Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Summer Rain
Emotions ran high at Shyann and Lennon’s wedding. From shedding tears of happiness to dancing with all out abandon, the couple traversed the emotional extremes in one night.
The dinner started out rather sedate, as the guests quietly enjoyed the soothing music. It was an intimate wedding; Shyann and Lennon only invited a close group of about 100 family members and friends. And what I love about cosy wedding is this: the couple had time to walk to every table and talk to their guests!
But when it was time for Shyann to give a speech, tears started streaming down her face. It was a touching moment as she paid tribute to her group of close girl friends; one, in particular, shed tears as well.
When it came to Lennon, he took time to give thanks to every table in the audience. He thanked his buddies for helping him out that morning by supporting him through the gate-crashing antics. He also unwittingly revealed the secret behind his trim figure when he thanked his friends who keep him “slim by playing badminton every Tuesday.”
I knew Shyann and Lennon’s wedding night was going to be special because she had a clear vision of what she wanted for the music. The brief was “RnB then mambo”, a simple yet challenging set of instructions.
Luckily, I found able musicians to back me up. Adeline took charge of the piano, while Ivan thrilled with his saxophone solos. Shawn, the resourceful drummer, ended the night with a literal bang as he rocked the house with his powerful drumming.
I was thrilled to know Derrick was helming the lens that night.
Thanks for the photos, Derrick!
Congratulations, Shyann and Lennon! It was a joy performing for you, and I hope to see you again soon!

Songs To Recommend:
Dying Inside To Hold You – 1993? Has it been that long? I had a laugh when I saw the video again.
Summer Rain – I’m one of those who probably can sing to every one of Belinda Carlisle’s hits. Gosh!
Can’t Fight The Moonlight – A really fun song!
