Destination Wedding Music in Mallorca

Lennart and Julia, a German couple, booked me to play piano and sing at their destination wedding in Mallorca. I was asked to play piano and sing in their wedding ceremony. They decided to use a big orchestral and choral piece of recorded music for the bride’s entrance under a big old tree. It was a very cool setting for a ceremony which I didn’t manage to capture on my phone but I’m sure the photographers did a nice job!

The songs they asked for were quite difficult for me and at one stage I did panic a bit but after lots of practice and deciding how to do them and make them my own I felt I cracked them and ended up really attached to them.

1) Not While I’m Around – Sweeney Todd / Jamie Cullum

2) Don’t Wait – Mapei (See my version of Don’t Wait by Mapei in my video below)

3) Piano instrumental of Part Of Your World from The Little Mermaid

Live Music for the Wedding Drinks Reception

I then had to do a stealthy and ninja style move from the old tree in the middle of nowhere up to the main finca where the drinks reception was to take place. The guests didn’t even notice my husband / roadie park behind another tree and run in and carry all the really heavy gear to the car while they were drinking lemonade and having photos done! By the time they walked up to the finca, I was already set up and playing much to the surprise and delight of the guests:
“oh hey! how did you get here!”
“oh wow it’s the singer again!”
“oh I’m so glad you’re playing more I enjoyed it so much in the ceremony!”

I played until they went into the next set up for dinner as the sun began to set and the skies turned pink.

Congratulations to Lennart and Julia and thanks for having me as part of your day and entrusting me with your most precious songs!
