This weekend saw me visit a venue that I always find fantastic for weddings, The Alma Inn Laneshawbridge is a place that really lends itself to a very special day. And this Wedding was no different.
It was my pleasure to be asked to perform for Steven & Louise on their special day, the party got off to an early start with 3 little angels on the dance floor requesting some early up to date dance tunes, a childrens set at the start of the evening sometimes gives the parents a little breather from a long afternoon.
Around 8pm I gathered all the guests into the main room and welcomed in the wedding party to the sounds of fun songs, we went straight into the first dance which on this occasion was Yellow by Coldplay, I sang the first dance and have to say really enjoyed it.
The night really kicked into gear later on when I played some classic 90’s dance tunes, it seems some of the wedding guests used to go to a place in Burnley many years ago called “Savannah’s”, which for Burnley folk is a place of legends and just happened to be one of my old haunts growing up so I knew just what to play to keep the dancefloor packed. Quite big at the moment are the songs from the Big Reunion so I played the old FIVE Megamix and some tunes from the show, I couldnt resist a little bit of Ant & Dec aswell which really brought out some slick dancemoves, well maybe not..haha
My final live singing set began with “Dont Look Back in Anger” which as usual had the dancefloor packed and the guests singing with me at the top of their voices and Steven & Louise hidden away right in the middle of them, singing along too.
I think the night as a whole was a complete success and Mr & Mrs Dole seemed thoroughly happy with the evening, and at the end of the day if the bride and groom are happy then so am I.
I would just like to wish Steven & Louise all the very best for the future and thank them for allowing me to be a part of their special day and to keep in touch!
