Tanya’s Thoughts: Always
I love being part of weddings because it’s such a joyous and momentous occasion for newly-weds and it’s so thrilling to be able to play a small part in their celebrations!
Ray and Michelle have been together for the past 10 years and eventually tied the knot on 2nd Aug 2009. The montages played on which showed clips of the bride and groom as babies moving on to adults, followed by an animation cartoon that was strung together based on their love story. As Michelle had relatives in China, they held a banquet over there and screened a 20-minute video of the wedding banquet held in China. I can imagine how hectic it must have been for the newly-weds, but from how their faces effused joy that night, not even the slightest hint of exhaustion was apparent.
The ambience was fantastic, given the amount of effort and detail that went into the decor, not to mention that we had an amazing sound system. What struck us first was the stage set-up which was pretty big but later on we realised the space was put to good use for the toasting ceremony, where the stage was filled with supporters squeezed in all eager to contribute to the cheering and high spirits. The absolute stunner for the night had to be Michelle the bride, for she had several outfit changes and the gowns were very intricately designed.
The songs that we performed that night were specially put together by the couple and judging from the faces in the crowd, the choice of songs certainly went down very well with them. What was most gratifying was the appreciation that some guests showed, be it through applause, nodding their heads in approval or even just a smile. The classic Teresa Teng and Jacky Cheung songs were the most well-received that night… I guess people don’t label these songs evergreens for nothing!
Despite having attended and sung at so many wedding events, each one is indeed an experience which is so unique, fun and memorable! This being my maiden gig with A Little Dream, it was a great experience working with the talented bunch and I’m certainly looking forward to more to come!
