Today was our second trip to Whitley Hall in as many months. We were last there in April playing for the wedding of Caroline and Nigel. This always makes it slightly easier if we know the venue we are going into as we can gauge how long it will take to set up and where we might be playing. Today, once again, was another outdoor wedding and we were well prepared.
Chloe and Jamie
Whitley Hall, Sheffield, South Yorkshire
13 June 2022
Setting up at the back of the ceremony area this is another venue where we can provide music for the wedding ceremony and the drinks reception from a single location.
We did have a slight crisis whilst setting up when it transpired we had somehow misplaced Anne-Marie’s music stand (iPad holder). It wasn’t a particular problem, as we have a backup of everything in the car (we even carry a spare cello!) but on this occasion it was just as easy to use a nearby table to perch the iPad on.
Ceremony and Drinks Reception
Despite a few clouds, we carried on playing outside throughout the wedding ceremony and the short drinks reception which followed.
All too soon our participation at Chloe and Jamie’s wedding was over – we really enjoy playing at Whitley Hall in Sheffield. If you are local to the area it’s also a lovely venue to consider. JAM Duo would also love to be considered as your wedding musicians – whether that’s at Whitley Hall, somewhere else in Yorkshire or indeed anywhere in the UK!
