Following Ricky & Ali’s wedding ceremony at Baibrook House, later on in the evening I made the 20-minute journey down the road to Combe Grove Manor for Helen & Phil’s evening do. A drive through the enormous grounds, and you’re greeted with these stunning views on arrival:
Due to the warm weather, guests stayed outside for a little longer than expected so I delayed my evening set a little until everyone was ready for the newlyweds’ first dance song, an acoustic version of ‘Always’ by Bon Jovi. We finished at around 11.30pm, a fantastic night and the acoustic music went down perfectly – I had a great time playing Helen & Phil’s selection of songs.
Their song choices for the evening live music:
Bon Jovi – Always (first dance) Jackie Wilson – Higher and Higher Savage Garden – Truly Madly Deeply Deep Blue Something – Breakfast at Tiffanys Christina Perri – A thousand years James Blunt – You're beautiful Coldplay – the Scientist Plan B – She said Razorlight – Golden touch Mumford and Sons – I will wait
Steve Miller Band – The Joker The Calling – Wherever you will go Lady Gaga – Bad Romance Rihanna – Umbrella Girls aloud – love machine Oasis – Wonderwall Tracey Chapman – Fast car Bon Jovi – Living on a Prayer Bruce Springsteen – Dancing in the dark Lynard Skynyrd – Sweet Home Alabama
Bryan Adams – Summer of ‘69 Mumford and Sons – Little Lion man Take That – Back for Good Ben E King – Stand by me
