Hui Bing’s thoughts: The Nearness Of You
It was great performing for Melvin and Amelia’s wedding as they are such an easy-going and friendly couple, and they placed absolute trust in us to deliver a great performance. So much so, that Melvin gave us free rein with the songlist after he heard our performance at another wedding. James, Benson and I had a great time singing the mix of jazz, easy listening and Mandopop numbers that I have selected for them.
One positive comment about the venue – I loved its long and wide entrance. Suitable for couples with a big number of guests as it allows guests to have a nearer view of the march-ins. Its fabulous lighting also gave the ballroom a dreamy, ethereal yet romantic feel.
Indeed, Melvin looked very much like a dashing prince in his white suit while I thought Amelia resembled a Korean TV star in her beautiful embroidered wedding gown. To enhance the magical moment, Melvin decided to serenade his bride by singing ‘A Whole New World’, to thunderous applause from his guests. It was a great way to end his thank-you speech.
Dear Melvin and Amelia, it has been a pleasure being part of your special day. Wishing you everlasting bliss and happiness ahead.
