Bere Regis Wedding Band 4

Nu Generation playing in Bere Regis, Dorset

We headed to the private estate of the Ventham's where their daughter Helena was getting married to Amy. Billy, our drummer grew up in Bere Regis so knew the area well and the Ventham family are well known for holding their annual garden party in aid of the Scout Group so we were looking forward to a well organised event.

On arrival we found the guests enjoying some afternoon entertainment in a tea party style with everyone lounging around on hay bales.

All of our equipment got loaded in to the back of the marquee and soundchecked ready for the evening in time for the guests to sit down for their 3 course dinner. We were very kindly provided by the caterers with the same 3 courses which the whole band found delicious.

The ladies requested us play 'Crazy for You' by Let Loose as their first dance as they are big fans of 90s pop and we kicked off the rest of the set with 'I Kissed a Girl' by Katy Perry which everyone loved.

The dancefloor was packed all night and the father of the bride, Phil Venthum, thanked us for providing a quality night. A few weeks later we received an email from Amy...

“Hi Nu Generation crew! My wife and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your involvement in our wedding in May. Not only was the communication in the lead up great but the early set up and use of the PA system for our speeches on the night were so helpful and the set list, quality of music (and vocals) and the enthusiasm shown by you all meant that our dance floor remained full throughout the night with calls for an encore at the end! What a find! Thanks again and we'll certainly be recommending you to others!”

A few weeks later wedding photographer Adrian Lambert was in touch via email and kindly sent some pics through. He said "Just a few shots we managed to get last night of you before it got crowded!" Thanks Adrian!
