Batucada’s most eligible bachelor gets hitched!
It’s no secret that some of Batucada’s well-connected ladies had been looking out for a suitable match for Dr Phill for a while. In the end though, he did it without our help, and met the very lovely Dr Bron, and a perfect match ensued. Hooray!
We were completely honoured to be asked to perform at their wedding, held at the Boatshed on Wellington’s waterfront. Our role was to keep Phill company until the bride arrived, and then to play her up the stairs and into the Boatshed itself.
We were planning to wait outside and start playing once Bron appeared, but the slightly torrential rain rather put a stop to that plan. Instead we waited at the top of the stairs, dressed in our wedding finery, ready to form a guard of honour and drum Bron through to her groom.
Dazzer did the directing honours, we played our little hearts out with massive grins on our faces, and the bride looked lovely. Her flower girls, complete with flowered bicycles, were super-cute. Dr Phill looked every inch the (very proud) husband-to-be.
The wedding ceremony (which we were all invited to) was just fabulous, with a highlight being the mass sing-along of the Monkees’ song I’m a Believer, which was pretty much the most appropriate song I can imagine we could sing from Dr Phil, to Dr Bron. Just fantastic.
The reception was great, the venue fab, the cake spectacular, the speeches all just the right length and hilarious, and we danced until we couldn’t dance any more. What a perfect day. Congratulations Dr Phill and Dr Bron! May you be happy forever.
