You helped us so much!
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding. You helped to make our day absolutely perfect. Everyone commented on how beautiful it was to have not only your music during the ceremony but also after. We couldn’t have asked for anything more, thank you. Also to say thank you in making the whole planning and logistics of the day so simple. You put my mind at rest the entire time during both the planning and the actual day and made it all so easy.

Thank you
Hi Tamilla, I just wanted to say thank you so much for your incredible playing on Saturday. Everyone said how amazing you were and the registrars were very complimentary. They told me how wonderful your playing was before I even heard you. You made our ceremony really special and we can't thank you enough.

Guides for Brides Finalist

What is your most memorable wedding?

Wedding of Susan and John Barnett. Just shows that you could fall in love at any age!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Elegant, sophisticated, genuine, emotive and precise.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Reliable service, clear communication, nothing is too much to ask. I always go an extra mile for the future couple, it is my signature feature.

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

Start early, time just flies nowadays, you don’t want to get stressed last minute.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

When the groom has made a surprise to his wife to be by booking and paying for the music ( me!)

Describe your typical process with a couple.

When I get an email, I reply straight away to acknowledge the receipt. Then I clarify what’s needed on the day and send a quote. If booked, I send a contract alongside with some music suggestions. We work on the music list for the day until everyone is happy ( sometimes I had to change songs last minute for change of heart in the bride). I am very quick to learn new pieces , so it is only a pleasure to make everyone happy.

What makes a romantic first dance?

It really depends on the couple’s taste. I’ve been known to play November rain and music from God Father with equally great success

What is your number one floor-filler?

Rather be by Clean bandit

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

Forget the past, it is undoubtedly Clean bandit

What is the soundtrack to your life?
