Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Wonderful Tonight
“You mean as much to Ailin as she means to you, and I will take care of her as best as I possibly can.”
– Wayne, speaking to Ailin’s parents
I was looking forward to performing for Wayne and Ailin, for many reasons. One of which was very superficial. I was curious to take a look inside the club where the wedding would take place. It was so exclusive I could not find it in my street directory!
Thanks, Eng Hong, for sending me these beautiful photos!
When I finally arrived, I was slightly disappointed to note that the exterior of the club looked no different from many others I’d been to. Still, Hannah’s capable hands managed to transform the interior into something quite special. Tall, clear vases filled with purple orchids adorned each table top. There were sweet-smelling candy and pastry at the reception table to welcome the guests. The look was elegant, and the mood, intimate.
“I have to keep my speech short before I start crying!”
– Ailin, who just managed to keep her tear ducts in check.
Spontaneity. This word summed up my memories of the wedding. From Wayne’s impromptu performance of Wonderful Tonight to their first dance, we managed to deviate from the programme and inject fun and spontaneity into the proceedings.
I heaved a sigh of relief after having wrapped up for the evening, because Wayne had initially turned down our proposal of getting him up onstage to sing. He had several creative reasons, including, “I could never finish a song!”. But when Wayne finally took the microphone, he poured his heart into serenading Ailin, who sat entranced by Wayne’s performance.
I thought to myself, “Ah! My work is done!”
Congratulations Wayne and Ailin! It was a joy to perform for you and your guests! Thank you for engaging us!

Hi Hsin Yeow, Bevlyn, Joel & Matthew,
We’ve finally returned to our normal routine after the wedding and can properly say our thank yous to all those who made our wedding so special.
Although we admittedly did not get to listen to much of your performance, we’ve had rave compliments from so many people and enquiries about you that we know your performance was just fabulous.
A big thank you to all of you.. we’re already trying to think up other events for which we can engage you guys again!
Wayne and Ailin
