Delighted to provide music for Catherine and Richard’s wedding reception and evening meal at Queen’s University Belfast today! This venue holds a special place in their hearts as they first met when they were both studying here, so it was the perfect setting for their celebrations! Their guests were welcomed on arrival with champagne and live music, and this fun-loving couple had also organised garden games and sweet treats to keep everyone entertained throughout the afternoon! My playlist for the day featured lots of their favourite tunes, ranging from classic love songs to modern chart hits! They also requested a fantastic song for their dinner entrance which was a definite crowd-pleaser! It was a big hit for Madness back in 1981 and it was a big hit again tonight when Catherine and Richard walked into The Great Hall! It took a few seconds for everyone to recognise the song but it wasn’t long before they were all singing along to ‘It Must Be Love’! Such a memorable choice for their debut appearance as newlyweds! Also enjoyed catching up with two of today’s guests Andrew and Suzanne whose wedding I played at last year and it was good to see married life is treating them very well! Such a pleasure to be part of Catherine and Richard’s celebrations today and perform at this beautiful venue where their love story began! Wishing them a fabulous future together and hoping the happiness of today lasts a lifetime!
