Hello. I am planning my wedding at The Old Hall Hotel in Buxton, Derbyshire on Saturday March 24th 2018. We are having the ceremony in the hotel and it will begin at 2pm. Ideally I would like a Harpist for guests arriving, the walk down the isle, and the end of the ceremony. Harp music in general (with a wedding theme) would be fantastic, but we do have some specific songs we would like to request if possible. Many thanks

Wedding band needed for a vintage style wedding. We are looking for a 50s style rock n roll band to play for an hour at the start of our reception.
Dear John, Cheryl and your fellow musicians, Thank you for such a brilliant performance our wedding – our wedding guests loved it. The service was thoroughly professional and included a phone call from John to ask which tunes we would particularly like to have at our wedding. There were so many classical pieces and modern-day tunes to choose from. To have such wonderful musicians at our wedding really enhanced the occasion and atmosphere. Thank you, Clay and Jean Johnson Luton Hoo Hotel 19th March 2016
I couldn't have asked for a more professional, talented and friendly group of people to play at my wedding reception in April. Music has always been a really important part of both mine and my husband's lives (in very different ways) and so choosing the right band was at the top of our priority list. We had a look at some other groups before booking these guys but just no one compared! We had heard them play at a friend's wedding the year before and knew they were excellent! We had fantastic feedback from our guests after our big day, who were all in awe of the quality of this group and no one had a bad word to say (and we had guests aged 2-89 there!!) They beautifully played our first dance and had my husband and me near tears, and then were able to get the whole room up and dancing-such fantastic musicianship!! These musicians are the best of the best and I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding just that extra bit more special! X
Booked Ray this weekend gone for a wedding reception and was blown away with the performance and ambience she created. Everyone was amazed and I will definitely be booking her again. Great mix of English and Bollywood music not to mention the live aisle walk for the bride.
