Bevlyn’s Concert @ Recital Studio, Esplanade on 29 Jul 2011 (don’t miss this!)

 Bevlyn’s Thoughts: ‘Feel About You’ My new album ‘Feel About You‘ is going to be released…. very soon! I don’t know the date yet (sometime in July), but one thing for sure is… a concert! Together with a fantastic band lineup, I’ll be performing songs from this album, which consists of a good mixture of covers (for eg. You belong to me, Just the two of us, My eyes adored you etc…) and originals (which I’ve written over the years…

(Wedding) Alexandre and Cheng Teng, 6 May 2011, Four Seasons (Crescent Ballroom)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: “For Me Formidable” This is another classic example which shows that love holds no boundaries, and in fact Cupid seems to be crossing boundaries more and more these days! Alexandre and Cheng Teng got acquainted a few years ago when he came from Switzerland to Singapore for work. Apparently Cupid had successfully worked his magic on the two of them! Having sung many French songs at weddings, nothing excites (and worries) more than singing them infront of people…

(Wedding) Lee Sung and Nellie, 20 Feb 2011, Marina Mandarin (Vanda Ballroom)

Jeremy’s Thoughts: All Star Concert ~!!! I’ve experienced one or two guests or the groom coming to the stage to sing with the band but this is by far the first wedding I experienced so many friends and relatives of the bride and groom coming up and to perform for the occasion and boy were they good! And I’m not saying for the sake of it! From as little as age 10 and the other 18, two nieces of the…

Ronny & Huiwen, 12 Feb 2011, Four Seasons (Main Ballroom)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: That’s Amore This wedding marks the first time I witness an emcee speaking in Hokkien for more than 80% of the time (the 20% was in English)! Emcee, Eugene, is a good friend of the couple, and hearing him address the guests and explain everything in Hokkien just warmed my heart – I’m happy to say that I understood everything (contextually) he said! The 1st march-in song was a romantic tune called ‘That’s Amore’ and the couple had…

Jeffrey and Carlyn, 9 Jan 2011, Pan Pacific (Pacific Ballroom)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 你的名字我的姓氏 (Your Name My Surname) This is a fairytale story, and the fairy god-mother is an inanimate object named ‘Chupa Chaps‘. (Photo courtesy of Jon Lim photography) Winning Carlyn’s heart was not easy, and in a bid to do so, Jeffrey decided to collect all the ‘limited edition’ flavour of Chupa Chaps at that time. He thought, ‘How difficult could that be?’. Things turned out to be tedious as he needed to comb through every 7-11 and Cheers outlet…

Charles and Keisha, 2 Jan 2011, Fullerton (Straits Room)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 一只小雨伞 (Tiny Umbrella) This is a fun, relaxed wedding where everyone enjoyed themselves. Check out this Molten Brown wedding favour: One of the best things I love about weddings, is to learn about how a couple met and fall in love. Charles and Keisha invited their match-maker (Charles’ work colleague) to share just that with everyone. She recounted how she was seated next to Charles one day and was surprised to learn that Charles was still a ‘diamond bachelor’.…

Sarah and Andre, 26 Dec 2010, Hilltop Crystall Ballroom, Bukit Batok CSC (Civil Service Club)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: If We Hold On Together The Hilltop Crystal ballroom must count among the top ballrooms in Singapore with the longest aisle. Andre and Sarah took a nice ‘stroll’ down the aisle for the march-in with friends and families greeting them, and not forgetting party poppers etc. We love the song selections, which includes the crowd-pleasing ballads, but interestingly, also the quirky songs like:  Flightless Bird American Mouth   The Blower’s Daughter But none of the above song selection…

Aloysius and Patricia, 17 Nov 2010, Raffles Hotel (Main Ballroom)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: At Last It’s not easy coordinating a wedding when you are overseas, but Aloysius and Patricia did just that. After being away for a few years, they finally came back to host the wedding dinner and caught up with many family members and friends. Among 2 of them were Aloysius’ good friends who seemed very happy to share with the guests about the young Aloysius they once knew: Rodney, Aloysius’ childhood friend doing an imitation of how Aloysius…

Rachel and Ken, 5 Nov 2010, Concorde Hotel

Juliet’s Thoughts: 玫瑰玫瑰我爱你 (Rose Rose I Love You) Just when i thought there could not be new ways of doing march-ins, Ken and Rachel surprised us with their very sensuous 2nd march-in, with bride Rachel sashaying down the red carpet and the groom striding down to meet into a dance, so much that that’s all i can think about to start this blog entry. I found myself feeling those tears wellin’ up whilst watching their pre-march-in videos, and surprised myself. It’s when…

