(Wedding) Peiying and Ronald, 4 Jun 11, Grand Park City Hall

Ariel’s thoughts: 爱是不保留 (Unrestrained Love) Weddings are usually unforgettable , and Peiying and Ronald’s wedding reception was even more so for many reasons. I had looked forward to meeting the loving couple after learning of their nine-year courtship, during which both of them had spent two years in a long-distance relationship. One interesting titbit: Ronald had paid for air tickets for Peiying to return to Singapore every six months when she was studying in Perth, even though he was then…

(Wedding) Alvin and Catherine, 15 May 2011 (luncheon), Fours Seasons (Crescent Ballroom)

Ariel’s Thoughts: Built To Last This was a wedding lunch with all the works – which hotel serves Peking duck during pre-banquet reception! As usual, the band, comprising of Ian, Junxiong and me, set up the equipment early. To my surprise, Ian had brought his massive Bose amplifiers to the gig, which contributed warmth to the band’s sound. With a good start to the day, the wedding lunch began with the march-in song, At The Beginning, followed by a good…

(Wedding) Michael and Laura, 14 May 2011, Mandarin Oriental (Oriental Ballroom)

Melvin’s Thoughts: Beautiful… My deepest impression of this wedding is that everyone is so good looking. Both the bride and groom had great dress sense and looked perfect for each other. Their entourage of friends, both the bride and groom’s sister and brother gang were all gorgeously and charmingly dressed. It was a beautiful wedding in every sense of the word. Unique to all the weddings I had performed for, there was a best dressed competition. Of course the stars…

Khalid and Yanti, 27 Nov 10, Asian Civilisations Museum

Ariel’s Thoughts: I Love You (For Sentimental Reasons) I loved this wedding gig for many reasons! First, Khalid and Yanti kicked off the wedding reception with an open declaration of love and admiration for each other, which totally set the right tone and mood for their wedding reception. Second, the guests could mingle freely with the lovely couple and publicly dedicate their blessings to the couple. Third, we helped ourselves to a sumptuous buffet of Malay cuisine and spread of…

Kel Win & Hwan Cui, 07 Nov 2010, Marina Mandarin

Jerome’s thoughts: Over The Rainbow The ballroom was decorated with lots of balloon which seemed to transcend love that afternoon. It was quite a memorable wedding as Kel Win’s brother made a very touching speech about his love and happiness for Kel Win and Hwan Cui. There was also a very video clip about how Kel Win and Hwan Cui got together, and the interesting thing was, it was specially done up by both of them. Hwan Cui took the…

Ashley and Leo, 10 Oct 2010, Hotel InterContinental

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 爱是永恒 (Love Is Eternal) Ashley and Leo’s wedding moved me to tears. I could not think of a better way to spend 10.10.10, a night when apparently all couples were getting married. It was Leo’s dedication to Ashley which was so touching. He pulled out all stops to create special moments during the courtship, from gifts to holidays. The proposal, held at the Singapore Zoo, was elaborately planned. Someone even took a video of the whole process,…

Shunjie and Maria, 19 Sep 2010, Crescent Ballroom, Four Seasons

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Somewhere Over The Rainbow Maria and Shunjie got to know each other when they were studying in Brisbane, Australia. Even though Shunjie seemed the quiet, studious type, he made the first move (good for you!) by sending her an e-mail. Soon, they were having coffee after class and meals all the time. Another ‘excuse’ Shunjie used to spend more time with Maria was to help her with Chinese since she was studying that subject. Shunjie’s efforts paid…

Ariel’s thoughts: 真情流露 (My True Emotions Revealed) When Matthew, Wilson and I were invited to perform at David’s wedding, we were honestly blown away by the couple’s request for a 4-set gig. Full of expectations that this was gonna be a night to remember, I brought all my lyrics just in case the party could not be contained! And as it turned out, the celebrations went beyond all our expectations. First off, David and Theodore dispensed with all formalities and…
