They had a couple of requests for the band and the DJ which we were of course happy to play for them and punctuated the evening perfectly. Sam wanted the last song of the night to be 'Don't Stop Believing; by Journey, a classic end of the night tunes that had everyone on their feet singing with the bride and groom.
The First Dance
Seb and Sam had 'I'm Yours' by Jason Mraz for their first dance. It was great to see them so happy and enjoying their moment surrounded by family and friends.
For the second song of the night they chose 'Dance With Me Tonight' by Olly Murs. This is a great tune to start off the evening and got everyone dancing.
The Venue - Rivervale Barn
Rivervale Barn is a fantastic venue with loads of great spaces for entertaining.
Inside there is the lovely timbered building that has been completely modernised with a bar, catering facilities and all the new bits that you would want and expect, but in the traditional setting.
There is also a great area where you an have your ceremony, allowing you to have all parts of your day in the same place and self contained.
Outside there is a great courtyard, perfect for drinks receptions and in the summer allowing you to have the doors open and having a beautiful open plan area, leading from inside to out.
Music at the venue is easily doable and works really well. They do have a noise limiter but for most bands this won't be a problem, and is certainly not a problem if you book AKA for your wedding their. You can read about noise limiters on our blog here.
Huge congratulations to Seb and Sam. It was amazing to play their first dance and keep the party going until the end. We hope they have an awesome time in Mauritius on their honey moon and we are sure to see them soon!
