Juanita and Darren, 15 Aug 09, Mandarin Oriental (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Somewhere Only We Know In the cynical world we live in, can love still last forever? Or is it enough to be in love right now? Darren would always be remembered as the groom who elicited a collective gasp of horror when he called Juanita “my current wife” and “hopefully my eternal happiness” during his speech. To Juanita’s credit, she hardly batted an eyelid and playfully jabbed Darren’s butt in mock protest. The guests were discerning enough…

Cheryl and Gabriel, 8 Aug 09, Tower Ballroom, Shangri La (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: So Amazing Cheryl and Gabriel clearly believe in not holding back when it comes to wedding planning. Theirs was one of the most memorable weddings I’ve attended this year. And here are some reasons why. Project Runway was the theme, and the couple selected the talented team from Boenga to translate their ideas from mere scribblings on a page to gorgeous reality. Mannequins wearing the some gorgeous threads (from Boenga!) were placed right in the centre of…

(Wedding Live Band) Eran and Nam Na, 20 Dec 08, Parkroyal (Beach Road)

Jun Xiong’s thoughts: Quando Quando Quando Advice to all grooms: if bridesmaids insist that you sing a song before you can meet your bride, do what Eran did: choose one of the easiest songs ever written, 小薇 (Xiao Wei), then change the lyrics to fit in your beloved bride’s name. Guaranteed to make doors open for you. If it still doesn’t work, then you just have to prepare a bigger ang pow 🙂 有一个美丽的小女孩 她的名字叫作 (insert name of bride) 她有双温柔的眼睛…

(Wedding) Kenny and Rei, 22 Sep 08, Marriott

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: The Water Is Wide Kenny and Rei wanted to enter the ballroom to the tune of Can’t Help Falling In Love, and they chose Darren Hayes’ soulful version of the song. Gosh, I sweated buckets over it, trying to find a way to be true to the version without sounding straining my vocal chords in the process. Luckily, Kenny trusted me enough, and allowed me to inject my own style into the song. And I have to…

(Wedding) Anne and Daniel, 20 Sep 08, Sentosa Resort & Spa

Bevlyn’s thoughts: 爱很简单 (Love Is Very Simple) Anne’s good friend since their primary school days in Kuantan, Lisa, made an impression that evening with her digs at Daniel. As a surprise gift for Anne, Lisa came up with a special photo-montage of Anne and Daniel through the years, but not without adding in text lines in between the pictures to hint how lucky a man Daniel is to be able to be with Anne. In her speech, Lisa described how…

(Wedding) Johnson and Nicole, 14 Sep 08, East India Room, Raffles Hotel

Serene & Jonathan’s thoughts: She’s Got A Way The wedding of Johnson and Nicole was one full of beautiful and sweet surprises. Surprise #1 The couple had planned a little surprise twist for their first march-in, in which the band had a part to play. When the emcee (Junxiong) invited the guests to rise and welcome the couple, Jonathan (Pianist) and Lim Hui (Violinist) started playing the classical wedding march, and the guests applauded enthusiastically, eager to catch a glimpse…

(Wedding) Wei Sing and Grace, 14 Sep 08, Garden Suite, Mandarin Oriental

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Endless Love Wei Sing and Grace share a love so effusive and strong, it touches people around them. In their own words: Grace: “I got to know this wonderful guy of mine through Union Camp. Didn’t have a strong impression of him initially; the few times I spoke to him was to ask for bread (I was really hungry while he was an efficient Welfare I/C)! Having known him for nearly 2 years, everyone agrees that WS…

(Wedding) Fabian and Yenni, 13 Sep 08, Raffles Hotel

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Lovely An e-mail from Yenni: “Hi Hsin Yeow, This is Yenni. I am very happy that we are finally going to engage your band to play at our wedding!!!!! When we met at Chijmes the other time, my boyfriend and I were planning our honeymoon in Alaska and we were debating on whether to splurge on a particular excursion involving a helicopter and a dog sledging trip. We agreed to go for that excursion trip, as we…

(Wedding) Rena and Sax, 9 Sep 08, Swissotel Merchant Court

Jonathan Ang’s thoughts: Forever Love Sax & Rena’s wedding was quite a welcome departure from what I usually do at ALD weddings. Instead of playing the keyboard, I filled in the role of emcee and singer instead, with Clarence on the guitar. Also, instead of going for a full set of songs, the couple opted to go for a small selections of songs to highlight the important moments of the dinner, while Clarence would charm guests with a repertoire of…

