The Vents recently played at our wedding, they were just amazing throughout the whole process. They replied so quickly to any question we had and really put our minds at ease. Their performances were outstanding and they just helped create an amazing atmosphere from the acoustic set at the reception all the way through to partying with us until the early hours!

The Vents are a dream wedding band. They are so easy to work with and it was no problem to answer all my hundreds of questions in advance of the day! The band really understood the vibe we were looking for our wedding: relaxed, chic and fun and from the moment they started playing until the end of the night - the dance floor was full. They also helped to add a unique touch to our day by working their magic on our first dance song - something I’ll cherish forever! The whole band were really professional throughout the day and I’d highly recommend them to anyone.
