Aynhoe Park

We had a fun day last week playing at Luke and Kirsty’s wedding at Aynhoe Park.

Aynhoe Park, is a Grade I listed 17th-century country house rebuilt after the English Civil War on the southern edge of the stone-built village of Aynho, Northamptonshire, England. It overlooks the Cherwell valley that divides Northamptonshire from Oxfordshire

It was home to a noble family for centuries who would have once had a Downton Abbey-style team of servants, but today a country pile in Oxfordshire has a rather different more eccentric owner.

Aynhoe Park, near Banbury and the Cotswolds, is now owned by self-made multi-millionaire James Perkins who has decorated the large property using his eclectic taste, treating the classical-looking rooms as though they’re an avant garde art gallery.

We had a fun time looking at the collection of taxidermy around the house. This is the first time we’ve played underneath a stuffed giraffe!

Kirsty and Luke had selected a nice range of repertoire for their ceremony. Kirsty walked down the aisle to The Beatles’ Here Comes The Sun. They signed the register while we played Elvis Presley – cant help falling in love with you
and Take that – million love songs. The couple exited to the sounds of Jackie Wilson Higher and Higher.

All in all a great day! Thank you for booking us!