Rosalind and Jae, 4 Nov 2010, Swissotel Merchart Court

Jerome’s thoughts: 你最珍贵 (You’re The Most Precious) Singing has never been easy for Rosalind and Jae, yet they were game enough to sing for their 2nd march in, infront of their family members and friends! It was a very brilliant act, and the family members and the rest of the guests were surprised and awed! Judy, my female singer, played up the entertainment by inviting a guest to dance and sing with her for several songs. The guest was very…

Christine and Eugene, 20 Oct 2010, One Rochester

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Two Is Better Than One It was a beautiful, breezy evening at One Rochester. Perfect for a wedding. Holding it at One Rochester made the mood decidedly lighter and buoyant than a traditional wedding ceremony, as the lush greenery and garden setting delighted the senses. When Christine and Eugene decided to add a female singer to the band a few days before their wedding, they also made the wise decision to change the song list by inserting…

Gavin and Diana, 3 Oct 2010, Gallery Ballroom, Traders Hotel

Tanya’s thoughts: 家后 (Queen Of The House) It was surprises galore on the night of Gavin’s and Diana’s big day. Gavin prepared a special number, 家后 dedicated to both the couple’s parents. His smooth vocals shone through and the audience were thoroughly thrilled with his performance. The night’s climax had to be during the yam seng ceremony..Halfway through, just before the third toast, the emcee who was also part of the troop of brothers, announced (very impishly) that the brothers…

Agnes and Zai, 2 Oct 2010, MEGU, Singapore Flyer

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: From This Moment I was overjoyed when I received Agnes’ feedback. Indeed my aim is not to come across like a hired vendor when I take on additional duties as a host. I want to sound like I have known the couple for years. Agnes and Zai made it easy for me too, by sharing with me details of their relationship. They also sang a duet – From This Moment. Zai had already demonstrated his singing prowess…

Eddie and Agnes, 9 Sep 2010, Marriott (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 梁山伯与茱丽叶 (Lian Shan Bo And Juliet) Watching Eddie and Agnes’ wedding video was akin to going back in time and re-living the significant moments of an enduring and loving relationship. The first date, first movie (there was a photo of the movie stub!), proposal…all these were documented and shown in the video. We could also see the subtle differences in Eddie’s -ahem- proportions. His emcee couldn’t help but tease Eddie for looking different from his slimmer, younger…

Steven and Charlotte, 3 Jul 2010, Meritus Mandarin (Mandarin Court) (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: 爱的路上只有我和你 (You And Me On The Road To Love) Steven is one of the rare grooms I’d met who was really daring to serenade his bride. During rehearsal, he was full of ideas and even got James to sing 1 verse of the song before he ‘sings-in’ during 2nd march-in with Charlotte by his side. James and I were really impressed by his confidence – he sang this lovely song 爱的路上只有我和你 (You and Me on the Road to Love),…

David and Joanne, 3 Jul 2010, Pacific Ballroom, Pan Pacific (Wedding Live Band)

Imelda’s thoughts: Time Of Your Life One of the qualities David’s best man – Tim described of David was that he was very creative. Instead of the usual “on the knees” proposal, David had cleverly and discreetly placed the proposal ring in Joanne’s pocket. I agree that David is indeed very creative. This was the poem he wrote for Joanne when he picked her up the morning of the wedding: How lucky I am that you’re not bimbotic How lucky…

The Estuary Celebration Dinner, 1 Jul 2010, MEGU (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Band: James and Ivan Compliments: Hi Hsin Yeow, I’m very well, thank you! The 2 performers were great! My guests weren’t the spontaneous kind so there were not much applause or “reaction” from them, but after the event, they came up to me and commented that they enjoyed the music very much. Please refer to the photos attached. Thanks again! Best regards, Audrey

Ivan and Wynnie, 26 Jun 2010, Atrium Suites, Mandarin Oriental (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: The Perfect Year Sparks didn’t fly when Ivan and Wynnie first met each other. In Ivan’s words, she was “just another girl at the office.” As both were against office romances, their relationship never developed beyond the confines of the office. But all that changed when Ivan decided to leave the company. Before he did, he plucked up his courage, downed a few (kidding) and asked Wynnie out for supper one night. That one chance he took…
