Yesterday I played the piano for a wedding at the Tythe Barn at Priston Mill. This was my second visit to this wonderful venue and I was really looking forward to it. I was only required to play for the ceremony and the reception drinks. This meant that I had an early finish (4:30pm) and I could have a look around nearby Bath. I often take my own grand piano shell to weddings, but on this occasion the brides uncle let me use his grand piano shell which can be seen in the photograph below. This saved me quite a lot of setting up time and made the whole day a lot easier for me.

For the ceremony the bride chose the following music:

Gathering of the Congregation – “Nuvole Bianche” by Ludovico Einaud and “I See Fire” (The Hobbit) by Ed Sheeran

Processional – “Comptine D’un Autre Été” by Yann Tiersen

Signing of the Register – “I Giorni” Ludovico Einaudi

Recession – “Paradise” by Coldplay

The ceremony went really well and I really enjoyed playing quite a lot of music that was new to me. I am always willing to learn any requests which this is how my repertoire has expanded over thee years. After the ceremony I played a mixture of music for the drinks reception, but wedding guests seemed to like jazz and swing.

The happy couple couple seemed to really enjoy themselves and I do hope that they had a wonderful day.
