Cheryl’s thoughts: Everlasting Love
For a love that stretches beyond land and sea, look no further than Wee Liang and Cecilia’s. This bubbly couple’s wedding adventure began with a church ceremony in Perth 4 months ago, then continued with a celebration in Jakarta in July. Tonight was their third wedding celebration – “Finally!”, quipped Cecilia – with the special touch of having a live band for this final celebration. We shared in couple’s adventures through videos and photographs, but it was the video messages that Wee Liang and Cecilia recorded for each other that drew the oohs and ahhs from the guests, revealing the sweet and sincere side of their personalities.
Shortly before the dinner began, one of Wee Liang’s group of groomsmen, with the support of his mates, approached us and said he wanted to sing a song specially for the happy couple. After looking through some songs, he gamely took on David Tao’s 爱很简单 (Love Is Very Simple), high notes and all! Truly impressive, and so inspiring that shortly after his performance, one of Cecilia’s friends requested us to accompany him on an impromptu rendition of Wonderful Tonight. Cheers to these two very brave friends of Wee Liang and Cecilia!
As the evening drew to a close, I remarked to Hsin Yeow and Christina that both Wee Liang and Cecilia are very photogenic and really are the quintessential “match made in heaven” wedding couple. Indeed, after having to prepare three different celebrations in three different countries, you might expect them to show signs of fatigue, but on the contrary, both Wee Liang and Cecilia were glowing with joy and love for each other. For me, it was this joyful energy emanating from our lovely couple that made this experience stand out.
Wee Liang and Cecilia, thank you for making us a part of your wonderful wedding adventure. Here’s wishing you a blissful marriage that’s as exciting and colourful as your wedding!
Thanks to Yu Hsin of Tinydot, the wedding is lovingly documented.
