The CoverUps kicked off 2016 with Susie and Paul’s wedding at the luxurious Cotswolds wedding venue, Calcot Manor! Just under two hours drive from the band’s HQ in Coventry, Calcot Manor stands as a 14th century renovated country house hotel. The interior was pristine yet welcoming and warm- the perfect location for this bride and groom’s winter wedding reception!
The ballroom was decorated with hanging baubles and snowflakes which gave a whimsical wonderland feel to the room. Crazy In Love by Van Morrison began to play as the newlyweds danced their first dance. Soon enough, all guests were invited onto the dance floor and the band got everyone up and dancing to Bruno Mars, The Beatles and Queen just to name a few!
The bride and groom had specifically requested The CoverUps’ 5-piece lineup so we didn’t hesitate to get Christen on the mic! With an added female vocal we were able to include tracks such as California Gurls by Katy Perry, Mercy by Duffy and Shake It Off by Taylor Swift for all the ladies in the room. Fellas, don’t be ashamed. We saw you dancing too!
The saying is true, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” Because even though the band had an extended set list at two and a half hours, it seemed too soon to be playing our last track, Time Of Your Life by Green Day, regardless of the fact it was almost midnight. It’s safe to say the band had an incredible time playing live music for Susie and Paul on their wedding day and we look back on the night with fond memories. Please enjoy a few photos from the night below!
