Delighted to provide music for Janice and William’s wedding ceremony this afternoon at Ballynahinch Baptist Church and an absolute pleasure to accompany today’s beautiful soloist Laura who sang a piece originally written by Bob Dylan over 20 years ago which recently became a huge chart success for Adele! The lyrics from ‘Make You Feel My Love’ are so romantic and Laura’s stunning performance created the perfect backdrop during the Signing! Choosing the right ceremony music can be a challenge but I’m always excited when brides (and grooms!) send me a surprise request for their other half and today, Janice chose a fantastic feel-good song which she knew William would love! Some of you might remember it from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical ‘Carousel’ but football fans will recognise it as the Liverpool supporters’ song! But whether you love it as Anfield’s anthem (like William!) or as a show tune (like me!), you’d have to agree that it was definitely an inspired choice for today’s wedding! I played it specially for the arrival of the groom, to help him feel a little more relaxed as he waited for his beautiful bride, and it worked a treat! It’s true, music can relieve wedding nerves! But thankfully Janice arrived just in time for kick off! Wishing this fab couple a wonderful future together as they set off into the world as a winning team!
Arrival Of The Groom: You’ll Never Walk Alone (from Carousel)
Signing Of The Register: Make You Feel My Love (Bob Dylan) and Can’t Help Falling In Love (Elvis Presley)
