What is your most memorable wedding?
We played for the ceremony and drinks reception in a beautiful converted barn - and the guests loved the songs and started singing along! We love it when that happens
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Classic with a modern twist
What about your business are you most proud of?
Our drive to ensure we provide a totally unique service to all our couples, that's completely tailored to their taste in music!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Start early!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Writing some extra vows during the ceremony as well as reading out the legally required parts.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We'll get an enquiry for a date, so we make sure we're available. We discuss what part of the day they'd like us for and then send over a contract and deposit invoice. After the booking is confirmed we send another form for some further details and song requests - but we ask that they fill this in around a month before their wedding as we're adding to our repertoire list all the time and wouldn't want them to miss out on anything!
What makes a romantic first dance?
We don't usually get to stay for this part of the wedding but we'd say - a song that means a lot to you as a couple, so that every time you hear it from then on you'll be reminded of that special moment :)
What is your number one floor-filler?
Uptown Funk
