Rain on your wedding day will always mean you have the best stories to tell, and a collection of very memorable moments of your day. I love today’s real wedding story, which tells the tale of one of our favourite wedding bands, booked to play two sets on an English summer’s day for an outdoor wedding. It’s about near-disaster, sheer professionalism, and that famous ‘the show must go on’ attitude… Grab a cuppa and enjoy the ride! Oh, and do spare a thought for your musicians (and their gear) if you’re having an outdoor ceremony!

Real wedding at Cadhay House by Kristian Leven Photography (9)

Teetering on the brink of disaster. That’s not a phrase that anyone wants to hear, especially when it’s being used to describe one of the most important days of your life. As a wedding band we are hired for our professionalism and being able to deliver high-quality entertainment to really make your wedding reception a night to remember. But what if something disastrous happens? What if that is then followed by something else equally as catastrophic? Twice. All at the same wedding. How could it seem that the whole day was plummeting into the abyss of doom?
