Wedding on the Thames, Golden Sunrise, Temple Pier

What an experience!!! CandyStripes played for the first time ever on a (moving) party boat on the River Thames for the wedding of Jess & Michael! The MV Golden Sunrise.

Despite it being a challenging load-in, and somewhat hairy experience travelling with equipment on a dingy (albeit a big proper boat-type one) a little way across the Thames to get to The MV Golden Sunshine, and then passing the gear from the dingy to the Golden Sunrise, ready for setting up!

It was a fantastic gig, the guests were amazing and the sights were brilliant! We had a great gig, and some lovely feedback from guests at the end, as we all disembarked the boat!

I have some pictures below to express the night.

Thanks Jess & Michael for looking after the band, and congratulations on your wedding party!

Best wishes

Live Music for Hannah & Stuart's Wedding, Sevenoaks Kent

An idyllic setting on 20th June 2015, so close to the longest day of the year... And the first time we've ever played in a giant Teepee! 

The wedding was set in a marquee in a family member's beautiful garden, full of flowers in bloom (photos to follow!).

We played their first dance live, Ed Sheeran 'Thinking Out Loud' - a great song, and popular choice in recent months; followed by 2 sets of live music with DJ/disco (by me) in between, and a full dance floor all night. Very happy band and a very happy Bride and Groom and guests.

Tonight's wedding reception is best described by the pictures I took (below), which really set the scene and atmosphere of the night - despite some initial torrential rain and exciting thunder storms, once subsided, the night was peaceful and warm.

We were always very well looked after by the amazing caterers too, so many thanks for that! It was a treat to not only get a large dinner, but also a selection of two deserts... wowsers! I couldn't fit into my dress afterwards but who cares. ;-)

Thanks very much Hannah and Stuart for a great gig - I'm so glad you both had a wonderful wedding day and night too!

All best wishes
