Bevlyn’s thoughts: Love You More Than I Can Say
When Ching Ling contacted us to sing for her wedding, it was exactly one week before the big day. That really stressed us out because Decembers are usually peak period for musicians, and we were simply relieved that we could book the musicians (especially a saxophonist) for her!
Fortunately, the banquet was at Four Seasons Hotel, whose friendly and efficient staff we are very well-acquainted with. One interesting highlight of the evening was the video montage which showed the couple’s church wedding at Bali. It was clearly a great idea to have the solemnisation abroad with one’s close family members and friends flying over to have a small holiday as well.
I would say that the repertoire chosen by Ching Ling was well-catered to her guests, no matter how different their tastes were. There were English classics, jazz, Mandarin pop and oldies. At least no guest would feel left out!
Though many couples may feel apprehensive to have Mandarin oldies played/sung at their weddings, you might be surprised to know that I always receive the loudest applause for those songs. And for this wedding, it was 爱你在心口难开(Love You More Than I Can Say)!

Compliments from Ching Ling:
Thank you so much for performing at my wedding despite the short notice.
I could wax lyrical on how much my guests loved your performance but I
think the most telling sign is that Val and Ying Ming signed you guys on almost right after hearing you at Four Seasons!
With actions like that, words are redundant to describe what a great job you did!
