A: We can fit into your schedule and timings.
Q: We are a year away from our event, when would you require a deposit ?
A: Many of our wedding clients book us up to 2 years in advance. Our policy is to pencil book your function and require a deposit 4-6 months prior to the event date to confirm your booking. In the event we get another inquiry on the same date, we will contact you and give you first refusal. The deposit would then be required immediately to give you exclusivity to that date.

A: Every function or event is different, but we are happy to play to your schedule. Please click here to inquire further.
Q: What happens if our function runs over time? Are you OK with this?
A: No problem. Weddings will often run over time and we are quite used to this.
