Wah Yong’s thoughts: Let’s Fall In Love
The 20th Wedding Anniversary of Amy and William Leow, held at the Grand Ballroom of Inter-Continental Hotel, was indeed a special one.
The setting and arrangement of the ballroom was different from a conventional wedding- there were white trees adorned with lights, ribbons and hanging beads, as if white Christmas has arrived in sunny Singapore. Instantly, we were traipsing in a winter wonderland. The tables were covered in black to contrast with the trees, and arranged in long rows instead of round tables. (All thanks to Heaven’s Gift!)
Thanks, Eng Hong, for sending me these breathtaking photos!
The renewal of Wedding Vows and Exchange of Rings, followed by the lighting of Unity Candle Ceremony onstage as well as with their children at the bridal table made it an especially moving ceremony.
With an experienced and highly entertaining MC in Irene Ang (yes, that Rosie from Phua Chu Kang Pte Ltd), we were laughing so hard the whole night. She certainly raised the energy levels of the immaculately dressed crowd, giving the whole night an extra zest. “Sabotages” were the order of the night as she made Amy and William write down their special firsts on separate sheets of paper and later comparing them! Where they had their first dates, where they first kissed, where they “manufactured” their firstborn, Gabriel….
Special speeches by their three children Gabriel, Louisa and little Ephraim, followed by a dedication slideshow made it memorable night for all to remember.
