Another Sunny day in August and we (Replay Acoustic Duo) were happy to travel to the beautiful Rothley Court in Leicestershire, for the wedding of Simon & Lianne. The drive up the venue and the venue itself are stunning and we were very excited to be setting up in such a lovely garden area. We like to get to all our venues at least an hour before to set up and sound check, and we got to this venue a good 2 hours before, as we were playing for both the Drinks Reception & Wedding Breakfast we needed our plan of the best way to move without disturbing any guests!!
The time came to 2 o’clock but our Bride & Groom were no where to be seen, another half an hour past and still no sign of anyone. Then at 3 o’clock some guests came into the gardens, followed by some more and finally the Bride & Groom!. They told us of how the ceremony had gone on a tad longer as the couple had exchanged their own vows and it had all gotten very emotional!! beautiful!!
We played our set, a little shorter than expected but entertained the guests with a mixture of our upbeat songs and even got some of the guests dancing!! We then moved our equipment through the back of the venue and up to the wedding breakfast room. Luckily our equipment is quite small so can fit in the smallest gaps and we squished into a corner.
Lianne & Simon had asked for us to play a mixture of romantic & laid back songs for their wedding breakfast and also if we could learn “Marry You” by Bruno Mars and play it while they dined. It was our pleasure a great song and you can now find it in our ‘Upbeat’ section on our set list.
A fantastic wedding and a pleasure to play,
Jess & Dan. x (Replay Acoustic Duo)
