We just had our wedding rehearsal at Wesley yesterday, and it was quite a ball. We were blessed to have a good turnout for the event, and every person who had a role to play could make it.
It was just delightful to see how contrasting did each of the three children take their roles. Isaac, our page boy, Issac, was clearly having the most fun. Instead of holding his bible with two hands and walking solemnly, he skipped and jaunted down the aisle waving the book with outstretch hands.
Gwen, the two boys’ cousin, got her part right on the first try. She’d be carrying a basket and dropping little petals along the way, and Ling said she looked absolutely lovely doing so. As for Danyel, as the ring bearer he looked dead-serious, especially after when Reverend Huang told him he had do his part properly to “Uphold the good name of Anglo-Chinese School.”:)
The vows were hard to get right though: they’re a mouthful, and comprising of many short phrases. I couldn’t get mind absolutely right on the first rehearsal run as Ling was making me laugh too much. Ling fared much better though, and got hers mostly right on both tries. The both of us were really blessed too on how ‘right’ our chosen processional, special item by the Hai Sing alumni choir, recessional music was for the event. Hearing Lok Sze and Sean perform the opening prelude and seeing Ling walk down the aisle certainly moved me nearly to tears.
So, all in all, it seems most things are coming along quite nicely, though as Reverend Huang remarked, anything goes on the actual day. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for sure.:)
