Catriona & Paul’s Wedding

We played at our second wedding of the week last night, and were back in the beautiful Killyhevlin Hotel yet again!  Thanks to Catriona and Paul for inviting us along to help them and their guests dance the night away!  The Killy was looking great as usual, plus Greg and the staff had the room laid out and dressed to perfection for the capacity crowd!

So, what is ‘Real Juice’ we hear you say?!  Well, we couldn’t have told you that either until last night! lol  I have known Catriona’s Dad Declan for nearly 25 years, and Brendan has gotten to know him well since we started the band.  He’s told us numerous times that he makes really good Sloe Gin, but we’ve never had a chance to try any 🙁  So, Declan made us a bottle each for the wedding, and even made special labels for the bottles, and called the Sloe Gin ‘Real Juice’! (see the header pic)  Cheers Declan, that was such a lovely gift! 🙂

We started off things with a brilliant slow unplugged version of Shut Up and Dance by Anchor and Bell for Catriona and Paul’s first dance.  After that (as requested) we kicked things off with our normal fast version of Shut Up and Dance, which filled the massive dance floor! 🙂  The floor stayed like that for a few songs, and then we gradually lost our dancers.  It took us a few songs to suss them out, but we got them back and finished off with a few slow songs before the buffet.  We revved things back up during the disco with a few dance classics, then went back to a few old sing alongs to finish the night.  We couldn’t believe the size of the crowd on the floor when we hit the stage again at the end!  Amazing!

Thanks again to Catriona and Paul for booking us to play at their wedding.  It was great to meet them both and hear about how their day, and was also a wee bit extra special on account of knowing Declan so well! 🙂  We’ll sign off by wishing them well on their honeymoon.  They’ve picked a real bucket list destination, as they’re going to South Africa!  Wherever they go they’re going to be amazing wildlife and scenery – have a great time guys!
