Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Let’s Stay Together
Holding a wedding outdoors in Singapore’s tropical weather can be a nerve-wracking affair. A week before Adrian and Cheryl’s wedding, it rained like clockwork every afternoon. Adrian and Cheryl must have spent many sleepless nights wondering if the rain would wash away their dreams of an al fresco solemnisation ceremony.
Adrian and Cheryl must have prayed to the rain gods, because their prayers were answered, in spades. Not only was there no hint of rain that entire day, the sun beat down with a vengeance, as if it were trying to make up for lost time.
Cheryl and her dad
It seemed like yesterday when I met Adrian and Cheryl over tea at Plaza Singapura to discuss their wedding plans. I remember thinking that both of them are one of those lucky couples who can count themselves as lovers and best friends.
I was glad to have the company of Jonathan and Clarence as we sang the couple’s favourite songs. Knowing that we made Cheryl’s dream come true by singing her favourite song, Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World filled me with joy, especially since her vows to Adrian were so heartfelt my tear ducts went into overdrive. (Adrian was so choked up halfway through his vows that he resorted to giving Cheryl a kiss!)
One of the last songs I sang was Let’s Stay Together, a song that Cheryl said she would dance to, during our first encounter in July. When I surprised them both by singing this song, Adrian and Cheryl hugged each other and started dancing, to the delight of their guests!
Congratulations Adrian and Cheryl! May you continue to bring sunshine into each other’s lives!
