Cara Beard Music

www.carabeardmusic.co.uk

MY APPROACH TO WEDDING MUSIC - Song requests are heavily encouraged! ​

​I love it when my couples share their personal songs with me, whether it's because the lyrics describe you two perfectly, or if it was your proposal song! Something to also bear in mind is whether you'd like a theme with your music - i.e. mostly Country songs or heavily 90's/00's have been setlist's I've done in the past. I can also put together a good mix if you have a range of ages attending your Wedding. I've even learnt "Baby Shark" as a request before for the little ones! 

 

​I can't wait to discuss your plans for live music and I'm happy to recommend / help bounce song ideas around with you and will try and provide a snippet of your bridal entrance song or first dance song if requested upon booking!

Toastmaster

John Ashmele FGPT

www.ashmele.co.uk

Socials:  @johnashmeletoastmaster

My main aim as Master of Ceremonies at your wedding is to take the agreed plan and make it work on the day. After all those months of planning and preparation, this is when you want everything to be just right, so that you can relax with your family and friends and let me soak up most of the stress.

It is very tempting to cut costs and ask a member of your family or a friend to act as your Toastmaster, but it really does pay to have an experienced Master of Ceremonies to guide you through the pitfalls rather than ‘winging it’ on the day.

If you want to discover how I will make your wedding run smoothly and on time, leaving you free to enjoy the occasion alongside your guests, please contact me because I'd love to be the difference that will make your guests talk about your wedding long after you've said: "I Do!".

Furtho Manor Farm

www.furthomanorfarm.co.uk

01908 542139 

info@furthomanorfarm.co.uk

Furtho Manor Farm is a family run working sheep and arable farm.  As farming practices have changed our buildings have been converted to create new activities on the farm.

In the late 1990's the courtyard opposite the farmhouse was re-built in to offices after a farm fire which nearly destroyed them.

Then after ceasing milking cows over eight years ago other buildings became storage units and we excitingly started to hold wedding receptions in the barn previously used in lambing season. Since then the venue has transformed into an exciting rural wedding location, with the construction of the gazebo on our lake in 2019.

We have now been running a wedding venue in Milton Keynes since June 2011.

Despite being just a 10 minute drive outside of Milton Keynes, at Furtho Manor Farm you will feel miles away.
