What is your most memorable wedding?
Apart from my own (the wife is looking over my shoulder!) my most memorable wedding was last Xmas at the Elvetham. Just such a superb bunch of guests. A mixture of all music styles including some obscure Irish Country, along with a rehearsed Father/Daughter dance that I provided and edited the music for.

A talk through what, where and when?

Friendly informal meeting, usually at the venue.
I tend to find that seeing the couple on the day, it reassures them that, as I’m here, everything will be fine.

Any song that is personal to you both. It doesn’t have to be a slow song. I’ve seen superb first dances where the songs have been upbeat, funny and even choreographed!

The Beatles. I mean, who wouldn’t!
