What is your most memorable wedding?

We recently did a wedding in the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth where the wedding couple wanted the quartet to play music for a sing along. We have of course played hymns for a church wedding but this was a civil wedding ceremony. The music requested was 'Happy Together' by the Turtles. Despite our initial misgivings about this the sing along went down really well!!!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Friendly, personal, professional, competitive, experienced.

What about your business are you most proud of?

We offer great music at an affordable price.

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

Don't leave booking the music for your wedding to the last minute, especially if your wedding is during the summer months.

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

Bespoke ceramic tile place settings for all the guests.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

From receiving your enquiry we will make contact and discuss your requirements and then provide you with a fee quotation. If this is acceptable we will issue a contract and then discuss the music that you would like to be played. If we don't have your favourite piece of music we will do our best to get a commercial arrangement, failing that we are able to provide an arranging service. Once all the details have been settled we will keep in touch and of course see you on the day!!

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

Take That just love their music.
