The Rats made their way north of Hadrians Wall, and to the beautiful hamlet town of Alnwick, famous for Alnwick Castle of Harry Potter fame! But instead of rocking the castle we had been booked to perform in a tree house…

When we were originally asked to play a gig in a treehouse, we were a bit concerned as to how we could fit everything in…but how wrong could we be. Alnwick Treehouse is huge, and consists of a beautiful restaurant in the trees, and was a sublime location for Sophie and Amanda’s special day.

The venue really lived up to all expectations, the adults loved the scenery, kids loved the rope bridges and we loved the performing space! When getting married in a treehouse there is much to consider (ladders, ropes, moss!) but this Tree House Wedding was more reminiscent of the Ewok’s house from Star Wars, but without Chewbacca or Luke Skywalker… The evening was unbelievable, we played a stripped back version of ‘I can’t help falling in love with you’ followed by our full set, and the crowd were great, and never left the dance floor!

The day was perfect, the venue, the food, the company and the band. After a relaxing afternoon of food and wine, The Love Rats were a perfect finish to the day. They blew us away with their version of our first dance request, and afterwards had the place bouncing! Thank you so much-We’ll never forget it! Sophie & Amanda

If you’re still looking for a venue for your big day, check out the Alnwick Tree House, a beautiful venue and great team.

Sophie and Amanda-Huge congratulations, and thanks for letting us be part of your magical day! Love The Love Rats x
