A quick trip down the M5 took us down memory lane, and hundred pounds Justin to south wales. Being St David’s Day it seemed rude not to turn up to a wedding in south wales without a bunch of daffodils, so quick trip to the florists was added to the packing schedule and off we set! There’s always a marked difference in the scenery when you cross the border into Wales and the setting for this wedding was nothing short of idyllic.
A Fine Display Of Welsh Patriotism
As we entered the room to get setup whichever glance at the table plan. All the table name is made reference to Welsh traditions or landmarks citing me really good call with the daffodils! We haven’t been asked to play any Stereophonics or Manic Street Preachers, but we had some to hand just in case. Today’s first dance was Rule The World by Take That – a beautiful choice for a first dance.
A Bustling Dancefloor Through The Night
We were working alongside a DJ, which is a great option, especially when you’re looking to have the event run long into the night. As such, we were introduced to the DJ, and handed back seamlessly to him for our break. The break was shorter than expected after slight late running to the earlier parts of the day, but this just helped maintain momentum and we were soon into a blasting second set!
The poppy opening section of set two quickly filled the dance floor, and we were off! A rarity to the set, Love Machine (originally Girls Aloud, but our version nods to the Arctic Monkeys’ live lounge performance) really got the crowd going. It felt it went out of favour a year or two back, but perhaps it’s time to bring it back for a few shows and see how it goes.
Photos And Videos
We met the lovely photographer, Clare from LoveSeen, and with any luck she’ll let us use some of her photos here, but for now, here are our shots of the night!
