Ciara & Connor’s Wedding
We were back in the beautiful Ballyliffin Lodge and Spa in County Donegal on Saturday night. Thanks to Ciara and Connor for inviting us along to play a few tunes at their big day! It’s a long drive across some of Donegal’s less appealing road to get to the venue! lol However, it always looks great, and the service is top notch. The fact that it’s on the stunning Donegal North Coast is just an added bonus! 🙂
So, this blog title was easy to pick! It was our first wedding of the year, and yes, we were happy to be back after three weeks off! It’s a bit weird after such a long break, it feels like six months since we last played! lol It took us a few songs to relax back into things, but once we got half an hour or so it felt like we’d never been away!
Ciara and Connor had picked Van Morrison’s ‘Into the Mystic’ for their first dance, which was a great choice. We invited the bridal party on half way through, and then quickly sped things up after that. It took us a while to suss the crowd out, but thankfully not too long! We had a good few dancers from the start, just not enough to fill the massive dance floor in the Lodge! However, as the night went on and the drink kicked in, the floor filled and the place was buzzing right until we finished at 1:30! 🙂
Thanks again to Ciara and Connor for booking us to play at their wedding. It was great to meet them both, and a brilliant way to start off yet another year of weddings! Finally, we’d like to sign off by wishing them well on their honeymoon travels. They’re going to Orlando in Floria, which should be amazing. Ciara worked in Disney World for a year, so they’re probably going to get a bit of extra special treatment – have a great time guys!
