A Special Touch for the Entrance of the Bride
By vaughan • 13th August 2015 • Posted in: Weddings We've Played At
On a Thursday near the beginning of April we played for a wedding in Cowley Manor near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire. Midweek weddings are becoming increasingly common, as people’s working lives are becoming more flexible. It’s also an innovative way of reducing costs without sacrificing the quality of your wedding.
It’s always a pleasure being able to provide a special touch for any wedding and in this instance the bride and groom were very keen to have Handel’s ‘La Paix’ from ‘Music for the Royal Fireworks’. The inspiration apparently came from an episode of ‘The West Wing’ (Season 7, Episode 9) where the President’s daughter is getting married accompanied by this very piece of music! Handel is always incredibly fitting for formal occasions or to create an elegant atmosphere and the sound of the string quartet playing this as the bride entered added something special to the moment. Their exit was equally memorable, being accompanied by ‘All You Need Is Love’ by The Beatles.
After the ceremony we accompanied the reception drinks with a selection of energetic pop and film music including ‘Diamonds Are Forever’, ‘Lean On Me’ and ‘Wonderful Tonight’ and left as the bridal party were entering the wedding breakfast.
