Hannah & Rory's Wedding Reception at Claridge's
Back in 2013 we performed for Hannah and Rory's wedding reception at the iconic Mayfair Hotel, Claridge's. It was a very special day, captured in fantastic detail by photographer Nick Tucker who has kindly allowed us to share these images.
Hannah and Rory choose to book one of our wedding music packages - where we take care of most of the music for the day, from the drinks reception until carriages at midnight.
Arrival and set up
Hannah and Rory were getting married at a separate venue (St. John's Church in Hyde Park), we arrived at their famous wedding reception venue to set up the two Down for the Count groups performing that day - the 9-piece Swing & Soul Band, and the jazz duo.
The guests were transported from the church to Claridge's on iconic London Routemaster buses, entering through the famous ballroom doors to be greeted by live background jazz music from our piano-saxophone duo.
The first dance
After an amazing meal and wedding speeches, Hannah and Rory took to the dance floor for their first dance.
Evening reception: live music
Then it was on to more live music and dancing with our Swing & Soul Band. The dancefloor was full right from the start, and in fact photographer Nick said "the dancing shots are some of my favourite to date. Everyone was having a blast!"
Afterwards, here's what Hannah and Rory had to say about our performance:
You guys were such an essential part to the day and helped make it so wonderful!
