If you’re getting married and want your evening do to be really special, our sublimely talented jazz band is the one for you.
This West Yorkshire wedding featured two stunning brides, one of whom is an actor on the show Gentleman Jack! Fun fact – the wedding venue, Holdsworth House in Halifax, was used as a location for the show. This beautiful 17th-century manor house has also been seen on Antiques Roadshow and Jamie’s Great Britain, and The Beatles once visited for John Lennon’s birthday. Needless to say, it felt pretty special to perform there!
We provided two of our fabulous function bands, at the beginning and end of the day. Strings Attached played for the wedding ceremony, and Skylark Jazz Band performed in the evening. A twist on the classic string quartet, Strings Attached combines violin and cello with keyboard, guitar and vocals. As well as their usual set of acoustic covers, they performed two requests: One Day Like This by Elbow for the entrance, and Tina Turner’s Simply The Best for the exit.
At the evening reception, Skylark Jazz Band enchanted the guests with their unique take on modern pop songs, as well as the usual jazz standards. If you’re getting married and want your evening do to be really special, our sublimely talented jazz band is the one for you.
It was a pleasure to work with excellent wedding photographer Shelly Mantovani, AKA Toast of Leeds. She did a brilliant job of capturing this intimate venue, perfect for a string quartet and jazz band!
