Full Description
SInce we started in 2008, we’ve performed at hundreds of weddings and earned a great reputation as talented, professional and reliable musicians. This reputation has allowed us to become preferred suppliers to many of our local wedding venues in our home county of Northamptonshire and the Midlands. We've also received hundreds of glowing reviews and recommendations from our Brides and Grooms along the way, which makes our job the best job in the world!  Our set list covers an extensive mix of traditional, classic and modern day songs and it's growing all the time. From Eva Cassidy to Lady Gaga, Snow Patrol to Ed Sheeran, The Beatles to Rihanna, we have something for everyone. You can even choose your favourites to have a soundtrack that's unique to you and, if we don't already play a certain track, we'll happily learn it for you free of charge. Don't just take our word for it though, we think our music speaks for itself so have a listen to our demos, watch our real life wedding videos and you should definitely come along to one of our ‘Public Showcase Events' to make up your own mind. Our showcases are held every couple of months or so and you can come along to see us in action, hear us performing live, and discuss your wedding or event music ideas with us in person over a cuppa, before you decide whether to book.  We are very proud to offer these sessions as not many other acoustic duo's or wedding bands can offer this We also offer an infectious 4 Piece Live Band and brilliant Wedding DJ/Disco to get everyone up and on the dancefloor during your evening celebrations too. You can book this in addition to the Acoustic Duo meaning we can cover your whole wedding day, in one slick and seamless package.  So if you are looking for sensational live music for your Wedding Ceremony, Drinks Reception, Wedding Breakfast, or perhaps an early evening set to include your First Dance, then let us add the stunning soundtrack to your wedding day.

Absolutely amazing - would recommend whole hearted
Absolutely amazing - would recommend whole heartedly to anyone! Until we went to the showcase evening put on by Taylormade, we weren't sure on the age-old debate of band vs. DJ. We attended with the prospect of them performing as the Acoustic Duo for our wedding ceremony and reception drinks afterwards. But having met Carley and Matt and listened to them perform as the acoustic duo, then hearing them as the live band, we were convinced that all three (acoustic duo, live band and DJ) was the right way to go - and it was so worth it! We honestly couldn't count the number of people on the day who told us how brilliant they were and how much of a difference it made. To have the different kinds of music through the day with the acoustic duo - and in the evening with the live band, it really felt like a proper gig, and the dance floor remained filled all night long. We can't thank Carley and Matt enough for making our day even more special at Crockwell Farm, and would thoroughly recommend anyone looking for wedding music to get in touch with them!

Taylormade are AMAZING, I cannot recommend them highly enough. Performing as the Acoustic Duo or as the Band they are sensational - you need look no further! Carley is so friendly, well organised, professional and super talented. Her voice was amazing from noon through to midnight! The other musicians are all superb too! Thanks for making our wedding so special, being so accommodating and helping Rich & all of the boys with their special performance of my favorite song ' Ain't Nobody'. Everyone at my wedding raved about them. A VERY special band for a special day!

The acoustic duo set was beautiful and one of our
Wow, what can I say?! The band were amazing and everyone loved the music and the dance floor was packed out. The acoustic duo set was beautiful and one of our guests commented that the version of ‘At Last’ was the best he had ever heard. All of our evening guests were entertained all night by the live band and disco music. We've lost count of the guests who told us the band were amazing and we will be sending details to several guests planning events in the near future. Matt and Carley even learned a new song for our first dance as the acoustic duo, which was absolutely perfect. We can’t say enough good things about both the acoustic duo and live band!

