What is your most memorable wedding?
During a wedding at the Lansdown Club, Mayfair, London back in 2003. I arrived very early, and after setting-up myself and a few wedding guests took a walk to Green Park, we all sat and watched Terry Wogan introduce various famous acts on the Radio 2 stage including Simply Red, and Status Quo. Later that evening I played tunes from those acts. Fabulous wedding with amazing guests.
