Serene’s thoughts: Start Of Something New

The wedding for Keat and Jo-ann was held at the HortPark, a lovely haven located off Alexandra Road.

In place of the usual ballroom settings of spotlights and rich colours, guests were pleasantly greeted with an infinity pool at the entrance of the park, overlooking a vast lawn decorated in the theme of white and purple, all ready to witness the matrimony of two lovely individuals. I can’t possibly describe how beautiful it is to watch two people exchange vows under a clear blue sky, surrounded by flora and fauna. It was a breathtaking sight.

When night came, two huge balloons inscribed with the names Keat and Jo-Anne cast warm lighting around the area. The wedding banquet then commenced in the function room adjoining the lawn. With floor to ceiling glass walls, the warmly illuminated room looked lovely from afar. Guests were treated to an exquisite buffet spread serving extremely delectable dishes.

Meanwhile, Keat and Jo-ann’s reliable helpers transformed the lawn into a complete hang-out area, with carpets, cushions, balloons and tea lights where guests could lay around the lawn enjoying their dinner under the stars while the band performed.

There were also other highlights during the evening. The extremely thoughtful couple brought in foot masseuses and guests could have their tired feet massaged while soaking in the calm and serenity of the surroundings.


Elsewhere in the lawn, there was a life-size standee of the wedding couple, so that guests could have a photo moment with the couple anytime they wished. Outside the function room, there were custom made white boards mounted on the walls specially for guests to leave messages for the couple.

As the night came to a close, I thought to myself that this is one of the best weddings I’ve witnessed. Thanks to Keat and Jo-Ann who decided to make their wedding banquet a relaxing one for their guests and more importantly, at a venue so unique that perhaps not many of us nor their guests would even have learnt off.

Thank you Keat and Jo-Ann for engaging A Little Dream on your special day. It was a pleasure performing for your wedding and your guests and the band enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Our best wishes to the both of you!

Compliments from Jo-Ann:

Hi Hsin Yeow,

Please convey my thanks to the 4 lovely members of the band, I was busy mingling and getting intoxicated and did not get a chance to go say hi and let them know that they rock! 😉

The music was very really good and it added to the whole atmosphere of the evening, everyone loved it!
