Ariel’s Thoughts: When You Tell Me That You Love Me
This pair of lovebirds has no qualms about taking the road less traveled and I think they deserve a thumbs up for their efforts to make their wedding dinner an intimate affair. It was clear that majority of the guests were either close relatives/friends/colleagues of the couple and as soon as dinner started, the guests were all over the place, congratulating the couple or bantering with one another. Hann Feng’s loving sister also gave a heartwarming speech, encouraging the couple to stay likeminded in order to overcome all of life’s obstacles. I was most tickled when his sister complimented Bai Jie’s bubbly personality, as compared with the more reserved Hann Feng.
The guests were treated to Western cuisine, with the most enthralling spread of delicious desserts and cakes. I loved their choice of the cosy and quaint Halia Restaurant, which is nestled in the heart of Singapore Botanic Gardens and far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Do check out this charming couple on their official wedding site (http://www.chongbaiwedding.com/) which features their lovely photos and the song repertoire for the dinner.
Whether Mandarin or English pop, Jerome (male vocals) always delivered the songs with class and emotion. Like a hopeless fan, I swayed to the rhythm of Jerome’s rendition of月亮代表我的心, with Clarence plucking those beautiful chords on the guitar. It was also my honour to sing a few duets with Jerome including When You Tell Me That You Love Me which conveys my conviction about love:
In a world without you, I would always hunger
All I need is your love to make me stronger
Pre-dinner songs: Sing Along, 今天你要嫁给我 (You’re Marrying Me Today)
Band: Jerome, Ariel, Clarence
