“We had The Secret Chord play at our outdoor ceremony in August and from the very beginning, when I first contacted them, they were absolutely amazing. The choice of music is spectacular and they are just so friendly to deal with. On the day, everyone was blown away with the music, it was so romantic and memorable. Thank you all so much for making our ceremony truly memorable, I would recommend you to everyone”

Toni & Mark

“Yuki & Quentin did a lovely job playing instrumental pieces for our wedding ceremony and also our drinks reception. We had a couple of special requests in terms of songs we wanted to have played at the ceremony and they happily accommodated this. Highly recommend!”

M Tierney

“Caroline was so professional, kind and helpful the couple of times that we made contact. She was open to song suggestions we had and even learned our song off that I walked down the aisle to without hesitation. I had been told by a couple of people that you wont hear any of the music that it goes over your head but I have to say I heard most of the songs it was great to hear what we had chosen and sang so beautifully. Many commented on the music and song choice throughout the day. I would not hesitate to recommend the secret chord, thanks very much guys for making our day extra special. I especially loved hearing Ed Sheeran (photograph) as I waited at the back door with my dad. Thanks so much.”
