Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 玫瑰玫瑰我愛你 (Rose, Rose, I Love You)
Constance (aka Connie) and Max’s wedding scores for the most innovative march-in music ever!
I thought I’d heard them all, but then the emcee went onstage to demonstrate how to make bird calls using the wedding favours (a special whistle). Five minutes later, the entire ballroom rang with resounding shrill tweets that heralded the second entrance of Connie and Max. It was nothing like I’d ever seen before, and I loved it!
You can see the guests blowing the whistles!
Perhaps it was the couple’s in-joke to mark how they came to know each other. Their mutual friends had volunteered at the Singapore Zoological Gardens, and they both met at a group date. The funny thing was, both had expressed interest in finding out more about each other to a mutual friend, but that friend promptly went overseas, and did not link them up.
Well, it didn’t matter in the end because love found a way.
The wedding celebration was such joyous fun that it’s hard to list all the memorable things down. There were many laugh-out-loud moments, like when Connie innocently remarked, “I found Max at the Zoo!”
The couple’s friends were also a great bunch. They got together and presented a hilarious skit (complete with styrofoam cutouts, powerpoint slides and song-and-dance) to celebrate the couple’s union.
At the end of the entertaining skit, they surprised Max by asking him to croon a song for Constance. In the end, Max stole the show by belting “Wonderful Tonight” with consummate ease. Max brought the house down!
Congratulations, Connie and Max! It was a pleasure and a privilege to be part of your wedding. Thank you!

Dear Hsin Yeow, Bevlyn and A little Dream,
Thank you for doing such a great job at our wedding!
Max and I received many many many wonderful compliments on your performance. Your music gave an extra special touch to the whole evening. A live band is just different!
Thanks for playing some of the dedications, and your earlier advice on songs. Our guests had a great time! We now wish there is a recording so that we can enjoy your tunes all over again!
Great job! But to be brutally honest, I must say that in my eyes, Max’s impromptu performance totally outshone all of you! It was such a wonderful surprise! My man can sing!
Thanks for everything!
Constance & Max
