WEDDINGS

Your wedding day is a celebration of you and your partner. It’s about your bond… your magic… your life together. It can get pretty easy to forget all this when you’re planning a wedding because there is so much going on. The music you have on the day is the soundtrack to your wedding and it can be whatever YOU want.

I have played at countless weddings all over the world. Each one is different and each one is personal to the couple. I’ve played during weddings, during the cocktail hour(between the wedding and the reception) and for the reception.

My sound is best suited to the ‘Cocktail hour’. Usually the bride and groom are off getting photos during this time and my job is to entertain your guests prior to speeches and food. Some couples like a bit of live acoustic music after the main meal but before the main band or DJ. Some couples like a low key acoustic vibe for their reception. Some couples like live music during their wedding.

We got married at Waihi Beach, in New Zealand in 2014. This was our soundtrack…

I walked into ‘Glasgow Love Theme’ by Craig Armstrong… The Love Actually Theme Tune. I’m a sucker for a nice piano tune.

 
 
 

During the signing of the register my Cousin Helen @helencorryofficial played ‘Til Kingdom Comes’ by Coldplay

 
 
 

We didn’t have ‘a song’ before we got married but we did have songs we liked. Aaron Espe’s ‘Through Frozen Forests’ was our first dance song. The lyrics are probably more tapered toward family than a couple but I was moving permanently to the other side of the world so our wedding was very much about family. This was a Christmas song in the UK for Sainsbury’s in 2012. I don’t think anyone at our wedding had heard of it but again it didn’t matter cause it meant something to us.
