Blackwell Grange Wedding Band

We wrote our first blog about Blackwell Grange after we played at Julie and Ian’s Bishop’s wedding there back in November 2017 -

Taylormade Live Band Blackwell Grange Wedding Music

When we performed at Julie and Ian’s wedding last year, we had to work within the 85dB sound limit and this was something that Julie and Ian were concerned about. As you can see from our initial blog, Julie and Ian had nothing to worry about! We were able to use all of our experience and know how to ensure the sound limiter did not trip once. Everyone had an amazing time and Julie and Ian were over the moon! You can see their review here:

Warwickshire Wedding Band Blackwell Grange

We returned to this breathtaking wedding venue yesterday to perform with their new, state of the art sound ceiling. Once we’d performed a few tracks and shown the team and owners at Blackwell Grange that Taylormade can easily work with the new system and sound fantastic whilst doing so, the decision was made that Taylormade should be featured on the ‘approved suppliers list’. We are absolutely delighted with this decision and can’t wait to return to their gorgeous venue regularly, and Blackwell Grange is only 45 minutes from our base in Northamptonshire.

We can honestly say that this sound ceiling is a fantastic addition to Blackwell Grange and there is now no need at all to worry about the sound limit. The sound ceiling gives perfect sound quality to the dancefloor at 95dB, which is the optimum volume for a wedding band, whilst automatically ensuring that this limit is not exceeded throughout the venue. This means you do not need to worry at all about having live music or a live band at a Blackwell Grange wedding. This also leaves Taylormade Live Band to concentrate on what we do best - getting you and your guests on the dancefloor all night long!

We'd like to thank Lucy and the team for inviting us along to showcase Taylormade with the new system. We are very excited to be an approved supplier and can't wait to come back to your beautiful venue.

Thank you so much to the super talented Duncan Cox Photography for these shots.

Carley, Matt and the boys.

'Nothing's Gonna Stop Us' from doing Wedding Karaoke at Normanton Park Hotel, Rutland Water

Nicola and Joe Normanton Park Hotel Wedding Rutland Water

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these brilliant shots of Nicola and Joe joining us on stage for a little 'Wedding Karaoke' with their rendition of 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Us' by Starship!

Nicola and Joe got married back in February and had their Ceremony at Normanton Church, which looks like it is floating on the top of Rutland Water.

It is a breathtaking venue and after the Ceremony they took the short yet beautiful stroll to the adjacent Normanton Park Hotel where they held their reception.

Nicola and Joe had booked our Live Wedding Band and DJ package after coming along to one of our public showcases in Daventry, Northamptonshire.

They had told us right away that they were desperate for us to learn 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Us' by Starship and wanted to join us for a surprise rendition in front of their friends and family. Well, who are we to turn down such a request!

When the night came I had the lyrics ready for them (just in case the moment made them draw a blank) and we also had wireless microphones ready for them both so they could strut their stuff! 

They must have been practicing hard as they knew every single word and sang their little hearts out! I can honestly say the energy and passion that they put into the performance was amazing, if perhaps a little off key! :-)

As the night was coming to the end, we surprised them by playing the track again and they jumped back on the stage right away...perhaps a little Dutch Courage had crept in! 

They were even better than the first time as all the nerves had gone and we are currently waiting for Nicola to send over the video of the performance as it is currently being edited by the videographer. We are so looking forward to reliving this brilliant moment and will post it on here as soon as we have it!

Nicola and Joe - we couldn't stop smiling for days after your wedding! Cannot wait to see the video and to watch it from the front of the stage, dance moves and everything!

Thank you so much for choosing us to be a part of your most cherished day and we wish you all the very best for your lives together.

Love, Carley, Matt and the boys! xx

Julie and Ian Bishop's autumn wedding at Blackwell Grange, Warwickshire

Massive congratulations to the lovely Julie and Ian, the brand new Mr and Mrs Bishop, who were married at the breathtaking Blackwell Grange Wedding Venue in Shipston On Stour, Warwickshire on 11th November 2017.

Julie and Ian had come along to one of our 'Public Showcases' before deciding whether to go ahead and book us for their special day. However, they were so happy with our performances, they booked on the spot and the planning began in earnest for the big day!

