Congrats Kate & David! Wedding & Live Band in Fryerning, Essex
One of the sunniest days of the year so far! Kate & I were hoping for that sunshine for months prior to the wedding day, as my band were going to play a set of live acoustic music for Kate & David and their guests during the afternoon reception drinks on the lawn.
We had a gazebo (just in case) as English weather can be so unpredictable...! However, we were lucky and the sun shone down on us all afternoon on June 6th 2015!
The band's acoustic set went down a treat in the sunshine as the guests sipped their colourful welcoming drinks and children played in the beautiful garden of David's Aunt & Uncle. There was a beautiful stylishly decorated marquee for the 100 guests. The garden also created a romantic atmosphere with candles, wooden love-hearts hanging from trees, rope swings with lace ribbon and many other gorgeous outdoor wedding decorations.
The delightful village of Fryerning, Essex is a perfect wedding location, providing such a picturesque countryside village setting. Fryerning is a village near to Ingatestone, Essex.
Later on, CandyStripes got the party going fast and furious! We played the live music for the evening as well as the afternoon... and were lucky to have a perfect audience! A hugely full dance floor and plenty of singing back to us - thanks to Kate & David and your crowd!
We had a great time and enjoyed playing Kate & David's special songs live, 'Chasing Cars' by Snow Patrol for the first dance and Queen 'You're My Best Friend' for the second dance. Not forgetting Queen's 'Don't Stop Me Now' as the final song of the night... :-)
Thanks for making the band feel welcome, and thanks to David's aunty for the milk/tea. ;)
Best wishes for the future
Hannah and the band, CandyStripes x
