We had our acoustic duo performing for their wedding ceremony and drinks reception and then the 4 piece electric band and DJ for their evening party. We worked with Daisy and Steve to create the perfect wedding soundtrack to their big day.
The songs that Daisy and Steve chose for when they are signing the register for our acoustic duo to play were: Ed Sheeran's Perfect, Ben E King's Stand By Me and The Man Who Can't Be Moved by The Script.
The First Dance
Steve and Daisy are big music lovers, and one of their first gigs they went to was a Snow Patrol concert, and so chose their awesome tune "Crack The Shutters". they had also prepared a cheeky mash up that their guests had no idea about which we segued into from the band, to DJ and back to band. It was awesome!
Gorse Hill is a stunning venue based just outside London in Surrey. We have played here a few times before and it lends itself really well to weddings and entertainment. There are great indoor and outdoor spaces, making it a great all season venue come rain or shine.
Daisy and Steve had their ceremony in the main entrance room with the aisle straight down the middle with their friends and family fanned out throughout the room with registrar at the end, overlooking the gardens. The staff at Gorse Hill are really well versed at turning this room into a beautiful ceremony space.
The drinks reception was held in the bar and second reception room where we had our acoustic duo as a roaming duo, playing in and amongst all the guests.
There is a great dining room that seats roughly 120 people seated for the wedding breakfast. We had a second pa system set up for them with a microphone ready for the speeches and to have music playing throughout the meal. A custom playlist that was chosen by Daisy and Steve, played through our system.
This dining room after the speeches was then turned into the space for the band and evening party where we had the live wedding band and DJ ready to go to see them out in style.
Making it special
Whilst we're on the subject of making it special, Steve had prepared a little something for the end of the speeches. Kodaline's "The One" is a special song for Daisy, and Steve contacted the band to see if they would wish the happy couple well on their day. They did and videoed an acoustic piano version of the song with a shout out to the couple. this was such a lovely touch and made their day stand out just that little bit more.
We also met the lovely Lauren at Daisy and Steve's wedding. Lauren is an awesome photographer and one that we highly recommend. She is great to work with and a lot of fun, her photos are great and she nows how to get the most out of her couples for those all important wedding photos. You can check out here website here.
Steve and Daisy have become great friends of the band and we cannot congratulate them enough on their wedding. I am sure that we will see them at another party again soon, or maybe just for a cheeky drink at the pub! :)
