The Bentley Boys had an amazing time providing the entertainment for Jim and Joanne’s wedding this July. We were delighted to be a part of their big day. We cannot get enough of these gorgeous photos by Wedding by Kara. Jim and Joanne’s wedding was a super stylish and elegant affair. The photos tell the story of a couple madly in love on one of the happiest days of their lives.
Jim and Joanne met in Jersey, Channel Islands working for the same company. As Jim is originally from Laois and Joanne from Limerick, having their wedding at home in Ireland was important for the couple.
The picturesque AnnaCarriga Estate, in Killaloe, Co. Clare was the setting and Jim and Joanne expressed their appreciation and enormous heartfelt thanks to owner Jana, who made their special day everything they dreamed of and more. Planning an Irish wedding from another country can prove quite difficult logistically but getting the right fit with your wedding vendors is crucial. In Jim and Joanne’s case they felt that the personal, regular contact from their vendors made all the difference. The couple loved the Bentley Boys’ online booking management system for this reason. By logging onto the secure system, Jim and Joanne could review their booking, communicate with the band, and add their final details, all the while reassured their wedding entertainment was in safe hands!.
Living in Jersey meant that the process of choosing a wedding band was quite a challenge. Working closely with our team, the couple were guided through the process and were delighted with the final result! As Joanne explained.. “Myself and Jim have completley different tastes in music. I love Motown and Jim likes anything but Motown! The Bentley Boys provided such a happy balance. We would have paid any amount of money to have the Bentley Boys play for another 5 hours!”.
The couple also chose the Bentley Boys to provide the pre dinner entertainment. This is always a fantastic way to warm up a venue and get guests in the party mood. Jim & Joanne chose a two-piece jazz ensemble to create a relaxed atmosphere for guests as they arrived to the beautiful venue.
Coming to an agreement on a first dance was also quite difficult for Jim and Joanne given their completely different tastes in music! Beginning with a list of 20 songs, they whittled it down to the one. ‘Home’ by Phillip Phillips was a wonderfully unique choice which the Bentley Boys loved performing for the couple’s first dance.
Jim and Joanne sent us the most lovely message after their wedding. How sweet are these guys?
“An incredible experience. Our day/weekend was everything we hoped for and so much more. I can’t describe how much the band made our day, you were absolutely amazing.
The professional manner in which you deal with your clients is flawless, from day one we had peace of mind.
We just wished that the night wouldn’t end, and our guests are still raving about you.
Magnificent is an understatement.”
Hearty congratulations to you both, and thanks so much for sharing your wedding day with us!
A big thank you once again to Wedding by Kara for these wonderful photos.
