I never dreamt that Jingle Bells would be my wedding song!
Two years ago, our People Director, Steph, had a secret Christmas wedding, with just a handful of immediate family in attendance.
She and her partner John organised a festive afternoon tea for their families to meet properly for the first time, then walked around the corner to Brighton Town Hall for an intimate service. After the wedding ceremony, everyone headed to a local pub, for a three course Christmas lunch and a few glasses of bubbles. It was here that the day took an unexpected turn…
Steph explains ‘The only traditional element that we had arranged was a winter-themed red velvet wedding cake, and immediately after cutting this, some double doors opened just behind us and a brass band started to play ‘Jingle Bells’. Our family all started shouting at us to dance, so we ended up dancing together with everyone clapping and cheering. We had decided against having a first dance, so it was a huge surprise to suddenly be dancing in front of a roomful of strangers - it was a completely unplanned, but magical moment!
Now every Christmas when I hear Jingle Bells playing on the radio or in a shop, I have a little smile to myself and remember the happiest day of my life.
