How we do weddings

We under­stand that with so many options avail­able, choos­ing the right live enter­tain­ment for your wed­ding can be a lit­tle daunt­ing. After all, there are so many options to choose from. But don’t wor­ry, we’re here to help. 

At Gecko Live, you’ll find that no request is too big — or too small! We’ll work with you to under­stand your vision and rec­om­mend the best live music for your wed­ding. This means under­stand­ing you both as a cou­ple and what you love, as well as your venue style and guests. There are no hid­den costs; this is all part of the excel­lent ser­vice and care we give each of our couples.

How do I find the best wed­ding band?

We make rec­om­men­da­tions of acts based on what we think you’ll love. We can help you find live musi­cians for just your wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny or cre­ate an all-singing and all-danc­ing enter­tain­ment pack­age that cre­ates the entire sound­track for your wed­ding celebration. 

This could be a live acoustic act for the wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny, a magi­cian to mix and min­gle dur­ing your drink’s recep­tion, and a live show band for the evening.

How do I book my wed­ding band?

Unlike many oth­er agen­cies who leave you to organ­ise the fin­er details of your live wed­ding enter­tain­ment, you’ll talk direct­ly to us through­out the book­ing process and lead up to the day. Once you’ve decid­ed on your live enter­tain­ment, we’ll send you a book­ing agree­ment, which is our ver­sion of a con­tract via our online client por­tal. This will have all the infor­ma­tion you will need about the acts you have booked and your sched­ule. We’ll also intro­duce you to your own ded­i­cat­ed mem­ber of our in-house Gecko team.

We col­lab­o­rate with you right up to the day to ensure every­thing is in place and can include the music choic­es for your pro­ces­sion­al and reces­sion­al, your first dance, and even entrance to the wed­ding break­fast. We’ll also liaise direct­ly with your venue, and we’ll coor­di­nate your acts, so every­thing runs like clock­work. We even go as far as to make sure we know the best routes for our per­form­ers to take to load in and out of your venue, so it is quick, sim­ple, and discrete.
