I’ve been to my fair share of weddings, craziest ever being five weddings in one month!
I’ve done everything from
renting lending the ride, driver, brother, best man, MC-ee, wedding singer, even playing in the wedding band, etc you name it. Sometimes doing some of these things together in the same wedding -.-” which made me wonder: who was more busy? Me or the bridegroom? Like there was even once when somehow I stupidly agreed to lend the ride, be the driver, brother, MC-ee, as well as play in the wedding band. Those were my young and foolish days!
But the most stressful I must have done was to MC-ee an event in English and then immediately translate for myself in Chinese when there were two full tables for the local chinese press amongst the dinner guests coz the bridegroom’s dad was the chief editor.
Yet another time I witnessed my friend’s celebrity wedding when it came to ‘you may now kiss the bride’ you couldn’t see a thing coz the couple was swarmed by 20 photographers and their flashing cameras.
From what I see, this looks set to be the biggest wedding of Singapore in 2007, and my first ever Sikh wedding!
They are sparing no expenses and hired the best wedding designer in asia (who flew Kylie Minogue for Lakshmi Mittal‘s daughter’s wedding.) The bride had to spend months back in India for her wedding preparations!
Talking about wedding, to me it’s like two co-sojourners agreeing to spend the rest of their journey on the highway of life together, hand in hand, come what may. But how many finish that commitment to stay the course together?
Good friend of mine said something that struck me:
“I won’t ever get married coz I’ve seen more than 7 divorces amongst my friends”
Two of my best friends are both divorced with kids as well.
Not to say that all marriages will go awry, but marriage requires hard work to succeed!
Anyways, here’s an accidental shot with a nice effect:
