Wedding Bells will be ringing. During the month of July the choir will be singing at no fewer than 3 weddings.
The first is held at Pentre Mawr, Llandyrnog, a grand country house near Denbigh in North Wales. It makes for a memorable setting for a wedding or wedding reception.
The second is at St Marcella’s Church, the grandest of all medieval Denbighshire parish churches. St. Marcella’s or Whitchurch (Eglwys Wen) – ‘the white church’, probably from its originally whitewashed exterior.
The next day wedding bells will ring at St Mary’s Church in the heart of the medieval town of Beaumaris, on the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales. Built during the 14th century, soon after the construction of Beaumaris Castle.
Wedding Bells of 2015
We’ve had the pleasure of singing at many weddings. They are joyous occasions and it is a privilege for the choir to be part of a special day for the bride and groom.
We have also been responsible for bringing ‘tears of joy and happiness’ with the poignancy and sentiment of some of our songs. We make no apology because it’s a sure sign that we’ve ‘hit the right note’.
Of course, everyone hopes that the sun will shine on their wedding day. And the choir will also do its utmost to radiate ‘warmth and sunshine’ on the big day.
In summary, the tradition of ringing wedding bells before and after the wedding has spread all across the world. It has become one of the most romantic parts in the modern church wedding.
In fact, it can present a musical challenge for the choir to sing at the same time. But we will always be ready to face the test.
