Wedding – Jenna and Peter – The Byre at Inchyra

Jenna and Peter got married in July at The Byre at Inchyra, just outside Perth. Sarah Joy Story’s photos do wonderful justice to the panoramic main room. Thank you Sarah.

The first dance was Real Love Baby by Father John Misty – the second time in as many months that I have played it as a first dance – it is becoming a classic? Jenna is from Boston, USA, so during the course of the evening I played some Pixies, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Dropkick Murphys and Walk this Way. Also in recognition of the bride’s heritage, a Scottish lady (Jenna’s aunt?) came up and asked for Massachusetts by the Bee Gees, which I thought was a lovely idea, though I can confirm that precisely nobody took the dancefloor except the lady and her partner. I hope they still had a magic moment. I was able to salvage the situation by playing, for the first time ever, Billy Ray and Miley back to back.

Other notable incidents included a father-daughter dance (This Dance by Scott Thomas Laughridge) and Uncle Jimmy getting a birthday shout out (I chose the chorus of The Undertones’ Jimmy Jimmy).

A terrific evening with a very fun crowd. Jenna and Peter were so friendly in correspondence and real life. Peter is very tall. He must get that chat a lot. I got a delicious fresh pizza delivered straight to my decks, and I haven’t gone out without the novelty love heart specs since.
