Q We're looking for entertainment that will keep our guests happy throughout the day. Do you have any suggestions?
A Lucy Harvey says: Live music! Always guaranteed to keep the mood joyful and get your guests tapping their feet or singing along. It can complement any point throughout your special day from pre-wedding ceremony music to setting-the-mood tunes during your drinks reception, or even the often over-looked early evening guest arrival. You don't have to save it until your evening bash. It also works perfectly alongside other entertainment, such as the background music while a close-up magician performs during a drinks reception or as a live soundtrack of your favourite songs during your wedding breakfast while you eat. What's more, having some super-funky live tunes playing as guests enjoy visits to the photo booth is another option.

Q We'd love some live music at our drinks reception, while still allowing our guests to chat and catch up. How can we strike a good balance?
A Drew Hall says: I'd suggest a laid back, non intrusive approach such as some soulful, acoustic, easy listening tunes. Perhaps something a little more stripped back than a full band, such as an acoustic or even completely unplugged duo or trio. The volume should be quiet enough for guests to chat comfortably and loud enough so that those who want to take a break from conversation can enjoy the atmosphere it creates.

Q We're looking for entertainment that'll appeal to everyone and have our wedding be the topic of conversation for months to come! Do you have any ideas?
A Danny Albone says: Two words – fire show! It's a different approach to entertainment that'll immediately captivate, easily excite guests of all ages and bring a truly unforgettable wow-factor element to your special day.

Performing at weddings is my absolute favourite thing to do, which is why I decided to set out and create a fire show specifically for them. In doing so, I ended up creating three! These extensively choreographed fire and pyrotechnical performances feature plenty of crowd interaction, comedy, movement and dance through an extensive range of up to 14 dangerous props and skills all leading up to a jaw-dropping finale. Meticulously created with wedding clients and venues in mind, each show is crafted to match the space, party size and budget while remaining fully portable and lasting either 12, 20 or 30 minutes. It's the perfect time-filler for when your band or DJ takes a break.
