// GIG REVIEW - CHERYL & KEVAN, RIDGEMONT HOUSE - 19TH SEPTEMBER 2009 //

I was wedding singer for Cheryl & Kevan Seddon a couple of weeks ago at the fantastic Ridgemont House in Horwich, Lancashire.


They sat down for a late Buffet Wedding Breakfast at 6, so they were able to book the Standard Package and I was happy to shift my 7pm - 1am timings forwards and be set-up and ready for 6pm and finish music at Midnight. After some short speeches I played a pre-recorded selection of Jazz, Swing and Love Songs as guests dined.

I officiated Cheryl & Kevan's cake cutting and 8.30 and then they did their first dance immediately afterwards. I sang Take That's Greatest Day, for which Cheryl & Kevan had learnt a specially choreographed dance routine! 'Greatest Day' was not previously a part of my repertoire so I learnt the song especially for them.


After the first dance I sang my first singing set, getting everyone involved on the dance floor. The dancing continued as I DJ-ed and sang my second and third sets - I think we had everyone up on the dance floor at some point during the evening!

Towards the end of the evening there was a surprise in store for everyone. Cheryl had secretly organised a pair of Naked Balloon Dancers to entertain everyone. Even Kevan was unaware and looked as surprised as everyone else as the naked dancers jumped on to the dance floor!



Cheryl & Kevan have sent me the following testimonial from the day:

A big thanks to you James for helping make our wedding day so special, all our guests loved you and commented how good you were. You sang your heart out all night and did a wonderful 'Take That - Greatest Day' for our first dance. All our guests were up dancing all night and the bubbles look fantastic on our photos (very romantic ones of our first dance!)

I hope we didn't shock you too much with our surprise Streaking Balloon Dancers, they certainly ended the night with a bang!!

Thank you with lots of love from Mr & Mrs Seddon xx

So, best wishes to the new Mr & Mrs Seddon and I hope to return to Ridgemont House again soon!
