Autumn/winter wedding?

Why not? Perhaps the weather is not as reliable as summer, but there’s not much in it. Actually July and August can be too hot and certainly not great for photography.

Use with Bluesound Powernode 2 for a fantastically minimal system, does our TV sound too. Speaker drive units are usually concave disks, made from all sorts of materials from paper to aluminium and carbon fibre, with a powerful electo-magnet at the middle to make them vibrate.
