Russ & Carly Duo Testimonials

"We asked Russ to play a piece of Welsh music as I walked down the aisle. It was played beautifully. Whilst Tim and I signed the register, Carly and Russ played a selection of songs that are really special to us.

Still to this day when we talk to friends and family about our wedding, people mention how much they enjoyed their music. They are both incredibly lovely people who are 100% committed to their work, and their passion shows through their playing."

Fay and Tim - Gwynfa Chapel, Flintshire (Wedding)

"Carly and Russ were recommended to us by a friend when we were looking for a singer at our wedding in 2011. We were absolutely blown away by their performance and some of our guests thought it was a CD playing!

We were lucky enough to have lovely weather on the day so Carly and Russ set up outside while our guests enjoyed drinks, they absolutely made our wedding! They are a professional, reliable and absolutely amazing duo! Highly recommended, thank you both again"

Gemma and Scott - Faenol Fawr, Denbighshire (Wedding)

"We had the pleasure of Carly and Russ playing at our wedding. I had a piece of music I wanted to walk down the aisle to and Russ played it stunningly. We had music performed by them while we signed the register and as we walked out. I can't tell you how amazing these two are. Highly recommended."

Helen and Nick - Caer Rhun Hall, Conwy (Wedding)

"Carly and I (Lisa) attended the same school, so I already knew what a fantastic singer she is and when debating whether to have a musician at our wedding there was no-one else that even came into the equation! To top it off her partner Russ is the pianist and a fantastic one too!!!

Their presence at our wedding made it so much more personal. Out of almost 200 guests - nearly every single one commented on what a wonderful touch they added to the day and how fabulous they were!"

Lisa and Mark - St John's Church, Llandudno (Wedding)

Q: Do you only perform at weddings?

A: No! We are happy to perform at any event you have planned. We are also available for restaurant and hotel performances.

Q: I have a request that's not on your songlist. Can you learn it for our wedding?

A: We're always happy to learn a song or two, however obscure, provided we're given a few weeks notice. If the song is for your procession, recession, or first dance, we'll even offer to record you a version to audition beforehand.

Q: Do you use backing tracks?

A: No. Everything we play is completely live.

Q: Our wedding venue doesn't have a grand piano. Does this matter?

A: No problem! In the event that a piano is not available at the venue, we will bring a top of the range Yamaha stage piano which faithfully reproduces the tonal characteristics of an acoustic grand.

Q: How much space do you need?

A: We can comfortably fit into an area of 2m x 2m.

Q: Can you set up outside?

A: Inside, outside, or in a marquee. If there's a power supply, we can play!

Q: How long do you need to set up?

A: Depending on access to the venue, we can be set up in as little as 20 minutes. We'll always discuss such logistics well in advance to ensure your day runs smoothly.

Q: Do you have public liability insurance?

A: Yes. We are insured by Musicguard with cover up to £2million.
