Huntsham Court Wedding
>>> Posted by Shelley - 12/05/2014
We were invited by the lovely Kate & Joe Constant to provide the entertainment for their wedding celebrations at the stunning Huntsham Court, Nr Tiverton. Huntsham Court homepage.
This beautiful and well appointed house is available for exclusive hire midweek and weekends at any time of year with 31 bedrooms allowing up to 74 guests with lots of lovely nooks and crannies to hide in.
We were welcomed warmly to the venue by the vivacious Deby, event organiser extraordinaire, who had everything in hand ready for the evening events to proceed in a co-ordinated manner.
It was a pleasure to work with the team at Huntsham, a special mention goes to Nick – the night watchman, who had his beady eye on every movement in the house and its vicinity. A very helpful chap who had many a story to tell.
Speaking of Beady Eye – Nick informed us that the venue was previously used by none other than Liam Gallagher himself. The video for his bands song 'shine a light' features the cellar, fire pit and the great hall where we had the pleasure to perform.
The bride & groom and many of their guests are keen dancers and so although we were playing the tunes – we were thoroughly entertained by some exceptional salsa dancing, shuffles and smooth moves!
Interweaving himself throughout the night was photographer Fernando Traqueno whos stunning images capture those wonderful fleeting moments from such a special day. I hear he is also quite the dancer himself!
All in all we had a splendid evening in a beautiful location with some wonderful people. It is always such a pleasure to be a part of such a special day. Congratulations Kate & Joe – may your future be filled with much happiness. Keep on dancing : )
