Moddershall Oaks Country Spa Retreat Wedding
Another wonderful wedding at the Moddershall Oaks Country Spa Retreat, Oaks Cottage, Moddershall Oaks, Stone.
The new Mr & Mrs Gosling saw me perform at the National Wedding Show in Manchester in 2015 and booked me there. Being musical themselves, I feel they wanted someone who they thought could live up to their expectations. I certainly hope I did that, as whenever I perform at weddings where the bride or groom or guests are musical, it adds a little (good) pressure.
They did things slightly differently and had their wedding mainly outside, offering games and entertainment (me) for people to listen to whilst having drinks after the wedding ceremony.
I set up the piano (see pic) before the ceremony so that it was ready to go for my performance, and once the ceremony was over I started to sing on the piano during the drinks. Unfortunately it was quite cold, but this didn’t stop people enjoying the music and games and the wonderful view of the lake.
Tom & Cat wanted to have their first dance at about 5pm ish before the evening meal. This was performed outside under the custom built oak gazebo on the edge of the lake where the piano was set up. The song was ‘Someone To Fall Back On’ by Jason Robert Brown taken from the musical Wearing Someone Else’s Clothes
I absolutely LOVED singing this song! It was quite a different song for me to sing, ‘very musical theatre’ as they say, but I think I suited this style and it’s nice to sing different styles of music. Again the pressure was on a bit but I hope they enjoyed me singing this.
The evening celebrations went ahead as planned and I sung again at around 9pm and enjoyed seeing many guests enjoy a dance.
This was a lovely wedding with great people, and I had to remember it was a Thursday!!
