April 2013 @ The Old Hall, Ely
We love the Old Hall in Ely. Its a great venue in a beautiful setting. We have played a many weddings there and are becoming their regular wedding band!
Helen & James had booked us after finding us online 9 months earlier. I had already met with the couple previously so I had a good idea of exactly what they were after In the evening.
We started the night with their first dance which was Here, There & Everywhere by The Beatles. This was a lovely track for the couple to dance to with meaningful lyrics. We soon invited the guests to join the happy couple on the dance floor and enjoy their first dance together.
Helen & James were insistent on a few requests which included a stripped down version of My Girl by The Temptations which was played after the first dance for the bride and her father. This was a lovely moment which we felt very lucky to have been a part of.
Unfortunately the weather was overcast with plenty of showers that night which didn’t dampen any spirits as the party was held inside. We played 2 live sets that evening which included our complimentary DJ service until the early hours too.
We finished the night with a selection of hits from Bon Jovi, Lionel Richie, Kings Of Leon and Queen which got everyone from 8-80 years old up on the dance floor singing along.
The night finished with 2 encores one of which was a request by the bride. This was something we were really looking forward to because we knew a lot of the guests would have appreciated it. As we started the first few chords everyone knew what it was and joined us on the dance floor once again to sing along to 500 Miles by The Proclaimers.
Another fantastic wedding at a lovely venue. Many thanks to Helen & James for choosing us as their wedding band and we wish you all the happiness in the future!
