Live Band or DJ

Live band or DJ? It’s the age-old question for wedding couples - should I hire a live band or a DJ? On the surface, it’s an open and shut case. If you’re a clubber, you hire a DJ. If you’re a gigger, you hire a live band. Horses for courses, right? DJs are for people who [...]

Indie summer

  Not Indian summer - indie summer. Who doesn't love a summer wedding? Long, hot days, too much alcohol, uncomfortable clothes...what's not to love? So while it's true that we Brits don't "do" summer very well, we're pretty good at doing weddings. They don't go on for days, the food is usually pretty damn good, and [...]
