We were very happy to be part of Darrell and Meng Hooi’ s wedding happening at W Singapore, Sentosa. This new venue is one of the dream wedding venue for many couples in recent years. With its exclusive yacht sail by entrance for the couple, the guests are easily impressed, not to mention their luxurious yet modern interior deco of the hotel.
The bride, Meng Hooi, has been liaising with us since the mid of this year. We have work on the details together from the march in to the song list. One of the highlights of the wedding was a surprise dance performance for the guests, from the couple’s friends. The song chosen was Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran. As Meng Hooi has not picked her second march in song, she was wondering if she could integrate this song for her march in before the dance item without interrupting the flow of the song.
Our team ensure her that the flexibility of a live band is that as we are playing live, we can sing and play the song to match the dancing. This minimises rehearsing with the dancers and the band so the dancers could practise dancing at their free time with the music they had on hand. The only rehearsal we had was during soundcheck and it was ample.
This march in was also possible as we have experienced musicians playing for us. From the planning to the execution of the song, it was a team effort – Meryl, Bryan and Peter. After understanding the needs from Meng Hooi, feedbacks from the musicians are important as they have a wealth of experience to foresee what will work and what will not. So a note to future couples planning for their wedding, share your ideas with us and we will like to help you make it happen!
We will like to thank Meng Hooi for being such a darling to work with! We hope that the wedding was perfect for them and we will like to wish them a blissful marriage!
Testimonial from the couple :
Awesome performance by the musicians. My husband and I both loved the band’s rendition of the 2nd march in song. The transition from the march in to the live dance performance was flawless. We loved it!
