We offer a free consultation at our studio in Belfast & are always available to answer questions via email, phone or Skype meaning we are there to help every step of the way. We have a wide range range of repertoire from classical music through to current pop favourites and our arrangement service means that you can have your special song - even if it's not on our repertoire list. We are always happy to help with musical suggestions and advise on when music can be best enjoyed during your ceremony or mass. We can provide music for hymns that you might want to sing and can put you in touch with professional singers who can be booked through us. Alternatively we can accompany whoever you might have booked yourselves, liaising directly with them. Our "Jewel in the Crown" is undoubtedly our "USQ Jukebox". We provide this free of charge during your drinks reception, providing song lists made up of our pop repertoire from which you and your guests can choose what we perform next! :-) We have various packages which cover the different stages of the day and can also be booked for specific times (2.5,3 hours etc). Our most popular package is our ceremony/reception package which provides 30 minutes of music beforehand, all of your ceremony music and then for the duration of your drinks reception up until your meal is called. This option helpfully allows for an extra 30 minutes at the end just in case things are running behind schedule for any reason - and of course includes our "USQ Jukebox".

What is your most memorable wedding?
Ainé and Andrew's wedding up in Portrush was one of our favourites for several reasons - there was lots of beautiful for us to perform, we were joined by soprano Rebekah Coffey AND because we performed during the all important proposal (on Carrick-A-Rede Island!!!). A delicate operation - not least carrying all our stands, music and instruments over the rope bridge(!) :-) This is featured on our in one of our videos - have a look!!

Describe your typical process with a couple.
After the initial enquiry we are on hand to talk through various options then once the booking has been confirmed timings, music and even packages can be decided at a later date. We offer a free consultation either in person at our studio or via email/phone/skype to chat through any details and/or answer any questions. As we get nearer the day we confirm the running order - we ask for the venue contact so on the day if needed we can liaise directly with them. Then, on the day just sit back and enjoy!
