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 brush in his mouth to the excruciating leg hair waxing!! *Ouch*) But what caught our attention was the moment he finally saw her after all the "torture", it was like all the tasks didn’t matter at all, and there was only her in his eyes.
The most memorable moment to us was when, after the speech, Andy told us that after hearing the song "We Belong Together" on the radio, it is Shirley’s dream to have the song sung in her wedding. So the band played and Andy started singing earnestly. Then the teary-eyed Shirley joined in and they sang together, with him all the while holding her tight in his arms. They belong together indeed, no doubt about it! We praised Shirley for her singing prowess, and she gracefully thanked us for playing the song and making her dream come true.
The audience that night was fun! A little girl came up to me and handed me a small piece of paper with the song title "Can’t Help Falling In Love" written in colour pencil, she was so cute that we just had to do her song request! We also noticed different tables were cheering for different songs, but after the pretty diverse repertoire, everyone seemed in a very good mood alright! I especially enjoyed singing "All I Ask of You" from Phantom of the Opera, done in Bossanova style – courtesy of a very creative group of musicians. We had a lot of applause after the song "When You Say Nothing At All" and "Love, Me" as well, it’s a romantic crowd at the wedding that night.
All in all, it was really a great experience to be part of the celebration of these two lovely individuals. Congratulations Andy and Shirley!
