ABOUT ME

Hi, we are Music By Kate and Dave - a newly married musical duo specialising in bespoke arrangements of your most treasured songs for your wedding. Kate sings and Dave plays keyboards plus Dave also DJs so we can cover your whole day’s entertainment in one easy-to-book package!

We met studying Music together at Southampton University and since then we have over 11 years of performing professionally at literally hundreds of weddings in some absolutely amazing venues across the UK and internationally. We are experienced session musicians who have worked with artists such as Pulp!, Pixie Lott and Maverick Sabre and we are so passionate about what we do.

We offer a bespoke service, arranging any song that means something special to you to be played on piano and sung. We take pride in creating a beautifully intimate ambience for the most important day of your lives. We can provide music for your Ceremony, Drinks Reception, Wedding Meal, Evening Reception, First Dance and then hand over to Dave to DJ the night away! No music is too much of a challenge – whatever you request is our pleasure. We provide our own PA system and lighting which is included in our price.

"Kate and Dave were one of the major highlights of our wedding day. Together they played three of our favourite songs during our service which they performed in their own style. With Dave’s keyboard skills and Kate’s sensational voice, they performed a really personal set which beautifully complimented our intimate wedding service. Rachel walked down the aisle to ‘Higher Love’ by James Vincent McMorrow. ‘Sway’ by Bic Runga was performed during the signing of the register, and for the finale our love for Country music shone thru as Kate handed me my cowboy hat for their final song ‘Cowboy Take Me Away’ by Dixie Chicks. We were so pleased with their performances on the day, Kate and Dave kindly recorded all three songs for us in their London studio, giving us a priceless keepsake from the best day of our lives!"

"Dave and Kate,
Just wanted to say a humongous thank you to the both of you for making our day literally perfection! You are both so so talented and I have never heard so many compliments about you both. Kate - the church service was just incredible and we were so lucky to have you there!!
Honestly could go on for days about how amazing you guys are! Won't need to tell everyone about you as I think everyone is already trying to find you! Thanks so much again!"

"When we first started to plan the wedding, the music/band was the first thing we started to look for. I remember trawling through the internet listening to band after band who all seemed to perform the same selection of ten songs and all sounded like a generic wedding band that we had heard at every wedding we had been to. I knew after reading about 'Music by Kate and Dave' that I had to get in touch - and I'm so glad I did! Traditionally, wedding planning tends to bring quite a bit of stress, but the music is one part of the day we never had to worry about because we knew it was in such good hands. We absolutely loved hearing the live sets during the afternoon. To hear some of our favourite songs sung so beautifully was another brilliant memory. We had so many of our guests come up to us throughout the day and comment on what a great voice you have Kate and how brilliant you both were, and for that we thank you both. The first dance is also something that neither Callum or I will ever forget. Every word was sung perfectly and it was so special for us to be able to have something arranged like that for our day - thank you so much for taking the time to prepare it and rehearse it, we really mean it when we say it is something we will remember forever.

There are so many things we have to thank you for, thank you for travelling so far, thank you for taking so much care and time in arranging the music, thank you for always replying so quickly and keeping in touch, thank you for always being so enthusiastic about our suggestions and ideas, thank you for being so open minded and really making us feel like nothing was too much trouble but most of all thank you for helping us to create memories that we will have with us for a very long time."
