On a run of acoustic duo events throughout the south of the UK we were lucky to enough to be invited to play as Alyssa & Liam’s Cogges manor wedding band, We don’t tend to travel too far outside of the north-west on many occasions these days but when we do we always find the people in the south are the nicest bunch of people!
A Cogges manor wedding band can look forward to a cool and quirky venue. Alyssa & Liam (mainly Alyssa) had HANDMADE all of the decorations for their wedding day, but let us tell you this wasn’t any ordinary DIY wedding they had GONE TO TOWN, the theme was Harry Potter and everywhere we looked we were amazed by to attention to detail, these included the herbology centre pieces, the Azkaban prison crate for their gorgeous dogs, Dobby dolls and candles hanging from the ceilings, we were transported back to our childhoods watching Harry Potter, this wedding gave Harry Potter world a run for its money!
Not only did Alyssa have an amazing vision for her wedding day she also chosen some pretty epic songs for us to perform as their acoustic duo, One in particular was under pressure by queen, which was instantly met with a HUGE yes from us, when asked if we could learn it! The plan was for the bridesmaids and groomsmen to walk down the aisle to the iconic queen baseline, as a joke – which went down so well with their friends and family.
See our acoustic version performed at Cogges Manor here:
We also performed their exit song, “Where You Lead” by Carole King, which was a huge hit with the couple and their guests.
Yes thats right the Gilmore girls theme song.
Soph has spent WAY too many hours watching Loreil and Rory Gilmore navigating their way through life as mother and daughter. Subsequently, There really was no rehearsal required on that one!
Alyssa opened up a whole can of worms asking us to play it. Soph was once again sucked in to the 6 seasons of Gilmore girls, and got nothing done for a good couple of weeks. Thanks Alyssa! 😉
Listen to our acoustic version of ‘where you lead’, performed at Cogges Manor, here:
The couple had booked our silver package, including live performances during the wedding ceremony, drinks reception, and wedding breakfast.
It was a pleasure to be a part of such an epic day, and we were honoured to have been invited as Alyssa and Liam’s Cogges Manor wedding band.
