Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 一只小雨伞 (Tiny Umbrella)
This is a fun, relaxed wedding where everyone enjoyed themselves. Check out this Molten Brown wedding favour:
One of the best things I love about weddings, is to learn about how a couple met and fall in love. Charles and Keisha invited their match-maker (Charles’ work colleague) to share just that with everyone. She recounted how she was seated next to Charles one day and was surprised to learn that Charles was still a ‘diamond bachelor’. She offered to match-make Charles with girls, and when she asked him for his prerequisites, everyone was bemused by his answer – “must be single”. Shortly after, Charles and Keisha met at a party organised by the matchmaker, and the rest was history once Charles laid his eyes on Keisha!
Things just got more interesting as the wedding lunch proceeded. Keisha decided to spring a surprise on Charles by getting me to sing one part of the march-in song, before she continued the other part. The song is the classic hokkien number 一只小雨伞 (Tiny Umbrella)
Charles rose from his seat to receive his lovely bride in Cheongsam and Keisha even attempted to translate the lyrics to Mandarin to help Charles understand!
Another song which I heard all the time, and finally was my time to sing is this classic Hokkien song – 随缘 (As Fate Decrees)!
