Angels and First Dances

We had an incredible time at last night's wedding, people were up dancing the whole night we didn't have to resort to our quick wit and humour to get them up! It was one of those weddings where even though we had to stop playing (something about noise restrictions and disturbing the peace) they kept on singing, and they kept on dancing:



Also, a fun fact for you all, yesterday's first dance was "Grow Old With Me" by Tom Odell (a great wee song, brilliant first dance choice). Funnily enough that was the exact same song we played for the first dance almost exactly a year ago (30th May 2015). That was our gig all the way in Yorkshire We even blogged about it, and you can read all about it here - Blog - Yorkshire Gig (Sleekit Beasties)
