A Beautiful Autumn Wedding

I think that may well be me done for 2020 now. Looks like more restrictions are in place on weddings from today. Yesterday I had another short trip up to the beautiful Brickhouse Vineyard. This time to play for Helen and Tom. A stunning day in the sunshine playing my violin whilst people mingle and chatter with a glass of bubbly. What else could you want? I played a new arrangement that I have just done of L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole which went down really well. Congratulations to Helen and Tom on a glorious wedding. More time to practice now over the winter and write arrangements! Cheers.

Elopement Wedding at Brickhouse Vineyard Mamhead.

To complete a busy week I played at a very intimate wedding at the very beautiful Brickhouse Vineyard followed by the cozy ThefollydevonCongratulations to Milo and Krisna on a romantic occasion. I was asked to write an arrangement of a popular Malaysian folk song for Krisnas entrance which sounded so nice on the violin. Milo entered to 'Theme from a summer place'. It was nice to play a few jazz standards as well today like 'At Last' by Etta James and 'Fly me to the moon'. I even had some lunch as well which was amazing! There is something very romantic about playing at a wedding where the only guests present are the bride and the groom - nobody else! #weddingviolinist #elopementweddingviolinist

Budleigh Salterton Wedding.

I had a lovely afternoon with the Exe Valley String trio last Thursday. We played for the ceremony and drinks reception in Budleigh Salterton in the beautiful sunshine overlooking the sea. Congratulations to Laura and Adam on a beautiful wedding in stunning surroundings.  We played Canon in D for the brides entrance and the drinks reception started with Marry You by Bruno Mars.  It was so nice to play live music with human beings!
