Saturday 27th saw a trip down to Devon and the beautiful Mill End Hotel for Claire and Matt’s post-wedding ceremony drinks reception. They booked me to play some acoustic songs as guests arrived to the reception venue, and we had a lovely warm day for the occasion.
I set up just outside the main marquee where the wedding breakfast was due to take place and played two acoustic sets in the sunshine.
Here was the playlist from the day:
Pharrell - Happy
Damien Rice - Canonball
Bill Withers - Ain't No Sunshine
Coldplay - Magic
Paul Weller - You Do Something To Me
Ellie Goulding - Love Me Like You Do
McFly - It’s All About You
The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony
Elbow - One Day like this
Bruno Mars - Uptown Funk
Daft Punk - Get Lucky
Ben Haenow - Something I Need
Kodaline - The One
Bruno Mars - Locked Out Of Heaven
The Jam - A Town Called Malice
The Beatles - Let It Be
John Legend - All of Me
Ben E King - Stand By Me
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 🙂
