Mr Jason Hart - Guest Blogger

A great blog entry from the fabulous and sensational Mr Jason Hart who we worship and adore!!!!!!!! 

I've been working on new songs this week following a string of first dance song requests. I've had requests from from Take that to the Foo Fighters. 
My personal favourite has to be Fyfe Dangerfield "she's always a woman" which I've been asked for a lot recently, also Michael Buble "Everything"
is often requested and also the wonderful "make you feel my love" by Adele is a scorching tune, soon to be learned! 

I've already been totally amazed at a handful of wedding venues this year, but my top three for 2010/2011 has to be
The Monastry in Manchester (pictured below) quite literally a monastery, rebuilt with love care and attention and restored to it's former glory. I have been fortunate to
sing in some nice venues but the acoustics in this place were simply breathtaking and the staff were the best, repeat best I've ever worked with, due in no small part to the fact they carried my equipment in, parked my car and made me a cup of tea. Wonderful stuff!

The Merchant adventurers Hall- York The band were booked for a wedding two weeks ago at this venue and before we even set up our equipment the bride and groom 
were dancing. The venue is a beautiful Tudor relic, packed to the rafters with suits of armour, tapestries and on this night,  two hundred guests dancing on the tables. We
had a wonderful night and to top it off, the father of the bride returned at twelve-midnight with two hundred big mac meals! It was like feeding time at the zoo, I've never
seen anything like it, amazing fun, it really was, especially for a secret Mcdonalds lover like me, and also Barry our keyboard player who I noticed ate two ;-)

Shottle Hall - Derbyshire- I think Shottle is a wonderful venue and I could go on and on about the marquee, the food, the location, the view etc etc, but really, the people
that run it and work there are it's best selling point, I love returning there.

My favourite wedding this year has to be Alison and Paul's at Makeney Hall. I was asked to sing Beatles songs during the ceremony, and play acoustic songs during the
drinks reception. In the evening the band arrived and we played two sets and D.J's until midnight. We had a lovely day, infact it felt like the first day of spring, the sun was out
and the birds were tweeting. Just want to say well done to Alisons daughter for singing during the meal and also singing the first dance-wonderful stuff!!

I've been working alongside Tillyboo Events for the last couple of years and I'm excited to mention that I'm now available for bookings around the midlands
thanks to Sarah effectively saving me from driving all over the country to sing! So if you're planning an event at The Priest House, Makeney Hall, Breadsall Priory or any number of wonderful venues around the midands then get in touch and we can make sure you have a wonderful night with all of your favourite songs :-)

See you soon !



live entertainment for your wedding or function full of number one songs you can sing and dance to.

The benefits of having a wedding planner On The Day?

Many people assume that a wedding coordinator is an unnecessary expense, but having that reassurance on the day to know that you have entrusted somebody whom knows you and knows every aspect of your big day is priceless. 

We work along side your venue looking after all of the front of house elements leaving your venue to concentrate on the service, food and drink requirements.

It really is peace of mind for all of you brides, knowing that not only you but your family and friends can sit back and enjoy the day that you have waited and planned a long time for having a member of our Tillyboo team to look after you through those final stages.

your wedding suppliers to confirm all final arrangements.

Oversight and Placement of D├ęcor - From place cards to candles and favours to guest books, this includes oversight and placement of any and all of the items not handled by a specific supplier.

You are a star and I can't thank you enough!

Tillyboo Events coordinate Sarah and Doms Wedding at Prestwold Hall

Last Friday was the wedding of Sarah and Dominic’s wedding day at the beautiful Prestwold Hall. 
The ceremony took place in the church within the grounds of Prestwold Hall, it was truly stunning!
Prestwold Hall with Maverick hosted a wonderful reception and wedding breakfast. The food was delicious!

The Theme was set in stunning Golds, Bowns and Pinks - inspired by the festive season.
Sarah and Dom left no tiny detail out and EVERYBODY noticed what great lengths they had gone too. 
Tillyboo Events were hired by Sarah and Dom as Wedding Planners to coordinate the day and to ensure everything ran smoothly for them. It was an 18 hour long day but a fantastic day was had by all and the end result was so worth it! 

With unique ideas the celebrations were amazing and we were so glad to be a part of the couples wedding day.

A big thank you to the wonderful and amazing photographer Mr Crash Taylor whom  captured the day perfectly as always, we class him as a wonderful friend and a sensational photographer. Big thanks also to his assistant Emma!

Royal Mail - Smilers :-)

Just thought I would repeat an old post ... that you should know about!

A great way to start the wedding off is these amazing Royal Mail Smilers :0)

Royal Mail have being doing these personalised photo stamps (or Smilers as they like to call them) for a good few years now but is amazing how few people have come across them.  They are great finishing touch for your wedding photos or your thank you cards.  
The process really is easy peasy.  Just visit the Smilers section of the Royal Mail website, upload a photo, choose a stamp design and then order online in sheets of 20.  We thinks its so worth the cost for that little touch of originality. 

Wedding App for your I Phone

As a bride-to-be you probably get asked often how long it is until the "big day." 

Well now with an application available for your iPhone, you can give them a precise answer in response. The application called Wedding Day, is a program that counts the years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and even seconds until you say "I Do."

Wedding Day app continues to work even after you say your vows, by tracking how long you have been married. Down to the second! Download it for your husband-to-be and he'll never forget an anniversary. 

Since your iPhone or iPod Touch is always with you, the countdown is only a click away. 

Wedding Day is a real time tool and available on the iPhone App Store.
