The Zoots were looking forward to performing at Spetchley Gardens in Worcester for the wedding of Cat and Rob. The lovely couple had seen us perform at Elkstone Manor for Victoria and Doyle’s wedding in 2015. They even fitted the booking of the venue around when we were available, what an honour!
After a short journey up the M5 and a quick stop, we soon arrived at Spetchley in Worcester. As we drove up through the grounds and up to the venue, we were in awe of the views. It was a lovely warm day perfect for a wedding!
When we arrived at the venue, we quickly set up our equipment before the speeches. I enjoyed listening to the best man speech and learnt alot more about Robert which was such fun. It was great to find out that as a child Robert had starred in a rap record in the early 1990’s. We got ready for the show and got changed.
We also had time for a few promo shots and enjoyed some time in the mild weather.
The stage was set, Cat and Rob got ready for their first dance which was Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden. As Cat had just married a ‘Savage’ it was quite apt! #TheSavageWedding, #GetSavaged
We then kicked off the show with some 1960s songs as requested by Cat and Rob. We also performed a few requests including Baggy Trousers by Madness, Place your hands by Reef, The One and Only by Chesney Hawkes and Teenage Dirtbag by Wheatus.
I ventured into the crowd half way through and was assisted with some fantastic singing from some of the girls and the bridesmaids Sarah, Ellie, Louise and Kate. We then had a bit of dancing competition boys versus girls which was fun.
There was a fantastic crowd and lots of the guests remembered us from Victoria and Doyle’s wedding. It was great to meet up with them all again. The evening ended with a performance from Chris and all the ushers with a alternative version of Sex on Fire by Kings of Leon with new lyrics. A coach arrived and picked up all the guests and the music had to stop. It was an amazing day and fabulous to be involved.
Thank you for reading.
