If you're anything like me you'll run for the dance floor at any event. Any excuse to ditch the awkward conversation you were trying to have while mildly tipsy right?
When we were planning our wedding we wanted to make sure our dance floor went OFF! We wanted all our friends and family to cut loose after dinner and just enjoy the night. I knew that a band or musician would be the best way to get people moving- you can ignore a DJ with a speaker but if someone is up there singing their heart out it's a little hard.
A couple of months before our wedding I put a call out on The Rural Bride Facebook page asking for recommendations for an amazing musician. I received so many emails, private messages and comments recommending your most loved musicians. We ended up choosing Richie Gudgeon because it wasn't just a couple of people who recommended him to us, but about 5 or 6! And oh did we choose well!
Richie was really easy to organise everything with. He was all too flexible with his performances. Richie played during our cocktail hours, then leant his speakers and microphone to the MC for speeches- this involved a lot of moving and resetting up, and finally he played from our first dance right through until the bus left. We had compliments on his performance from almost every guest at the wedding. Richie's energy was felt by all and he never stopped! His song list was ON POINT and it got EVERYONE up and dancing which brought Doug and I such joy to see.
Thanks to you beautiful Rural Bride readers for recommending Richie Gudgeon to us.
