We can provide a lead to congregational singing in hymns, and sing an anthem at the Signing of the Registers, and at other points in the ceremony.

Our 2017 fee is £450, for which we field a minimum of 8 singers, and aim for 12. The fee includes an organist or conductor.

  • Michael and I wanted to send our thanks to you and your wonderful choir as I did not get chance to thank you on the day.

    It was perfect and the best day ever.

    So many of our guests could not say enough good things about your choir. They all said you were fantastic and loved the song choices. You made our special day even more special. Many of the guests said it was the best service they had been to - this was because of your effort and the wonderful choir.

    If you would like us to write a recommendation/testimony on your website please don't hesitate to ask.

    Best wishes,

    Mr & Mrs Parry
    Bride and Groom
