Among the many amazing venues in the northwest, Holmes Mill holds a special place in our hearts. So, we were over the moon when Sally and Ben contacted us for their December Holmes Mill wedding day. They had been searching for a pair of acoustic wedding singers to personalise their ceremony and drinks reception.
After exchanging a few emails, they had decided on their song requests and package. They chose our acoustic version of ‘Fall at Your Feet’ by Crowded House as their aisle song. This band holds a special significance for them as it was the first band they saw together in 2015.
Mat sang the lead vocal, with Soph providing harmonies and a few lead lines. We put our own folky spin on the song, and Sally was thrilled with the outcome.
The song works particularly well in an acoustic setting because its simple structure and arrangement lend themselves to a stripped-back, intimate performance.

After a joyful ceremony filled with laughter, Sally and Ben needed a song to cover the five or so minutes while they signed the register , and the song they chose was our acoustic duo version of ‘What’s Up’ by Four Non Blondes; a favourite of ours!
Choosing an exit song can be challenging, but Sally and Ben had always loved Nat King Cole and requested that we perform ‘L.O.V.E’ for their exit, which had everyone dancing out of the room to celebrate with a drink or two alongside the happy couple.
We quickly set up in the beer hall for the drinks reception. We performed a few classics like ‘A Little Respect’, ‘I’m on Fire’, and ‘Home’ by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. It was wonderful to perform while watching Sally and Ben catch up with family after such a long time apart. They certainly made up for lost time, dancing around tables to our acoustic songs. What an amazing group of people!

DJ Gary Mills, who we love working with, took over for the rest of the evening. He is an incredible DJ and knows how to select the perfect songs and playlists to suit the mood and really get the party going.
Furthermore, he has a great ability to read the crowd and keep the dance floor full all night long. With his expertise and experience, he was able to seamlessly transition from our acoustic duo set to his DJ set, keeping the energy high and the party going until the early hours of the morning.
Thank you once again for choosing us as your Holmes Mill Clitheroe wedding band and acoustic duo. If you are looking for acoustic music or a wedding band for your Clitheroe wedding day, please get in touch – we would love to hear from you!
