Last Saturday we were honoured to play during James and Steve’s ceremony and drinks at the beautiful Kilworth House.
They mainly chose songs from our acoustic covers album on iTunes, available here. But wanted “One Day Like This” by Elbow to walk down the aisle to, which they both did with their respective parents, which was lovely.
Then we played a 45 minute set during their drinks reception, whilst guests enjoyed champagne and canapés.
On bank holiday Monday we had our first outing to the amazing Stapleford Park, despite it only being up the road from us in Melton Mowbray. What a stunning venue to host the wedding of the beautiful Youvinia and Aman.
The ceremony was held in the orangery, which as you can see by the pictures, looked absolutely stunning. Set off perfectly by Melissa Adriana Parmar playing the harp.
They asked us to learn “Kiss From a Rose” by Seal, which we loved playing while guests sipped the reception cocktails.
We had the pleasure of playing for Denise and Steven and guests at the beautiful and impeccably well run Pencoed House Estate in Cardiff. Jamie, the owner knows exactly how to run an amazing wedding and was extremely helpful to us from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Denise and Steven booked us for their ceremony and drinks reception. We played “Marry Me” by Train as Denise walked down the aisle, At Last by Etta James and Let’s Stay Together by Al Green as Denise and Steven signed the register and “All You Need Is Love” by the Beatles as they exited as a married couple. It was a beautiful ceremony with many guests to witness!
We then played during their drinks reception in the beautiful garden at Pencoed House Estate. We were honoured to be a part of their great day!
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.
