Hui Bing’s thoughts: I Love The Way You Love Me
Derek emailed us a week before to ask if the band could accompany him on the song that he will be singing for Mei Ting. Of course, we said yes. Before the solemisation ceremony began, we sneaked up to the make-up room upstairs for a quick rehearsal. We literally locked ourselves in, in case Mei Ting or anyone else happened to barge into the room.
Derek was clearly nervous before his cue to come on-stage. His voice started out tentatively, but slowly grew in confidence as his guests cheered him on. I thought Derek’s voice had a nice tenor quality to it. As I led Mei Ting to his side while he was singing the song, the happiness that shone on Mei Ting’s face made it all worthwhile.
Usually, a solemnisation ceremony is quite, uh, solemn. But for Derek and Mei Ting’s, it was punctuated with cheers and warm laughter as the Justice of Peace, Prof Low, guided the couple through the proceedings. The most touching moment came when Derek read out his wedding vows to Mei Ting and I could see her wiping away tears of joy.
We were thrilled when Mei Ting and Derek said they will be engaging us to perform at their customary wedding. Dear Mei Ting and Derek, it has been great performing at your solemnisation and look forward to seeing you again next year.
