I love 'em.
Even though my bass wouldn't even recognise me if we passed each other on the street and is gathering (even more) dust as I type this, I still feel like a muso on the inside. I like to think of it as an attitude to life and an appreciation of the sometimes intangible.
When I first sat down with Duncan and Lucy, I didn't know at the time that they are both immensely musically talented (Lucy is a classical double bassist and Duncan a multi-instrumentalist), but we just clicked.
There is soooo much to love about their wedding day and I literally could not cull down the number their photos that I wanted to share with you any further than I already have. Simon Bills is just amazing and the story he has captured here is incredible.
Seriously, just have a scroll through these and you will feel as if you know the Bride and Groom.
Make sure you get to the end, though.
As Lucy describes: "The song we sang was 'God Only Knows' by the Beach Boys. We decided to sing a song because we are both musical, and we were much more comfortable performing in that way than dancing.
We both love the Beach Boys, and their music was a feature on the day in the ceremony music as well.
'God Only Knows' is a beautiful, simple song, and it also has Christmas connotations. As a bonus, we didn't need to spend much time rehearsing it because Duncan had actually planned to sing the song on the day as a surprise to me (with Laurence, the best man). But I really wanted to sing it and the surprise was ruined!"
