The CoverUps have traveled to London for numerous weddings before but rarely have the band had the privilege to play in venues so steeped in history as Skinners Hall located directly in the heart of the city. This historical 16th century building is rich in tradition and styled with paintings, coats of armour and period furniture. If you’re a bride or groom of English tradition and rich, elegant style, Skinners Hall would be a great venue for you. As if it were destined to be, Sophie and James Hewitt were the perfect bride and groom to suit a venue so elaborate as this one.
A Groovy Kind Of Love
Sophie and James did great ground work for us before their wedding day by sending us a list of their favourite songs from our repertoire. We pulled their set list together paying close attention to their preferred tracks and were confident it would go down a storm on the wedding day. We started the night with a live performance of the bride and groom’s first dance request, A Groovy Kind of Love by Phil Collins. The happy couple swayed to the music while their loved ones looked on endearingly.
Every Excuse To Celebrate
Soon after the party kicked off with a jam-packed dance floor and everyone singing along to Signed, Sealed Delivered I’m Yours- one of the most popular Stevie Wonder tracks known to wedding-goers. With an added female vocalist to make our 5-piece lineup we were able to bring out tracks such as Rehab, All About That Bass and Firework, just to name a few favourites from the girls side!
The night as a whole was one to be remembered. Not only were we in a historical building, we were celebrating a fantastic couple and having a blast performing some of our favourite tracks. We couldn’t ask for anything more!
The biggest Woot! Woot! and congratulations goes out to Sophie and James on this memorable day. We are privileged to have performed for your wedding reception and we hope you look back on the night with fond memories. Enjoy a few photos below!
