Emily and Lance, 28 Jul 09, Tudor Ballroom, Goodwood Park Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: That’s all

This is officially the wedding with the most applause….even before the band started performing. When the emcees took the stage, there was applause. When the couple’s names were mentioned, there was applause. The applause really counted as enthusiastic, and thoroughly reflected the happy mood of the guests. I wonder where the magic in all that came from!?

The magic could lie in the fact that Emily and Lance are such affable people! Emily counts as one of the most prepared and ready bride I have seen – she was already all dolled and dressed-up at 630pm when the band was doing the setup. She wasted no time to interact and receive the stream of guests slowly trickling in!

The first dish song was performed by the band, and it was “I Wish You Love” in French, as specially indicated by Emily. I had the most wonderful time performing with Ji Xiang on guitar and Boon Chye on saxophone, especially on the song “That’s All”. Truth be told, it has been a long time since I sang a song and gave myself goosebumps. The song is that well-written, that’s why:


I can only give you love that lasts forever.
And a promise to be near each time you call.
And the only heart I own
For you and you alone
That’s all,
That’s all…
I can only give you country walks in springtime
And a hand to hold when leaves begin to fall;
And a love whose burning light
Will warm the winter’s night
That’s all,
That’s all.

There are those I am sure who have told you,
They would give you the world for a toy.
All I have are these arms to enfold you,
And a love time can never destroy.

If you’re wondering what I’m asking in return, dear,
You’ll be glad to know that my demands are small.
Say it’s me that you’ll adore,
For now and evermore
That’s all,
That’s all.

Lance’s speech started with “Finally, after being so many years of brother, it’s MY turn to be the groom”. Lance, I’m sure the wait is worth it with such a pretty and intelligent bride! My heartiest congratulations and all the best!
