I was booked to perform the music in the ceremony of a very international wedding at Santa Eulalia in Mallorca. The bride was German, the groom was Russian, they lived in Switzerland and decided to have their wedding in Mallorca! They wanted live music in the wedding ceremony and chose some songs that were special for them. I worked out some nice versions on acoustic guitar and sang them during the ceremony. The songs were ‘Run To You’ – Whitney Houston, ‘Endless Love’ – Lionel Richie and Diana Ross (I only sang one part not both!) and ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ by the Bee Gees. You might not expect just how pretty these songs are as the recordings of ‘Run To You’ and ‘Endless Love’ are very big production songs, but on acoustic guitar they sounded really beautiful. The perfect atmosphere for the wedding ceremony music.
I also played for the guests as they were taking their seats to ease the tension before the outdoor ceremony and stop people just waiting in silence for the bride to arrive!
Their guests were full of very wonderful compliments to me after the ceremony, I was really touched by how impressed they were.
