Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Time After Time

A week later, I’m back in this beautiful white ballroom for Simon and Dening’s wedding. I knew that the couple would be having their solemnization at the rooftop, and the banquet manager whom I know well cajoled me to leave my sound check for a while to go up and see for myself the beautiful scenery. True enough, the view was breath-taking, what an excellent place to exchange your vows!

Simon hails from UK, and I was pleasantly surprised by how friendly his family guests were – they said ‘Hello’ to Ian and I when they saw us at the lift!

The wedding was really a very informal and casual affair. While I was waiting for the wedding to commence, a gorgeous lady in cheongsam popped over to me and said,”Hi, I’m Dening!”. We quickly confirmed again that there would be no march-in of any sort, and dinner commenced shortly after a welcome speech by Simon.

Ian and I performed a good mix of jazz, pop repertoire, and I was pleasantly surprised that Dening requested for my original song ‘Play With Me’

After a heart-warming speech by Dening’s twin sister (we thought we were seeing double), Dening’s brother shared with the guests a interesting photo montage he put up – here’s a picture of Dening and her twin sister!

A very western setup – long tables!

Here’s wishing Simon and Dening a wonderful married life ahead, filled with love, joy and blessings. May you always remember time after time how wonderful your wedding was. Congratulations!

Compliments from Dening:

Hello Bevlyn!

Thank you so much for writing such sweet words about our wedding. Simon and I really wished we could kick back and relax, eating, and enjoying your music instead of running around chatting with our guests.. I’m so going to persuade my soon-to-be-getting-married friends to engage your band so I can enjoy the music, heh.

Thank you once again.
Regards,
Dening
