On the 8th of May 2015, Bumblebee Honey were called by the owner of Kilshane House, Jane De Roquancourt, to see if we would assist them in hosting the best wedding competition to ever be held in the country. The band had already built up a great relationship with Kilshane House as they have played there countless times and they come highly recommended by the staff at the dream wedding venue.
The event was run by Confetti Magazine and Today FM’s Louise Duffy Show; the prize was a dream wedding worth 25k. We were delighted to be asked and we jumped on board. Our job was to provide the entertainment for the wedding and also to play on-air during the live show at Kilshane House at the finale of the competition.
It was a truly amazing day in Kilshane House, four couples went head to head to see which couple were to be the lucky winners. Bumblebee Honey played three slots consisting of a rock-n-roll medley then they played “Thinking of You” ( Paul Weller version ) and ended the show with “Thinking out Loud” by man of the moment – Ed Sheeran. Everyone was dancing for the rock n roll medley which set a brilliant atmosphere for the rest of the two hour show. While we played the last song to end the show the lucky winners Seamus & Gillian practiced for their first dance.
Feel free to have a listen to the podcasts on Today FM to hear the show and listen to The Bumblebee Honey Wedding Band live on air.
We look forward to playing at Seamus & Gillian’s big day next year.
