On a rainy, windy night we made our way to the amazing Rivervale Barn in Yately for the wedding of Carly and Drystan. What a gorgeous couple! We set up in the main hallway of the barn and it was the perfect setting for a Christmassy wedding. When the nights close in, everything feels so intimate and festive and being the night before Christmas eve, their wedding had a definite Christmas-feel!
Carly and I went to infant, junior and senior school together plus we both studied at Southampton University so it was lovely to see her in her beautiful dress and play for her guests! She even showed me a very old picture of us singing in the school choir which I haven't seen in a VERY long time!!!
Favourite bits were playing Blurred Lines for Carly's father (he likes the beat!). It's a new edition to the set and Jon (usually on guitar) gets to exercise his cowbell skills so it keeps us entertained! We also played the Mariah classic (my favourite song to sing by far!) All I Want For Christmas is You especially for Carly. Drystan is a soldier and serving in Afghanistan took him far away from Carly and she told us that when she hears that song, she thought about how grateful she was that he was home for Christmas. We were happy to oblige of course.
So here's a belated Christmas post from Groovestone!
Love Kate xxxxx
