Stratford-upon-Avon’s Ettington Park Hotel remains one of our favourite Warwickshire wedding venues. Built deliberately in an older style than it appears, the Jacobean architecture gives the building a real feeling of history beautifully preserved. Every night we make the trip it’s great fun!
A Rocking Line-Up
Tonight’s line-up was fronted by James, who not only serves a mean vocal, but plays a tasty guitar too giving the whole band a real rock vibe. The set list, as selected by the bride and groom played directly into this – Sweet Home Alabama had the boys trading solos, and Dancing In The Dark made a relatively rare appearance with it’s guitar driven themes. Suffice to say, the singing along, which started before the band even struck a note, continued long into the night!
A Nod To The Wedding Planner
Jane of Planned For Perfection was the planner this evening. Over the last few years we’ve developed a great working relationship with Jane, and played at venues across the country. With any luck, she’ll ship us out on one of her Australian events! Always a pleasure to work with, tonight was no exception, and timings ran fantastically. If you’re after someone to plan your wedding, you couldn’t do much better than giving Jane a call!
A Long End To The Night…
… and happily ever after. The couple had chosen a number of ‘end of night tracks’ which gave the end of the set a real anthemic feel – from Viva La Vida to Yellow to Don’t Look Back In Anger, even Chasing Cars and Angels made an appearance! A really epic handover then to the DJ who took the guys on to 2am… by which point we were long gone! Another marvellous wedding at Ettington Park.
