Summertime Blues brought old-school rhythm and blues to Laura's rustic Herefordshire wedding. The Globe at Hay-On-Wye was the venue.

Where did your event take place?

Our wedding was at The Globe at Hay, which also doubles as a theatre. It's a beautiful venue in Hay-On-Wye, Herefordshire, with a really relaxed atmosphere.

What sort of look/feel/theme did you try to create on the day?

Rustic, romantic and charming! Wildflowers, candles, bunting and fairy lights all helped contribute to the overall look.

The Summertime Blues were sensational! Everybody was up dancing and absolutely loved them. Thank you for creating the perfect vibe for our party!

Why did you book live music for the day?

My husband and I share a great love of music, and we met whilst working at a live music venue and have since enjoyed many gigs and live music performances together.

There is nothing quite like live music for an event, and we wanted everyone to be up dancing and jiving at our wedding party...which they were!

When we found The Summertime Blues on Function Central we knew they would be the perfect band for us. All the classics that we love and know, with their own unique sound.

What were your favourite moments of the day?

Many great moments throughout the day but one of our highlights was definitely the band, especially when they dedicated Stand By Me to us which was very special.

Laura & Barney

How did you find Function Central and why did you choose to book with us?

We found Function Central through searching for wedding bands online. The reviews looked great and there was a variety of bands to choose from, for a range of budgets.

What advice would you give other brides/grooms or event organisers?

Choose an act that you will enjoy and reflects you or your event. Then make sure you get on the dancefloor with your loved ones and celebrate in style!
