Lindsey & Wayne’s Wedding

We were on the road again last night for our first Sunday wedding of the year!  It also was our last wedding of the year too!  We’re back out again in The Royal Hotel in Cookstown for their end of year party, but as it was our last wedding, we thought we’d go for a predictable title for a change…

Nicola & Declan’s Wedding

Our never ending series of weird blog titles continue!  This one was inspired by last night’s bridal party.  We quite often call the bridal party half way through the first dance, as more and more couples prefer that nowadays.  Normally they come to the floor and the bridesmaids dance with the guys in the bridal party.  However, last night they all came on and formed a circle with Nicola and Declan (the bride and groom), and everybody danced with their arms around each others shoulders!  Maybe we’re getting soppy in our old age, but it was really lovely to watch…

Orlagh & Kevin’s Wedding

There’s a bit of a rally theme for this post!  We were chatting to Orlagh’s stepdad Raymond when we arrived, and he was full of the craic!  Amongst the banter, he was telling us that he was a big rally fan, and that he actually used to be a navigator!  Cheers Raymond, that sorted our typically unusual blog title…

Emma & Martin’s Wedding

Happy Easter everyone!  We survived Sunday’s chocolate overload, and were back on the road again yesterday evening.  Emma and Martin had invited us down to the beautiful Nuremore Hotel in Carrickmacross to play at their wedding reception.  The hotel has stunning grounds: they couldn’t have picked a better day to take advantage of them, as the weather was fantastic…

Nicole & Matthew’s Wedding

We were back on the road again last night after a week off!  Thanks to Nicole and Matthew for inviting us along to the Four Seasons Hotel in Monaghan to play a few tunes at their wedding reception.  The hotel were running pretty much on schedule, and had the stage cleared in a flash for us to setup!  We can never figure out why some venues clear the dance floor first, and then the stage area – no worries with the Four Seasons though…)

Jessica & Martin’s Wedding

Friday the 13th and we were back in Monaghan town!  Is that good or bad we hear you say, well thankfully for us it was all good! :)  We were playing at Jessica and Martin’s wedding reception in the Hillgrove Hotel, so thanks to them both for inviting us along!  The Hillgrove staff weren’t messing about, as they were running bang on time, and just starting to clear the room when we arrived!  So, it was nice to be able to get into the room straight away…

Oonagh & Stephen’s Wedding

We finished our week in Monaghan town on Saturday night, as we were playing at Oonagh and Stephen’s wedding in the Four Seasons Hotel. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple to end the week with, so thanks to both of them for booking us play a few tunes at their big day. The Four Seasons’ staff were on the ball, as we only had to wait about 15 minutes before we could get setup, which was great…

Tina & Damien’s Wedding

We played our second of this week’s weddings in the beautiful Killyhevlin Lakeside Hotel in Enniskillen last night. Thanks to Tina and Damien for inviting us along. The Killy is one of the few venues with a curtained off stage, so we were able to setup while the meal and speeches were finishing. This obviously helps speed things up if proceedings are running late. However, the hotel had everything running bang on time anyway, as the room was turned round ahead of schedule…

We finished the week at Meka and Tony’s wedding in the Four Seasons Hotel Monaghan on Saturday night – thanks to both of them for inviting us along. We were able to have a nice relaxed load-in when we arrived, as the guests were just getting their desserts. After that the staff weren’t long clearing the stage for us…

Angela & Gerard’s Wedding

We made our debut last night in the Nuremore Hotel in Carrickmacross at Angela and Gerard’s wedding – thanks to both of them for inviting us along to play a few songs. It was our first time there, but we couldn’t have been made feel more welcome as Ann (the duty manager) was offering us tea, coffee, plus dinner and dessert as the wedding was running slightly behind schedule! It’s a beautiful venue, and has stunning grounds – plus there’s a fantastic view of their lake from the function room – well worth checking out if you’re looking for a wedding venue in the Monaghan area…

Catherine & Cathal’s Wedding

We finished our week in the Four Seasons Hotel, Monaghan at Catherine and Cathal’s wedding on Saturday night – thanks to both of them for inviting us along. They had just finished their main course when we arrived, so we had a short wait to chill out before we started setting up. It was all good though, as Catherine and Cathal had booked a magician to entertain everyone after the meal – so we didn’t have to think too long for a title for this blog! We watched him merge two cards that Catherine and Cathal had separately signed into one, and we have no idea how he done it…

Leona & Senan’s Wedding

We had our first Sunday wedding in a while in the beautiful Castle Leslie in Glaslough, County Monaghan last night – thanks to Leona and Senan for inviting us along. We’ve had numerous enquiries for this place over the years, but were either already booked, or (if we were free) obviously not what the particular couples were looking for! Anyway, it was great to finally to get to play in the place, and it is a stunning venue. Very rustic, full of character, and extremely authentic – there’s not many castles of this size that haven’t had their interior tweaked to suit modern requirements. This one hasn’t, as we were playing in an large living room! (they also have an adjoining marquee for larger crowds) If castles are your thing, then you definitely check this place out…

Grace & Brian’s Wedding

We were back in the Four Seasons Hotel in Monaghan last night for our second wedding of the week. Thanks to Grace and Brian for inviting us along, it was great to be part of their wedding plans. The room was the ideal size, as they had invited a big crowd, and it was near enough full – it always helps the atmosphere when the room suits the size of the crowd…

We finished the week off in the Four Seasons Hotel in Monaghan on Saturday night – thanks to Patricia and Denis for inviting us along. We knew we hadn’t been there in quite a while, but when we checked the diary it’s actually been five years since we last played there! It’ll not be that long until we’re back though, as we’re playing there again at a wedding in December…
