Hurrah, it’s finally here! We’d been waiting for this day for aaaaaaages! It was the day Laura and Pete got married! Laura and Pete spotted us at Sam & Luke’s wedding way back in 2014! Following their engagement on NYE 2016, Laura and Pete got in touch to see if The Zoots were available to perform at their wedding. Laura told us that we were the first thing they booked for their wedding, even before they booked their venue!
OK, so today is a preeeeety special day. We’re always very excited and very fortunate that lots of couples choose us, The Zoots, to be there wedding band which on a day they’ll never forget. It really is a very lovely thing and gives us a very warm feeling to be part of something so memorable.
But today is a little bit different. Today one of The Zoots drummers, Simon Small is getting married! We’ve known Si for three years now and he plays with us whenever Master East isn’t available. We just love playing with Si, he’s great fun and very talented. Over the years, we’ve got to know Si and Emily as a couple and we’re really lucky to be able to call them our friends. So when Si popped the question on the Christmas Eve 2013 to his beautiful girlfriend Emily, we were absolutely thrilled to hear the news. They are just perfect together. We jumped to offer to perform for them both on their most special of special days. They said yes and the countdown to the wedding began. Continue reading
We’ve finally just about recovered from the mammothly brilliant day at Liz and John’s wedding at The Gallivant Hotel last week. It was totes amaze balls. There were seashells, sand, sea and starfish and dancing and moving and shaking. It was brill! Read the blog about it here.
Fast forward 7 days, it’s Saturday 18th of October 2014. It’s a clear, bright and fresh day. The leaves are starting to turn orangey red and the scarves and hats are making a reappearance. Definitely autumn. Uncertain skies follow us on our trip to the Tythe Barn at Priston Mill. Rain/no rain/rain. The weather holds and we arrive, greeted by an impressive watermill and beautiful barn and surrounding grounds. We are excited and happy Zoots. We are also a bit hungry and fancy a cup of tea. We’ve had a wonderfully trecherous and delightfully hairy drive through the Wiltshire Countryside in our *new van*. At last we’ve arrived. Today is Victoria & Piers’ wedding day. And The Zoots are performing. And it is going to be brilliant.
Hellllo Friday! The end of a working week for some, the start of an awesome weekend performing for us! And this week, we’re in Bicester. And it is lovely. We’re performing for Claire & Dan, a gorgeous couple and their lovely wee lad George. He’s a sweetie. I was lucky enough to meet Claire a few weeks earlier to discuss all things wedding! We met at their wedding venue, The Tythe Barn. What a venue! The gardens were gorgeous, the driveway immaculate and the barn itself was just wow! I’ve taken some photos which fail to do it justice at all, it was stunning! Continue reading
