Just down the road from The CoverUps hometown in Coventry was the celebration of Joanne and Ben’s wedding in Edgbaston, Birmingham! Joanne and Ben decided on an intimate wedding with only their close friends and family. After a ceremony at their local church, the bride and groom, along with their guests, wined and dined in an elegant garden marquee set up.
Once we arrived at the reception location we immediately unpacked our gear into a side room in the marquee away from the guests enjoying the wedding breakfast. Once set up, we sat down ourselves and enjoyed delicious beef wellington- an impressive dish for an outdoor wedding! Our stomachs were thankful and the meal prepared us for a lively evening performance!
As requested by the bride and groom, the band played Shut Up and Dance to kick off the night and everyone was encouraged onto the dance floor. In our opinion, this is a very clever way of keeping the tradition of a first dance if you don’t want all eyes on you! It was an energetic start to the evening that kept going throughout the entire reception!
Thank you, Joanne and Ben, for inviting us to perform at your wedding. We hope it was even more memorable for you than it was for us! Huge congratulations to you both!
