You were great and I can’t thank the violinist and cellist enough for standing in last minute at the church!
Inevitably, at every single wedding, something will go wrong. Sometimes it’s big things, like the groom not turning up or the ringbearer eating the rings. Usually it’s little things, like the cake going a bit wonky in the summer heat. In this case it was somewhere in between, but luckily our pro musicians were on hand to save the day.
It should have been a straightforward wedding booking – our violin and cello duo playing background tunes at the church, joined by the rest of Strings Attached for an acoustic set at the drinks reception, then Funk Soul Family bringing the house down in the evening.
The only slight hitch was that due to a communication mix-up there was no organist to play the hymns at the church. The vicar decided to dive into the first song a capella – and got full marks for confidence, although the key was a touch too high for most of the congregation…! For the second hymn, our violinist and cellist offered to play an accompaniment – improvised on the spot – which got everyone singing and saved the day.
It was plain sailing from then on, with drinks in the sunshine at Hazel Gap Barn followed by our five-piece Funk Soul Family party band in the evening. Chloe, the bride’s sister, joined us for Valerie which really helped get the party started.
We absolutely loved providing live music for this Nottinghamshire wedding. One of the things we really pride ourselves on is flexibility – knowing what to do when things don’t quite go according to plan!

Here’s what the lovely Lucy and Chris had to say about the live music we provided for them. Congratulations again, guys!
"Good Indeed Music provided the live music during the church ceremony, drinks reception and evening reception at our venue on our wedding day on 2nd August 2019. We chose to have a violinist and cellist play during the church ceremony, Strings Attached play during the drinks reception and Funk Soul Family play during the evening reception. They were absolutely fantastic during the wedding and also helped us so much when organising plans for the wedding day, coming up with recommendations on how best to structure our day, suggestions for wedding songs and even editing songs for us to be played during our wedding.
We can not recommend this band enough! We were first introduced to them at my brother-in-law's wedding around 4 years ago and loved them then, so as soon as we got engaged Good Indeed Music was the first supplier we booked!
Thank you for making our wedding day run so smoothly and for all your help in the run up to the wedding!"
