We’re not going to charge you close to that. Both packages start with an easy £99 deposit and we then structure the payments to fit your budget. Our ‘Acoustic Package’ is just 8 X £99 payments and our ‘Full Production Package’ is 18 X £99 payments.

Usually our clients start working with us at least 90 days before their wedding. This ensures they have enough time to complete the questions we need answering and gives us plenty of time for the writing and production of your custom song, including any edits you request.

So from the moment we receive your answers we can get get to work on your first demo and have that for your within 7-10 days, with the goal of having your song and have your song completed in as little as 15-30 days.
