Kai put me on the spot. Twice! She asked me to speak at the reception dinner (I politely agreed), and the post wedding party (I drunkenly agreed).
So this will be perhaps, in a long history of firsts from us, the only time you see the wedding videographer make a speech during dinner! Hear! Hear!
The wedding, although set in a familiar place, was most uncommon.
The day started with a hearty breakfast in Real Coffee, with the entourage and vendors swapping stories and sharing the marmalade. The couple went to Mandala for a spa treatment and everybody broke for lunch.
Up to this point, the thirty or so guests were still clueless as to what will indeed happen. But they were given clues…
“When you hear Bono sing, it’s time to sit down”
So when the first bars of All I Want is You played by the shore, the ceremony commenced. Brief, emotional, powerful. And yup, they winged it!
Cocktails were served at the Tides roofdeck before they had to rendezvous at True Food for dinner. The event was much of an adventure as it was a wedding.
It was capped with drinks and firedanceers at the Sand Bar. Whew! What a day!
When I was editing it, I focused on the people and the places, the core of Cy and Kai’s beautiful wedding. Share it with us through this piece…
Sidenote from the Sidebar: This video was premiered at their post wedding party. It was much expected and built up and the pressure was killing me. (only because half of the people were already inebriated). But everything was a smashing success! (I myself was smashed!).
Oi! I haven’t had that much fun since my birthday.
