Gedge grew up in Middleton, Greater Manchester in the area known as Top of Hebers.

I’ve always thought that The Wedding Present was an inappropriate name for a pop group — more like a poem, or a book or something — and therefore quite attractive (to me!). I’ve also always been fascinated by weddings... – David Gedge.
