FAQ

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Elegant, Versatile, Unobtrusive, Bespoke.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Music is such a personal thing; what one person likes, someone else may not and so what I'm most proud of is that each wedding I play at is musically different. I'm able to meet with you in person and really create a set list that you love, with all your favourite songs in. Anything I don't know, I'll learn, just for you; meaning your day is completely bespoke.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Always meet your suppliers, where possible! Meeting face to face is really important to covey your thoughts and ideas for your big day and to build a personal connection with the person who will have a small or big part to play in one of the most important days of your life!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After the initial enquiry, I'll always try and arrange a 1-1 consultation with every couple in a location that is mutually accessible. There, we can discuss ideas and I can offer repertoire suggestions. Most importantly, this is the time where you have an opportunity to hear me play and ask any questions you may have.

What makes a romantic first dance?

Every first dance is a completely different, intimate and special experience for each couple. There really is no hard and fast rule for a romantic first dance, it's all about the personal touch!

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

The Jersey Boys!

What is the soundtrack to your life?

Currently: The Greatest Showman!
