It was wild, wet and windy here in Bristol this morning. Combine that with the fact that I was out gigging until midnight, and that British Summer Time had the nerve to steal an hour of sleep from us, and I must be honest – I didn’t fancy getting out of bed when my 8.30am alarm sounded this morning!
However, drag myself from my pit I did, and I had a great day playing acoustic songs for the Bristol Vintage Wedding Fayre at Freemason’s Hall. It was lovely to meet lots of brides and grooms-to-be and chat all things wedding music. Lovely to see lots of friendly faces and mingle with fellow wedding suppliers too!
That’s my last wedding fair of the year (unless I book in any last-minute) – so if you want to catch me singing live, keep an eye on the gigs page 🙂
Tonight I played some live acoustic music at Goldbrick House, Bristol for the Bristol Wedding Tweet Up. The Tweet Up is an informal get-together arranged by Kirsten aka The Little Wedding Helper for people in the wedding industry. It’s a good excuse for us all to get together, have a glass of bubbly, some canapés and a good chinwag!
Goldbrick House is a lovely venue on Park Street in the centre of Bristol. I’ve played a couple of weddings there before, but never been up on the top level before (the Orangery). It’s absolutely beautiful with some great views.
