I was thrilled to be asked to perform at Jenny and Phil’s wedding at The Alma Inn Colne, originally they had booked a duo for their special day but had unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances been let down, so Jenny put out a call on Face book and as it was very short notice she didn’t hold out much hope for cover at such short notice. I have played at The Alma Inn Colne on many occasions and have always had a great night as it’s a cracking place to get married and luckily for Jenny I just happened to be available to step in and give everyone a great night.
As soon as Jenny put out the call on Face book she was inundated with people telling her about me, which I found fascinating and flattering, maybe it was just meant to be and as it turned out the evening turned out to be one heck of a party. I arrived early and was set up for 7:15pm, I had already arranged with Jenny & Phil prior to the day some entrance music, this is something I like to do now and then and they were quick to go for the idea, the best man and ushers first entered the room to “Phil the Power Taylor’s” entrance music followed by the bridesmaids and hens who entered the room to “where them girls at” by David Guetta, the crowd were cheering for the entrance of the bride and groom who entered the room to Florence and the machines “You got the love”, as soon as the bride and groom entered the room you could just feel the anticipation in the air for the first dance song, which on this occasion was Emili Sande’s “Beneath Your Beautiful”.
The night went on from there and turned into a fantastic night enjoyed by all, it’s always a pleasure for me being part of someone’s special day and from a professional point of view performing at a venue like The Alma Inn Colne which is one of my favorites. I’d just like to wish Jenny & Phil all the very best for the future and I hope you have a cracking time on your honeymoon.
