Email is generally best. A Skype call or something similar is also completely fine.
Absolutely. How involved you want to get is entirely up to you however, I do have a lot of experience and so aside from ‘special songs’ or specific songs you would like to hear on the day, I really only need to be pointed in the right direction. A small sample list for dinner and for one for dancing is fine. Even without that, I would be prepared for pretty much any situation and will read the crowd accordingly. That’s what you pay me for.
Every wedding is different so its difficult to maintain samples or mixes for every demographic. There are videos of weddings on my Facebook page in amongst the posts in my news feed.
Just a day or two.
Just the names of the songs in text.
A large percentage of weddings & events here require non-English language songs and I would likely need some support from your side to source these.
Extremely. I can do whatever it takes musically to keep everybody happy.
I’m not a professional MC and so for things like welcome speeches, the introduction of bridal parties, orchestrating games, etc – wedding planners will normally recommend that you select a member of your group to be the MC. That way it’s always a lot more natural, relaxed and fun. Alternatively, I can recommend & introduce you to professional MC’s.
Most weddings, I either start pre-ceremony, as guests arrive, or at dinner.
Yes. I have a professional sound system suitable for small to medium sized venues and up to around 80 people.
I do not have lighting equipment. I use trusted 3rd party suppliers for this.
Of course. However, sometimes I may look for your blessing as often, after a few drinks, guests will request obscure songs that can kill the party, so I can either use my own discretion or look for approval from you if I’m not sure its a good idea.
Confirmation in writing is perfectly fine, and I will go ahead lock it in my schedule.
