We’re delighted to announce that the renowned tenor, Russell Watson, recently celebrated his marriage to Louise Harris with a meal at the Swettenham Arms in Cheshire with his closest family. We’re very proud to have been chosen to help him celebrate such a special occasion.
Singer Russell is well known for both operatic-style and pop songs, and is known as the ‘People’s Tenor’. He’s been singing since he was a child, and gradually rose to fame after performing at working men’s clubs. He first came to widespread attention in 1999 during a series of appearances at public sporting events. including singing ‘God Save the Queen’ at the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, ‘Barcelona’ at the last match of the Premiership season between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford and a full set of songs at the 1999 UEFA Champions League Final in Barcelona between Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
In 2001, he released a debut album called ‘The Voice’, which was later followed by four others. However, an album planned for November 2006, ‘That’s Life’, was delayed due to the removal of a benign pituitary tumour. A year later, he had to have emergency surgery to remove a regrowth of the tumour.
The treatment and rehabilitation were a success, enabling Russell to keep on doing what he does best – singing. In 2010, when he released La Voce, his latest album.
Following the meal, Russell and Louise posed for photographs in the beautiful Lavender Meadow at the 16th century country inn. We’d like to wish the new Mr and Mrs Watson all the very best for the future.
