What is your most memorable wedding?

I'd been included in the wedding service rehearsals by a lovely couple who also invited me to their evening party. The service and reception were beautiful occasions, but the evening hit disaster when the DJ's equipment blew up!! Despite the long day, I played party music for dancing. The bride wanted to dance with her father to Chris de Burgh's 'Lady in Red' - as a child, she'd been his Lady in Red - but was heartbroken that the DJ was gone; I stepped in to play it on sax ......... the moment was so beautiful, there was hardly a dry eye in the room.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Accomplished; friendly; enjoyable; flexible; fun.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Surprising people with good, enjoyable music and seeing their delight! I always enjoy chatting with any children present, even if I have to break my schedule and play something for them.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Be individual - do what's right for you!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I played at a rock festival-themed wedding, the room had been decorated by the couple so there were posters of classic rock bands - e.g. Queen, Saxon, Santana - on the walls, whilst the bride had made all the table features. The 'cake' was actually a pile of doughnuts! 10/10 for individuality!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once a booking is confirmed, I send out my complete repertoire (and send out updates as new songs are added). I also send the booking form for them to complete and return, at which point I send the contract for their signature and return. If feasible, I like to visit the couple at home, to go through their music choices and other important matters.

What makes a romantic first dance?

Whilst many couples will ask their DJ to play a favourite dance track, a truly romantic song should be a slow, gentle perennial such as Elvis Presley's 'Can't Help Falling In Love' or 'Crazy' by Patsy Cline - both sound stunning played on the saxophone.

What is your number one floor-filler?

One Step Beyond (Madness)

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

I wouldn't - I love doing what I do now!

What is the soundtrack to your life?

I can't answer that as I enjoy all the styles of music I play - from dance/party numbers, pop/movie hits and back to older jazz and Gatsby tunes .... and much more!
