We cannot recommend Les highly enough
We cannot recommend Les highly enough. It really was such a pleasure to watch and listen to her perform at our wedding. She has a great talent and is a lovely, warm person too. I would encourage anyone to snap her up for any special occasion. You won’t be disappointed. Thank you, Les, for being part of our day and helping us create some wonderful memories

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I have so many memorable weddings but all for different reasons. One that stands out was a London Wedding which was Asian. The bride was beautiful and the guests were in the most vivid coloured saris. They were so very friendly.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Classy, Romantic, Memorable, Vintage, Quirky

What about your business are you most proud of?

I think the fact that I can offer such a wide repertoire on a number of instruments.

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

Choose the music carefully as it will set the ambiance for the whole day. people will remember it after the day has gone. You are best to book someone professional who has high standards of perfection.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Many of my weddings work through email, although if you are nearby then we can have a performance session at my home. If you cannot do this then I send my own list of recommended music for your day, complete with listening links.

What makes a romantic first dance?

The music! Also get some first dance lessons and the guests will love to watch!

What is your number one floor-filler?

As I am not a band, I am never playing for first dance but the favourites are Canon in D and Sweet Child of mine! Also the swing singing is also very popular for drinks.

What is the soundtrack to your life?

It would probably be something like Wiegenlied by R Strauss! <3
