This is the exact picture we have in our memories of the same-sex wedding of partners Adria and Ffion last December. The whole day was filled with smiles, love, fun and laughter. These two rugby players, their families, and their teammates from Birmingham Moseley women’s rugby team certainly know how to celebrate a special occasion!

The Ashmore Brothers Band was absolutely delighted to share in their magical day at Bredenbury Court Barns by providing an acoustic live wedding soundtrack to the afternoon drinks reception. The setlist was suitably chilled and relaxed, while the newly-weds mingled and chatted away to their guests.

Following the speeches and Wedding Breakfast, as guests for the evening reception started to arrive, it was time for the band to really get the party started. The Ashmore Brothers Band love performing live, their high energy and exuberant performance guaranteeing a party vibe! They made sure that the dance floor was full all night long with two live sets and a DJ setlist packed full of dance classics encompassing a number of eras and genres. Guest of all ages and musical tastes were catered for, and they sang along enthusiastically to their personal favourites.

Adria and Ffion were encouraged to ask questions about the set list and whether they would like the Ashmore Brothers Band to include their favourite tracks. They chose ‘Believe’ by Cher and ‘9 to 5’ by Dolly Parton. While for their first dance together, the couple chose the beautifully romantic ‘You’ by Dan and Shay to be performed live, with a special request that the band should encourage their guests to join them on the dance floor to share in their special moment.

The couple and their guests loved the Ashmore Brothers Band set list with its mix of timeless and current classics – all guaranteed to create a party atmosphere and get everyone on their feet! Here is what the happy couple said about the guys on Trust Pilot:

Ashmore Brothers played our wedding on the 2nd of December and were amazing. They did sets during the reception drinks and the evening. Everyone loved them, and we are still getting compliments. They were really engaging with both children and adults, even letting one of our nephews play the drums! We would 100% recommend and would encourage people to also have Ben on sax!”
