Congratulations to today’s happy couple Lauren and Jaime who tied the knot at The Old Inn in Crawfordsburn! Their playlist was literally brimming with new requests as Lauren was so excited about their wedding music, she decided to feature lots of her favourites throughout their ceremony and drinks reception! For the Bridal Party’s entrance, Lauren chose not one, not two, but three fantastic songs! The first was for the bridesmaids’ entrance and it was a beautiful ballad from the musical ‘Wicked’ called ‘For Good’. Then Lauren requested a medley of two very famous Scottish songs for her entrance! The first, ‘Loch Lomond’, would be played as she and her dad were waiting in the wings and the second, ‘For The Love Of A Princess’ (from ‘Braveheart’) would be played as she walked up the aisle! The combination of songs worked perfectly and definitely made this special moment even more memorable! Then for the Signing, Lauren requested a very eclectic mix of music including ‘Stars’ from ‘Les Misérables’, ‘When You Say Nothing At All’ by Ronan Keating, and ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’ by James Arthur! For their Exit, there was more Scottish music as Lauren’s brother piped the happy couple back down the aisle to an old highland tune ‘We’re No Awa Tae Bide Awa’ meaning ‘We’re Not Away To Stay Away’! For their drinks reception, there were lots more requests including a Foy Vance song ‘Guiding Light’ originally written for acoustic guitar and vocals, but I created my own arrangement of this track specially for solo piano and I’m told it was a big hit with their guests! Also delighted to see Mick O’Dell again from Inkwell Caricatures who did a fabulous job as always entertaining today’s guests! Such a fantastic selection of music at this wedding, ranging from West End shows and Disney soundtracks to modern musicals and famous film scores! Really enjoyed being part of this lovely couple’s celebrations today and I wish them all the happiness in the world as they start this exciting new chapter in their lives!
