A beautiful folk wedding

Heather and James are great friends of The Hessle Ceilidh Band and often play with us at gigs. Heather is Liz our whistle and pipe player’s daughter and we were delighted when she asked us to play at their wedding held at Dene Park Wedding Venue near Beverley . There was a wedding folk session, Belly Dance and Ceilidh. Here are some images and videos from the event to give you a flavour of a truly folky wedding.
