Salut d’amour; perfect wedding music for your day.

Picking the right music can be one of the most difficult of decisions when planning your wedding. Soundtracking the entire day is a big ask, especially as you transition from one setting and mood to another. From sophisticated ceremony to the tipsy cheesy dancing at two in the morning, music will be the life blood of your day, and choosing what you want early on can’t be emphasised enough.

So, if you are looking for a piece of classical music to be an accompaniment to your wedding ceremony or a elegant interlude, you can’t go wrong with Salut d’amour. This gentle and whimsical work is often considered one of the most romantic of classical arrangements, and is popular world-wide for weddings.’Amour


It was composed by English composer, Edward Elgar (Sir Edward William Elgar, 2 June 1857-23 February 1934). One of Britain’s greatest composers, he rose from humble beginnings in a cottage just outside Worcester, to become an important part of the international classical concert repertoire. If you hail from or are planning your wedding around Worcestershire or even West Midlands then this piece may have particular resonance for you. In West Midlands you’ll find some of the most absolutely stunning wedding venues in the UK like Birtsmorton Court where you can enjoy the traditional setting of the music.

Salut d’amour

Elgar wrote the piece of music while, it could be imagined he himself was in love. He finished it in July 1888 and it became an engagement present for his future wife. It was first known as ‘Liebesgruss’ (Love’s greeting). Salut d’amour is one of Elgar’s most well-known works, and certainly his most romantic. Elgar is also known for his works the ‘Pomp and Circumstance’ marches, but that might be a tad over the top for the walk down the ailse!


Salut d’amour was originally written for piano and string, but this piece could easily adapted into something that would suit your wedding. I have seen arrangements of it in it’s original setting, as well for a string quartet, violin and cello and even simply the piano. The combination of piano and violin is simply sublime, however a string quartet at a wedding is one of the most elegant and beautiful of additions. The great thing about it being such a popular work is that you will find plenty of musicians familiar, and in all probability, great lovers of it. It’s not a particularly long piece, so as part of the ceremony it can work wonderfully.

Light and airy, uplifting, yet sure to bring a tear to everyone’s eye when they first see you in your finery, this piece is without doubt the perfect romantic theme to your day. Shut your eyes, put your feet up, have a good listen and imagine the setting which inspired it, the picturesque landscape of Worcestershire. Wedding bliss!

What To Avoid When Choosing A Salon

Unless you know about cutting hair and performing all of the other services that you would have done at a hair salon, it’s probably best to look for the best hair salons in Portland and other cities. A quality hair salon offers services that can change the appearance and increase the self-esteem of those who utilize the services. When searching for a hair salon, there are a few mistakes that you want to avoid as well as a few things that you want to look for when choosing a salon.

One of the things that you want to avoid is choosing a salon based on the prices. Some salons might not charge that much for services, such as hair cuts or manicures, but you will get what you pay for at these businesses. If you want quality hair service, then you will likely want to pay a little more money. A salon that is less expensive usually won’t stand behind any of the services that are done. Some of the less expensive salons take easy ways to get around services, such as only wetting the hair instead of completely washing it or not letting the hair dry completely before styling.

Every salon is not the same. The service that you get at one salon won’t compare to another because there are different stylists who work at each location, and there are different services that might be offered. You want to ask about the certification of the stylists at the salon. Some might go to school longer while others might get the basic courses out of the way and begin working. Ask for referrals, or read reviews from others who have been to the salon.

Instead of going to various salons, find one and stick with the business. The stylists will get to know how you like your hair, and you will feel comfortable in getting different styles instead of the same thing each time you visit. When you find a salon that you enjoy, you might discover that there are some perks of staying with the same business, such as free services or discounted prices.

The Buy Me A Pie! Grocery List App For iOS And Android Devices

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of “Buy Me a Pie!” grocery list for SponsoredTweets. All opinions are 100% mine.

At first glance, I thought the look and feel of the app looked liked a recipe list with all the food listings looking like ingredients. But that was during the first time I ran the app.

After all, I wanted a grocery list app to help me with my shopping and thought of trying the Buy Me A Pie! Grocery List app.

Once I sifted through how it works, I finally got the hang of it.

Really. I am not much of a tech junkie but if I was able to understand easily on how to use the app, I am sure that you too can get the hang of it quickly. And this is because the user interface was designed for any user to be able to add and remove items in the list.

One of the things I hate with traditional groceries is having a list to keep tabs on what I need to buy at the grocery. For one thing, using the app, you can scrap that list and check it from within your smartphone.

Even better is that you can keep your lists in sync with your family or friends by sharing your account. With this feature, anybody that you shared your account with can add or change items on the go from anywhere using any device.

The best way to appreciate how the app can help you with your grocery duties is to use it. Try it!
