Rachel and Gareth's intimate wedding party took place at the Crow Wood Hotel in Lancashire, with entertainment from a singing waiter, as well as our most popular band in the North West, Agent Smith.

Rachel & Gareth

Where did your event take place?

Our wedding took place at Crow Wood Hotel & Spa near Burnley. We loved that it was new and modern (it opened just before we originally booked, back in 2020) and the decor was to our style. We just loved the feel of the place.

Rachel & Gareth

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

We went with spring colours for the day, so soft pinks and whites. We covered walls in the room with fairy light walls which really created an intimate surrounding.

Rachel & Gareth

Why did you book live music for the day?

We love live music and knew we wanted it to be the main focus for our day.

We had a singing waiter during our wedding breakfast to kick off the party, followed by Agent Smith.

Rachel & Gareth

We loved Agent Smith's set list it was just our kind of music and the fact they sound... fantastic!

Guests of the hotel were stopping wedding guests to tell them how good the band sounded.

Rachel & Gareth

What were your favourite moments of the day?

Our favourite moment was just being in a room with all our favourite people after so long and seeing how happy everyone was! Especially after having to delay it a whole year.

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

The booking process was so easy, from the first enquiry through to signing the contract.

When we had to then rearrange our date it was stress-free and so easy for us to do – Function Central sorted everything out.

Rachel & Gareth

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

If you're undecided about a band or entertainment, just do it. It was the best decision we made.

Also don't try and please everyone... because you can't. So plan the day that YOU want!
