What event planners say about our suppliers


Massive thanks to the band Claire Louise for their amazing performance at our wedding. They were really brilliant and did a great job. The best thing about them was their music and the great voice. Everyone present at the wedding was highly impressed by the performance and was talking about them. I will definitely recommend Clair Louise to any one for any event. It was a great pleasure to deal with and heard them singing.


Thanks for making my birthday party that amazing - you were an excellent choice!


The first big ask was ‘please play this song that no one has ever heard of as our first dance’. And they played it perfectly. The second thing was our style of music in between live sets, we didn’t want cheese, YMCA or Dancing Queen. We wanted our favourites and current chart music and that’s what we got. The dance floor was packed all night long, the band got one of our guests to sing on stage. It was awesome having One Band there.
