Wednesday weddings are always cool. No…its a rule. You can’t have a wedding on a Wednesday until you are something rather special. It goes without saying that you have to have an equally awesome photographer for a Wednesday wedding as well. No rules were broken here! This was an amazing day. Amazing for many reasons. First it was just after the Jubilee, so everyone was in a patriotic state of mind (better than narcotic I guess). In a week of some pretty questionable weather this sat right in the middle with only a couple of moments of rain…quite incredible really. It had a church in a hospital and a brother of the Bride who could actually talk to Peacocks. Tell me people…that’s pretty special. These guys rock. Perhaps one of the most memorable moments for me came in the last few minutes of my coverage. The first dance, and in fact all of the music for the evening, was a carefully selected mix of music strung together as a single mp3 file and planned out amazing precision. There was only one hitch. The amplifier in the venue decided to go wonky and as a result any volume over bum rumbling cut out the protection switch shutting the amp down. This was not what I was talking about in being special Mr Amp. They were keen to the get the ‘evening’ started and to get the first dance out of the way. I told them a story about a couple a number of years ago who wanted to walk out of the church to “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. However when the church warden pushed play they got “Bohemian Rhapsody”. Take two…you guessed it…”Bohemian Rhapsody”. After a third visit from Freddie and the boys the Father of the Bride simple started singing and by the end of the first line the church was in full swing. With Catherine and Mikey, they knew they had enough volume to get through the first dance…just…and with the sun out it was unlikely that the real party was going to get started for another hour of so. A new amp was on its way from Basingstoke. So the solution was simple. The first dance was Elbow’s “One Day Like This”. Get to the repeat chorus and encourage the human peacock to start singing. What followed was a couple of minutes of pure wedding gold. As powerful and heart warming as my Bohemian Rhapsody experience.
