From the moment we started planning our wedding, we knew we wanted music to be a big part of the day. We are so happy we chose The Music Planners for our ceremony and drinks reception. They couldn’t have been more helpful in the lead up to our day. Their calm, relaxed and professional approach was exactly what we needed. For the ceremony, we had Luke on vocals, Ellenor on violin and Jean on piano, they are masters of their craft. It was so special and emotional to hear their performance. The music set the entire tone of the ceremony and the guys absolutely nailed it! For the drinks reception we had Paul perform. His ability to hold a crowd is exceptional and his performance really got the party started. It was lovely to look around the room and see everyone really enjoy the atmosphere he created. We would highly recommend The Music Planners, they made our day so special.

The wedding ceremony music performed by Luke on vocals, Jean on piano, and Ellenor on violin was absolutely sublime. Their harmonious collaboration added a layer of elegance and emotion to the event, creating an unforgettable atmosphere for the bride, groom, and guests. Luke's rich vocals, Jean's delicate piano melodies, and Ellenor's soul-stirring violin solos blended seamlessly, elevating each moment of the ceremony to perfection. Their talent and passion truly made the occasion magical, leaving everyone in awe and ensuring cherished memories for years to come. If you're seeking musical perfection for your special day, look no further than this extraordinary trio.

The Music Planners were just amazing. Our church ceremony was our favourite part of our wedding day. The music was so fitting and represented us as a couple. The team were able to include all of our chosen songs in the ceremony, even re-arranging some pieces to suit the tone of the day. Instrumentals of some songs were also used to ensure they could be included. We still listen often to our wedding playlist. Thank you to The Wedding Planners for making our day so special. An absolute pleasure to have worked with you!
