“It wasn’t in the parish hall – the reception. It was a big, big deal,” Idris explained.

“Meghan had sent me a playlist so I already knew what she wanted.

“They’re good friends and I wanted to make sure they had a great time, so there was a lot of pressure.”

“I think I need to earn a few more stripes before that happens.”
