Last night we played for the lovely Danielle and Sean and their hilarious guests at The Woodlands, Hothorpe Hall – one of our favourite venues.
They booked us as their evening entertainment with DJ package. We started the evening off with some of our more laid back material as evening guests arrived for drinks. What started off as laid back soon turned into quite a few guests on the dance floor singing at the top of their lungs! It was like having my own choir! I was already looking forward to the second more up-tempo set we had planned.
Our last song of the first set was Danielle and Sean’s first dance, they asked us to learn Tenerife Sea by Ed Sheeran, it was a very moving first dance and looked like they had no idea the rest of the world was around them. Lots of happy tears in the audience and I was even a little bit choked up(very professional!).
During our second set, the bride, groom and guests did not disappoint! We played to a packed dance floor and once again, my choir was there. One gentleman in particular was louder than the rest and I was struggling to maintain composure again as he was trying to hit the notes in Ride on Time – very funny!
A lovely couple with great friends. We were very honoured to be Danielle & Sean’s wedding music on their wedding day.
Yesterday we played for the beautiful Nicole and Kristie who had their wedding at Home Farm Events in Braunstone, Northamptonshire, a venue we’d never played at before.
It’s a marquee next to a farm house on top of a hill and even though the weather was great all week, it decided to blow a gale yesterday! We thought the marquee might take off. It didn’t detract from the lovely decor the girls had worked hard to achieve inside the marquee though.
They booked our full day package. We played our first set during the drinks reception, a mixture of laid back pop and soul classic and contemporary songs as people chatted and enjoyed champagne, Pimms, beer and Sangria. Then we played 2 x 45 minute uptempo sets during the evening reception. The wedding guests were well up for a dance and packed the dance floor all night! We finished the evening with our DJ package until 12am.
We really loved playing for Nicole and Kristie and their fabulous guests. A beautiful wedding with great guests!
