Manor From Heaven
I’ve been so busy over Christmas and New Year that I’ve built up quite a backlog of splendid weddings to share with you. First up is one which took place back in November in Leicestershire.
The location was the marvelous Cattthorpe Manor, built in 1925 on an estate that dates back to the eighteenth century.
Held exactly one month before Christmas Eve, Samantha and Ben’s wedding had a winter theme rather than a Christmas one, but was still a highly festive affair. I loved this seasonal wedding cake topper:
I was there to provide entertainment during the wedding breakfast, held in The Swedish Room.
I’ve no idea why it’s called The Swedish Room as there was nothing particularly Scandinavian about it, but it was a lovely room to sing in and featured beautiful wrought iron pillars at one end and floor-to-ceiling windows at the other.
Despite the rain falling outside the atmosphere in The Swedish Room was warm and jovial and Samantha and Ben’s guests really seemed to enjoy my repertoire of songs from the 1920s, 30s and 40s.
A wonderful, wintery afternoon was enjoyed by all. Congratulations to Samantha and Ben.

Finally, a very Happy New Year to you! I hope that 2013 brings you all you wish for. I’ve got another busy twelve months ahead of me singing all my favourite songs at weddings, parties and events all over the UK and I look forward to sharing my further Adventures in Easy Listening with you here on my blog.
