Real weddings

Keely and Mat's vintage, rustic wedding was held at the idyllic Old Kent Barn. Party Up really got the party started and even inspired some inflatable guitar action from the very enthusiastic guests!

Keely & Mat

Our venue was The Old Kent Barn, Smersole Farm in Swingfield Kent. We chose this particular venue because it has everything you could ask for – a large barn with beautiful surroundings.

Everyone was dancing the night away until their feet hurt – it was just a great sight to see and an amazing atmosphere!

The venue is outstanding but it's the staff who make it what it is. Our wedding day was expertly coordinated and we didn't have to worry about a single thing!

The look that we tried to create on the day was a vintage, rustic theme in tune with the barn itself and the surroundings.

We arranged Party Up as our wedding band, and we chose them because we loved the range of music they played as advertised on their song list and we felt that they had the whole package: the sound, the look and the professionalism.

My favourite moments of day were when my Dad walked me down the aisle...

...and of course the band has to be my ultimate favourite! Everyone was dancing the night away until their feet hurt - with inflatable guitars and props.

It was just a great sight to see and an amazing atmosphere!

My mum found Function Central via a Google search, and from the moment we booked Party Up we knew we had made the right decision!

Everything was flawless, from signing the contracts to speaking with one of the band members pre-wedding. No stress involved, and all very smooth and with very helpful staff.

I would strongly advise other brides and grooms to go with your gut instincts on what you like/want for your day and do not doubt a thing. You will never please everyone, but do not let this get the better of you - as it's you and your future husband's day and as long as you have each other and support one another in those decisions with the lead-up to the big day then you can't go wrong.
