslyn and Sterling, 31 Oct 09, Glass Pavilion, Amara Sanctuary Resort (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Better Together Holding a wedding outdoors can be a risky thing, given the temper tantrums of our tropical weather. When I reached Amara Sanctuary Resort on 31 Oct afternoon, the blazing sun showed no signs of abating. I had to swallow my words two hours later, when dark clouds ate up the sun, spat out a light drizzle which swiftly turned into a downpour. Luckily, Jesslyn’s sunny disposition kept rain clouds at bay for about two crucial…

Georgina and Vincent, 4 Oct 09, Amara Sanctuary (Wedding Live Band)

Ji Xiang’s Thoughts: Been Around The World Hui Bing and I always enjoy performing at Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa, as it always feels like you are going on a short ‘getaway’ while going on Sentosa Gateway from mainland Singapore. Nestled within the tropical gardens on the hillside of Sentosa’s popular Palawan Beach, the crew and managers at Amara Sanctuary are also very polite and professional. We are always able to get good EQ from the friendly AV coordinator. The first…

Eileen and Alan, 28 Jun 09, Amara Sanctuary Resort, Sentosa (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Bing’s Thoughts: Thank You I have been very late penning this blog entry as I was quite tied up over the past few weeks. But I have no problem recollecting the happy moments from Eileen and Alan’s wedding. Eileen and Alan came specially to meet me to discuss their wedding programme and it was great to be able to speak to them in advance so that I can see how the band can help make this joyous occasion more memorable.…

Connie and Max, 18 Apr 09, Amara Sanctuary Resort (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 玫瑰玫瑰我愛你 (Rose, Rose, I Love You) Constance (aka Connie) and Max’s wedding scores for the most innovative march-in music ever! I thought I’d heard them all, but then the emcee went onstage to demonstrate how to make bird calls using the wedding favours (a special whistle). Five minutes later, the entire ballroom rang with resounding shrill tweets that heralded the second entrance of Connie and Max. It was nothing like I’d ever seen before, and I loved…

(Wedding) Serene and Alvin, 27 Nov 08, Amara Sanctuary Resort & Spa

Hui Bing’s thoughts: Crazy Little Thing Called Love There is something different about going to a wedding not on mainland Singapore. Maybe it was the feeling of going to another island while traveling over the ocean across Sentosa Gateway. Or the sight of lush greenery and seeing the signs leading to the various attractions on Sentosa, while we were traveling to the hotel. Anyway, it was a great feeling to be back at the lovely Amara Sanctuary Resort & Spa…

Joelle and Kevin, 20 Jul 08, Amara Sanctuary

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Can’t Help Falling In Love Famous last words. I had a bit of time after Calvin and Misako’s wedding, so I popped over to Amara Sanctuary to look for Joelle. She was getting ready for the solemnisation ceremony at the Glass Pavilion, and took time to chat with me. Those few minutes made all the difference to how the wedding turned out. Joelle told me that Kevin was not the “romantic sort.” And she would be “very…
