This was our second visit to Polhawn Fort down in Cornwall, and our first trip into Cornwall for a while. With its own private beach accessible from the venue via a few steps, Polhawn is a delightful coastal wedding venue in Cornwall and it was our absolute pleasure to return there for another wedding.

The Wedding

Jade and Aaron
Polhawn Fort, Cornwall
15 September 2022

Our brief today was to provide music for the ceremony and drinks reception both of which were held outdoors. Last time we played at Polhawn Fort the skies opened half way through the drinks reception and we had to quickly move indoors. Today the weather held and so we stayed outside for the duration.

Music for the Wedding

Pre Ceremony
Fields of gold
Can’t help falling in love
A thousand years
All of me
Beneath your beautiful

Bridal Entrance
Blend of Lover and Wildest Dreams

Signing of the Register
Time after Time
You’re Still the One

Couple Exit
You’ve Got the Love

Acoustic Instruments at Polhawn Fort

In line with the rules at Polhawn Fort today we were using our beautiful acoustic Cello. It’s actually been a while since this cello has been to a wedding as generally Anne-Marie tends to play the electric cello at weddings. Primarily this is to ensure we can be heard and it also balances beautifully with our Nord Stage Piano and we can set the volume to suit any environment inside or outside.

However the rules at Polhawn Fort are that musicians must be acoustic only. Luckily we believe in being prepared for all eventualities

Wedding Drinks Reception

Moving slightly we carried on playing outside for the wedding drinks reception. Jules was particularly pleased with the regular supply of canapés which were arriving at the piano!

We had been given a list of songs by Jade to play at this point in the day which included:

Somebody to love
Fix you
Your song
Can you feel the love tonight
Better together
Mr bright side
Beautiful girls
Brown eyed girl
Dancing in the moonlight
Shape of you

We really enjoyed playing for Jade and Aaron’s wedding at Polhawn Fort and we are already looking forward to another trip to Cornwall to play for more weddings here and at some of the other beautiful costal venues on the Cornish coast.
