As the British Summer starts to warm up we found ourselves heading back once again to Kent. Today it was the turn of Charlotte and James who were getting married at the delightful Chiddingstone Castle near Edenbridge.

Chiddingstone Castle, Kent

Arriving in good time (we even had time to visit Oxted on the way where Anne-Marie found another dress suitable for weddings for the bargain price of £2! Watch this space for the next time she wears a pink dress….
The Wedding Ceremony
Our first job of the day was to provide music for the beautiful outdoor ceremony which took place in the Victorian Orangery.
Originally built in Victorian times; a stunning modern glass roof structure was added in 2008, complementing the striking stonework and bringing architectural merit.
Throughout the summer season the Orangery at Chiddingstone Castle is one of the most unique venues in the Kent for a civil ceremony.
Today we were out with our beautiful black gloss piano shell which suited the orangery very well indeed! It could almost have been a destination wedding in Tuscany particularly with the glorious sunshine.
Bridal Entrance – Yellow by Coldplay
Signing of the Register – You Raise me Up and The One
Exit – Here Comes the Sun
Wedding Drinks Reception
Following the ceremony we relocated a short distance back to the Castle for the Drinks Reception. Here we had been given a gazebo to shade us from the sunshine which on a day like today was extremely welcome!
As always we continued to play for the duration of the drinks reception, finishing around 4.30pm when the guests were called into the Castle for dinner and speeches.
