We always set up an initial zoom call with the couple in order to learn a bit more about them, their overall ideas for the wedding. In relation to music we discuss their musical tastes, ideas as regards to type of entertainment and budget. This is followed up with an email to the couple setting out all of the acts we believe would be a suitable match , given their requirements and budget. The couple will then get back to us as regards to who they would like to perform. There is further telephone / zoom correspondence between us and the couple as regards to the details of a set list and also whether a personalised touch such as a curated song is something the couple would like. The logistics as regards to the event venue and timings will also be confirmed . Our performers are always kept in the loop by us as regards to what the couple would like to ensure their special day is fabulous.
