I wasn’t allowed to talk about it until it had been in Hello, but I’ve done my first celebrity wedding.
It was a magical day. If you’ve followed Russell’s story, over the last few years, as I have, you’ll know it’s a miracle he’s alive. Some of the best weddings I’ve ever done have been for family and friends. Because some of Russell’s life is in the public domain, I felt like I was at the wedding of someone I knew, yet we only met on the day of his wedding.
That’s part of being famous, I guess, that people think they know you and you lose some of your privacy. To be fair you gain too: I don’t remember Hello asking to be at my wedding! In Russell’s case he became famous for his wonderful singing voice and what he’s achieved with it.
As for me, I played background music during the dinner and DJed at the party.
Talking of fame, I almost got my picture in Hello. You can almost see me in the background during the first dance, almost.
So near yet so far…
Congratulations to Lizzie Marriage who got to star in two pictures. Jealous? bitter? Moi?

I wanted to say thank you to the people I spent the day with. Thank you to Heather at Fiestasol for recommending me to be the DJ. She ran a very smooth operation on the day. As you can see from the photos of the venue, Tara at Fiestasol created a beautiful look for the wedding. It was a pleasure to meet Raffaele Morelli and to eat at Restaurante Valparaiso. He and his staff treated me with great courtesy which, bearing in mind I wasn’t a guest, was appreciated.
And as for me doing a celebrity wedding, as far as I’m concerned, it was BUSINESS AS USUAL.
EVERY HAPPY COUPLE ARE THE VIPS ON THEIR WEDDING DAY.
Every wedding is a unique event. And it’s focused on the two people getting married. I play a role in that day, but it’s all about the two people getting married and what they want.
I’m happy that Russell and Louise got that. We had a ball on the dancefloor.
And every wedding I work at is the same: it’s a one off.
