Wedding reception disco at Coombe Lodge, Blagdon near Bristol, Sunday 15th July 2012

Sharing the wedding receptions evening entertainment with a ceilidh band is something I've done before - although possibly not as late into the night as this.

The band played two sets and in between these I played some background music whilst the buffet was made available.

Starting the disco proper at 11pm on a Sunday night is always going to be difficult - even more so after the guests have been country dancing for two hours! But I'm always up for a challenge and am pleased to say that I managed to squeeze what little energy the bride, groom and their guests had left out of them.


All set up and ready to go
- once the ceilidh band have done their thing
