Wedding Bush Dance, March 2019

Sorry I haven’t written sooner, we’ve had a busy week with all our family still down in Tassie but we really wanted to say thank you so much for putting on the best bush dance of our lives!! We have had the best feedback, everyone really loved it and had such a great time! The band played so well and your skills at calling made everyone feel welcome and able to have a go – just what we’d hoped for! So thank you very very much!
Thanks so much again and rest assured we will pass on your details should anyone else want to host a bush dance!
All the very best,
