Jacqueline Duckworth



Fairytale Wedding

Posted on
On Friday 20th January, I had the delightful honour of performing at the union of Alicia Drake & Simon Eggins. I was approached in early December 2016 by the mother of the bride, Katrina Drake. Katrina is the one of the generous, beautiful and delightful ladies that I have had the privilege of knowing through my choral training with Vocal Manoeuvres. When Katrina approached me with the proposal of performing at her daughter's up-coming wedding in January, I just could not turn her down. There is just something ever so beautiful about performing at a wedding; plus, this wedding would be my first official job contract for my "Jacqueline Duckworth ~ Dramatic Soprano" singing business. Before I knew it 2017 was here and the date for the wedding was closer than I imagined. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, business matters and finer details were being discussed right and left. After countless emails and playing phone tag to finalise the repertoire and rehearsal times, everything was in order. I had not the pleasure of meeting the beautiful couple until the rehearsal came around. These two are just the most lovely people I have met. They are beautiful inside and out, and after getting to know them, I knew that I had to make their day even more special and magical! For the repertoire, we had selected two very beautiful pieces: "The Prayer" as sung by Andrea Bocelli & Celine Dion, and the well loved traditional wedding song, "You Raise Me Up". When I came in to do my rehearsal in the Garden Marque at the Victoria Park Golf Club where the wedding was being held, everyone was already in tears as my voice glistened in the beautiful acoustics. The big day finally arrived and what a most beautiful day it was. Alicia and Simon were truly blessed! The colour scheme for the wedding was fresh, pastel colours. I opted for a beautiful lilac silk dress, which was complemented with crystal flowers in my hair. This tied in perfectly with the pastel roses scattered along the wedding aisle and the beautiful mint lace dresses that the bridesmaids wore. I will not go into the finer details of how the wedding went down, as that is something that is shared by those who were there and that is not the purpose of this account. The main point I would like to make is that this one of the most beautiful weddings that I have had the pleasure of attending and it was like a fairy tale come to life. The emotions in the room were overwhelming and when I got up to sing during the signing, I could not help but let all of the emotions wash over me and be expressed through my voice and expressions. For though those pieces are beautiful to sing on their own and their messages are ever so captivating; to sing them in a context such as this, the emotions that you feel when you perform these work suddenly become two-fold and take you to a whole other level of emotion. I felt as though I was in a daze when performing and all the while whilst I performed, I just kept thinking that I just could not be happier for this beautiful couple. The accolades that I received afterwards were vast and ever so wonderful. I just adore hearing from those whose hearts I have managed to touch through the gift that I possess. On an end note, I would just like to say a most beautiful congratulations to the newlyweds Mrs Alicia & Mr Simon Eggins! May you two receive all the happiness in the world and live a life full of love, hope and wonder. Kindest Regards, Jacqueline Xxx
