Jam Jars:

An Artistic Choice?

 

On the 13th of September, Sara and Dave McGibbon kitted out their back yard with a marquee, tables, chairs and a surfeit of food and drink for their 50 or so guests. The weather stayed good and we had a lovely time entertaining the folks wth some acoustic music, while just of to our right, a baby stared at Mat with the kind of piercing blue eyes normally reserved for a horror movie...

Our second set was affectionatly gatecrashed by Sara's father along with two cohorts in full party attire – complete with inflatable instruments – who proceeded down the aisle to rapturous applause and big laughs. They provided us with some wicked backing vocals. And still the baby stared...

As our show was coming to an end and we prepared to say goodbye, the crowd began to sing along to Sloop John B. It's great when this happens and we loved every minute of those last few songs, assuming it wouldn't get any better. Then, out of nowhere, the baby got up and danced! Like some internet meme, she was out of her high chair and bopping and grooving to our music in a way that would have made Brittany Spears blush. That image will never leave us as long as we live and Mat was relieved to find that he wasn't having his soul judged – because frankly no one should get a look in there.

Thanks Sara And Dave for having us at your awesome wedding ceremony we particularly enjoyed drinking diet coke out of decorative jam jars – an artistic choice, or a mix up with the guest numbers? We will, perhaps, never know.
