REPLAY Wedding and Party Band in France
Summer is rolling into autumn in South West France and today brought a welcome breeze and a coolness that we've not had for many weeks... and it was really rather lovely!
Having travelled up and down France over the last few months it was also rather lovely to have a wedding close to home, in the beautiful Dordogne valley, in the rather aptly named Valley of the Chateaux.
The three 'REPLAYERS' live in the Dordogne and if you asked Colleen what was her most favourite spot she would say the view of the Dordogne Valley from Beynac Chateau. You can see the river and the historical and magnificent Chateau Castlenaud... you can see Chateau Marquayssac with its world famous gardens... you can see Chateau Millande, once home to the amazing Josephine Baker... and of course you can look down on the beautiful village of Beynac... once home of Richard the Lion Heart.
Today's wedding venue looked across at all of these fabulous and amazing chateaux and across the Dordogne valley and it just made us feel better being there!
Apparently we're not alone in our adoration because Chateau de Lacoste was listed as a French National Monument in 1970.
Our lovely couple today had booked the band for their afternoon reception, they'd asked for music and a microphone to be made available during their meal and they'd asked for our party set in the evening followed by an hour of disco... so it was going to be a long day.
We set up under a tree and played an hour and a half of great music whilst family and friends enjoyed a G&T under the Dordogne sun... a Gin Bar was a first for REPLAY!
Whilst the wedding guests dined with their fabulous view, the band enjoyed a rather lovely feast with the wedding planners. Once our dinner was over we made the final adjustments to the PA, having moved it from the garden to the evening party room inside the chateau.
At 10:00pm our lovely couple danced under the stars and by the light of several dozen sparklers! And then the party moved inside and this party crowd sang and danced the night away.
We really had an amazing day at Chateau de Lacoste and this was down to two things... an amazing venue and amazing people; so thank you for letting REPLAY share your day!!!
p.s. did we mention the car?
