Mr and Mrs Frederick were set to tie the knot at the beautiful wedding venue Old Down Farm on the 16th of September 2018. As you arrive at the venue you are greeted by two big black gates and a big winding path, in the distance you can see the lovely stately home towering over the whole estate. Once entering this stunning wedding venue, there are two big stair cases leading down to the main bar, the room was very large, the stairs were made from marble mostly, there was a high-rise ceiling with a beautiful crystal chandelier. At 12.30pm all the guests were set to take their seats in the ceremony room, in the corner of the room there was a beautiful, black wooden oak grand piano, there was a pianist sitting at the piano ready for the wedding band to play the bride down the aisle. After all the guests were sat at their seats the pianist began playing an instrumental version of how long I will love you by Ellie Goulding, two bridesmaids entered first, they were dressed in light purple dresses, next the bride entered and made her way to the end of isle to greet her soon to be husband to be.
After the wedding ceremony had finished the pianist continued to play a few songs while the bride and groom were signing the register, he played your song by Elton john and thinking out loud by Ed Sheeran. Once the bride and groom were finished everyone entered the main lobby where Corey and James from Apollo Live were set up and ready to entertain the wedding guests until the main meal. After playing one song for the guests everyone was asked to go outside to the main courtyard for a group photo, once everyone was outside no one wanted to go back to the main bar, so Corey and James moved all their equipment to the outside bar and set up under the patio to entertain the guests while outside. While the waiters were bringing out horderves the bride and groom hired a superb wedding entertainer magician to keep the guests occupied, he would make his way round everyone and show them a few tricks.
After the drink’s reception was over, the bar staff asked everyone to take their seats in the main room, the waiters started to bring out the first course for each table, it was a vegetable soup with crusty bread, for the main they brought everyone beef and vegetables and for desert there was blueberry cheesecake.
The wedding band Apollo Soul arrived at the venue for 6pm and started to set up for the evening show. Once they were set up the best man got all the weddings guests ready to take photos of the first dance. Corey from Apollo Soul started to play the first dance, it was My girl by the temptations. After Apollo Souls first set finished all the wedding guests went outside for a fire work display and sparklers.
This was a wonderful evening shared by all of the wedding guests, Apollo Soul were a superb choice of wedding band, and made the couples big day extra special.
