Hi, we are Music By Kate and Dave – a newly married musical duo specialising in bespoke arrangements of your most treasured songs for your wedding. Kate sings and Dave plays keyboards plus Dave also DJs so we can cover your whole day’s entertainment in one easy-to-book package!
As we are newlyweds ourselves, we feel we can understand each couple’s fears, concerns, hopes and dreams for their music and we make it our mission to provide a friendly, personal, professional, quick and easy service to make sure your music is all you hoped it would be!
We met studying Music together at Southampton University and since then we have over 11 years of performing professionally at literally hundreds of weddings in some absolutely amazing venues across the UK and internationally. We are experienced session musicians who have worked with artists such as Pulp!, Pixie Lott and Maverick Sabre and we are so passionate about what we do.
We offer a bespoke service, arranging any song that means something special to you to be played on piano and sung. We take pride in creating a beautifully intimate ambience for the most important day of your lives. We can provide music for your Ceremony, Drinks Reception, Wedding Meal, Evening Reception, First Dance and then hand over to Dave to DJ the night away! No music is too much of a challenge – whatever you request is our pleasure. We provide our own PA system and lighting which is included in our price.
We offer music for the following:
We can play while your guests are taking their seats, for the Bride’s Entrance, Signing of the Register, a Reading replacement and finally, the Exit. We can learn any song you would like for your ceremony and we will arrange it for voice and piano.
* Drinks/Wedding Meal/Evening Reception
We can play up to 2 x 1 hour sets while you and your guests sip your drinks and relax after your ceremony/settle down to eat or for something a little different after the meal. We can play outdoors or indoors depending on your venue. We have an up-to-date, eclectic and extensive playlist on our website which you can select songs from for this part of the day.
* First Dance
We can learn and play your first dance before your evening’s entertainment, again, we are happy to learn any song you’d like to dance to and arrange it in our intimate style.
Dave is an experienced wedding DJ and can put together a playlist that’s perfectly suited to you and your guests to keep the dance-floor packed all night.
Please get in touch regarding our prices and to check our availability, we can’t wait to hear from you!
Kate and Dave xx
