Here at R2 Events, we are privileged to have a great working relationship with some of the best wedding suppliers and businesses in Cornwall. Lots of these are quality wedding venues that take the time to recommend us to couples looking for a professional DJ service.
So when Lianne and Rachel got in touch with us regarding their reception at one such venue, we started to get very excited about what promised to be a fabulous Spring wedding.
Trevenna know a thing or two about weddings, with over 150 celebrations taking place each year at this luxury barn complex, tucked away between Bodmin and Liskeard on the edge of the moors at St Neot in Cornwall.
The brides chose to have their celebrations at Trevenna because it offers exclusive hire of the barns and accommodation for 2 days, meaning friends and family from both the UK and Australia could stay on site, catch up and relax.
Evening entertainment takes place in the “threshing barn” and is a fantastic space to dance the night away, ideally situated between the stunning marquee area and the all important bar!

The couple’s first dance was a beautiful piano love song from Alicia Keys, aptly titled Never Felt This Way and was accompanied by plenty of gazing into each others eyes, smiling and twirling.
Following the captivating start to the party, we increased the energy on the dancefloor, taking inspiration from the newlyweds music tastes.
We enjoy a good dance, love a bit of 90’s and 00’s tunes, as well as things in the charts right now, so a good mix of that would be great.
And a good mix is exactly what they got. with some fantastically unpredictable requests from their guests, including dropping the “sex bomb” for a Tom Jones loving grandparent!
Music and singing are obviously important to Rachel, as witnessed by her emotional vocal performance during their ceremony.
So when we were approached later in the night and asked to play “Turn Back Time”, and to hand over the microphone, we knew we were in for an awesome rendition of Cher’s classic rock ballad!
It was obvious that these guys were totally in love with each other and having such engaging guests present helped make the night a really memorable one.
So who better to sum up the finale of this magical party than the couple themselves…
“A particular highlight for us both was when one of our favourite songs came on at the end of the night – All of Me by John Legend.
We danced together, our friends and family formed a circle and danced around us finishing it off with a huge group hug.
A perfect end to a perfect day, our very own love bubble!”
