Richard and Lisa found us from the other side of the world in Sydney, Australia and following a few emails and our first ever Skype conversation we were booked in to perform at one of our favourite wedding venues. Priston Mill will always be a special place for us as its where our drummer Simon got married to the lovely Emily in 2015.

Dan and Kellys wedding at Bailbrooke House Wedding venue Devon, Wedding band for hire, Band for my wedding, The Zoots, jamie Goddard, Huntsham Court, November wedding, Wiltshire Wedding Band, Wedding Band Devon, Wedding band in Bath,

We met with Kelly and Dan at the Marriott Hotel early December; we loved them immediately! They were super nice, very funny and we got on really well. We chatted over coffee about plans for their wedding; what songs they may like, first dances and the itinerary for the night. Dan & Kelly met at Swindon Town Football club, and the rest is history. They found ‘The Zoots‘ following a recommendation from Glenn and Colin aka: Your Digital Memories (they are totes awesome photographers, you should book them). Your Digital Memories had spotted us performing  at Jessica and James Arthurs wedding at Bowood House in May 2014, what a night that was! To be recommended by a fellow supplier is just wonderful. Thank you! After checking out our website and getting in touch with us, Kelly & dan decided to book us for their big day! Continue reading

Today’s journey is dark and a little chilly. It’s November the 15th, a Saturday. We’re travelling from Zoots HQ here in Wiltshire to Devon. Destination: Huntsham Court. We make our way down windy country lanes, with tight twists and turns, night-time fast approaching. We are literally in the middle of nowhere. No houses, no farms, nothing, just acres and acres of countryside. I imagine in the daylight, it’s a pretty spectacular, beautiful and green but now, as the dusk settles, it’s a bit spooky. There’s no service on our phones and we discuss what would *really* happen if we broke down. Werewolves, really really quick sand and very spooky, haunted woods spring to mind as we envisage ourselves tramping through the soggy fields searching for help. My mind gets carried away with me as we journey on, making a mental note to pack torches and blankets for our next outing, you know, “just in case”. I want to reach the venue before it gets dark, to see the building properly in the light. But time and daylight are not on our side. As we pull up, I take a photo. I hope you can tell from the photie above…it’s pretty special.

The air is fresh and clear. It’s not raining. Tired leaves are making their way to the ground having done their bit for summer. Crunch crunch crunch under our feet. It’s autumn. Our coats and hats are on and we’re at Zoots HQ here in Wiltshire. We’ve had a super productive week making plans for 2015, which is going to be our busiest year ever.We are feeling good and happy following on from our performance last week at Cat & Phil’s wedding at The Grand Hotel in Leicester.  We’re ready to go, we jump in the band van, start it up and we’re on our way! The roads are quiet. We make good time. It’s getting dark early. It’s Saturday the 1st of November 2014 and Dan & Lindsay are getting married!

In the blink of an eye it was the 6th of September 2014. It seemed only yesterday Kerry & Andy had first been in touch asking us if we were available to perform at her wedding! From the off, Kerry was warm and so friendly, we couldn’t help but be so excited about performing for her. The Longhouse was every bit as beautiful as Google has told us it was. The views just made it. The air felt so clean and fresh and you couldn’t help but feel lovely and relaxed in such a beautiful place. Everywhere you looked, it was breathtaking! The Longhouse is set on 25 acres of some of Somerset’s best countryside (or so we thought). “The Longhouse was specifically designed to make use of the beautiful scenery looking down across the top of some of the trees to the river Brue”. The room itself offers a panoramic view of the whole of the landscape and to top it off the staff we just wonderful and they had loads of beds available which the Kerry & Andy’s wedding guests could use. The photos below don’t do the view justice at all. Take our word for it, it was amazing!   Continue reading

So on Thursday THIS happened. The Zoots bass player, Stuart, and The Zoots Lead Singer, Jamie, accidentally wore the same but different opposite clothesies. Go on, grab a friend and give it a go. Opposite clothes twinsies.

Lisa & Niall got in touch with us what feels like years ago! We’d been recommended to them, so they came to one of our public events to watch us perform. Not long after they booked us for their wedding at Cuffley Camp in Hertfordshire. We’d been in touch with Lisa & Niall loads in the run up to the wedding. I loved the little notes Lisa send with her post, always made our day receiving something from her.

Cuffley Camp was a pretty unique wedding venue. It’s an ‘outdoor Centre is set in 90 acres of outstanding natural beauty in south-east Hertfordshire, just 15 minutes from the M25. The site, which is designated as a site of Special Scientific Interest, dates back to the 13th Century and its characteristic Hornbeam trees form part of an extensive managed woodland.’ The room we performed in was just wow!

We met Steph, Tim & Hugo what felt like a lifetime ago. We loved them instantly. Such a fun, relaxed and cool couple. I really wanted to be their friends. We were hugely excited about performing for them. Their wedding was to take place at Bird Place, a private house in Henley on Thames. The couple were friends with the owner who said they could make use of the totally gorgeous grounds for their special day. Steph & Tim had thought carefully about exactly what they wanted for their wedding day, only using suppliers which had been recommended to them by friends or family. We were thrilled to be one of them! Continue reading
