Have you started Christmas shopping yet? I’m usually a bit last minute but this year I’ve started early. Trying to think of something incredible for everyone on your list can take a while, especially for those who have everything and I’ve got such a busy runup to Christmas.
One of my favourite Christmas activities is my wrapping night – I love having everything laid out, picking the right wrapping paper, bows and decorations, having a glass of my favourite tipple and a mug of indulgent hot choc, while listening to cheesy Christmas music of course!
I love giving gifts, when the person undoes the glittery bow and peels back the tissue paper to reveal something extra special, it makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. Christmas is the most special time of year and it’s no wonder it’s when lots of couples decide to get engaged. Saying “I do” under the mistletoe is so romantic, and an engagement ring certainly is an unforgettable Christmas gift.
If you’re one of the lucky ones
As soon as the shops open on Boxing Day, you’ll probably rush out and buy as many wedding magazines as you can for inspiration. Whether it’s planning an engagement or the wedding itself, it pays to get organised. I love being a wedding saxophonist so I get goosebumps whenever my phone rings between Christmas and mid-January.
I might be based in Manchester but I’ve had the privilege of being the saxophonist for weddings all over the UK and the world. It doesn’t matter if it’s an over-the-top celebrity occasion or an intimate wedding, every wedding is special and the music you choose has a big part to play.
For some Girl On Sax magic at your wedding, please get in touch as soon as you have some idea of dates, as I do get booked up.
