The Wedding Song

2015 marked the year of a wonderful collaboration between myself, Jayl de Lara, his wife Niki and Shem Booth-Spain. Originally composed by Shem on a run down wonky piano at The Angel Music House in the heart of the Forest of Dean, Jayl approached me to come on board with the project after seeing me in concert on electric harp.  After tweaking the original irregular time composition of Shem's electronica roots to fit a more standardised form suitable to accompany the steps of those walking down the aisle in addition to containing all the emotions and nerves that can surface along the way, I also added a few additions of my own....


Today - is the day. The day of days.
This day of ours. The best day of our lives ...
Today's the day. The day of our love ...
Our happy day. The day of all our days ...
Today's the day!
The day.
