School choir cho­sen to sing at cou­ple’s wed­ding

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

A CHIL­DREN’S choir from Ivy Bank Pri­mary School were in­vited to sing at the wed­ding of a for­mer pupil.

Jes­sica Pick­ford and Daniel Brown­sill said their vows at St Peters Church in Macclesfield, and wanted a unique per­for­mance on the day.

And the cou­ple thought ask­ing the chil­dren’s choir to sing at the cer­e­mony would be just the ticket.

Sup­ported by their teacher Katie Bar­ber, the chil­dren ser­e­naded the con­gre­ga­tion with a ren­di­tion of Gary Bar­low’s ‘ Sing’, ‘Count on Me’ by Bruno Mars and tra­di­tional hymn ‘Make Me A Chan­nel of Your Peace’. Their teacher, Katie, pre­pared and con­ducted the choir be­fore the big day.

She said: “They sang with great con­fi­dence and clar­ity, there wasn’t a dry eye in the church.”

Katie and the chil­dren worked hard as they geared-up to share the wed­ding lime­light with Daniel and Jes­sica.

There were many re­hearsals, as the chil­dren wanted to know ev­ery word off by heart to make their wed­ding per­for­mance ex­tra spe­cial.

Katie added: “I am ex­tremely proud of them as they worked very hard to learn all the songs off by heart. Jes­sica is a for­mer pupil so it was a great priv­i­lege to be in­volved in the day.”
