Hui Bing’s thoughts: Always
I think it’s great that more couples are using more creative ways to showcase their love journey to their guests during their wedding dinners – be it a simple powerpoint presentation, speeches or anecdotes shared by friends, or more seen at wedding dinners recently, the use of animation, as in the case of Irene and Vincent.
The animation took all of us back in time, as it replayed some of the significant scenes of Irene and Vincent’s love life – from the first time they met (Irene first thought of Vincent as an ‘ah beng’ with his gold chain and curly hair during their school orientation camp), how they fell in love (chit chatting via IRC and Vincent’s daily ‘Good Night’ smses) and finally, the proposal (a candle-lit ‘I love U’ at the beach).
Irene actually engaged the live band without Vincent knowing. She and Shi Hui, her wedding coordinator, took great efforts not to let the cat out of the bag even on the actual day, down to using CDs when rehearsing for their march-ins. As for Junxiong, Linus and me, we tried to blend in as much as possible as the couple’s helpers while Vincent was in the ballroom. I hope Vincent had a pleasant surprise when we sang the march-in songs live 🙂
It was great performing all the duets with Junxiong, my longtime singing partner, and Linus, who is versatile in all genres, from jazz to mandopop.
Dear Irene, thanks very for having us to perform during your special day and we wish you and Vincent a life filled with sweet surprises and love!
