As weddings go this was another fabulous one and was also our first visit to the delightful Homme House in Herefordshire. Today we were booked to provide music just for the drinks reception which followed a service in the nearby church.
Emily and James
Homme House, Much Marcle, Herefordshire
Saturday 15 October 2022
As we arrived, Emily was just getting ready to leave for the church. This is not a view we see very often as we are usually playing for the ceremony or not in a position to see the bride before she sets off!
Once the bride and her bridesmaids had all departed for the church we had around an hour in order to get our instruments into the venue and be ready to set up for the start of the drinks reception. With parking no further away than the point the above photographs were taken this was no problem at all and in fact left us with plenty of time to relax and have a look around the venue.
There were some lovely touches at Emily and James’ wedding and we particularly liked the clocks hanging by each section of the day.
Music for the Wedding Drinks Reception
We were directed to set up at the back of the main entrance hall and found ourselves by the wedding cake and beautifully framed by the archway.
Emily and James had been very specific about the music they wanted for their drinks reception and provided us with a list of some lovely choices.
- Shallow (A star is born)
- A Thousand Years (Piano Guys)
- Always remember us (Lady Gaga)
- Beautiful Girl – Sean Kingston

We were scheduled to play for around 2 hours and we did get through all their song choices, plus one or two extras thrown in at the request of their guests!
