Religious ceremony :
We take care of getting in touch with the priest before the big day to run through the finer details of the ceremony and any religious songs that we will be accompanying. It is vital for us to ensure you have the best songs to make your ceremony intimate and beautiful in every way.
We are here to guide you through these choices with the upmost flexibility and care. Do you have a special song that you wish to be played during the ceremony or as you walk down the aisle? A niece that plays the violin who would like to be accompanied with a piano? No problem, we can learn this especially for you or if it is a piece of orchestra music we have the necessary equipment to play the downloaded track that you send us.
We have a number of classical pieces such as «Ave Maria», «Amazing Grace» or piano pieces by Ludovico Einaudi and the wedding march to name a few examples.
Our music will create a warm and romantic feel throughout your ceremony. For the exit we often suggest songs that inspire happiness and joy. Jane with her experience in organ playing in churches can accompany any religious songs should you wish.
Cocktail reception :
We provide 2 to 3 hours of music during your cocktail reception. You can choose the songs that you like from our setlist which is adapted for all generations old and young. Our music is a mixture of elegant and modern and we adapt ourselves perfectly to the atmosphere you wish to have on your special day.
During our first set we can ensure a cosy and romantic ambiance with our second set which will provide you with an uplifting fun vibe to get your guests into the mood for the evening. You and your guests can even join us on stage should you please. We love these little moments with our guests which are often the most memorable.
Non religious ceremony :
Just like the religious ceremonies, the atmosphere you are looking to portray will be at the forefront of the song choices we make with you to ensure that you really get that wow factor during your special exchanges together.
We will ensure to be in touch with the celebrant and witnesses to make sure every detail has been thought of and prepared. You can count on us and our years of experience to help you choose the right songs for the day and when to play them. We are happy to guide you should you wish us to.
Other services :
To avoid you having to pay extra to rent equipment and because we know you already have a lot to organise for the day we offer to lend out our microphones for any speeches/ songs during the cocktail reception.
We also have a mini cable jack to plug in your phones or tablets to our speakers should you need to play a special song.
Our focus is to be flexible and adapt to your specific needs, an example would be accompanying you on the piano or guitar on a song.
Our spontaneity and extensive experience in this field is really what makes us able to create a bond with your guests to ensure everyone has the best day!
Come and meet us!
It’s sometimes hard to have that gut feeling without a face to face meeting with those helping to make your special day extra special.
We would love to show you what we can do musically as well as meet you and get to know YOU.
Come and join us at home on the sofa where you can have a mini live concert over a cup of tea or alternatively we can organise a video call to do this also.
