A brand new venue we had the joy of being amongst the first live bands to play, Shustoke Farm Barns is a beautiful, ornate yet modern setting for a wedding. As you can see in the photos (thanks to Simon Brettell Photography for these) below, it’s perfectly set out for a live band like The CoverUps.
It’s The Little – Or Big – Things!
Wedding days are typically steeped in gorgeous little details – centre pieces, button holes, favours to mention but a few. For any live band with tons of equipment to carry having doors directly onto the stage is one of those little things! On the other hand – these doors were fantastic old wooden doors which made a wonderful backdrop for the band!
Here Comes The Sun
In our years of playing, we hadn’t yet been given the opportunity to roll out this Beatles classic. A marvellous choice, Here Comes The Sun really speaks of the wedding day being the start of an amazing journey into life together. The gentle double guitar arrangement gave the couple a great setting for their first dance, and as you can see below, it really was a picture perfect moment!
A Rocking Party
The night rocked on with classics played to a teeming dancefloor. Livin’ On A Prayer gave the crowd a chance to show us the best of their vocal muscles – Bon Jovi would have been proud! For now, enjoy the photos, and we’ll see you next time!
