Give us an example?
One bride walked down the aisle to the triumphant sounds of a brass group playing Mumford & Sons in the style of the Mendelssohn Wedding March, while we’ve also surprised a 50th birthday boy with a choir by singing his favourite Bill Withers songs accompanied by double bass. We have over 10 years’ experience of organising people’s favourite songs to be performed at special occasions exactly how they want, in venues as diverse as the Sage, Gateshead, a marquee in a family garden and even an Alpine chalet.
So I don’t have to have classical music?
Exactly. Of course, if you want us to sing a traditional anthem by Mozart as well, we can do that.
Could it be a surprise?
Definitely. We've found that organising a choir to sing your loved one’s favourite song at a ceremony is a very popular and extremely moving surprise.
So how does it work?
You tell us which songs you would like to have at your ceremony and the type of music group you'd like to play it. Anything is possible. Our pool of available musicians is vast, so you could have an unaccompanied choir, a brass group, a string ensemble, a jazz band, a rock band, an opera singer, an organist... even a full symphony orchestra if space allows! And because every performance is unique, you can have exactly what you want.
Exactly what we want? Really?
Yes, really. If you want to walk down the aisle to a mix of Flower of Scotland and Swing Low Sweet Chariot played on brass, we can do it. If you want your favourite soap opera theme sung by a choir, that's fine. Do you want to walk out of the ceremony to the sounds of an orchestra playing your favourite Foo Fighters song? Or maybe Taylor Swift is more your thing. Whatever your taste in music, we can arrange the perfect version, performed by the perfect ensemble. We even recently had a famous opera singer performing the Chesney Hawkes classic 'The One and Only' in the style of Nessun Dorma!
Do you organise the musicians as well?
Yes, we can do, but we don't have to. If you just want the arrangement because you have your own musicians, that's fine.
Can you also organise a string quartet, wedding band and DJ?
Absolutely. We know some of the best in the business, just tell us what you want.
I'm not sure what song to choose. Can you write a song for me about my loved one?
Yes, absolutely. If you give us some details about them (eg likes, dislikes, quirks, special moments) our professional song-writing team can compose a unique song just for you, in any style you like!
I've written a song about my loved one. Can you arrange this to be performed by a choir or soloist?
Yes we can! You choose: we can arrange for a professional singer to perform it, along with instruments of your choice, or if you prefer, you can sing/play it along with our musicians. You choose.
What about copyright?
We don't begin work on an arrangement before we've licenced it with the song's publishers for a one-off performance. We know all the main publishers, so we can get the legality sorted quickly and easily.
It all sounds great. Where do I go from here?
