Supplier Spotlight; Ryan from Paper Hearts
We have coordinated a number of weddings where the lovely Ryan and Amelia from Paper Hearts have performed, and we can tell you first hand what gorgeous voices and complete professionals these two are!
The last few weddings they have done beautiful performances at ceremony and pre dinner drink time but they also have a full band for more upbeat and crazy tunes for later in the evening, so can do it all.
Plus they are super duper nice, quick to respond to emails and very flexible with song choices, which is why we love them!
You can watch some of their vids and promos here
Here is a bit about Paper Hearts…
What sort of services does your business offer/what do you do?
We are wedding entertainers offering duo / band packages (DJ option too) for wedding ceremonies / canapés and receptions.
A bit about yourself?
We are a male/female couple and we absolutely love being a part of the wedding industry, sharing magical moments with amazing couples. Being a couple ourselves it’s so nice for us to be able to perform and share these experiences together. Our biggest strengths are our stunning male/female vocal harmonies, with 2 lead singers both playing instruments we are able to create a beautifully rich sound.
What questions do you recommend couples ask or look for when sourcing a performer/band?
Couples should always ask to see the musicians’ song list and any live videos/recordings they have available – doing some background research via Facebook / Instagram / YouTube is a great place to start once you’ve found a duo/band you like.
Professional wedding vendors should always cater for special song requests as well (ie. Walking Down The Aisle, Bridal Waltz, Father/Daughter Dance etc), and this is really important as it personalises your wedding, making it unique and special to the bride/groom.
What are some of the key trends you see around in 2017/2018 for weddings?
Chinos and suspenders – the men are looking very dapper in the garden/outdoor weddings. The brides always look amazing too of course!
Favourite service you offer at the moment?
This is like asking a parent to choose their favourite child? Haha. We love all of our packages, but our latest offering is becoming increasingly popular for couples that want the best of both worlds – Duo @ ½ Reception + DJ Full Reception – this has our duo performing 2 acoustic dinner sets (concluding with the Bridal Waltz), and our resident DJ Toby taking control of the dance floor for the remainder of the reception.
