Despite it being the start of advent and leading on towards Christmas there are still a number of weddings remaining for us to play at before 2022 wanders into 2023. Today we were headed to Bedfordshire for a beautiful church wedding in the small village of Potton.

The Wedding

Kate and Dean
St Mary the Virgin, Church, Potton
Saturday 3 December 2022

The Church

Potton parish church is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and is situated on rising ground to the east of the town and just under half a mile from its centre. An ancient right of way known as the Church causeway runs from King’s Street across the meadows and brook to the western approaches to the church.

The Church today consists of a chancel with adjacent south chapel (the latter now part sacristy and part organ chamber), nave, north and south aisles, north transept (Lady chapel) north porch with room above and tower. The earliest parts can be dated to the first half of the 13th century. These comprise parts of the north and east walls of the chancel, the north transept and the wall supporting the chancel arch. The north and south aisles with their arcades, and the nave are early 14th century. The north porch and tower are 15th century as are also parts of the chancel north wall, and were probably built when the old north vestry (now demolished) was added. The south chapel with its arcade is early 16th century (probably around 1500). The font is plain and appears to be very old, but has not been dated with certainty. In August 2002 the font was moved from the tower arch, where it had been since Victorian times, and placed under the 1994 “900 years window”.

The Wedding

Today we were providing music for Kate and Dean’s ceremony in the beautiful church of St Mary’s in Potton, Bedfordshire.

Aside of the two hymns which were played by the organist we played for the entrance of the bride, the signing of the register and the exit of the couple. Kate had chosen some lovely music for the ceremony:

Pre Ceremony
Gladiator now we are free
Jurassic park theme tune
All you need is love the Beatles
Forrest Gump feather theme tune
A million dreams greatest showman

Bridal Entrance
My heart will go on, celine dion

Signing
Friends theme tune
Mamma Mia ABBA

Exit
Angels, Robbie williams

To hear us playing some of these songs and many others head over to our listen page.

The service was beautifully conducted and Kate looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress. Dean didn’t look too bad either! 🙂

As we had been booked on our ceremony only package we didnt the go on to the reception which meant our time with Kate and Dean was quite short but very enjoyable.

We wish Kate and Dean every happiness in their future married life together.
