The beautiful Trump Turnberry Hotel in Ayr was the setting for a wedding reception I recently performed at. This luxury resort on the Ayrshire coast boasts a championship golf course, a spa, several restaurants, bars, and stunning views over the Firth of Clyde.
The bride-to-be had requested a list of beautiful songs from across many different eras; from old-time classics like ‘I only have eyes for you‘ right through to more modern numbers like Amy Winehouse’s version of ‘Valerie’. She chose the very popular ‘At Last’ for the first dance, and a smashing finishing number for me to add into my set – ‘Enjoy Yourself’ by Jools Holland and Prince Buster. I’d heard this many times on Simon Mayo’s BBC Radio 2 show, and never realised it was originally a 1940s song!
The hotel was very plush, and the staff and event organisers were super-helpful in getting me to the right place and making sure I had everything I needed to set up for the show. Our function room was the perfect setting, with gorgeous views across the golf course.
It was a lovely afternoon and the happy couple looked superb. I wish them all the best for the future.
