My Blog


This is my Blog for music related things that happen to me.  Useful articles posted by other people will be linked from the Music Info page.

I will only post on here when I feel that there is something of interest to say, rather than trying to do something everyday.

This was my first wedding on the Isle of Wight and also the first wedding at this venue since its new owners took over. What a lovely place to have your wedding celebrations at. The attention to detail is spot on with some great ideas including garden games to keep the children, both large and small entertained. Watching games of giant Jenga and connect four being played during the drinks reception was quite entertaining.

I played for both the drinks reception and the wedding breakfast including special requests for ‘Chunky’ by Bruno Mars requested by the bride and groom and the classic ‘ Careless Whisper’ from a guest.

The weather behaved itself, allowing everyone to enjoy their beautiful surroundings, and having watched the photographs being taken, I would think there where some great memories made yesterday.

The barn looked an excellent place for the evening party, and the band sounded great. So I imagine a good night was had by all.

Thank you Robin and Caroline for asking me to be part of your big day, and may I wish you all the happiness for your future together.

Now to start preparing for my next Island wedding in 2 weeks time.

Dave.

Yesterday was the first day this year that was warm enough to have part of a wedding outside.

This was Richard and Emily’s wedding reception at the Old Stable at Swithland in Leicestershire.  What a lovely place for a gathering of friends and family to wish the happy couple all the best for the future.

Thank you for asking me to be part of your special day Richard and Emily.

 

Best wishes

Friday was spent at the Gouldings centre in Freshwater on the Isle of Wight. 

The clients there certainly enjoy a good sing along and make the contestants on Strictly come dancing look like amateurs .

The feed back was great and I hope to see you all soon.

Ps. The coconut cake was delicious. 👍

What do you do if your school that you normally teach at on a Friday, emails you and say it’s a ‘snow day’?

Well, after 5 seconds of thinking, you decide to bring your weekend plans forward.

After a fairly sedate drive to Southampton, we boarded the ferry for East Cowes 9 hours earlier than planned. Yehaa.

we are now sitting in our hotel lounge overlooking Sandown beach and enjoying a cuppa.

Tomorrow I am entertaining the residents of Victoria House in Ryde, and Sunday, I am exhibiting at the Ventnor Botanical gardens Wedding Fayre.

so an extra few hours enjoying our home from home is greatly appreciated.
