Loved being part of Karen and Sudhir’s wedding celebrations today at Galgorm Resort and what a wonderful selection of songs they featured throughout the day! The Phantom House was the setting for their intimate ceremony with friends and family and Karen walked up the aisle to an instrumental version of the theme song from Dirty Dancing – ‘The Time Of My Life’. A perfect backdrop for this beautiful moment! For the Signing, the romantic theme continued with a very soulful and captivating song – ‘Fields Of Gold’. Although it was written and recorded by Sting in 1993, there is something very touching about Eva Cassidy’s version which was released just three years later in 1996. Two very iconic versions and equally memorable! Then to end the ceremony and start their celebrations, Karen and Sudhir requested ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ – a really upbeat song to set the mood for the rest of the day! For the rest of the afternoon, I relocated to the Renaissance Suite where I played a mix of easy-listening songs and pop/rock ballads to keep everyone entertained until dinner was announced! I was also delighted to play a beautiful piece which had a special meaning for this couple as it was the song they first danced to many years ago! Released 26 years ago yesterday, this song has the longest unbroken run at number one on the UK Singles Chart where it spent 16 consecutive weeks in 1991! It was famously featured on the soundtrack for ‘Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves’ and if you haven’t already guessed, it is of course ‘Everything I Do, I Do It For You’ by Bryan Adams. A fantastic selection of music today and great to see some movie themes making their way into my playlist today! Wishing this wonderful couple all the happiness in the world as they start their new life together!
