Pei Xu and Mei Qi, 20 Nov 2010, Swissotel The Stamford

Jo’s thoughts: Love, Me I wasn’t able to make many weddings in November due to another performance project, but I’m just glad that I was able to make this one. Pei Xu and Mei Qi had popped down to another wedding where I had been singing at a poolside, to meet me and talk about possibilities for performing for them. Not knowing who the goodlooking twosome walking in my direction were, I was already jealous of the woman’s svelte figure…

Michelle and Gerald, 13 Nov 2010, Padang/Collyer Ballrooms, Swissotel The Stamford

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Lucky Was it fate that brought Michelle and Gerald together? They had met each other eight years ago, but no sparks flew until six years later, when Michelle and Gerald ended up working together as colleagues. They joined the company within a day of each other, and ended up being buddies at work as they had to be each other’s backup. According to Michelle, “things progressed very fast and we got together soon after.” Gerald proposed to…

Jason & Joanne, 12 Nov 2010, Swissotel Stamford

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: LuckyThis was a fun wedding…for the musicians – cos we got Shawn in with his drum kit, and that made a lot of difference! Groovy songs like 1,2,3,4, and the pop-rock ballad Ever Ever After were given more dynamics because of the drum set!  Personally I’m surprised Joanne chose the song ‘Remember me this way’, which was dedicated to her sisters. Taken off the soundtrack of ‘Casper’, this song is 15-year-old this year! 😀  Another favourite for the…

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…

Felene and Lionel, 17 Sep 2010, Swissotel The Stamford (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 月圆花好 (Full Moon Blooming Flowers) This wedding has the most fusion songlist I’d ever sung! It’s not a bad thing at all, because I’m quite sure nobody felt left out by the live band! To prove my point, we started off with the French song titled “Le festin” which is taken off the movie soundtrack ‘Ratatouille‘,, and it could not be a more suitable song for the 1st dish because it means “the feast”! Here’s the translation of the lyrics:…

Bernard and Christine, 2 May 2010, Fairmont Swissotel (Wedding Live Band)

Imelda’s thoughts: Finally I have never met a family that has 5 daughters till Christine and Bernard’s wedding. Christine has 4 sisters, that makes the 5 of them in total, each sister as beautiful as the next. I’m not sure if Bernard has as many brothers to match, but one thing’s for sure – he’s grabbed the one he’s got his eye on. It hadn’t been a short whirlwind romance for this enduring couple. They knew each other after secondary school…

Shijun and Nelly, 16 Jan 2010, Stamford Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Twelfth Of Never Nelly and Ruoying (Shijun’s sister) were roommates in University. When Shijun, who was studying in the same University, wanted to get to know Nelly better, naturally he sought the help of Ruoying. According to Shijun, the process wasn’t so smooth. Rouying advised him against it, saying, “Don’t go after Nelly!” (Do note that when Shijun was telling me the story, he had a mischievous glint in his eye.) Ruoying, bless her, did help to…

Jinrong and Shiying, 26 Dec 09, Canning Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford (Wedding Live Band)

Judy’s Thoughts: 小夫妻 (Small Couple)  It was a fun gig with Jerome. The couple decided to put Jerome and me right up there on stage with bright spotlights shining on us. It was as though we were holding our own mini concert. Shiying & Jinrong I definitely enjoyed myself up on stage as I could see all the guests, and could interact with them much better in that way.The guests really enjoyed the music and they reacted positively to our interaction and was often…

Chun Wing and Leya, 28 Nov 09, Canning Ballroom, Fairmont (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: 甜蜜蜜 (Honey Sweet) Chun Wing and Leya’s wedding was a massive ball for everyone concerned- and by massive we mean MASSIVE, and by ball, we do mean it was just like a royal ball. It was a huge do in the sprawling spaces of the Swissotel Canning Ballroom, adorned with flowers and, of course, gorgeous guests. It was expertly emceed by a DJ from 933 fm, and us the band were given a special dedicated stage to do…

Boon Siang and Juliana, 16 Oct 09, Stamford Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Angels Brought Me Here It is so rare for Boon Siang and Juliana to have a tiff that they could count on one hand the number of times that happened. In fact, Boon Siang told his wedding guests the longest time they stayed mad at each other was about half a day at most. Juliana also found it surprising that wedding preparations went so smoothly. They agreed on almost every decision, and when they didn’t, one party…

Rose and Kevin, 4 Oct 09, Fairmont (Wedding Live Band)

