Kerry & John Craig
For my first visit back to the land of work I had a visit to Archerfield House for the wedding reception of Kerry & John Craig. This is an amazing venue with a function room on the first floor.
Arrival and Prep
Since this was my first gig back after a long break due to that C-word, I arrived at 1815 for a 2100 start. Better to make sure I have enough time to get things all working correctly before the main event. For the most part, there were very few issues considering there were multiple OS and software updates in the past 18 months and my propensity to forget things. I had previously tested as much as I could but no better time for a test than when everything comes together for an event. A slight issue with DMX control but I found a temporary workaround until I could get stuck into it.
Kerry, John, and the guests arrived at about 2130 to begin the evening activities starting with cutting the wedding cake.
Onto the first dance which was the classic John Legend song All Of Me. The bride and groom start the dance together for the photographs before waving all guests to join them on the dancefloor.
The first dance was followed by the very keen audience getting right into the dancing. It has been a while for us all and they were ready to party!

In the end, we had a great night, brief but great. Normally I play much later than midnight at this venue but the rather unnecessary restrictions due to a few Sars Cov II infections meant we had to abide by the early finishing time.
Thank you again Kerry & John for an amazing return to wedding performing.
Best wishes to you both.
