Even amidst the restrictions of lockdown here in the UK and the impact this is having on the wedding industry as a whole, we are delighted to still be taking new enquiries and bookings for weddings, some as far away as 2023 and 2024!
In these unprecedented times, like any business, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to reach out and respond to our clients. One of the things we have found the most effective is to record our own version of the songs our prospective wedding couples are looking to have either at their ceremony or drinks reception.
Why do you need to hear your favourite song?
You may well ask… The thing is, most of the music we perform at weddings are contemporary popular songs. And of course by definition these are sung and have lyrics. Once you translate this to Cello and Piano the focus is very much on the music rather than the words. However, we still tend to perform songs where the words are meaningful to a wedding scenario.
For most wedding couples they might not have heard their favourite songs performed in this way – at least not unless you for example subscribe to the Brooklyn Duo or The Piano Guys on You Tube. We are fortunate enough to have a recording studio at home which is always at our disposal and therefore we are always more than happy to venture in there, sometimes late at night, in order to record a Bride’s favourite song.
