As you prepare for that special moment you say 'I do,' have you thought about what will truly last beyond the wedding day? Sure, photos and videos capture memories, but a custom song adds an emotional layer that's simply irreplaceable. In this article, we'll explore the ins and outs of custom songs, why they make for an extraordinary gift, and how we bring them to life from concept to completion.

What is a Custom Song Gift?

custom love song is what you get when we take your personal love story and transform it into a professionally crafted personalised song with meaningful lyrics, timeless melodies and beautiful instrumental arrangements.

It can be used as the perfect gift to your partner to show how much they really mean to you. We guarantee they’ll never expect you to surprise them with something like this, and you’ll win extra points for a totally unique personalised gift.

What Makes Personalised Song Gifts So Special?

personalized song is more than just a melody; it’s a musical snapshot of your unique journey, emotions, and experiences. Unlike generic songs that aim to appeal to a broad audience, a personalised song is tailored specifically to you, capturing the nuances of your story and the essence of your relationship in a way that nothing else can.

Here's some of the benefits you get:

Custom Songs vs Traditional Wedding Gifts

Receiving a gift from that special someone

Let’s be honest, most wedding guests will stick to the tried-and-true gift registry for your big day. And hey, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that; who doesn’t love a new blender or set of towels?

But if you’re aiming to gift something truly unforgettable, an original song crafted just for you and your partner can evoke emotions that material items simply can’t match.

Imagine the look on your partner’s face when they hear a song that encapsulates your love story, likely leading to a moment filled with happy tears.

In a sea of traditional gifts, a custom song stands out as a unique and heartfelt gesture. It’s not just another item to unwrap; it’s an experience, a memory, a keepsake that you both will cherish for years to come.

While kitchen gadgets and home decor are useful, they don’t capture the essence of your love or the significance of your commitment. A custom song does just that, making it a gift that resonates on a deeply emotional level.

How to Create Your Custom Song

We’ve streamlined the process to make it as easy as possible for you, while our dedicated team puts in the hard work to turn your love story into a professionally crafted song.

Step 1 - Hearing Your Love Story

Once you decide to collaborate with us, the first step is diving into your unique love story. We’ll send you a questionnaire covering everything from how you met to your favourite music styles—all confidential, of course. Your answers not only help us craft personalized lyrics but also guide us in capturing the ideal musical vibe, whether you’re after a slow ballad or something more uptempo.

Step 2 - Creating Your First Song Demo

As soon as we receive your questionnaire responses, our songwriter Tom Shaw crafts a rough lyric draft for your review, ensuring it resonates with your love story. Once you’re satisfied with the lyrical direction, we move on to setting those words to music, creating an acoustic demo complete with chords, melodies, and professional vocals.

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself tearing up upon first listen; it’s a common reaction and a testament to the emotional impact of your custom love song, making it an unforgettable gift for your wedding day.

Step 3 - Producing Your Professionally Crafted Personalised Song

How Much Does a Custom Song Cost?

You’re probably curious about the cost of crafting a personalised song. To give you some perspective, hiring a songwriter, session musicians, a professional vocalist, and covering studio time, mixing, mastering, and lyric video animation could easily set you back at least £4000.


But don’t worry, we offer a much more budget-friendly approach. Both of our packages begin with a simple £99 deposit, followed by payment plans tailored to your budget. Find out how much does a custom song cost here.

How Long Does it Take to Finish a Personalised Song?

Our team working hard on a personalised song in the studio

Most clients begin collaborating with us at least 90 days before their wedding to ensure ample time for the creative process, from answering our questionnaire to finalizing the song.

Unlike quick, pre-recorded options, our team invests significant time and effort to make your song truly special. Once we receive your answers, we aim to deliver your first demo within 7-10 days and complete the final song in as little as 15-30 days, giving your unique love story the attention it deserves.
