An Apocryphal Wedding Story

A clergy colleague in Nottingham once told the story of a wedding where the couple requested the theme from Robin Hood (ie Bryan Adams' Everything I do...) for the organist to play as the bride entered. However the organist made the quite understandable error of playing the theme from the TV series from the 1950s:

Sing up

Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men
Feared by the bad, loved by the good;
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, Robin Hood!

He called the greatest archers to a tavern on the green,
They vowed to help the people of the king,
They settled all the trouble on the English country scene,
And still found plenty of time to sing...

If it happened, it must have been a bit difficult for the couple, but I bet you hope it really did take place.
