Who doesn’t love a winter wedding?! With the recent weather warnings, we were worried the day would be snowed off! But thankfully the only glistening white for miles around was the beautiful bride, Lisa!
Arriving at Otterbourne, Winchester Village Hall for 3pm to set up on stage before the guests arrived, the room was adorned with fairy lights. Looking at all our equipment again for the first time after our Christmas break, it took us a few minutes to remember where all the different cables went! But we soon got going and set up in a very speedy 40 mins. This left us enough time to warm our instruments and voices with a quick revival of the set before leaving the guests to enjoy their delicious 3 course dinner.
As with all good weddings, everything was running a little behind schedule, which gave us a great opportunity in the back room to catch-up on our Christmas breaks. Moving onto other topics of conversation, we discussed ‘classic’ wedding subjects of ‘What would you do in the event of a nuclear strike’ before we all concluded its far too unlikely to have to worry about! But you know the classic boy scouts’ motto, ‘always be prepared’!
Leading on straight from a beautiful first dance, the guests were clearly ready for a party. Sarah and Craig are always ready to warm up a crowd but clearly none was needed here. From the first note of Let Me Entertain You all the way to our final Oh What a Night, the dance floor was packed for every song. A particular shout out to the lady in the black dress at the front who didn’t step off the dance floor all night – she seemed to have a different dance routine for every song!
The bride and groom were very kind to give us each a slice of cake after we packed up – a delicious sponge which really rounded off the evening on a high. We hope they enjoyed their big day and wish them all the best in the future. Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day and we hope to see you at other gigs soon!
