Clare and Pauls Marquee wedding.

Here’s some stunning photos from Clare and Pauls amazing Sperry Tent wedding in Yorkshire.

This set up was amazing!  Beautiful rustic tables, stunning copper table ware mixed with an amazing cocktail bar surrounded by a cushioned chill out area.

Clare’s father was a professional jazz bass player so it was an absolute pleasure to be asked to provide the music for their special day.  This was clearly a very important area of the day for both the bride and groom and their families.

We had a blast.  Lots of dancing and laughter, who could ask for more!

All the best guys,

Katie and Nathan’s Yorkshire Barn wedding.

We are often booked for to play at weddings by people who have seen the band before at other events, which is fantastic and a real acknowledgement of our performances.

However for Katie and Nathan’s wedding, this is the 4th time that Katie’s family have booked The Mini Big Band for family events, which is truly amazing and a real honour and privilege for us!

A perfect summers day in the heart of Yorkshire in the most stunning venue, Bolton Abbey’s fantastic Tithe Barn.  Perfect.

All the best guys!

Sophies stunning Marquee wedding.

Sophie set up an absolutely stunning marquee for her wedding at her family home.  An open marque with a secret cocktail bar and dance floor area, complete with a 10 piece band surprise!

Not only did we start the evening celebrations off in style, we also supplied our jazz trio for arrival drinks, which was a great way to settle the guests in for their amazing day.

All the best Sophie,

The MBB x

Rose and Andy’s beautiful British summer wedding. Nottinghamshire.

There’s one thing us Brits are great at, and that is partying in a field!

A beautiful Sperry tent set in the Nottinghamshire countryside and blessed by the best of the British summer weather.  The Sperry tent is great choice for bringing the outside and inside together, with fully clear and open sides to the tent and the rustic wooden interior covered in foliage.

Rose and Andy brought a summer fete feel to their day with an ice cream van for arrivals drinks, some nostalgic egg and spoon and sack races for the guests, hay bales and fire pits.  This was a great way to get all of their guests smiling and relaxed from the very first moment.

As the sun began to set after the meal it was our turn to take to the stage.  The fun continued with a Pulp Fiction inspired first dance (You Never Can Tell) which singled a full dance floor, the state of play for the rest of the evening.

A beautiful day and an amazing party.

It was a real pleasure to be involved.

All the best guys.
