Mere Court Wedding

After a couple of postponements of her Mere Court Wedding, I was thrilled to finally play beautiful Laura down the aisle when she married her lovely partner Fez in the Arboreum. As you can see here they were married in front of this lovely window over looking the gardens at the Mere Court, which is just outside Knutsford. Find out more about Mere Court weddings here https://www.merecourt.co.uk/weddings/



They had chosen one of my favourite songs ‘A Million Dreams!’ which I played for Laura to walk down the aisle.

Friends and family had travelled from all over the UK to celebrate with them and they enjoyed amazing food, drinks and lots of fun here at this wonderful Mere Court wedding. I played throughout the meal for them and then I particularly enjoyed the speeches which were really entertaining.

Mere Court Wedding Review

Laura was kind enough to add this lovely review on my Facebook page.

“Liz played at our wedding in December. She was absolutely wonderful! We had Liz play throughout our meal and it was so relaxing to hear for the guests. Liz plays such a range of songs so nothing was too much trouble when we asked for a request. Thank you so much Liz 💓 xxx”

Wyresdale Park Weddings

Wyresdale Park weddings are held in a collection of beautiful rustic barns set in rolling countryside on the outskirts of Scorton, Lancashire. There is a lovely ceremony barn with amazing acoustics, perfect for couples who are looking at having live music in their wedding ceremony. My white piano looks fantastic in this room.

Wyresdale Park Weddings with piano music

As well as in the ceremony room, the piano can be moved around throughout the day. It’s a lovely option to have a pianist throughout the wedding breakfast too which adds an ambience throughout the meal, without dominating too much, and allowing people to still chat. It also adds a talking point as many people naturally play ‘Name that tune.’
Here is the piano set up for a wedding breakfast. The beautiful flowers are provided by Bluebells and Daisies, who are based at Wyresdale Park Weddings.

Maria and Chris booked me to play throughout their wedding breakfast and had an amazing first meal together as husband and wife, with fantastic food from The Striped Kitchen, who provide the catering here. https://www.thestripedkitchen.co.uk/

They made their entrance into the room as Mr and Mrs Hughes to ‘The You and Me Song’ by The Wannadies. I then played a selection from my repertoire including songs the couple liked including Sky full of Stars by Coldplay and The Friends Theme.

Special Arrangements at Wyresdale Park Weddings

I played for the ceremony and wedding breakfast for Georgia and Ethan who wanted really unique music in their ceremony to reflect their relationship. I did special arrangements of ‘Take on the World’ by You and Me at Six and ‘The World Could End with You’ by Llunr. It was lovely to play music that meant so much to them.

I received a lovely card from them in the post.

Traditional music for Wyresdale Park weddings

In March, Lauren and Daniel booked me to play for them all day, and Lauren choose to walk down the aisle to the more traditional option of ‘Canon in D.’ This made for an absolutely beautiful entrance. They then wanted a more alternative mix of music during the meal which included Indie, dance and rock music.

Wedding songs for a Beautiful Manchester Bride

Saturday was a very exciting day for me as I love to visit new venues. The Macdonald Hotel and Spa, Manchester was the setting for the wedding of Jade and Rupert Butcher who said their vows here, in the presence of all their friends and family,  a very special little bridesmaid- their lovely daughter Phoebe.  Here I was to play the wedding songs for one of the most special moments of their life!

I arrived at the venue to find Michelle from Bow So Sweet dressing the room with a beautiful, white, wintery theme that you can see on my photographs. The room was divided off for the ceremony to be later opened up into a larger space for the wedding breakfast.

Wedding songs – The Couple’s Choice

The couple opted for ‘Heaven’ by Bryan Adams/DJ Sammy for Jade to walk down the aisle. (This is one of my favourite wedding pieces and there is a video at the bottom of the blog showing my performance of this for another wedding at Peckforton Castle.) Jade later told me how, as she heard the music being played, she struggled to hold back the tears as she set off down the aisle towards Rupert.

The couple opted for light hearted, upbeat choices for signing the register, and danced their way out of the ceremony to Steve Wonder singing ‘Signed Sealed Delivered’ with their guests following to celebrate.

The drinks reception was held in the hotel bar and then it was back upstairs for the wedding breakfast, with the couple entering the room to my rendition of ‘You’ve Got A Friend In Me.’

The couple were obviously enjoying catching up with all their guests during the meal and in between courses they tried to speak everyone, going around the room for a chat whilst I provided background music throughout. It was a lovely atmosphere and a great time was had by all.

Whilst there I met a lovely couple – Photoluminaire who were documenting the day with Photography, and also the boys from Starkfilm Weddings who were filming all the special moments.

Congratulations to Jade and Rupert and I wish you a lifetime of happiness!

General Comments

The pianist was fantastic to start with Liz explained everything at event city and her website was very helpful. Also Liz was fantastic on the phone explained what type of music would be good . We then supplied a list of music we would like to played and wheb. We then got reply nearly instant explaining that she knew some and that she would learn the rest. The day was perfect because she said she had done a recce of each venue. Everything was in place and the music was perfect everything played. 

Why did you book them?

Because of the value for money and the way she talked to us and explained everything and the piano was really nice

Another great testimonial for Liz Hendry

“Liz is not only a fantastic pianist but is the perfect person to have organising your entertainment at your wedding as she is super calm and stays connected either by phone/text or email. She played most of the songs we requested and tailored where she played to the weather and style of wedding so we were lucky enough to have Liz playing outside. Liz was a big part of making our day magical and playing whilst I walked down the isle I will never forget.”
