3 of our favourite venues this year

Wednesday 13th July 2016

This year we have already played some great gigs and have absolutely loved being the wedding band for so many lovely couples tying the knot. We've played at some truly awesome venues up and down the country from barns to marquees, hotels to tipis, so we feel pretty well versed in the amazing variety of wedding venues available. So, in our worldly wedding wisdom (ahem!) we decided to share 3 of our favorite venues with you.

In no particular order...

1. Stone Barn:

This venue tops the 'barn' genre of wedding locations. The main room is the old stone barn with high ceilings and a huge amount of floor space. This leads off into a large extension complete with kitchen (the pizzas were excellent) and bar. There is a certain simplicity to this venue that only adds to its class and warmth. The staff are really friendly and help make the venue a very pleasant place to be.

2. HMS Belfast :

HMS Belfast is by far the strangest venue we have played at or on. The wedding/ party room is situated in the company dining hall, right in the center of the ship. The main museum is kept open, thus allowing guests to explore the rest of the ship and get some photos with the creepy mannequins! After the sun goes down, above deck really is a sight to behold and the lights of central London bring a certain magic to the location.

3. Adrenaline Quarry :

And now for something completely different. This venue is for the adrenaline junkies out there. Fancy partying in a top of the range marquee in a disused quarry, next to a man made lake, surrounded by towering cliffs and hills? Well that's only the beginning because in order to get there you have to zip line 490m from the top of the cliffs! This was one of the most fun weddings we have played, with everyone ending up in the lake at the end of the night and plenty of crazy activities to fill the day.

No matter what your venue, though - we promise we'll give you a night filled with Indie Rock and Pop Covers that will get everyone on that dance floor from start to finish! So what are you waiting for?! Give us a ring and book us for your wedding - we can't wait to see where we'll play next!
