It’s hard to listen to a gospel choir without getting a tingle down your spine (didn’t we all get emosh when the choir sang at Meghan and Harry’s wedding?), which is why Leanne and Greig hired GeO Gospel Choir to sing at their big day at The Vu, Bathgate.
The choir sang the processional and recessional at the ceremony, as well as during the signing of the register, and then entertained guests throughout the drinks reception while the couple had photos taken.
“Our favourite song was probably the one I walked in to: Right By Your Side by James Morrison,” says Leanne.
“He is one of our favourite artists and we listen to him all the time, so to hear it sung by a gospel choir was so special and meaningful to us and a memory we will treasure forever. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room – they truly sounded amazing.”
The couple wanted to switch up the vibe in the evening to make it markedly different to the daytime entertainment, so had DJ Lloyd Stevenson, a friend of theirs, play a set.
“The dance floor was never empty and Lloyd even let some of our guests have an impromptu karaoke session,” laughs Leanne. “My 88-year-old great uncle from Wales stole the show!”