Taylormade Wedding Band Warwickshire

Leading up to the day, Julie and Ian had been in touch to let us know that there was a sound limiter set to 85dB at the venue and wondered whether this would be a problem. After almost 10 years of weddings and events we've dealt with sound limiters many, many times and this has given us the experience and know how to work easily in these circumstances. Despite the relatively low limit of 85dB, (most wedding venues are set around 92dB), we knew we could make it work and assured Julie and Ian this would not be a problem.

When we arrived on the night we used all that experience and know how to set up perfectly to suit the sound limiter and, as expected, we had an incredible night and didn't trip the sound limiter once! It was a really fantastic night, with a lot of fun and laughter, and we feel so privileged to have been a part of it.

Julie and Ian - thank you so much for choosing us to be a part of your special day, it was an absolute pleasure to play for you all. We wish you all the very best for their lives together and long days filled with laughter and sunshine. 

WEDDING TIP: Please do not panic if you find out your chosen wedding venue has a sound limiter, this is becoming more and more the norm, especially as lots of wedding venues are in areas of outstanding natural beauty. Just let us know as soon as you can and that will allow us plenty of time to plan ahead and make sure everything is ready to go on the night. As long as your wedding venue has a sound limiter of 85dB and above then we are able to manage this with ease and the majority of sound limiters are set around 92dB which is plenty.

2018 UPDATE: We are absolutely delighted to announce that Taylormade Acoustic Duo and Live Band are now a recommended and approved supplier to the gorgeous Blackwell Grange Wedding Venue in the Warwickshire Cotswolds. This absolutely stunning venue which now has a state of the art sound ceiling for live music, just perfect for having a live band at your wedding!

Love, Carley and the boys xx

Thank you so much to Duncan Cox Photography for these beautiful images.

"Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding so special. The music during the drinks reception was perfect and so many people commented about the lovely relaxed atmosphere it created.

You have an amazing voice that comes across in every song.

The band in the evening were brilliant too, I didn't want the evening to end.

Special thank you for learning 'Perfect' by Ed Sheeran for our first dance.

You are all brilliant and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone in the future.

Thanks again, Michelle and Paul."

Jo and Kelvin's Wedding - Towcester Rugby Club, 13th May 2017

Taylormade Wedding Band - Towcester Rugby Club

We first met the lovely Jo and Kelvin when they came along to one of our Public Showcases in Daventry, and were so impressed by our performances that they confirmed on the spot for their wedding on 13th May 2017! 

When the big day came, we were very excited to head the 20 minutes drive down the road to Towcester Rugby Club in Northamptonshire to perform for the brand new Mr and Mrs Dryden!

We started by performing a beautiful 45 minute set with our Acoustic Duo as the evening guests arrived, to bring a stunning atmosphere to the start of evening celebrations.

WEDDING DAY TIP: Having an early evening acoustic set as your evening guests arrive really adds a spark to the evening. It creates a beautiful atmosphere and really sets the tone for the night ahead, and unlike a DJ, it's discreet enough to still allow conversation to flow.

After the evening guests had arrived it was time for Jo and Kelvin's First Dance - Rule The World by Take That which we performed as the 4 Piece Live Band. It was an amazing moment as they took to the floor for their First Dance as Husband and Wife, and all of their friends and family joined them on the dance floor to celebrate the emotional moment.

Straight after the First Dance we kicked into the 4 Piece Live Band set to a packed dance floor, and the dancing didn't stop until we finished the night with our DJ at 12.00am! So much so that a few days later we received this glowing review from Jo on our Taylormade Duo and Live Band Facebook Page.

Taylormade Wedding Band Review - Jo Dryden

Jo's review says:

"Carley, I want to thank you and the band for your fantastic performance at our wedding, you were pivotal in creating the wedding we intended.

Your set was just perfect and you managed to keep everyone entertained for the afternoon and evening. You were sensational and I cannot recommend you highly enough!!"

Thank you so much for the lovely review Mrs Dryden! It really was a beautiful wedding and an absolute pleasure to be a part of your special day. We wish you both all the very best for your lives together with days filled with sunshine and laughter. 

Lots of love, 

Carley, Matt and the boys xx
