Wedding of Carla and Arron took place at Pentre Mawr Country House, Llandyrnog, on Saturday 2nd November, 2019.
Surprise at Wedding of Carla and Arron
Carla and Arron had engaged the choir to sing, but had kept it a secret from family and guests.
As the guests arrived and waited for the ceremony to begin the choir, accompanied by Ann Edwards, who had stepped in at just 48 hours’ notice, entertained them with a selection of songs.
Y Ddau Wladgarwr
We’ll keep a welcome in the Hillside
Gwawrio Mae’r Bore
Men of Harlech
all specifically chosen by the bride and groom.
You’ll Never Walk Alone
Another surprise for the guests was the bride’s entrance music.
The choir burst into a rousing rendition of “You’ll never walk alone” – the anthem of Liverpool Football Club.
Chosen because the couple and very many of those present are fervent fans.
A slip of the tongue by Arron caused some amusement when he declared he “knew not of any unlawful impediment”.
During the signing of the register the choir performed “O Gymru”, followed by “The Rose”.
Deiniol Jones giving an excellent debut performance of the solo.
Mr and Mrs Coldwell then led the guests to the gentle flowing “Moon River” by the choir.

Background story to the Wedding of Carla and Arron
Before the wedding the choir was probably more nervous than the Bride and Groom! All is revealed.
An urgent replacement needed because Nia Jones, our regular accompanist, was unwell.
Choir members on holiday, choir members taken ill, songs not allowed by registrars.
However, we needn’t have worried.
Ann, who has accompanied the choir previously, kindly agreed to step in with just 48 hours notice.
She gave an impeccable performance.
Choristers not expected did turn up. Deiniol Jones was ready to substitute for Peter Davies and ‘The Rose’ continued to blossom.
The bride and groom were very flexible in our choice of alternative songs.
The choir wish Carla and Arron every future happiness together.
