This was our first trip to Walton Hall this year – but the venue’s lost none of its charm. Set in beautiful Warwickshire countryside, the venue really has it all as far as looks go! Arriving in the height of the sunny afternoon showed of the lush surroundings – it hardly felt like being at work.
Acoustic Wedding Breakfast Set
Lead vocalist Mike arrived mid afternoon to get set up for an acoustic set over the wedding breakfast. Despite timings being a little fluid, everything was set up in good time for the guests’ arrival and the acoustic guitar struck up as the starters were served.
Our acoustic set is a mixture between purely acoustic and mellow tunes and songs that as a full band might find their way into the evening set. It’s always good fun to give a twist on songs that people know and love, and the acoustic set is a perfect opportunity to do this.
Set Down, Set Up Again!
As is often the case with the afternoon sets, the location was completely different to the evening, meaning everything needed packing up completely before driving round to a different part of the venue and setting back up again. Things are a little stripped down for the acoustic setup, but still, we were more than ready for dinner when that time came!
Elvis Has Entered The Building
The first dance was Elvis’ rendition of Can’t Help Falling In Love. It’s a lovely track, and while the original recording is hard to recreate (there’s a large choir backing him!) our version maintained the feel of the original.
From there the night went on strength to strength. A few fun tracks that hadn’t made appearances lately included Dancing On The Ceiling, Place Your Hands (rocking riff!) and Chelsea Dagger.
We’ll leave you now with some photos of the day and hope to return for another wedding at Walton Hall soon!
