Blowing your own trumpet

On Saturday I was at the wedding of Chris Taggart and Sarah Cousins. Although we were expecting the first rain for a couple of weeks the weather held and towards the end of the afternoon we were pleasantly surprised to see some sunshine.

The wedding took place at The Hop Farm in Kent and as Sarah and her father entered the room and walked up the aisle we enjoyed a live rendition of the “Trumpet Voluntary”.

Nothing particularly unusual in that, you might say, except that the trumpet was being played by Chris who obviously felt that he didn’t have enough to worry about!

The musical theme continued during the signing of the register as the Best Man, Anirban, and his wife Annalise sang Mozart’s “Bei Mannern, welche Liebe Fuhlen” from the Magic Flute supported by a string quartet.

Sarah and Chris’ first dance was to the Richard Rogers classic “I Could Write a Book”.
