Loved providing music for Joe and Tamla’s wedding drinks reception today at La Mon Hotel! The happy couple arrived in style on a fabulous horse-drawn carriage which the groom had organised as a surprise for the bride but it was a huge hit with all their guests aswell! The sun kept shining all afternoon and Joe and Tamla had plenty of time to celebrate with a few photos in the gardens whilst I kept their guests entertained with lots of great tunes throughout the afternoon! Also enjoyed meeting Colm from Nuff Caricatures who kept everyone amused with his amazing drawing skills! I love to keep guests on their toes with the music and I always try to feature some pieces which are personal to each couple, but it’s not every wedding where there is such an obvious link to a song! If you’re a fan of music trivia like me, you’ll love this fascinating connection! Back in March, when we were all chatting about the big day, I was so excited to find out that today’s lovely bride Tamla was named after ‘Tamla Motown’ – the famous record label which was created back in 1959! So my must-have piece for today comes courtesy of this record label and it’s definitely the perfect choice for this couple. It was originally recorded as a duet by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross for Motown Records back in 1981 and the lyrics are just beautiful! Named by Billboard as the greatest song duet of all time, it is of course ‘Endless Love’! Really loved playing this for today’s happy couple and I hope it brings back lots of happy memories every time they hear it! Such a pleasure to be part of their fun-filled celebrations and I wish this fantastic couple all the happiness in the world as they start this wonderful new chapter in their lives!
