The only song I need are your song for walking up the aisle (the processional). Everything else you can leave to me as I know what works. If you do want to choose songs for the section as guests are arriving and during the signing of the register I’ve left a space for you to do that on the form.
Most rooms are adequate for me to just use my guitar. If a room needs a small sound system I can bring one in, it just means I’ll have a bit more to set up when it comes to the other parts of the day.
The three most common ceremony songs I am asked to play are:
You can also ask people in our facebook community what songs they chose / are thinking of choosing.
It depends on a few things. If your ceremony is in the same room as your meal it means I will have to set up for your meal during the drinks reception. If your ceremony is in a different room I will set up for your meal before the ceremony begins. In those cases I will spend some time outside with your guests singing unplugged in small groups.
Not usually. I wander around with my guitar and talk to people, get to know them and sing songs with them.
Anywhere that’s available.
Whatever is appropriate and whatever guests request through my guest request system.
Absolutely. It is my aim to be loud enough to be heard but quiet enough for people to be able to hold a conversation.
Thanks for the offer but due to health reasons I will bring my own food. I would like drinks though.
Most meals are short enough for me to do the set right through but if I do take a break I will play music through my sound system or arrange for the venue to put some music on.
Yes, and you can use my microphone.
Yes. I don’t book out DJs directly. I send your details to them so you should have already have a conversation with them about your wedding day at some point. If not just contact them directly.
90 minutes before I am due to start.
You don’t have to choose any if you don’t want to. I have standard playlists that work well on an evening. If you want to make your playlist then a good guide is 25 songs per hour of music to fill. If you have hired my equipment to play music through in the evening you will need around 3 hours of music (assuming you finish at 12am). So 3 x 25 = 75 songs. You can do more, you can do less, it’s up to you.
Again, it’s up to you. Remember that weddings are diverse affairs so maybe try to choose a little something for everyone.
If you have hired my equipment for the evening I work with Spotify playlists. This allows you to create a playlist and share it with me so I can download it to my computer.
To create and share a Spotify playlist you will need to
PLEASE NOTE: YOU DO NOT NEED TO WAIT UNTIL YOUR PLAYLIST IS FINISHED TO SHARE IT WITH ME. ONCE YOU HAVE SHARED IT WHEN YOU UPDATE THE LIST IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY UPDATE ON MY COMPUTER TOO.
Yes please. It just keeps things consistent. You don’t need a premium account to create and share playlists. The only thing premium does is remove the adverts.
No. You can indicate a few songs you like on the form but I generally don’t work with playlists. That’s because I read the room and go off what people are enjoying. I prefer the flexibility.
It depends on what vibe you’re trying to create, whether you have a DJ and a few other things. We will tailor it to you at the time.
A minimum of two 13amp plug sockets located close to the place where we will set up.
About 3 meters by 3 meters if I have a DJ with me. Please talk to your venue about space as sometimes they can push the dance floor right up to the wall and we end up having to set up on it.
