Orton Hall Wedding, Cambridgeshire, February 11th 2016
NWedding Band Peterborough Cambridgeshire
Swinging through the stylish setting of Orton Hall for a winter wedding.
For Diane and John, both getting married for the second time, their commitment to each other was going to be all about sophistication, style, and enjoyable elegance. As Diane explains;
“For both of us, our first wedding experiences hadn't quite been what we would have chosen. My mother and aunts very much ended up taking over my first wedding – I was barely twenty at the time – and it was more about what they wanted then who I was, or what my husband and I wanted to express; it's not really surprising that that particular marriage didn't make it all the way. For John, coming to a second marriage after being widowed, this was a chance to celebrate at a point where there was the money to make the day something special, which he very much regrets not being the case with his first marriage.”
Diane and John chose our Modern Swing Band, with music from classics such as Sinatra and the Rat Pack, as well as modern mentionables like Jamie Cullum and Ed Sheeran all coming together in a sound that seemed to have been created for this stunning venue, which seemed to echo with history and elegance. With a lively dinner dance having been chosen to celebrate John and Diane's commitment to each other, we had the perfect venue, a fantastic couple, and the chance to showcase the full potential of our swing band, and show just how contemporary classic sounds can be when played right.
