Describe your typical process with a couple.
After the initial enquiry has been made, I email all of my details to the proposed client. Once a booking fee is made to secure the date, I invite the couple to discuss music further and to see if the couple have any other questions they'd like to ask of me.
About 1 month before the wedding date itself, I contact the couple, just to 'touch base' and to go through any final musical details that need tweaking.

Just enjoying the moment together and not making it a feature length choreographed film.
