Real weddings

Katie & Patrick held their wedding at the Thornton Hall Hotel in the Wirral last year. They hired superb Liverpool-based wedding band Superted to entertain their guests.

Our evening event took place at Thornton Hall Hotel on the Wirral. We chose the hotel as it had the perfect sized room which had a great feel to it.

Superted sounded great and had a set list of songs that we loved...we were delighted!

We liked the idea of the small bar area separate from the function room and the band’s lighting made the dance floor look amazing. We removed the tables from the meal and the remaining space was well used all night by dancers!

We went for a homely feel, we had painted glass jars for all our guests so the tea lights inside these were lit on the evening. We had a star cloth that the hotel provided and along with the bands lights, it made the room look great, and just what we had pictured. There was enough space for people to talk but also a dance floor which was never empty all evening!

We decided early on that we would like a live band as opposed to a DJ, and as a musician myself I was quite particular in picking them. Function Central's website gave us a good mix of reviews and listening material for various wedding bands in Liverpool and beyond, so we could make an informed choice.

We booked the band on the internet, and as I mentioned before the ability to really get a feel for the bands you advertise from the website was so helpful. It wasn't practical for us to watch the bands gig but when you are spending some money you want to make the right choice. The Function Central website really helped with that.

Superted sounded great and had a set list of songs that we loved. They also sounded from the reviews like they were professional and friendly – we didn't want any divas! They were very humble but extremely good at what they did, getting everyone involved as well.

We were delighted, as it really helped the evening go smoothly. All of our friends and family enjoyed themselves, something we felt a live band would help with. Superted played a good mix of old and new songs, with everyone of all ages on the dance floor.

They had the bridesmaids singing on stage, and performed our 1st dance song from their set list with very little notice. They helped make the wedding enjoyable for so many people so we were certainly glad we booked them.

One of our favourite moments was the band playing our first dance - Can't Take My Eyes Off You, and Hey Jude at the end of the evening, with everyone in a circle around us!

My advice to other brides and grooms booking wedding music – think about what sort of band you would like and how your guests will react to it. However go with what you want, not just a DJ because it's what everyone else does - think about a DJ in terms of value for money!

The band did a DJ set for us at the end as part of the package so I would always say you get far more value for money from a band. Talk to your band before and during the day - choose your songs as you will enjoy it more then. Use them for your first dance if possible!
