Apollo Soul wedding band Birmingham were hired to perform a wedding at Mill Barns for the new Mr ad Mrs smith on August 26th. It was a beautiful day the sun was shinning and all the wedding guests were ready to party. The venue that the couple had chosen was Mill Barns, Mill Barns is a relatively new wedding venue but has shot up one of the most sought after venues in the UK in such a very short time span. Overall Mill Barns is a stunning wedding venue, upon entering the building you have a beautiful arched ceiling that really creates a spacious look to the venue, then there is a big stair case that takes you in to the main bar area. The day was very sunny so all the wedding guests congregated outside on the patio, the outside area of Mill Barns is definitely one of the venues greatest assets, the whole patio is made out of beautiful wooden oak, the lake outside also gives the guests a great atmosphere and it kind of makes you feel like you are on Holliday in a weird way it creates a real calm feeling atmosphere.
Mill Barns also allows the bride and the groom to provide their own alcohol for the drinks reception and ceremony, they allow this free of charge because it is a no corkage venue, of course they have a bar there for the evening in case the bride and groom do not want to provide their own alcoholic drinks.
The ceremony was set to start at 1.30pm so all the guests started to take their seats ready for the bride to walk in. The song a thousand years by Christina Peri started playing, the bridesmaids started to walk down the isle first, they were dressed in blue dresses with white flowers in their hands, after that the bride walked down the isle in a beautiful white dress with an open back.
After the ceremony it was time for the drinks reception, Corey and James from Apollo Soul had set up on the patio outside ready to entertain the guests until the speeches were ready to start, their set was vocals guitar and an electric style drum and they played numbers such as Ed Sheeran shape of you, Whitney Houston how will I know and Tracey Chapman fast car.
After the drinks reception the speeches took place, while this was happening Apollo Soul started loading in the equipment for the show on the evening. Once all the speeches were finished and all the food was out the way it was time to get the party started. Apollo soul entered the stage at 7.30 the play the first dance, the bride and groom had chosen the song wonderful tonight by Eric Clapton, the male vocalist from Apollo soul took the lead for the this one. Immediately after the first dance Apollo Soul wasted no time and came straight in with big upbeat songs for the duration of the night, keeping the dance floor full and entertained until midnight.
