Not only are they musically so talented, they are lovely people.
It was our first time playing a wedding at Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel, an utterly unique 17th-century venue, and we had an amazing time! The live music was provided by Plain Folk, our laid-back acoustic duo, who suited the rustic atmosphere perfectly. This place is steeped in history, part of an estate once owned by Queen Elizabeth I, so it felt like Becki and Jodi were adding to the many thousands of stories that had been told inside those walls.
When it comes to civil ceremonies, there are rules around what song lyrics are allowed, to make sure that the ceremony can’t be considered religious in any way. So when Plain Folk performed at this beautiful Derbyshire wedding, we had to tweak the lyrics of From Here to the Moon and Back by Dolly Parton, which the couple requested for the signing of the register. Instead of “Thank heaven for you and to God, tip my hat” we sang “Thank goodness for you and I tip my hat”! We’re always more than happy to accommodate requests like this, so please don’t hesitate to drop us a line if you’re worried that your special song includes ‘religious’ lyrics.
Other requests included stripped-back versions of I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) and Can’t Stop the Feeling, sung by Rowan with Pete adding acoustic guitar and backing vocals. After the ceremony, we played more acoustic covers as the guests mingled over a drink or three!
Jodi and Becki had this to say about the live music we provided:
Good Indeed Music and in particular, Plain Folk (featuring Pete and Rowan) are AMAZING! They played at our wedding last week and we couldn't have been happier. Not only are they musically so talented, they are lovely people. We would highly recommend them if you're looking for a quality live music act.
