Well it was touch and go as to whether Paul and Carolyn's wedding would go ahead as planned and a very stressful time in the run up to the big day but it happened and they managed to pull off a fabulous day despite the current issues.
What's more the sun even payed a visit and allowed the guests to enjoy the gardens too.
Antiseptic wipes and handwash was available and we didn't run out of toilet paper :-)
I was there all day providing all of the musical input even allowing and impromptu change to get some music outside for the guests to enjoy.
Carolyn walked into the ceremony to Shania Twain's From this Moment and Paul and Carolyn came out together to Daryl Hall's You Make My Dreams.
The couple's three children Harper, Ollie and Oscar doing a fantastic job.
Some unique and emotional moments during the speeches as tributes were played to absent relatives and the key influences that both sets of grandparents had on their lives.
Speeches from the Brides Mother, the Groom, Best Man Steve and the Brides Envoy Daniel.
The evening celebrations got underway with the cake cutting ceremony followed by two not one bouquet tosses with Paul throwing a surprise bouquet for all the boys so they didn't miss out.
A first dance to Ed Sheeran's Perfect which fit the bill perfectly.
The Aaron Bailey Band did a fantastic job stepping in at the last minute to cover for the previously booked band who's singer was in self isolation.
A family dance to Ellie Goulding's How Long Will I Love You and we ended the night with Tina Turners Proud Mary.
Paul had this to say "Amazing service from beginning to end, covered our whole day. Everything from song choice to crowd pleasing, photos and videos Ian did it. Great service would highly recommend"
Carolyn said "We had Ian at our wedding throughout the whole day and he was brilliant . We met before hand to get a list of songs throughout the day and to know what we were wanting and he went above and beyond. Everyone had a brilliant night and you kept the mood high!"
Special mention to the other fantastic wedding professionals I had the pleasure of working alongside.who are all going through some challenging times at the moment:
