Grace and Andrew’s Wedding. Bringing New York to the Cotswolds!

It’s been so nice, (on a cold January day) to sit and look through Andrew and Grace’s stunning wedding photos, taken at the beautiful Cowley Manor at the height of the British Summer! A beautiful flashback to one of the nicest, smiliest, happiest weddings we’ve had the pleasure of doing.

Andrew and Grace live in New York however they were keen to return to Andrews’s homeland for the wedding and to show the Americans just how stunning the UK can be on a beautiful summer’s day. The Cotswolds didn’t disappoint.

You guys were a lot of fun! The dance floor was packed all night long and it was full of smiles and laughter. This could have had something to do with the largest amount of espresso martinis we’ve ever seen (bravo bar staff!)

It was a pleasure to be part of your day guys! All the best from the MBBx

Daniel Dervan, Wedding. The Mere Golf Resort

Wow! Its genuinely difficult to describe how good the Mini Big Band are until you see them live.

We were looking for a Frank Sinatra / Michael Bublé style band to play at our wedding and stumbled across the Mini Big Band’s videos on YouTube, when watching the videos we thought they sounded brilliant but to actually have them perform live at your wedding is something else.

When I first reached out to Chris and the team, the communication couldn’t have been any better, we had a big Indian wedding with quite a lot of different things going on throughout the day and Chris helped us out so much with recommendations of timings and where they would play etc. I always had it on my Bucket List to sing live with a a full brass band so I thought I’d reach out to Chris and ask him the cheeky question ‘could I steal the mic for a song’, Chris was completely supportive and asked me what song I wanted to sing, when I told him it was one that wasn’t in their repertoire, they actually went out of their way to learn the song! I was then able to sing the song to my wife live on our wedding day which went down so well and will stay a memory forever. We got the impression they had a great time at the wedding too and it felt like they where our guests rather than our band, Chris, I have some brilliant photo’s of you guys on the 360 camera to send to you guys haha!

UPDATE: Its been a few months since our wedding now and still every time we speak to any of our guests about our big day they still say the same thing ‘who were the band!?’, to say you were one of the highlights of our big day is an understatement.

I genuinely couldn’t recommend these guys highly enough, if you are even considering hiring them for your event, don’t even think about it, just book.

Thank you all again for such and amazing experience, I hope we get to see you at an event soon and I can sit back and enjoy your performance without the stress of the wedding!

Let me know if you need a stand in singer any time.. I will always be on call!

Julia’s stunning farm wedding.

This band is beyond fantastic. They performed incredibly and are so in sync. They kept my wedding swinging all night and were so flexible when working with us at our DIY wedding I knew we’d made the right choice. Thank you again Mini Big Band, you were incredible.

Matthew and Paul – Chatsworth House

We booked The Mini Big Band for our wedding in May this year. It was one of the highlights of our day and the entertainment was exceptional. It was a hit with our guests and the dance floor was never empty. Having originally set a date for June 2020, our day was delayed twice over and Chris and the band remained understanding and flexible. I would highly recommend these guys for any event, for their fun, talent and professionalism.

If you’re looking for an awesome five star band, look no further! Top lads who played our wedding with the lounge trio followed by the full band and it was a fantastic day from start to finish. Brilliant musicians, up for a good time, professional and communication was top notch including help with timings etc.
I want to create an event just to book these guys again. 10/10!

The perfect Christmas wedding at Hedsor House.

It was great to be back at the stunning Hedsor House this week for Alexander and Jamies beautiful wedding. Hedsor House is one of the most stunning venues around, even more so when it’s dressed for Christmas.

Matching the style of music to the style of your venue is often overlooked. Performing our glamorous vintage show in the this stunning vintage ballroom (to a room full of beautiful people all suited and booted), really helps to take your guests on a journey, providing an experience that they will never forget!

Merry Christmas guys,

Mandy and Joe, Derbyshire

Thank you so much for an incredible day/night at our wedding on Saturday. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did (and everyone else). We have had so so many wonderful comments about you guys including people that could hear from down the village! Sorry we were so rowdy and your dressing room was a tent which turns out not everybody can stand up in (sorry Steve!) but we really had the most amazing time and it made our day! We hope you haven’t been put off returning to Ashover in the future by all the naked men.
Many thanks,Mr and Mrs Hayes!
