Bevlyn’s thoughts: I Can’t Give You Anything (But My Love)
This has to be one of the coolest wedding I’ve been to.
Niki and Zhi Heng got to know each other from school, but Cupid didn’t have its armour strong enough back then to light the fire between the two. Upon graduation, they went separate ways – Niki flew and Zhi Heng sailed. It was only some years later when they caught up with each other again, that sparks flew. One thing they had in common is, they love to skate.
And what better way to demonstrate this common interest which binds them together, than to SKATE-IN!! Instead of the traditional wedding march-in, the couple had a ‘skate-in’, as in literally, they entered the ballroom on their rollerblades. I picked up skating only recently, and I was really wowed by how they managed to skate on the carpet! Niki told me later it was really tough especially toward the end, but honestly I wouldn’t have guess from the captivating smiles on their faces!
Niki and Zhi Heng skated round the ballroom, then a real 3-tier wedding cake was pushed into the ballroom. This cake was special because it was made by a good friend, but also because the friend managed to design a device to rotate the couple figurine on top of the cake!
After cutting the cake, Zhi Heng took a flag in one hand, and with his other hand holding Niki’s hand, both of them skated round the ballroom again to thunderous cheers and applause. What a lovely sight. And what other better “cruising” song to skate-in than this song “I Can’t Give You Anything (But My Love)“. Some of you may remember this song as the song from the “Gatsby” advertisement.
Niki had a couple of Japanese friends who flew in specially to attend the wedding, so she got me to sing a Japanese song “永遠にともに” (Together Forever).
We also sang a song “That’s What Friends Are For” to dedicate to the couples’ friends on their behalf. But the songs most well-received are the mandarin songs like “每天爱你多一些” (Loving You More Each Day), “追” (Chase), “小夫妻” (Little Couple) etc.
Definitely a smashing wedding! Congratulations once again from A Little Dream!!
