Well, 2015 has been an amazing year for me I must say! I’m proud to say that being a musician is now my full-time occupation, and I’ve watched my little business go from strength to strength in the past couple of years.
2015 saw a 300% increase in wedding bookings, and 2016 is lining up to be my busiest year yet.
I’ve been busy filming and recording audio from many of my 2015 weddings and have a huge amount of footage to work through! So that means there will be lots of new live videos coming soon, along with some new professional demos – so keep an eye on my video page and YouTube page throughout the Winter.
On every booking form this year I’ve included an optional section for website feedback and improvements. I’ve been listening to everyone’s comments and will be implementing lots of the great suggestions that have come in – thanks everyone! One of these was an option to sort the repertoire by era rather than just list it in alphabetical order. This is the first improvement I’ll be bringing in, so keep an eye on the repertoire page which will have a new look for 2016.
I’ve played at a lot of fantastic places over the last few years, and this year I’m linking up with some of my favourite venues across Bristol, Bath and South Wales.
This first to announce is Aldwick Court Farm and Vineyard – an amazing wedding venue located in the Mendip countryside, within easy reach of Bristol. I love playing weddings at Aldwick – a perfect location where you can have exclusive use of the venue, in a relaxed setting with a great vibe. It’s also licensed for Civil Ceremonies, so you can host the whole wedding at one venue.
I’ve played guitar at Aldwick many times, and have loved it every time! I’ve played at the wedding ceremony in the old barn, and played drinks receptions/evening events in the new barn. It’s also possible to have live music outside when the weather is good.
The kind folk at Aldwick have included my on their suppliers lists, so it’s great to link up with one of my favourite venues in the area!
