Wow, Dave & Kat Reilly celebrated their wedding last night… and they both wore dresses! Of course I’m just being disrespectful towards the Scots with the Groom party resplendant in traditional kilts of the Reilly clan. Oh and I can confirm what the Scots don’t wear under their kilts as I was on the unfortunate end of a flashing several times! Hmmmm.
Kat and Dave, their firends and family are a lovely bunch of people and hell, do they know how to party. The dancefloor action didn’t let up with most enjoying the evening buffet of bacon baps whilst still dancing. (And that’s multi-tasking!) Rarely does a bride give me a music brief that goes from the Proclaimers to DJ Fresh but Kat did and she danced to every minute of every track.
There is a splendour about Ettington Park that makes the venue a cut above many other Warwickshire hotels. Loading a tonne of sound and light equipment up two levels with the use of just the rickety lift that the heritage venue has to offer is a workout. Even with this pain in the a**e the venue is so worth it. I’ve blogged here before about the magic of Ettington and I’m still unsure what it is that makes the nights there so damn good. Sure, the staff are fab and the grounds and surrounds gorgeous but the people who seem to gravitate towards the hotel as a wedding venue must be party animals!
Dave & Kat and guests – thanks! x
