It’s been an awfully busy summer (if being busy can be awful?!) here at Dream Day Music. The much-discussed hang-over from brides reluctant to marry in the 13th year of the millennium has seen an unprecedented amount of Thursday weddings during the 2014 season, as the most popular North West wedding venues struggled to fit everyone in. We’ve had several Thursday weddings to add to our usual host of Friday-Sunday nuptials, and we’ve loved every minute!
We’ve also been absorbed into Lancashire music promotions company, Soundsmiths Promotions Ltd, and have been able to launch some fantastic new offers and discounts as a result.
One Thursday, Back in Time
One Thursday wedding was our first visit into the wonderful boutique hotel that is Oddfellows in Chester, for the lavish Great Gatsby themed marriage of Chris and Jen. Our in-house wedding pianist Craig entertained a guest list of dashing tuxedo-ed gents and their partners in stunning cocktail dresses with a mixture of jazz and swing for the drinks reception, held in Oddfellows’ stylish bar and outdoor terrace areas. There was a memorable moment for all when keen rock ‘n’ roll dancer James requested “something uptempo and Latin”, Craig grooving Mas Que Nada as James grabbed wife Nia and the couple dazzled onlookers with an impromptu routine.
Moments like this are a great reminder that your wedding music is as much about your guests as it is about you; choose music that they’ll love and there’ll be some magical memories made!
Chris got in touch on Monday to say:
Craig played piano for our wedding reception this summer. I cannot thank him enough for what he did for us. As well as a fantastic musician, he’s an all round top bloke to work with too! The choice and variety of music for the whole day was so well suited. Our guests are to this day still mentioning him and his music. Being a professional musician myself I knew from the second I booked him he’d do a sterling job. Cannot recommend Craig highly enough. If you have a wedding, party, special occasion BOOK Craig.. he’ll be the talk of your event!
Chris and Jen are well regarded in the world of fashion magazines and blogging, and as you’d expect, no expense was spared on photography. A blog by their photographer James Farley contains some of their pictures, which must be seen to be believed! They’re some of the best wedding photos we’ve seen, and we see a lot!
Their evening reception entertainment was performed by fantastic, energetic Merseyside folk-rock band Jessicas Ghost, with the groom even stepping up to play a few numbers on violin too!
