Guaranteed dancefloor fillers you say?

 

We’ve been in the wedding entertainment business a long time (15 years and counting) and being based in London with most of our staff of musicians gaining their music degrees in London and living and gigging in and around London all this time means we’ve performed at thousands of weddings in our beautiful capital. From epic weddings at the Roundhouse music venue in Camden to intimate weddings in Tower Bridge (yes the actual bridge) we’ve graced pretty much every music and wedding venue.

All the photos you see are photos we took while performing for Londoners who were partying hard! They love to dance into the early hours and over the years the bands below have time and again taken empty dance floors and transformed them into vibrant, all singing all dancing fuelled riots. If you can’t get a wedding party singing, dancing and shouting along to everyone’s favourite classic and contemporary tunes after 15 years in the wedding entertainment business you should probably look at a career change!

Who are Flowers?

Weddings are expensive but you still want a great band to pack your dance floor right? That’s where London based Flowers come in. Even though they boast a talented line up with all the experience you could ask for, even though they arrive equipped with top gear and a professional attitude and even though they expertly cover Soul, Pop, Dance, Motown, Indie and Rock hits from the ‘50s right up to the present day, they will never break your budget. With a few of the members being married themselves, they understand weddings are a pricey affair so that’s why they are determined to be one of the most affordable live wedding bands for hire in the UK without compromising on quality.
