On New Years Eve we travelled to Anglesey for the Church wedding between Gwen and Gareth before then moving on to Henblas Country Park for their wedding reception.

Ceremony and Drinks
The wedding ceremony took place at St Mary’s Church, Llanfairpwll in Anglesey. In order to be there in good time we left our home in the Cotswolds just after 6am as the ceremony was due to start at 12.30pm. This gave us plenty of time which is always wise with church weddings as parking and access can sometimes be a challenge. Here, however, it was all fairly straightforward and one of the very nice church wardens let us in so we could be ready and set up before anyone else arrive at the church.
Music for the Church Ceremony
- McFly- Heart never lies
- The Greatest Showman- Million Dreams
- James Arthur- Falling like the stars
- Ed Sheeran- Perfect
- Snow Patrol- Chasing Cars (before the bridal entrance)
How long will I love you – Thousand Years
- Westlife- Better Man
- Calum Scott- Biblical
Abba- I do I do I do blended with Dancing Queen
We then swiftly packed away and made our exit from the church as quickly as possible so we could get across to Henblas Country Park and set up again for the wedding reception. The venue were kind enough to give us access to park near the kitchen entrance at Henblas which meant we were just about set up and ready to play as the first guests started arriving from the church.
We really enjoyed being a part of this stunning wedding. Gwen and Gareth are a really lovely couple and we wish them every happiness as they embark on their married life together.
