Well in this job we get to go some very beautiful places and this particular Saturday in July we got to play at a castle!, Lincoln castle.
Lucy & Craig hired us through our music agent last year, they decided they wanted to hire us a little different from our normal packages and hired us for part of their drinks reception and then another set during their wedding breakfast.
We arrived at the castle on a beautiful Saturday morning to set up, the couple had their wedding in a marque in the castle gardens which looked onto the castle and grounds.
We set up in the marque for the drinks reception & wedding breakfast, however as time moved on we couldn’t blame the guests for wanting to stay in the beautiful sunshine and have drinks so we decided to move out side and perform our first set completely acoustic next to the guests.
With permission of bride and groom we sometimes do this at the wedding, when the venue doesn’t have a licence for music to be performed on the grounds we can play completely acoustic, it always sounds beautiful and allows us to move around with you and your guests as you have drinks so you don’t have to worry if you are having photo’s far away from us we can join you!
Our drinks reception set included a mix of our more upbeat songs this works great in drinks receptions, the guests were fab having a little dance and sing along as we played.
We then moved into the marque, Lucy first said via e-mail that she would like us to play our second set in the middle of the wedding breakfast but as time move on she thought it would be better at the start. We aim to please and at any wedding we are more than happy to change our times to make your day flow!
for the wedding breakfast Lucy & Craig wanted a mix of romantic and laid back songs which works great during this time, music for people enjoy as they are having a chat and eating.
We ended our set just in time for the speeches and we packed down, as we left the guests we so kind and were tell us all about a folk festival they want us to join! watch this space!!
We packed up and treated ourselves to an ice cream! sometimes it has to be done!
Congratulations to Lucy & Craig, we wish you all the happiness in the world!
