"November 12th 2016 was a wonderful day for Sarah and I - it was the day we married! As some may know, Oliver Wakeman played keyboards at our church ceremony. He also put on an amazing concert for our guests in the evening; in the setting of a rather grand country house
in northern Scotland, he tickled the ivories to great effect. Around halfway through his performance he turned to Sarah and I saying 'and this is my wedding gift to you both'. There followed a tune, titled November Wedding, that he had composed especially for the occasion. Fighting back tears, I shouted, 'that’s going on the album!'
The album of course is Trinity, a project I have been working on for many years, with tracks based upon my artworks. We plan to release it at the beginning of 2019.
I went on to design a corresponding image and this is the result - Sarah and I in the guise of furry critters inspired by a photo (also shown), taken by The Schoolhouse Studio (Sarah's sister Katie and brother-in-law Ross - a pair of cool pro shooters!) The flowers on and about our wedding table were quite something else, every bit as fantasy-inspired as the bouquet in the picture, while my deep red wedding jacket was rushed up to Scotland from southern England by my guest and cousin Robert, because (being a super-pillock) I had forgotten to take it with me!"
