Testimonials

“Alex and I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Rachel and Kev for making our wedding day complete! I have to say that Alex was unsure if having singers was a ‘needed’ extra…. Evertide proved him wrong entirely!! They were the perfect mood setter for a beautiful sunny day during arrival drinks on the lawn.
Evertide worked well with the venue and were very accommodating with last minute changes. To ensure the guests got the best from them they played in two different places – they were all very impressed and we had many compliments about them.
From the bottom of our heart, thank you! Best wishes, Sasha and Alex Xx”

“Evertide were amazing! We really wanted a relaxed atmosphere for our wedding where guests could enjoy the music while they mingled and we got just that. They had a great range of music and everyone commented on how great they were. Evertide really helped to add to the atmosphere of a beautiful day and on top of that are possibly some of the friendliest people we’ve met! Thanks for making our day so special.”

“From start to finish it was very easy to work with Evertide, Rachel and Kev made the whole booking and planning side of our day very easy, which was so good with everything else going on.

 On our boat in the evening they blended in perfectly and seamlessly adapted to the changing mood of the night and our guests, they complimented the evening so well and we all had a great impromptu party, while also being great sports with a few of our guests.

 The only down side for us was that it all went so quickly!

 Thank you Rachel & Kev we do hope we will get chance to do something again in the coming years and of course will be in touch….

 Thanks”

“We booked Evertide for our ceremony and drinks reception. They’ve won lots of awards and this is what initially caught my eye, but as soon as I emailed knew they were the band for us! They were absolutely amazing and all my guests we’re raving about them the following day! Their helpful, efficient and useful advise was so appreciated during the lead up and on the day itself they are just such lovely people that made it that extra bit special.
What I also loved was the option to add a DJ for the evening, who was also perfect for what we wanted. He set up quietly, gauged exactly what we and the guests wanted through the night and expertly handled my husband asking for random requests!
Thank you Evertide for everything – you’re a true credit to your industry and feel so lucky you could be part of our special day.”

We are sat listening to your CD which we absolutely love, it is such a nice touch and a lovely memory to keep forever! You were so lovely right the way through planning, making it so easy for us and it was absolutely perfect for what we wanted on the day when our guests were arriving and during the ceremony.

The guests are still complementing how it created a relaxed atmosphere. Rachel and Kev are amazingly, lovely people and made this part of wedding planning stress free. The CD of the ceremony songs is a great addition, especially with our son singing along in the car! We would thank them again and again and would highly recommend them for any occasion!”

“Sorry it’s taken me a few days to get in touch, it’s been crazy busy ever since the wedding! Anyway we’re currently on our way to St Ives for our mini-moon and wanted to thank you for being amazing playing throughout our ceremony and thanks for your help with the choice of songs it was just brilliant and makes me emotional now just thinking about it! During the drinks reception I had so many guests compliment you and having quite a few musicians in my family that really is an honor!! Exactly the kind of chilled out vibe we wanted for our wedding, they played the music we love and were so very friendly and helpful makes the whole process so much easier when planning your wedding. They also were a great price compared to a lot of other bands we looked into. Thanks again for being so easy to work with and making our day complete we are both so happy we chose you, oh and thanks for our card! Thanks again, Faye & Steve”

“Myself and Kane would like to thank you so much for performing at our wedding. We had been let down by our wedding singer just one month before the big day, with some research and great reviews we contacted evertide and explained our situation. They were so disappointed for us that they came home a day early from a planned holiday celebrating their own wedding anniversary so that they could perform at our wedding! we now celebrate our wedding anniversary on the same date! Everything was perfect we had lots of compliments, dancing and requests performed. Also I followed their Instagram page and was able to see how beautiful their performances are. We have had so many compliments and queries about your services that we will be highly recommending. Great talent, great service!! Thank You, Mr and Mrs. Andrews”

We couldn’t have asked for a better musical duo to play on our wedding day! Very warm and friendly from the beginning of the planning process and an absolute pleasure to have as part of our wedding day!! A thoroughly lovely and super talented couple who created the perfect atmosphere during our wedding breakfast!

Evertide have moved me to tears every time I’ve heard them play, most of all on my wedding day as they played me down the aisle. It was just as I was about to turn the corner, I heard them playing the song we had chosen. A song I’ve listen to hundreds of times but suddenly it sounded like the first time and so beautifully sung. Then they played during our drinks reception and it was purely them that made it feel elegant but also fun rather than just the interim period for photos. We booked them because they blew us away at the wedding venue open day and we wanted to have a wow factor for our drinks reception- which they certainly were! They were fab!!

