Formby Hall Wedding Pianist & Singer for Steve & Katy
19th Jun 2012
Steve and Katy got in touch last year regarding wedding entertainment for their Formby Hall wedding. They had seen me perform at their friends’ wedding at Thornton Manor in 2011.
For their own wedding, they wanted my white baby grand piano and vocals downstairs for the drinks reception. Then we were going to head upstairs to the Ambassador Suite for the wedding breakfast. I had set up a piano keyboard there beforehand.
As per usual, guests moved around the hotel during the drinks reception. Some went out to the terrace to enjoy the weather while others stayed inside.
But as soon as we moved upstairs, guest kicked off waving napkins for That’s Amore. The oldest singers ever gave us Hey Jude, Delilah, Imagine and more… Finally, we belted out Shine for the Take That hardcore who had been leading the choruses.
We had a plan for a karaoke set downstairs after speeches following its success at the Thornton Manor wedding. However, we hadn’t counted on a Formby Hall wedding record two and a quarter hours of speeches! So, no karaoke… As a result, the team wanted everyone back upstairs to begin the evening function in less than 15 minutes…
Every wedding is different and Steve and Katy absolutely did it their way. I had a great time with them and their party of fun guests. The characters in the room guaranteed the party atmosphere. I’m sure they all had a great night. All the best to the new Mr & Mrs Pellow! x
