Swinfen is Simply Swell

February 4, 2013

There are many reasons I love Swinfen Hall Hotel in Staffordshire, not least the fact that it’s only five-minutes away from where I live in Lichfield.

But there’s a great deal more to Swinfen than mere convenience for certain local vocalists.  It’s a beautiful Georgian mansion house set in one-hundred acres of parkland and its lovingly restored interiors make it the perfect venue for a romantic wedding day.

I was at Swinfen Hall again last September to sing for Emily and John’s wedding.  They had booked me to keep their guests entertained during the early part of the evening while the impressive oak-panelled ballroom was transformed from wedding breakfast into evening entertainment venue.  I had a great spot in the hotel’s lovely reception area.

I’m indebted to Emily and John’s photographer Jonny Back for this shot of me singing:

It’s always a tricky time of the day, early evening, as guests can get a trifle bored waiting for the festivities to continue, but I’m pleased to say that my repertoire of classic songs from the 1920s, 30s and 40s was just the ticket to keep spirits from flagging.

Emily and John had a fabulous day at Swinfen Hall Hotel and it’s not hard to see why.  A splendid Staffordshire wedding venue that I look forward to singing at again very soon.