Judy’s thoughts: 玫瑰玫瑰我爱你 (Rose Rose I Love You) The first thing I noticed about this wedding was that it was huge! There were 129 tables in total — definitely the biggest wedding crowd I’ve ever performed for. Kevin was very conscientious and considerate. He made sure Rose had enough time to rest and prepare, while he rehearsed the march-in alone with us. He also made sure we were well-taken care. I enjoyed the set list very much; it was a…

Johnny and Jerlynn, 20 Jun 09, Collyer Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: I Finally Found Someone “Hi Hsin Yeow, Jerlynn and I lived in the same neighbourhood and attended the same primary school. We didn’t catch each other’s eye even though we bumped into each other a couple of times while growing up. I went to Australia to pursue a degree, and when I returned home, I met her by chance at Starbucks on Christmas Day 2006. I was waiting for a friend, and when I saw her through…

Pearlyn and Julian, 10 May 09, Canning Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Ming’s thoughts: 你是我心内的一首歌 (You’re A Song In My Heart) 通常婚禮來説,哪一個數字會是最突出的呢? 應該是“2”吧。 結婚是2個人的事 也是2家人的事。 戒指是2枚。 象徵性的鴛鴦也是2只。 什麽都是雙雙對對的。 想不到這一次婚禮, 數字2應用在我身上也那麽得貼切。 地點是第2次在那兒表演。 ZQ是第2次一起合作。 Joel也是第2此一企合作。 真巧。 很高興又有機會跟ZQ和Joel 合作 他們兩個都很健談可愛。 虽是工作,也玩得很开心。 一對新人長得實在年輕 光看樣子,仿佛剛踏出校園似的。 但新郎致詞時說他們竟愛情長跑了12年之久! 不可思議! 那他們到底是幾嵗開始拍拖的呢? 始終不太好意思問。 就讓它成爲一個美麗的問號吧。 As Hui Ming mentioned above, don’t Julian and Pearlyn look incredibly youthful?Band: Hui Ming, Zheng Quan, Joel L-R: Zheng Quan, Hui Ming, Patsy, Pearlyn, Julian, JoelRepertoire: Somewhere Over The Rainbow/ What A Wonderful World, Beautiful Sunday, Can You Feel The Love Tonight, I Do (Cherish You),…

(Wedding) Tiong Keat and Han Han, 7 Dec 08, Stamford Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Someone To Love Who wears the pants in this relationship? Seeing that both of them work in the Army, I’m sure Tiong Keat and Han Han can be assertive when they need to. The entertaining photo-montage we saw at the start of the banquet had this unique analogy: Tiong Keat prefers the Times Roman (font) while Han Han think Arial is better. Anyone who can shed some light into what this means in terms of their personalities,…

(Wedding) Angela and Jordan, 5 Dec 08, Collyer Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford

The wedding of Jordan and Angela was held at Swissotel The Stamford, in the Collyer Ballroom which was set elegantly with pastel drapes and hanging chandeliers adorned with roses. From a very adorable cartoon video montage, we learnt that Jordan and Angela met at the chic nightspot “ChinaBlack”. Jordan was interested in Angela but was aware she had many suitors. When he gathered the courage to ask Angela for a date, he was rejected. Throughout the video montage, there were…

(Wedding) Chi Wern and Chin Ling, 29 Nov 08, Stamford Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: So Close For a blow-by-blow account of what an amazing wedding Chi Wern and Chin Ling had. Here’s a short summary… On 5 Jan this year, Chin Ling wrote a blog entry, “I was also very sure that if Bev were to sing for my wedding, it would be such a beautiful thing. When I read her thoughts on their blog, I feel like I can connect with her… Chi Wern and I did our sums over…

(Wedding) Ginie and Kin, 19 Sep 08, Padang Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford

Hui Bing’s thoughts: In Love With You When I arrived at the Padang Ballroom that evening, the groom, Kin, was a bunch of nerves. He said he has been rather relaxed, until the moment he saw the ballroom which has been beautifully decorated for their wedding dinner to come. Kin had not planned a thank-you speech but he wanted to give one, so we guided him on the people that he could thank – his friends, colleagues, parents, and of…

(Wedding) Xavier and Kelly, 6 Sep 08, Canning Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford

Jo’s thoughts: Let There Be Love On 6th September 2008, Xavier and Kelly were wed, and A Little Dream was fortunate enough to be part of the Franco-Singaporean festivities. That’s right, Xavier the dapper Frenchman swept Kelly the Singaporean sweetheart off her beautiful feet, and consequently has made a promise to be her support in our sunny island for the rest of their lives. To witness this promise were a multitude of guests from both continents including one table from…
