Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

No problem, as long as I don’t have another booking elsewhere that is affected I will accommodate all time changes. I do sometimes take two bookings in a day but if you book my full day package, I am exclusive to you and your event for that day.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

I provide an unmanned service between and before sets as standard but also offer a full DJ service for evening sets alongside my evening performances. This is included in my full day package or can be added for an additional fee to any other evening package

How much time do you need to set up?

Approx 1 hour

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

I ask clients to highlight their favourites and I will build a set around them.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I bring everything required, I just need access to power, enough space to set up, access to the room to set up.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

For ceremony packages and first dance songs I learned these as standard. My repertoire is very extensive and impossible to write down in full, so if a song is wanted that is not on my list for anything outside of the ceremony and first dance, just ask! I may know it!

Lorna performed at our wedding and she was extremely popular with our guests. She was also willing to learn a song that we particularly wanted that wasn't in her repertoire and also was very flexible with small changes in performance times that we made on the day.
