MEET THE TEAM BEHIND THE SCENES
For those of you who have planned weddings and events through us here at REDTIE before, there is a 100% chance that you have met our resident super hero, Shona! More powerful than a locomotive and able to leap buildings with a single bound (unconfirmed), no one puts in more heart and love into this job than our Admin and Bookings manager.
When it comes to Wedding planning, Shona will get in the ring right there with you, acting not only as an entertainment professional but an events planner most days as well! Working with her closely, there is no one I’d rather have looking after you all than this amazing woman to the right!
For those who are yet to work with us, I’d like to Share with you some FAQ’s that our lady Shona has written herself to put your mind at ease on what should be the happiest day of your life!
What advice would you give to couples for their wedding day?
Try not to sweat the small stuff. If dads speech goes for 15minutes when he had a 5min limit, don’t worry. We are super flexible and go with the flow on the night. Also First Dance; don’t worry about feeling awkward when dancing in front of everyone, enjoy the beautiful moment with your loved one and I bet there wont be a dry eye in the room. Have Fun!! Yes the day is all about you and there’s a lot of stress that comes with that, but let as much of that go on the day and make sure you enjoy it all!
What do couples compliment your services on the most?
Redtie only have performers who absolutely LOVE what they do! Clients love that we are there to hold their hand throughout the entire process and that we want to know all of the details about their day! We are reliable and adaptable: We can customise set-lists, outfits, set times etc. We get a dance floor filled on the night!! We don’t just book it in and turn up on the day. WE CARE! We are as excited about playing at their wedding as they are about having us there :).
How would couples describe your style?
We have a number of performers to suit many wedding styles! Whether the couple are after the modern pop tunes or r&b hits, country or jazz or the classic pub sing-alongs. Clients will attest to the fact that we have their guests up dancing all night, including the grandparents!
What do you do to create memorable moments for your couples?
We customise what we do, so that the couple get a one off memorable night! Set lists are specific to what the couple and their guests enjoy, special songs are learnt specifically for the night and even our lineup can be changed, just to suit what the couple are after. The wedding is all about the couple and we are there to make sure it’s a huge success!
