Situated in Bowness on the Eastern shore of Lake Windermere and directly overlooking the “Belle Isle”, the Laura Ashley Belsfield Hotel was the perfect place for Jamie and Emma’s wedding. Set in six acres of landscaped gardens the boutique hotel offers unparalleled views over Lake Windermere in the foreground, and on the farther shore the often snow-capped Langdale Pikes and the Fairfield Horseshoe can be seen. Funk Soul Family had the pleasure of providing the evenings entertainment for Jamie and Emma’s guests, and this was our most ambitious first dance to date.
Jamie had dreamt of a cinematic start to his first dance with his new bride Emma. Inspired by the anime music videos from the first Daft Punk album ‘Discovery’, Jamie commissioned his brother (who happens to be an animation artist) to create a video for the introduction to the first dance. Jamie wanted Funk Soul Family to play ‘Aerodynamic’ by Daft Punk in sync with the video being projected onto a large screen for the guests. We love a good challenge and the plan went off without a hitch! After the video Jamie made his grand entrance to the wedding reception and swept his bride off her feet during their first dance to more Daft Punk. Check out the awesome review we got from Jamie…
“I’d just like to say thanks so much to Pete and all of Funk Soul Family for helping to make mine and Emma’s wedding so special. When I was was trying to find a band that would help me with my very specific requirements I never expected to get such a enthusiastic and passionate response. It was plain to see Funk Soul Family are a band that love what they do and couldn’t have been more helpful. As a result the vision I had for a long time came together perfectly!”
