Louise & Barry’s Wedding
After the previous weekend off, we were back in wedding mode on Saturday night at Louse and Barry’s wedding in the Magherabuoy House Hotel in Portrush. Thanks to both of them inviting us along to play a few tunes, and join in the celebrations. Vanessa (the duty manager) was on the ball, and had everything running ahead of schedule! So, the stage area was clear when we arrived, and we were able to setup straight away! 🙂 It was great to meet her, and she couldn’t have made us feel anymore welcome!
We always like to go for unusual blog titles, and we can thank Louise and Barry for the inspiration for this one! They had picked Eric Church’s fantastic ‘Drink in my hand’ for their bridal party dance. What a brilliant song, and it went down great as loads of people joined the bridal party on the dance floor!
Before Eric Church was played, Louise and Barry had picked Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Tougher than the rest’ as their first dance, which is a great tune! We had a slight mishap during the first dance though! The MacBook that we use to play our songs on decided to take a brief huff during the first song! Thankfully it didn’t take long to get that sorted, and Louise and Barry were very understanding about the brief stop. We started playing after the Eric Church song, and thankfully had a good amount of dancers on the floor. The crowd were great craic, and even though there was the odd quiet song, the dance floor was generally buzzing most of the night!
Thanks again to Louise and Barry for booking us to play at their wedding. It was great to meet both of them, and hear all about their honeymoon plans. They have an amazing honeymoon planned, as they’re going to Iceland first of all. After that, they’re finishing things off with a bit of sun in Tenerife! Sounds fantastic – have a great time guys!
