1.4.17 Mr & Mrs Mystery at Hotel Cafe Royal

“Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be – Unknown” I feel like I need an escape at the moment, and this was the perfect opportunity.  In a weird way it felt like an 18 hour mini holiday, away from real life and people drama. Once again this was a trip with…

18.2.17 – Mr & Mrs Jones

“True love stands by each others side on good days, and stands even closer on bad days” It had been years since I played for a Wedding at Waterton Park Hotel.  So many years that I wasn’t sure that they would remember me haha.  As I pulled up, Pauline (the wedding coordinator) was walking back…

Diary of a Bride – Countdown:191 Days

It’s all becoming real! A little over 6 months to go and I am feeling a little anxious…*pauses*…that’s a lie, I am full on panicking!  Constantly in my mind is what hasn’t been booked yet, or what still needs to be done, which when I break it down, putting the little things aside like the…

Diary of a Bride…(week 3)

“A happy marriage is a long conversation that always seems too short.” (Andre Maurois) Wow, this week has been stressful.  I feel knackered now haha. In all honesty, this week I began to feel overwhelmed with the volume of things that are going on.  Im in the final year of my Business Management Degree, running…

“Behind every great musician is an untold story” (Alexandra Parker, 2015) What a night!!! Most definitely the best Safari night of the lot, and I am going to miss the Safari Nights so much! My day begin performing in the courtyard for an hour.  As I walked around the corner I could hear a beautiful…

8.8.15 – 1 Wedding, 1 Show and 1 hell of an embarrassing moment

I had a cheeky shopping trip on the morning *grits teeth*, I know, I just couldn’t help myself.  Chique in Doncaster just had their new stock delivered.  Needless to say, I left with 4 new dresses 😀 Rossington Hall welcomed me for a wedding before I flew across to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.  The weather…

12th July 2014 – Nicola McConville weds Steve Lomas + Ladies Night

I loved these two.  What a lovely couple.  The wedding was beautiful, perfect, faultless. 1st February 2013 they enquired about my services, and 3 days later they booked and paid.  They knew exactly what they wanted. Saturday was to be a long day.  I didn’t sleep well the night before, I woke every 30 minutes…

Wedding – Nicola & Andy Fry – 21st June 2014

I met Nicola & Andy 3 years ago at a Wedding Fair…I think it was Butterley Grange Mansion in Derbyshire.  It was a great wedding fair that one, all the girls got to go upstairs into the Versace suite and try on wedding dresses and have their photos taken, which I thought was amazing. They…

Do NOT eat the gems on the wedding cake. They are for decoration ONLY…

The Wedding of Adam & Joanne Schofield. The weather turned out to be perfect yesterday, just in time for Adam and Joanne’s wedding.  They weren’t getting married until 3pm, which is a pretty late wedding.  But is actually a perfect time, because your guests are eating at 5pm (usual time for dinner for most people),…

Rugby tackling a bride at todays Wedding at Oulton Hall, Leeds

Well today was a hell of a lot more interesting and exciting than yesterday!!! As most of you know, I like to arrive super early before a wedding is due to start.  If a bride gets married at 1pm, I’ll arrive at 12noon, at the latest.  For some reason, I wanted to set off even…
