Ciara & Darren’s Wedding

We were back in our favourite Donegal wedding venue last night: the stunning An Grianan Hotel!  Thanks to Ciara and Darren for inviting us along to help them celebrate their big day.  They had invited a capacity crowd, but as usual the An Grianan staff had the place dressed to perfection, and the circular function room looked as spectacular as ever!

What is this cute Kangaroo doing up above you ask?!  Simple, Ciara and Darren live in Australia, so we thought that would sort our blog title and get us a cute pic too!

We kicked things off a bit different last night, as we had a guest singer to sing Ciara and Darren’s first dance song!  Darren’s sister Orla sang a fantastic version of Brett Young’s In Case You Didn’t Know.  She was a bit nervous, but shouldn’t have been, as she sounded fantastic! 🙂

After that we kicked off things with our version of Paradise at Ciara’s request, which filled the floor! (good call Ciara!)  The floor stayed full for a few songs, and then the bar and smoking area called a bit too loud for our liking!  It took a few songs with a half empty dance floor before we figured out how to get them back.  We decided to play a few cheesy classics, and Proud Mary worked it’s usual magic and filled the floor!  That was job done, and the floor stayed that way until our last song before the buffet.  We handed the reigns over to the brilliant DJ Gerard Dillon, who has the best sound system that we’ve ever seen for a DJ!  He had the floor full when we left, and is a super nice guy: so all was good!

Thanks again to Ciara and Darren for booking us to play at their wedding.  It was great to meet them both, and nice to hear from Ciara how much they enjoyed our set!  As mentioned they’re living in Australia: so as far as we’re aware, they’re honeymooning over here with family and friends, and then heading back down under.  Safe travels guys!
