The King’s Court Masonic Centre in Chandler’s Ford, Southampton set the perfect rustic backdrop for our next wedding of the season.
Setting up as the guests were just getting dessert, it was clear the couple had put a lot of thought and effort into their special day: the mini-cheesecakes in individual glasses were a particular favourite. The children had a separate room to play and eat sweets while the adults could drink and chat by the bar. One child was fascinated with all our equipment and asked if he could play on Jon’s drumkit.
Starting with a new addition to our set for the first dance Brown Eyed Girl, the love and emotion in the room as the newlyweds danced was indescribable. Specially for the happy couple we added a couple of other songs to our usual set, I Will Wait and Build Me Up Buttercup. The dance floor was packed as the party officially got going with a particular shout-out to the gentleman in the grey suit who was throwing some serious moves on the dance floor.
The couple were very kind and said the band could help themselves to the buffet in between sets and as we relaxed before the second set, we all discussed our plans for the Easter weekend. Sarah told us all about her final training for the London marathon: we wish her the best of luck in the race!
Bex was feeling rather unwell by this point in the night but powered through and blasted out the second set like any other day. Proud of her!
One thing we love at weddings is watching guests descend further into the party spirit: and yes, there is always one guest who dances with real enthusiasm! As the drinks finish, the singing gets louder and the dance floor gets busier. For us: there’s no better vibe than a wedding and helping the couple celebrate their special day.
We wish the Rich and Amy all the best in their future together and look forward to seeing them soon at future gigs.
