Congratulations to Maureen and Niall who are celebrating their wedding today in the fabulous Carrickdale Hotel in County Louth. Delighted to provide music for this lovely couple’s first meal together as newlyweds and it was definitely a night to remember as I had the pleasure of playing a beautiful baby grand piano for the evening! Specially supplied by Precision Pianos in Dublin, this Yamaha C3X was a stunning instrument with superb sound and it added even more glamour to their celebrations! This couple were real music-lovers as they had a full day of entertainment planned for their guests, including The Molly Maguires who played lots of lively Irish tunes during their drinks reception and The Madisons Band who kept everyone on the dance floor all evening! This couple’s first dance song also just happened to be my first song during their dinner and it’s one of my all-time favourites – ‘Stand By Me’ by Ben E King! A great soul classic which still sounds as good today as it did almost 60 years ago! Really enjoyed meeting this lovely couple and being part of their special day! Wishing them all the happiness in the world as they set off into the sunset together!
