Jiggered Ceilidh Band at Kilconquhar Castle wedding!

Simon and Lisa recently tied the knot and their wedding celebrations were in Kilconquhar Castle Estate. This was a new venue for Jiggered- always a treat to visit somewhere we've never performed and the journey to Fife in the sun was bathed in glorious sunshine. 

Simon and Lisa had a last minute change to their first dance, opting for "Accidentally in Love". After this, the ceilidh got underway and the guests had their chance to shine on the dancefloor...they didn't disappoint. Memorable moments incuded the Folla Reel getting its debut with Gemma calling and us slipping "Cotton Eye Joe" into Strip the Willow- it's a favourite of the bride and groom! By the end of the night, even the waitresses were dancing along!!

Stovies at the break finished off with the finest wedding madeira cake you'll ever taste. Thanks, Linda!

A lovely evening with some old friends and one or two new ones....we wish the Dewars all the best for the future.

Jiggered Ceilidh Band: Wedding at St John's Town of Dalry

Jiggered Ceilidh Band: Wedding at St John's Town of Dalry

This was a belter of a ceilidh! 

Tom and Clare were getting married in St John's Town of Dalry (near Castle Douglas). The Town Hall was a lovely venue for their big day. And it was a joy to be involved!

The new Mr and Mrs Carpenter danced their first dance to our version of Sam Cooke's "What a wonderful world". Gemma did a brilliant job with this and I managed to grudgingly sign the lyrics "don't know much about trigonometry....don't know much about algebra....don't know what a slide rule is for" (don't tell pupils from my Maths class about this!!). 

Great music. Great venue. Great atmosphere. And Tom coordinated a round of applause for us at the end of the evening. Another happy Jiggered customer!

All the best for the future Tom and Clare.
