Back in early 2022 we were invited to provide music as a backdrop to a Wedding Open Day at the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Whilst we don’t do many open days or fairs, it was here that we first met Sunita and Steve. They really enjoyed the music we were playing as they were being shown around the venue and so decided to book us for their wedding.
Roll forward 18 months or so and here we are back at the fabulous Majestic Hotel in the city of Harrogate and setting up for Sunita’s wedding.
Starting in the Drawing room we set up to one side of the main ceremony area which gave us a great view as the Bride and Bridesmaid’s entered through the double doors.
All of Me – John Legend
Can’t Help Falling in Love – Canon in D
Married Life from UP
Thousand Years – Christina Perri
I Giorni – Ludovico Einaudi
Halo – Beyonce
I Get to Love You – Ruelle
Yellow – Coldplay
One Day Like This – Elbow
The Drinks reception
After the ceremony we moved seamlessly into the Regency Room where the drinks reception was being held. The venue were great at helping us find a suitable space to play and clearing things as necessary for which we are always grateful.
Moving around during the course of someone’s wedding is always a challenge. However we do our best to be as seamless as possible just working away behind the scenes to ensure the serenity and grandeur of your wedding day is not interrupted by us carrying things around!
Some of the music we included in the drinks reception was:
A Sky Full of Stars – Coldplay
Africa – Toto
All You Need is Love – The Beatles
Beneath Your Beautiful – Labrinth
Dancing in the Moonlight – Toploader
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Paradise – Coldplay
Your Song – Elton John
Hoppipolla – Sigur Ross
The Wedding Breakfast
Another straightforward move was into the room for the wedding breakfast where we set up in the rear corner. We had been asked to play the following songs during the course of the meal.
Can’t Take My Eyes off You- Frankie Valli
Dreams – The Cranberries
Everglow – Coldplay
Everything – Michael Buble
Love Story – Taylor Swift
Make You Feel My Love – Adele
Photograph – Ed Sheeran
Together in Electric Dreams – Human League
Wildest Dreams – Taylor Swift
You’re the Reason – Callum Scott
Tale as Old as Time – Beauty and the Beast
L-O-V-E – Nat King Cole
This will be an Everlasting Love – Natalie Cole
Come What May – Moulin Rouge
This was a great wedding and it was lovely to be back in the stylish surroundings of the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate. Sadly we didn’t get a chance to get a picture or have a chat to Sunita and Steve as they were busy with their photographer. Nevertheless, they are a lovely couple and we wish them all the best for their married future together.