“Hi Rachel and Kev. Thank you so much for performing at our wedding it really added to the atmosphere and so many of our guests told us how much they enjoyed the music. There was a great variety of songs which suited the style of our wedding without being too over the top and taking away from everything else that was going on. We would definitely recommend you and we are really glad that we booked you.”

“Rachel and Kev, well what can be said other than a massive thank you. We were lucky enough to have booked you for our wedding and I was truly amazed at how what was classed as backing/atmosphere music, could be such a huge part of the day. Rachel, your voice was unreal and accompanied by the perfect amount of Kev’s acoustic guitar set such a perfect tone from the guests entry, through my wife’s (wow that feels weird saying) entry, our exit and then all the way through to the end of the wedding breakfast. I’m always dubious reading some testimonials but there aren’t enough words to start to describe how much you added to our special day but I think the guests’ amazing feedback, their numerous selfies taken with you guys, the impromptu head table sing and dance along followed by the two standing ovations surpass anything that could be put into text. We will always be grateful for making it so amazing and would always be happy for you to use us as contactable references for others who are looking to add your magic to their occasion. Please find a couple of pics as photographic evidence of your awesome performance. All our best to you guys.”

“We cannot thank Rachel and Kev enough for making our day so special, they are very talented in what they do. We booked them because we fell in love with Rachel’s voice which is simply beautiful and Kevin aded that special touch making them an amazing duo. They were professional right from the beginning, communication was always available especially when needing advice on song choice. Our ceremony was everything we had imagined and more. We were so pleased they could cover our song choices which were very meaningful to us, I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room.”

“We recently hired Evertide acoustic duo to provide live music for one of our corporate events. There was a good mix of down tempo songs and up-beat songs and they covered an extensive range of genres and artists to suit everyone. Kev and Rachel are both such talented musicians and are extremely professional. We have had such brilliant feedback from our clients that we will be hiring them for all future corporate events.”

Rachel and Kev are everything you need from a musician and truly are the best duo going. It helps that Rachel has the most amazing voice ever, plus mixed with a very talented Husband. They dedicate there personal time to make your special day perfect and want to help in any way possible. I haven’t heard another couple like them who love their jobs and love being present at your wedding. They can bring the whole wedding together and make it feel that extra bit special. I was lucky enough that they were available for my day. They can cater for any music and stand out from another other musician. If I could redo my wedding again, I would hands down chose them again.

“Hello Rachel and Kev. Just a quick note to say thank you so much for being part of our wedding in June.  We had an amazing day, and you added such a special touch to it; learning and playing our chosen song made it really personal and emotional and we’ll never forget it! It was just as we’d imagined and relocating outside for our guests to continue to enjoy your music was just perfect!  Letting us have a go was such fun, we got some fantastic pictures too. Thank you for making it all so easy for us, your professionalism and excellent communication was first rate and we would recommend you a million times over.Thank you for the memories! With love and best wishes, Sarah & Matt”

“I just wanted to say thank you for being a part of our special day. Everything you did was amazing, the flash mob was brilliant! We asked them to do a sing-a-long karaoke version of a song for when Lisa walked down the aisle and it was amazing! I was so nervous stood waiting for Lisa, but when Kev gave me the nod and I started singing(?) all my nerves left me! Everyone has commented on  the singing you performed after the service too. We picked songs that weren’t on the list provided and they learnt them and rocked them! The communication was brilliant, we met up a couple of times to work out what we wanted and even got a dress rehearsal on the day! Absolutely amazing couple who contributed to an amazing day xx

“We met Rachel and Kev at a wedding fair, when I walked into the room I asked the events manager what the beautiful CD was? Then I spotted them in the corner it was live and it was magical we both knew that we would like to have them perform at our wedding. We sat and watched and listened for while. Rachel has a gorgeous voice and Kev is a talented guitar player. I requested an Oasis song as they are my husband’s favourite band. When they performed Wonderwall it was imperative that they came to our wedding and we booked them on the spot. They were very professional , kept in touch by email prior to the day (which kept my stress levels to a minimum) and set up quietly in the other room whilst our guest were sat eating and were ready to play when we were ready for them. All of our guests young and old enjoyed their performance and I danced away to them for a couple of hours. If you are looking for live entertainment for your wedding or event please do not hesitate to contact Evertide.”
