Ah, the glorious country of Wales, home of huge choirs, brilliant rugby players and honey ice-cream and they also have some of the best wedding venues in the UK as well as the attendant Welsh wedding acts for hire, heres a few ideas for the big day:

They have years of experience in the industry and have performed at many prestigious occasions and venues all over the world and on on numerous TV shows, been in West End shows, played at major corporate events, at V festival, Glastonbury, O2 arena and the have even played for Prince Charles at Windsor Castle no less… The band treats every occasion with the same highly professional and vibrant performances and the quality of this band is second to none.
