Walton Hall is a regular haunt for the band. As one of the busiest wedding venues in the West Midlands, it’s not too surprising! A stunning 16th Century Mansion, Walton Hall stands in some beautiful grounds that sum up the best of Warwickshire countryside. With a collection of bars and function rooms, Walton Hall is also a well-equipped wedding venue for the British weather! On this day, fortunately, the couple were blessed with a rain-free, though chilly day!
Thinking Out Loud
We were introduced for the first dance by the delightful Reuben Lynch, a toastmaster we’ve worked with a few times over the years. He’s got a lovely warm, friendly style and it’s always fun being at a wedding with him.
The couple chose what we think is the first dance song of 2014 – Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud. It’s a classic, beautifully written song. The verses sum up the feeling of wanting to grow old with someone: a perfect reflection of a Bride and Groom’s feelings on their wedding day. It was a real privilege to play the song live for the happy couple, and as their friends joined them the night got underway!
Playing Through The Night
The couple had opted for an extra half hour of playing time. This was great, and with a relatively early start time, it meant we were playing through most of the evening. From the start, with people joining the first dance the dance floor never emptied. As the night went on the set got more modern, with Pharell Williams, Bruno Mars, Kings of Leon all making appearances. Come On Eileen was particularly good fun – a really fun party tune to chant along to!
