Congratulations to today’s happy couple Chris and Aleesha who are celebrating in style at Gracehall in Dollingstown village – an enchanting venue nestled in the quiet countryside and brimming with character and charm! I had the pleasure of playing throughout their wedding dinner as they shared their first meal together with friends and family! The banquet hall looked breathtaking with its spectacular chandelier and rustic decor! My playlist featured artists from the last eight decades, ranging from Ella Fitzgerald to Ellie Goulding and everything in between! Love songs may have changed over the years, but there will always be timeless classics which live on in our hearts forever! A perfect example is this iconic ballad written in 1963 by the prolific songwriting duo Burt Bacharach and Hal David, whose stellar collaboration produced some of the most enduring songs in American popular music. The most famous version of this song was recorded seven years later by The Carpenters and became a number one hit when it was released in June 1970. With its distinctive melody and memorable lyrics, it remains a favourite for many music-lovers and a must-have for my wedding playlist! From its opening bars, it captivates the listener and inspires romance, making this the perfect song to celebrate Chris and Aleesha’s special day! Wishing this fantastic couple all the happiness in the world for their future together!
