Bridal Chit-chat (1)

evelyn @ 12:44 pm

The order of service for my last wedding had on it a thank-you ‘for the beautiful music’.

Oops, I thought, that’s a bit premature. So even though it was only W & M*, I became rather nervous. However, yesterday I was actually sent pictures of the wedding, something that has never happened before. So I can only assume that they did like the music after all …

On the subject of weddings, here’s a snippet of a telephone conversation I once had with a bride:

Bride:      … and can you play ‘The Marriage of Figaro’?
Me:         That’s a whole opera. Which bit?
Bride:     er … Track 8.

*W&M = Wagner, Bridal March from Lohengrin (‘Here comes the bride’) and Mendelssohn, Wedding March from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In other words, the two usual ones.

  1. A W&M wedding: Is that a bit like a C&A funeral? (Crimond and Abide with me.)
