Don Jack was WetWetWet’s designer and brand manager from 1989 to 1997, designing everything from their hit single and album covers to their marketing and tour merchandise.
During that time, Richard Curtis approached Wet Wet Wet about recording a cover song to soundtrack his film Four Weddings and a Funeral.
In May 1994, “Love Is All Around” entered the UK Singles Chart at number four. After climbing to number two the following week, it finally got to number one on the 29th May. It then remained there for 15 weeks, the second-longest UK chart reign of all time (beaten only by Bryan Adams’ “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You”, which was number one for 16 weeks in 1991.
The song spent a further 20 weeks in the UK Top 75. As of February 2018, it has sold 1.9 million copies in the United Kingdom, making it the country’s best-selling love ballad of all time. “Love Is All Around” was named as the number one song in VH1’s The Ultimate Movie Soundtrack: Top 100.
