Chun Wing and Leya, 28 Nov 09, Canning Ballroom, Fairmont (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: 甜蜜蜜 (Honey Sweet)

Chun Wing and Leya’s wedding was a massive ball for everyone concerned- and by massive we mean MASSIVE, and by ball, we do mean it was just like a royal ball.

It was a huge do in the sprawling spaces of the Swissotel Canning Ballroom, adorned with flowers and, of course, gorgeous guests. It was expertly emceed by a DJ from 933 fm, and us the band were given a special dedicated stage to do our thing.

And of course, the stars of the night themselves, Wing Chun and Leya…they were preceded by a happy entourage of at least ten bridesmaids and best men, all stunning in designer dresses and suits, and the couple themselves, He looking slick and savvy in his three piece and She, svelte and stellar in a pearlescent gown with a creamy royal train, looked like they stepped out of a top end Bridal Magazine. With cameras focused on the glowing pair and the emcee commenting that she felt she was at the union of Chris and Fann, it’s not stretching it to say that these guys are one of those unbelievably beautiful Singapore couples.

And obviously they are as loved as they are lovely..their friends were vociferous in their cheering and shouting, especially at silly videos of Leya doing the para para, and Chun Wing leading a mafia crew of suave best men to pick up his bride in the morning, complete with a metal suitcase printed with banknotes to hold the angpow that would be given to the bridesmaids.

Here it is worth noting that the bridesmaids demanded much more than angpow from the groom’s crew – the guys had to use their combined leg hair and UHU glue to create a modern art heart shaped pattern before Wing could claim his bride.

Including Leya’s colleagues coming up to sing an original love song to wish the couple well, the wedding was full of sweet, sunny, funny moments, and we were hnoured to be part of this huge do