Carley has such an amazing beautiful voice she mad
Where do you start with this amazing group of people? We booked our wedding at 4 months’ notice and we had a very clear idea of the type of day we wanted. However, because of the short notice we were worried we might not be able to create exactly what we wanted. After booking the legal formalities we started to look at entertainment. We did some research and came across Taylormade Wedding Band. We watched some trailers and decided they were exactly what we were looking for. However, would they be available at short notice? They were, and you have no idea how grateful we were. From the first contact to the day itself their passion and professionalism has been obvious. Carley is a dream to deal with and filled us with confidence. We went to the showcase and they were even better live than in their online promotion stuff. On the day itself they did so much to create the vibe we were after for our wedding. Carley has such an amazing beautiful voice she made people cry during the ceremony (including the groom!) They worked tirelessly all day to keep the mood and atmosphere perfect and in the evening were amazing. I don’t think the dance floor emptied from the first song to the last. In between Matt did an amazing job with the DJ set and kept the mood exactly as we wanted it. He even turned his hand to tambourine when our boys surprised their mum with a Saxophone piece! Nothing was too much trouble and he even played the Bollywood playlist we asked for. This band was the perfect accompaniment to our wedding day, so hardworking and accommodating but above all brilliant.

Couldn't recommend them highly enough!
I couldn't recommend this band highly enough. Carley was fantastic throughout the entire wedding planning process and on the day itself the band were exceptional. We have had so many positive comments from guests following our wedding day to say how fantastic the band were and how much they had enjoyed their performance. They also learnt our first wedding dance song, which was sung beautifully and was a very personal and special moment for us. Please don't hesitate to book Taylormade Duo and Live Band. Thank you so much for everything, Mr and Mrs Bishop xxx

What is your most memorable wedding?

We were booked by a Groom (Carl) as a surprise for his wife to be (Genna), and he had told her that we were unavailable for her wedding date. On the wedding day at Claydon House in Buckinghamshire, she started walking down the aisle and when she heard us playing, she burst into tears. It nearly set me off too and I only just managed to hold it together enough to finish singing 'Songbird' for her. She sent us a beautiful thank you card afterwards and told us we were "one of her most cherished memories".

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Sophisticated, Stylish, Dedicated, Professional and Friendly

What about your business are you most proud of?

Taking a 'Leap Of Faith' when we started Taylormade back in 2008. Matt and I both quit our day jobs to follow our dream of being professional musicians. We had nothing for a long time but, slowly and surely, we became established and now the hundreds of reviews and recommendations we've received mean we are well and truly on our way! We know we have the best job in the world and I'm so proud that we took that chance!

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

Make sure you meet your wedding suppllier and see their products/service before you commit to booking. For example, head along to one of our Public Showcases where you can see, hear and experience Taylormade live and what we will be like on the day. That way you can have absolute peace of mind in your decision and not feel stressed or anxious leading up to the big day. Please contact us to find out the date for our next Public Showcase.

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

I must admit that I think Matt went all out at our own wedding in Cuba back in 2010. As he wasn't able to play the guitar on his own wedding day, he recorded a beautiful version of The Wedding March by Mendelssohn's on his acoustic guitar for me and I walked up the aisle to himknowing that he had recorded that for this exact moment.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Couples will usually fill in our contact form and we get back to them within 24 hours with our availability and a quote. I also include the dates of our next showcases to see if the couple are interested in coming along. Once the couple have confirmed they would like to go ahead, I put a formal booking agreement together outlining everything that has been spoken about, and this gives the couple peace of mind leading up to the big day (something that we really appreciated when we were planning our own wedding). We ask for a 20% deposit to secure the date and the remaining amount is due just before the wedding. About a week before we have an in depth discussion about the final details - timings, song choices, colour theme, requests etc. Then we turn up on the day and do what we so best! Add a stunning soundtrack to the day as chosen by the Bride and Groom.

What makes a romantic first dance?

A beautiful song with gorgeous lyrics, a great live performance but most importantly staring into each others eyes and feeling like you are the only people in the room.

What is your number one floor-filler?

Well, our acoustic duo plays mostly at Ceremonies and Drinks Reception so i'd have the say the most popular song to walk down the aisle is 'Songbird' by Eva Cassidy. Our number one floor-filler with the 4 Piece Live Band would be Mr Brightside by The Killers. Never fails to get people on the dance floor!

What is the soundtrack to your life?

Our original band called Silverspark. All of our songs are written from the heart so are true to what's going on in our lives at that moment in time. You can listen to Silverspark here https://open.spotify.com/artist/5UQnSGwusVvHweXwHxUzpU
