Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Only You
James’ best man Kenny delivered a hilarious speech which gave some of James’ little secrets away (things I wouldn’t want to blog about here haha), but among all that, one line which gave me a big laugh was, “James, don’t be afraid Kim will leave you; she’s spent way too much time training you!”
Of course I’m not sure about the training part, but when it was time for James to speak that evening, I was certainly impressed by his show of love and gratitude for Kimberly,
“She’s now my responsibility and I’ll take care of her. Thank you for saying “Yes” for giving me your phone number when we first met. Thank you for agreeing to have our first dinner with me at Raffles City. Thank you for marrying me….. Today I become a man, a husband, today my life begins….. I’ll be ready for anything, for everything. Today our lives begin, and I for one can’t wait.”
With Linhui on her electric violin, Linus on the baby grand piano and myself on vocals, we performed some of the couple’s favourite songs to the eclectic mix of guests from all over the world; I was especially happy to receive a complimentary email from one of the wedding-guests who came as far as New Caledonia after the wedding!
One song which I tried performing for the first time was this great classic “Only You”. It is commonly sung by male singers, but I thought I’d like to give it a try. And I was glad I did cos the applause for this song was the loudest i.e. old classics still resonate the best among wedding guests:
The couple’s aunt and uncle joined us for a short impromptu performance!Thanks, Yu-Shan (ambi photography), for sharing your photos with us.
Thank you Kim and James! It was a pleasure for us, and we wish you everlasting bliss. Congratulations once again! 🙂
