Jen & Richard’s Rowton Hall Wedding Chester
18th Dec 2012
For Jen and Richard’s special day at Rowton Hall wedding entertainment was absolutely key. As Christmas is around the corner, I have a few caroles prepared. There’s mistletoe above the door and love is definitely in the air…
First of all, I set up the white baby grand piano in the conservatory ready for the drinks reception. However, I was also providing piano music for the couple’s wedding ceremony. So, new roadie Ben set up a piano keyboard in the main room for me.
The couple had asked me to play some instrumental piano music for their wedding ceremony:
Bella’s Lullaby to walk in to;
Love Letters from Sex & The City soundtrack and
Make You Feel My Love for the signing of the register and
Skinny Love by Birdie to walk out to.
All great pieces with very different styles: certainly an interesting selection for any wedding pianist.
Once I had played the newlyweds out, I moved over to the baby grand piano with vocals this time for the drinks reception. As requested, I started off with Love & Marriage. I followed this with a selection of Rat Pack and more current songs from Jen and Richard’s requests list. Ben managed to hijack this great photo (see image) set-up by wedding photographer Jane Hockey.
Due to a quick turnaround by the Rowton Hall wedding team, the room was soon ready for the wedding breakfast. In summary, Jen and Richard are a fun couple and I thank you for letting me be a part of your special day. I wish the newlyweds every future happiness xx
