wedding: speeches & such

onward marching soldier!! :)

after our formal introduction into the reception, we were settled in and went on to enjoy a lovely three course dinner. one thing we were certain we didn't scrimp on was food. i reckon thats really one of the most important things in a wedding and universally appreciated. so we paid extra attention to make sure the quality and variety was up to scratch. we later received raving reviews for the food but i was less keen on the dessert. maybe because by the time i got to mine, my icecream was all gooey.. which is, im my world, a bad thing. a very bad thing.. :(

our bridal table. we had the most fun surrounded by our best man & maid of honour.

frankly, it would have been perfect if we could fit the entire bridal party but we really wanted to seat everyone with their partners so we pared back and kept it simple. turned out great cos we had a ball at our bridal table chatting up a storm...

its kinda different when you're seated with the family, a-la-singaporean style. i love our extended family and grampies but i guess its just more formal and stiff, as we learnt two weeks later...

we started with family speeches. dad started the ball rolling with an great speech spilling beans on his darling child, daniel. :)

then my awesome brother, teng, gave his excellent speech.. 
song was there for moral support.

i love it how when the both of them panic, they revert back to their default accents. hahaha.. and of course, my dear brother had to end his speech with "jie, this angmoh... CAN!!" sending the singaporean half of the crowd laughing their heads off. :)

had us laughing and crying at the same time. it was confusing..

our special father-daughter dance to "daddy's little girl"..

hi pa & ma!! mum also changed into her dancing dress! she is hilarious. she had more change of clothes than i did. *sigh*

then our best man, david, spoke beautifully...

and our maid of honour, deaf delivered the classic best-friend speech
and everyone spoke with the assistance of their iphone. hilarious!

our friends took over the dance floor with a sizzling hot salsa number and got the party started.
more later!! headed out for brunch at il lido! :) *hmmm*
