What is your most memorable wedding?
A wedding I did at the Lansdown Club, Mayfair, London back in 2003. I arrived very early, and after setting-up I and a few wedding guests took a walk to Green Park, we all sat and watched Terry Wogan introduce various famous acts on the Radio 2 stage. Then at night I played tunes from those acts. Fabulous wedding with amazing guests.