(Wedding) Lawrence and Wendy, 31 Aug 08, Mandai Orchid Garden

Serene’s thoughts: 小夫妻 (Little Couple) It is a wonderful feeling to spend a Sunday morning amongst lush greenery and beautiful orchids. Lawrence and Wendy held their solemnization and wedding lunch banquet at the lovely Mandai Orchid Gardens 31 August 2008, and I am sure like myself, their guests walked away with a beautiful and unique experience. The couple exchanged their vows in a little tentage surrounded by the tranquil of the gardens. After the solemnization ceremony, guests were encouraged to…

Belinda and Leung, 8 Aug 08, Poolside, Swissotel The Stamford

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 难得有情人(Hard To Find A Lover Like You) A new venue, a new line-up. Endless possibilities. Juliet, Jonathan and Tim braved the elements by performing al fresco, at the poolside of Fairmont Singapore. Belinda wanted some Cantonese numbers to dedicate to her in-laws, so Juliet accepted the challenge and sang a trio of Cantopop numbers: 难得有情人(Hard To Find A Lover Like You), 爱是永恒 (Love Is Eternal) and 追 (Chase). The band even attracted the attention of hotel guests…

Li Ling and Sudhir, 27 Jul 08, Ritz Carlton

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Bridge Over Troubled Water Dancing tots are becoming a regular fixture at our wedding performances. A day ago, two boys joined me on the stage and danced in wild abandon. At Sudhir and Li Ling’s wedding, a beautiful little girl boogied energetically to the jazz standards I was singing. We were completely charmed by her. Li Ling and Sudhir were friends for several years before love bloomed two years ago. I imagined it to be something like…

Calvin and Misako, 20 Jul 08, Pavilion Ballroom, Rasa Sentosa

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Love Love Love When Calvin sent me an e-mail with the programme for their wedding lunch reception one day, he included a document called “bio.doc”. I opened it, and to my surprise, it was a page of Calvin and Misako’s “bio-stats”, listing their birthdays, zodiac signs, favourite colours and hobbies. Here are three of the most interesting (in my opinion) ones. Calvin’s secret ambition: Sail around the world! Misako’s secret ambition: Fashion model (Misako certainly has what…

Gary and Faith, 13 Jul 08, Marriott

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: I’ve Dreamed Of You How cool is it when the couple dances right in front of you while you’re singing? That’s what Gary and Faith did, and they danced and sang For Once In My Life with me. Their impromptu jig came complete with playful actions, like when Faith gently slid a finger down Gary’s cheek while I was singing, “For once, I can say, this is mine, you can’t take it!” I like. Gary gave me…

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…

Wei Ping and Kenny, 8 Jun 08, Orchard Hotel

Jonathan Ang’s thoughts: The Way You Look Tonight Wei Ping and Kenny’s wedding was a straightforward yet elegant affair which the band members and myself enjoyed playing at. The couple decided to go for something on a smaller scale, a ballroom with only 15 tables or so. Personally, I very much enjoy playing at such settings as the atmosphere is always more cozy and intimate. Thankfully, the couple managed to book edmundleong.com in time for him to take these beautiful…

Jiexiang and Corine, 7 Jun 08, Seletar Country Club

Jonathan Ang’s thoughts: Fly Me To The Moon Jie Xiang and Corine’s wedding marked the first time I performed at Seletar Country Club. For those who aren’t too familiar with local geography, Seletar Country Club is tucked away in northeastern Singapore, right beside Lower Seletar Reservoir and Seletar Airport. Getting there is a tad tricky, as it isn’t near any main roads. But with seclusion comes the beauty of pristine nature, and it was in this setting that Jie Xiang…

Joshua and Jorgina, 24 Feb 08, Canning Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: (I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons Bevlyn and I were supposed to sing for Rachel and Stephen on 24 Feb, but as fate would have it, the latter couple brought forward their wedding celebrations, so we got to sing for Joshua and Jorgina after all. I could help laughing when I read about how Jorgina’s first impression of Joshua. She wrote, “I haven’t told anyone about this, but my first impression of Joshua was not so good……
