Caverswall Castle Wedding, Gareth & Sarah - 22nd May 2009. Pictures to follow...

I was booked to be Gareth and Sarah's wedding singer & DJ back in April last year. They opted for the Standard Package giving them 3 x 30 minutes of singing and with DJ sets in between.

Their reception was at the fantastic Caverswall Castle in Stoke on Trent. It was my second time at the castle, being there only a couple of months earlier where I entertained at Stoke City captain Andy Griffin's surpise 30th celebrations! A great venue for me as it's only a 30 minute drive from The Wedding Singer HQ in Stafford.

Evening receptions at the venue take place in the castle dungeons. Far from being an oppressive place of torture, the dungeons are quite accomodating - windows, hot and cold running water, a fully fitted kitchen and a bar serving a selection of beers, fine wines and spirits!

The venue staff were accomodating and friendly, as they were back in March and we unloaded and set-up in the dungeon.

Set-up space was fairly limited, as the dancing area of the dungeon(!) is quite small. Our set-up is perfect for smaller spaces as it can be easily adapted for most areas. It is also ideal if your venue has noise restrictions of any sort, as they do at Caverswall Castle which is situated fairly close to a residential area.

Gareth & Sarah picked a fantastic and rarely known song, 'Moonlight Kiss' by Bap Kennedy as their first dance. I then got the rest of guests involved on the dance floor with a non-stop mix of my live singing and DJ sets.

Gareth & Sarah have e-mailed me some fantastic feedback today:

Hi James,

What with the rollercoaster that was the big day, I never had a chance
to say goodnight to you on Friday, nor to say a big thank you for such
a great service.

The entire evening's entertainment was flawless, and your live
performances were brilliant and memorable. Everybody we managed to
speak to was as impressed with you as we were. We're really glad that
we found you and will have no hesitation in passing your name on to
friends and family in the future.

Once again, a great big thanks for everything,

Gareth & Sarah Reynolds

P.S. We'll have our photographs in a couple of weeks. Just let me know
if you want me to email you some snaps from the evening for your own
use - no problem.

So, all the very best to Gareth & Sarah - I wish them every happiness!

I will add some pictures from the day as soon as I have them through - their photographer took a couple of shots VERY close to my face as I was singing. We'll have to see how they turn out - they may not pass my stringent vetting process!!
