Like many of our beautiful wedding couples, Clairly and Daniel (affectionately known as Clanners), requested a specific song for their first dance. We met up to discuss what type of arrangement they would like and quickly their one song became the following 7!
Wagon Wheel – Darius Rucker (First Dance)
Romeo and Juliet – Dire Straits
Sweet Thing – Van Morrison
Patience – Guns N’ Roses
Landslide – Fleetwood Mac
London Still – The Waifs
Fisherman Blues – The Waterboys
Admittedly, we were skeptical about playing Wagon Wheel as a first dance, but as soon as we started playing it was obvious why they had chosen it. It was the perfect song choice and Clanners shared a beautiful moment. When the guests joined in, the dance floor lit up and the atmosphere became electric. Our musicians decided to repeat the chorus 5 times, an impossible task with a recording, as the crowd were loving the vibe we had created. Quickly followed by Fisherman Blues, it was the ideal way to get the party started.
Varley stings were able to take this wedding reception to the next level with a playlist curated to suit this incredible couple. We’re looking forward to performing for Clanners again at their future relationship milestones.
