Jen and Adam’s Wedding

The Riding School, Calke Abbey. Derbyshire – 9th September, 2023

It was a hot one and it was a fun one! The setting was a stunning National Trust property – Calke Abbey in their The Riding School, which is an amazing, rustic barn venue.

I joined Jen and Adam for their Drinks Reception and Wedding Breakfast, where I both sang and hosted.

Now the hot reference – it was the hottest day of the year, heading up towards the mid 30s; and considering the heat, I think we all did very well to party as much as we did during the daytime!

After their drinks outside in the courtyard, we moved through to sit down. I announced Jen and Adam in to rapturous applause and cheers whilst I played their entrance song of choice: Paradise by George Ezra. I then followed with singing sets between their courses, culminating in a very raucous and slightly sweaty final set, which saw most of the guests standing on their chairs bellowing out, Sweet Caroline, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You and Country Roads!!

We booked James to provide the daytime singing and entertainment throughout our wedding breakfast at Calke Abbey this weekend. And James did not disappoint!

From providing an ambient and relaxed atmosphere during canopies after the ceremony, through to getting all guests singing, dancing and on their chairs during the wedding breakfast, James was outstanding throughout!

So many guests commented on how great he was - it was a privilege to have him share our day with us!

Would absolutely recommend! Thank you James!
