Sean and Swee Wei, 22 Nov 09, Ocean Ballroom, Pan Pacific Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: Love Me Tender

When the band was setting up and doing soundcheck, Sean came to me and asked for a favour. Something went wrong with the audio component for the photo montage, and he wondered if the band could perform a song while the montage rolled. I was like “Of course!” The song they had originally embedded was “I’m Yours”, which was in our repertoire. So we were more than happy to bring on the song!

And unknown to Swee Wei, Sean had also approached the band earlier to practise a song for his bride. After the speech, Sean told the guests, “And now, I’d like to sing a song for my bride…“. Swee Wei went “Huh?” in disbelief. Everybody cheered. I was feeling a bit nervous, because I was supposed to hand the lyrics to Sean at this part of the speech, but he decided at the eleventh hour that he didn’t need it. My fears were unfounded because once he looked into Swee Wei’s eyes and sing the song to her, the lyrics came tumbling out naturally, and Swee Wei was visibly moved to tears.
