Jo’s thoughts: Que Sera Sera
It was simultaneous coziness and class at Club Chinois, Orchard Parade Hotel, at Audrey and Vernon’s wedding reception on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
In this tucked away alcove of old-world Oriental charm amidst the busy Orchard Road district, the couple gathered friends and family to witness their wedding solemnisation as they prayed for bliss and exchanged vows of forever on a brand new and wonderful journey.
All blushes and beauty and love and laughter, resplendent in a sharp suit for Vernon and a gorgeous gown for Audrey which later was changed into a sleek cheongsam, the couple treated their beloved friends and family to an intimate but inspired gathering complete with delicately strewn confetti which the young ones took great delight playing in, a beautiful flower girl, and a shy and sweet young ring bearer who later dedicated his giggling congratulations to the newlyweds, amidst Chinese fine dining.
They also entertained their guests with music and love songs to enhance the mood of enchanted love, with Feri on the guitar and myself on vocals.
A touching moment was when Audrey surprised her new husband with a song dedication – Que Sera Sera …a melody they always used to hum along to together in the road of courtship leading up to the blessed day, and an expression of faith in the beauty of the road ahead. We even managed to get an unprepared but nonetheless game Vernon and Audrey to sing the song themselves despite not actually having sung it with lyrics before, to the applause of the wedding guests.
It was a lovely wedding and thank you Audrey and Vernon for letting us be part of it! May the best blessings always accompany this lovely couple.
