“From start to finish it was a real breeze booking with you guys. Erin was truly amazing and made the whole booking and sorting out times etc so easy. Butterfly kisses were amazing and everyone complimented on them so thank you again.”Siobhan Bell - Wedding, Sopley Mill, Dorset
“5/5 - We had a great evening with the band and loved every minute. Everyone we dealt with had a really good mix of friendliness and professionalism and we would certainly be happy to recommend you. We hope Lianne and Nick enjoyed it too and a huge thanks not just for our first dance but for the extra one at the end 'Wonderful tonight' which was the perfect ending. Lots of us got up to dance too! Thank you.”Simon & Clare - Wedding, Woodlands Lodge Hotel, Southampton
“5/5 Butterfly Kisses were absolutely wonderful - they were perfect for our occasion. They were both so talented - noted also by many musicians in the audience - incredible vocals and guitar playing. We had countless compliments from our audience - one said 'this is the best band I have ever seen at a wedding' (that person having likely been to 50-100 weddings). Many others mentioned that their vocals were so pure, powerful and pitch perfect. Thank you for singing so many songs which were so magical for us - and especially Ed Sheeran - Perfect (even though we found it more difficult than we had expected to just enjoy the fabulous music - with so many friends and family wanting to catch up!).
We would recommend Butterfly Kisses in a heartbeat - and wouldn't hesitate to ask if they would perform again at a future event.”Alexander - Wedding, The Cross Barn, Hook
“5/5 - We had such a beautiful wedding day and the cherry on the top was the music from Butterfly kisses. They perfectly fit in the chilled theme we set for the day and moved us with their gorgeous music. I would absolutely recommend them!”Harold & Lisa - Wedding, Branksome Dene Community Room, Dorset
“We would like to say a huge thank you to Butterfly Kisses for playing at our evening wedding reception. Our first dance song was perfect and they really set the mood for our evening, it was just what we wanted.”Catherine Janson - Wedding, Careys Manor, New Forest
“Butterfly Kisses where incredible!! Our 1st dance was to Bryan Adams - Everything I Do, which i was a bit nervous about a live performance of, but they smashed it! The singer was amazing! We didnt have a huge event, but it was so much fun, every song was a brilliant classic, which really suited our crowd, i danced all night and completely forgot to talk to my guests!
Thanks very much, will strongly recommend you guys.”Ashley Baldwin - Wedding, Rhinefield House Hotel
“5/5. We could not be more thankful to Butterfly Kisses- not only were we blown away by their music but they were incredibly accommodating as everything was running behind on the day. It was also incredibly moving to perform our first dance against the backdrop of their incredible music. Cannot be more full of praise for their professionalism, talent and kindness. Sorry I wasn't able to say thank you in person on the day as I missed them when they were packing up but please pass on my sincerest thanks.”Victoria Clark - Wedding, Mast Builders, Beaulieu, Hampshire
“We had an amazing night thank you! Nick and Lianne we’re brilliant, picking them was one of the best decisions made for our wedding, they became a real focal point and set list was perfect. Loved the very relaxed style they started with while our guests arrived then how the more upbeat songs after the first dance got everyone up and dancing . Countless people commented on how good they we’re and what an amazing singer Lianne was. So easy and friendly to deal with didn’t have to worry about a thing. Loved having them play our first dance song just seemed to make it that more intimate and special. Please say a big thank you to nick and Leanne from me and Amanda. Only thing was our 2 yr old little boy stole the show and didn’t stop dancing all evening, the best moment when he they played an amazing version of The Proclaimers ‘I’m gonna be’ and he was stomping and literally had every woman in the place on the dance floor cooing all over him.”Darren & Amanda Spinks - Wedding, Bicester Hotel, Oxford
“The duo were great, thank you. Very accommodating & great singer. Many thanks for all your help.”Mark & Alison - Wedding, Sopley Mill, Hampshire

Please pass on our thanks for the brilliant contribution they made to our special day.”Kathryn Sadler - Wedding, Lympne Castle, Lympne, Hythe
“Hi Amy, Butterfly Kisses were amazing!! We are so glad that we booked them to play at our reception and we have had so many lovely comments from guests about the quality of the singing and guitar. They worked so well in our chosen venue that we were thrilled to have them. Please pass on our thanks to the members of the band - especially for learning our request song which was perfect for our first dance. Would definitely recommend them.”Helen Burt - Wedding, The Ginger Fox, West Sussex
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for providing the entertainment on our wedding day. Everyone commented on how lovely Lianne’s voice was. We both had a really fab time. Many thanks.”Leah Gilbert – Wedding, De Vere New Place, Hampshire
I am really keen to have some live music during my wedding ceremony - are you able to perform during the ceremony? Absolutely! We regularly perform during wedding ceremonies and drinks receptions. We like to arrive and set up in time for when your guests start to arrive, we can then welcome them with some live music and then perform as required during your ceremony. We can re-set and perform during your drinks reception if required. The band can also perform during wedding breakfasts.
Do you take requests? We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually a song during the ceremony. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the day.
How long do you take to set-up? 45 minutes.
What time do you play? At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, to be performed as required over a 4 hour period.
What is your guide price based on? Our guide price is based on our duo line-up option performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Fareham. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation.
Do you have your own equipment? Yes – we travel self-contained with amplification.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that? Yes, our sound works fine with noise limiters.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment? Yes.
How much space do you require? We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2m x 3m.
How much power do you require? 1 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks? The band's standard rider is for a hot meal and soft drinks for the band members or a £15 pp rider buyout.
Can we see you play live before booking? As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
