Are you busy with Wedding Planning?  Perhaps you've already got the essentials - the Wedding Dress of your dreams, a Venue, Photographer, Florist, Wedding Band/DJ etc. 

MUSIC - LIVE MUSIC - PROVIDES A GREATER CONNECTION AT ANY TIME THAN ANY OTHER ENTERTAINMENT.           Adding top-quality live music to your Wedding provides the most emotional and FUN experience there is - and we don't just mean during the evening.                                                                                                                        IT'S VITAL TO HAVE A HIGHLY-RATED PROFESSIONAL WEDDING MUSICIAN - SO HOW ABOUT A SAXOPHONIST?           Uniquely  ideal for all music - unlike any other musical option e.g. piano, guitar, even a singer - the ever-popular sounds of the sax create the perfect ambience.   Favourite songs such as Baker Street, One Step Beyond, Careless Whisper are possible only on the sax.  Tim plays all your favourite songs from all genres of music. Your preferences will be crafted into the ideal mix to enhance any part of your Special Day: the Wedding Service or Ceremony, Drinks Reception/s, the Wedding Breakfast, and/or during the Evening Reception for added variety.  

YOU CAN RELY ON TIM NOT JUST TO PROVIDE A PERFORMANCE OF DISTINCTION FROM START TO FINISH, BUT HE WILL ALWAYS GO THE EXTRA MILE TO ENSURE YOUR BIG DAY GOES SMOOTHLY, JUST AS YOU DREAMED IT WOULD!                  His friendliness and passion for creating a happy feel to each event has been noted several times - and his approach and top-quality service often results in repeat bookings.  He's also happy to play requests - which he ALWAYS receives - and being a family man he delights in playing favourites for any children!

Tim will always discuss prices.  Don't undervalue your Wedding with the cheapest entertainment. You may receive a lower quote than Tim's, but most quote higher: a recent wedding was quoted £100+ more than Tim's price!!
