Our first wedding of spring (or is it summer now?) recently took place at Crathorne Hall near Yarm. Debs and Chris had asked us to come along and entertain their guests, and we were more than happy to oblige!
Yorkshire isn’t short of amazing country house hotels, and Crathorne sits up there with the best of them. It’s been a few years since we last visited, but the atmosphere was as relaxed and welcoming as we remembered it.
There was no first dance so we had to tempt everyone on to the dance floor at the start of the night. Thankfully everyone was up for a party, so we didn’t need to try too hard! Because we try to make every night unique, we had learned one song as a request for our happy couple – we had a huge blast playing We Built This City by Starship, and it was great to see the reaction it received.
The groom’s friends were in charge of the music for the rest of the night, and we had a great laugh with them as they chopped and changed the playlist and even showed us a few records we hadn’t heard!
