I wrote a suite, “On This Day”, with three movements — “Honour”, “Care”, and “Love” — to symbolize this couple’s military work and careers in medicine, as well as the day itself. I also performed a piano rendition of the suite during the signing of their bans in the church.
This very quick orchestration was done to provide background music for photo galleries. The trumpet solo at the very beginning is playing a bell pattern from Holy Trinity in Stratford-upon-Avon, near where the groom grew up.
I plan to eventually turn “Honour” in to a hymn for the armed forces.
