We played at a wedding in a beautiful rural, magical setting, at Huntstile Organic Farm near Bridgewater, Somerset, on Saturday 5th October 2019 .
We were welcomed into the rustic farm and into the farmhouse where the wedding was taking place. The lounge we were playing in was lit with beautiful fairy lights which illuminated the cosy winter’s night setting perfectly. Candles lit the room and provided the perfect setting for our first song which we performed for the couple’s first dance which was At Last by Etta James. Our second song was a surprise for the Bride’s two sons which she dedicated to them. We performed You Raise Me Up and there wasn’t dry eye in the house as Mandy’s two sons danced with her, hugging, throughout the entire song. The atmosphere then burst into an energetic frenzy as we played Lost in Music by Chic which has an exciting military drum-solo in the middle! Guests danced wildly to our versions of songs by Chic, Sister Sledge, Prince, Blondie, Rihanna, Calvin Harris, Sia, Abba etc. We also took requests from guests.
We love playing at weddings and we can now add Huntstile Organic Farm to our very long list of wedding gigs in South West England, the Midlands, Somerset and Gloucestershire.
In the band for this amazing wedding were Suzy J on lead vocals, Wendy Abrahams on lead and backing vocals, Paul Hardy on keyboards, Martyn Alsop on drums and lead vocals, Mark Butler on bass guitar, Dave Miles on lead guitar and lead vocals and Freddie Whittle-Martin on saxophone.
Weddings are such fabulous events to play. We loved playing at Mandy & Stephen’s wedding. Contact us to find out more about booking Firefly band to perform at your wedding.
