What a beauty! Loved singing at Steve and Helens wedding, right on the bank of the River Leven in Newby Bridge. The sun shone down as guests drank champagne in the gardens of The Whitewater Hotel, classic Jazz and Swing music played in the background as we all chilled by the river. Heroes of the day were the fantastic staff at the Whitewater Hotel, Tiree Dawson the fabulous photographer and of course the bride and groom and all their lovely guests.. Tiree very kindly sent me these fab photos so you can get a quick peak of the day.. Enjoy

Then it was my turn to get the atmosphere moving during the wedding breakfast. Look at Auntie Bett go, i couldn’t get my mic back!!

The lovely Karen Dawson, Steve’s mum.

The best man/groom’s brother, was really in the swing of things! Nice one John!

Great day, once again a big thanks to Tiree Dawson for these fab photos..

Oh, i’m forgetting the most important part of the day? THE ENTERTAINMENT!!

It was my pleasure to step up and provide the entertainment for the whole day, kicking off with my main man Calvin on sax.

Then over to me to cover toastmastering duties, followed by a 2 sets of swingy magic, one during the wedding the breakfast, then another on the terrace starting with the first dance..It was great to have all the guests all dancing and singing away as the early evening sun shone down on everyone!!

A truly memorable wedding! I wish all the future happiness to the new Mr and Mrs Sumner, and thank them for putting their faith in me to be a part of what was a great wedding..

I truly have a dream job, look at this perfect wedding. My good friend Steven Hargreaves was wed to the lovely Louise on Windermere Air Show day overlooking Bowness Bay in the Lake District. The wedding party actually took place at their home which overlooks the lake! Flashy!!
