(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) Chee Kai and Jaslin, 14 May 2011, Carlton (Empress Ballroom)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 爱很简单 (Love is Simple) Chee Kai and Jaslin met about three years ago, and their common love for good food and exercise attracted them to each other. A hobby of theirs is running marathons together! Everything fell in place rather quickly, and it seemed quite natural for them to start planning their marriage within a relatively short period of courtship. The wedding took place in the Empress ballroom of the newly renovted Carlton Hotel. It was a…

(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…

Dino and Sheik Khei, 15 Jan 2011, Resorts World

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Eternal LoveThis wedding marked our first time performing at Resorts World, and it was indeed something I was looking forward to. In fact, it was my first time stepping into Resorts World! If you have not stepped into the ballrooms at Resorts World, here’s a sneak preview:  Taken from the elevated stage (basically this is our view when we perform hihi, or when you give your speech): Love the starry starry ceiling! They even have a fountain on…

Simon & Dening, 08 Jan 2011, Fullerton (Straits Room)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Time After Time A week later, I’m back in this beautiful white ballroom for Simon and Dening’s wedding. I knew that the couple would be having their solemnization at the rooftop, and the banquet manager whom I know well cajoled me to leave my sound check for a while to go up and see for myself the beautiful scenery. True enough, the view was breath-taking, what an excellent place to exchange your vows! Simon hails from UK, and…

Stephen & May Yee, 18 Dec 2010 (Morning), Sentosa Room, Capella

Ian’s Thoughts: This is the Day I had a prior rehearsal with May Yee and her siblings (Te Jinn and Min Hui, the singers for the day) which went without a hitch. As I set up my gear, I felt really good about this gig – working with talented and able singers, as well as experienced and creative musicians in the form of Clarence and Richard. Another reason for the good feeling – we were going to play praise and worship…

Kay and Karen, 17 Dec 2010, Marina Mandarin

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Beautiful Sunday It was a really enjoyable night for me. First of all, Kay and Karen were a very friendly couple.  They kept checking with us if we were all right, despite having a million other things to take care of. The crowd was also very appreciative, and they kept giving us song requests.  It’s not often that we get people singing along with us without our asking.  But that’s what happened.  When I was singing “Beautiful Sunday”, I…

Kok Keong and Charmaine, 12 Dec 2010, Goodwood Park Hotel

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: All The Way The layout of this wedding gave me a pleasant surprise! Instead of having the VIP table right in front of the ballroom…it was on the stage. Check out the funky wedding cake too: I particularly enjoyed the speeches by 2 special friends of the couple. Wenshan, who is a friend of Kok Keong for 15 years, shared with us his memories of meeting Kok Keong for the first time in school – Kok Keong had…

Alvin and Grace, 28 Nov 2010, Goodwood Park (Tudor Ballroom)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Just The Way You Are Ian and Yili arrived early at the Mayfair pool of Goodwood Park Hotel in preparation for Alvin and Grace’s solemnisation. It is increasingly ‘chic’ to have ‘live’ music at solemnisations, and Grace and Alvin had requested for the duo to perform ‘Canon-in-D’ for their march-in. 🙂 At Tudor ballroom, preparations were in full force to welcome all the guests for the banquet. This is one of them, and I think it’s a brilliant…

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…

Andy and Shirley, 20 Nov 2010, Plaza Parkroyal

Felicia’s thoughts: Sweet!! Andy and Shirley are really sweetness personified. (Think Teddy Bears on proposal day) Andy is the traffic warden at St Anne’s church, the goodie-two-shoes well loved by everyone. Shirley is the adorable lady with a dazzling smile who won his heart. Earlier in the day, we got to see the video of Andy doing all the impossible tasks assigned by his bride’s sister (the full package – from the very skillful painting "Wo Ai Ni" with a…

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…

Desmond and Chee Koon, 7 Nov 2010, Marina Bay Sands (Simpor Junior Ballroom)

Junxiong’s thoughts: Unforgettable! 7th Nov is indeed an unforgettable day for Desmond and Chee Koon: they were engaged in Las Vegas on 7th Nov 2008, held their Chinese wedding banquet on 7th Nov 2010, and 7th Nov is also the birthday of our lovely bride, Chee Koon! To complement it, Desmond gave Chee Koon a pleasant surprise by celebrating her birthday on the stage with all the guests during the wedding banquet. What a sweet and thoughtful partner he is.…

Willy and Isabelle, 23 Oct 2010, Fullerton Hotel (Straits Room)

Juliet’s Thoughts: Sempurna It was a special day for the local chinese couples for some reason, and for me it was extra special cuz having language fetishes as i somewhat do. I got a chance to learn a japanese song sung by beautiful singer with a gorgeous voice, Yuna Ito on Precious, and an Indonesian song called Sempurna (which as i found out means Perfect). Beautiful melodies, wonderful arrangements, true to their contexts, that really inspired me. I love new…

Lawrence and Jasmine, 18 Sep 2010, Canning Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford (Wedding Live Band)

Tanya’s Thoughts: Lady In Red Opening the night of celebrations was literally a ‘small’ surprise planned by Lawrence and Jasmine, where they had little flower girls and page boys do a march-in ahead of them. It was also the largest contingent of brothers that we’ve ever seen – all 13 of them, lending their support to the groom in his early morning efforts to pick up the bride. Impressive! And they were in top form again at night, as demonstrated in the…

Carmy and Craig, 12 Sep 2010, Raffles Hotel Lawn & East India Rooms (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: I’m Beginning To See The Light Carmy probably never imagine she’d find true love on the other end of the world. According to Carmy’s good girlfriend, when she arrived in Bahrain, they used to lament at the lack of quality dates – the available but bad dates are these, aplenty in the Middle East. The high quality ones were rare, that was, until Craig joined Carmy’s company. It was a small but cosy wedding with Craig’s family flown…
