Tanya’s Thoughts: Lady In Red

Opening the night of celebrations was literally a ‘small’ surprise planned by Lawrence and Jasmine, where they had little flower girls and page boys do a march-in ahead of them.

It was also the largest contingent of brothers that we’ve ever seen – all 13 of them, lending their support to the groom in his early morning efforts to pick up the bride. Impressive! And they were in top form again at night, as demonstrated in the deafening strains of ‘yam seng’ that resonated in the hall.

I was especially happy for the opportunity to be able to sing Teresa Teng’s 你怎么说, which was a last minute addition to the songlist that night. It was a poignant moment as this song was the favourite song of Lawrence’s late mother which he requested for the band to play.

Jasmine’s friends wrote a particularly sweet dedication message to the newly-weds with a request to sing a Happy Birthday song to her. It was then that we found out it was Jasmine’s birthday the same night! Always awesome to have a double celebration! And we all clapped and sang along to the strains of Happy Birthday.

We had a wonderful time and it wouldn’t have been possible without the couple making arrangements to ensure that everything was alright – we were very well taken care of! And we were especially touched by the mention of ALD in Lawrence’s speech. In fact, we are grateful and honoured to be able to join in the revelry and we’d like to thank Lawrence and Jasmine for making us a part of the biggest day of their lives!
