Slo-Mo Sweet with the Sleekit Beasties

So recently the Sleekit Beasties played a wedding at Airth Castle. We took some video footage from the night, edited it, made it look all nice (really just with timelapses and slo-mo's) and published it on YouTube. You can see the finished product down below. Hope you guys all enjoy! [More]

Sleekit Beasties Vlogging at Daylight Savings Hour

Photo Booth Beasties

If you let the Sleekit Beasties loose in a photo booth this is exactly what happens. We believe a photo booth is a great addition to any wedding. People absolutely love them! Well, we can only speak for ourselves of course, but the Sleekit Beasties love them. [More]

Driving up to Ullapool and a Ceilidh in 'Ceilidh Place'

So when the Sleekit Beasties couldn't believe it when they found out they were playing a ceilidh in Ullapool, in a venue that was genuinely called Ceilidh Place... It seemed like a match made in heaven. We decided to film some of our journey and shenanigans along the way. Believe me when I say they are all completely ridiculous - don't say we didn't warn you...

This weekend started with her teaching the harp to her Edinburgh based pupils before whizzing off to play harp for [More]

Sleekit VLOGGING Beasties!

Yes that's correct ladies and gentlemen, the Sleekit Beasties have begun vlogging some of our adventures. We're not quite at the stage of daily vlogging just yet (more like thrice quarterly vlogging...) but at least that's better than nothing! One of our recent gigs was at the "Ptarmigan Restaurant", which was literally at the top of a mountain in the Cairngorns. This was also our only [More]

Ceilidh in a Brewery...

If you're struggling for wedding venue ideas, why not consider a brewery. If you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Brewery's are usually - Large and Spacious Filled with Beer What else do you need in a wedding venue really? This is where we played recently, WEST Brewery in Glasgow - The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day for a wedding, right beside Glasgow Green. As you can see [More]
