Welcome to the very first week of my new linky, Musical Memories. Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, Mum always had music playing at home, UB40, Alexander O’Neil, Queen, Annie Lennox – just a few memories from my childhood. Often when I’m in the car or a shop and I will hear a tune and it will take me back to a moment in my life. Let’s share those moments with each other.
This week’s theme ties in with the start of being all shiny and new – New Beginnings – it could relate to anything you want it to, the birth of a baby, the start of a relationship, a new home . . .
And so to mine!
This was my entrance music as I walked down the aisle to be married to my wonderful Husband, though it was played on the harp! From the moment we began planning our wedding, I was transported back to the film Love Actually when Keira Knightley walked down the aisle after marrying her beau and a choir erupted into All You Need Is Love, accompanied by musicians in the congregation. I loved it but sadly my guests were not musicians so I knew we wouldn’t be able to scrape together a band, or a singer for that matter!
The only sad part to this memory is that, actually, I couldn’t tell you what it sounded like on the harp. I couldn’t tell you what any of it sounded like on the harp because I was so caught up in the emotion of the day and the sight of my Husband to be that all other senses were shut off. I’m told it sounded great but it doesn’t matter because that song will always remind me of one of the happiest days of my life!
Over to you . . .
