A First Wedding

Apologies for the delay getting this news up, it's been none stop recently!

The Corps has played at a couple of weddings before for members, guard of honour/fanfare type stuff. We've never done a full wedding for an 'outsider'. I got the booking form back sometime last summer, having talked it through with Pete and old hat Mr Trev, we decided to go for it even through it would be around the 1st show (back when it was booked it was the day before).

We had to learn 3 hymns, the 'Wedding March' and relearn a few statics to play for 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after as the pictures were taken and guests left.

We had 3 rehearsals to get it all sorted, this may sound a lot but when it's the week of it the pressure was certainly on!

On the day we did excellent, rather than me commenting on it, I recevied the following :-

Dear Oliver

 

I just wanted to say thank you to you and all the band members for the fantastic job you did at our daughters wedding on June the 11th.  you created a wonderful atmosphere for the day which continued throughout for us.


We appreciate all the hard work you all put in learning the hymns and the tunes you  played outside the Church both before and after the ceremony. We have had so many people comment on how great you all were. Again thank you and well done to all.  You did yourselves and our wedding proud.

 

Thanks

Phill and Lyn Parker
