Avile and William were married on 2nd August. We had many communications before the day, planning and sharing ideas. The Marquee in the gardens is a pleasant place for a wedding. We provided background music for the reception, which was begun with “Spring” from the Four Seasons by Vivaldi for them to be welcomed into the room.
There were 3 courses served at dinner, accompanied by a largely classical background playlist. Speeches were given and recorded, and a competition between the guests for what the length of the speeches would be, as devised by the best man, David.
A mix of old and new music, sprinkled with some Spanish music as selected by Avile. A good time was had by all.
Tom and Alicia had a cool, but dry day for their wedding. I set up for the ceremony in the main venue, and played music to keep guests entertained until the registrar and bride arrived. Some very apt ceremony choices musically- “Marry me” by train, 1000 years by The Piano Guys as Alicia entered… just a couple of examples.
The wedding breakfast was in the annexe function room. We had up lighters in the corridor as well as the function room to match the colour scheme of purple, and an extension speaker in the bar, to facilitate anyone in the bar being able to hear both music and announcements. Tom added some fun to the speeches with scratch cards. There was some money won!
Music selections included a mix of dance, rock, and some classics and chart. A very happy wedding party, with plenty of good humour and love in the room.
Stage for the evening
I was a little sad when I woke up and found that it was raining. I was hoping for good weather for them. However, the weather did not seem to dampen the spirits of the party, the guests all appeared happy to be there and celebrate the special day.
Everyone arrived for the reception, and enjoyed a hog roast, accompanied by instrumental background music. There were delicate garden flowers on the tables. The speeches given manifested the love they had for each other, and the love of their families for them.
The hall was decorated by Naomi, Glen and friends. You will see the bunting and pom poms hanging from the beams. I was set up to the side of the stage, as the top table was also on the stage in the hall. We put some blue up lighters behind the top table to compliment the pom poms. The top table came down for the evening party.
Naomi and Glen’s 1st dance was “I knew I loved you” by Savage Garden. As soon as everyone joined them on the dance floor, there was enthusiasm from the guests for dancing, and there was only a lull for the buffet, again this was made by the couple and friends and family. A good night was had by all.
Thank you both, it was a privilege to be part of your day!
