Frequently Asked Questions
What is your starting price?
We offer a range of packages to suit every couple; Bronze Entrance, Silver Soundtrack and, the most popular, Gold Package. Please click on our website link for the breakdown. As our experience is couple focussed, we can tailor-make your journey to suit you.
What style of music do you offer?
We take inspiration from music or songs that you cherish, no matter the style or genre. From our in-house experience we cover all styles that span from genres throughout the decades and cultures.
Who do we write songs for and for what occasions?
We write songs for all occasions however our main focus is that of weddings and anniversaries. We believe weddings are such a significant and special moment in our lives and therefore should be celebrated as such. By recognising the transcendent power of music we can create a moment that will last in the form of a song or melody.
Why choose a bespoke song?
“Music is a powerful tool which spans cultural divides, has the power to convey emotion and unite us with a moment when words are not enough.”
We write a bespoke composition to give as a gift or for you and your loved one(s) to carry into the future.
Do I have to have lyrics?
Absolutely not, this piece is sculpted to your needs, whether that be a beautiful, instrumental aisle walk, a fitting soundtrack to your video or a full lyrical masterpiece.
What musicians and producers do you work with?
Justgiftmusic has a strong in-house team of musicians, composers and producers but when needed our network of professionals means that we can enlist help and inspiration from some of London’s most presticious industry professionals.
“Our musicians and writers have worked with artists including John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Luther Vandross, Michel Legrand, Robbie Williams, Seth MacFarlane, Josh Groban and Stormzy as well as brands including BT, Primark, Lowe Alpine and Disney. Our Producers have worked in, ran and owned many different studios around the UK and have a complete understanding in modern recording techniques which has enabled them to hear their music on radio and top spotify playlists.”
Am I involved in the process?
You can be as involved as you wish! We will meet with you personally for an initial conversation to discuss your inspirations and thoughts for your piece, however if you choose to do it all electronically that is fine too. But don’t worry, we are here to advise and inspire if music isn’t your thing. All of our packages include revisions, which means you’re with us every step of the way.
Do I pay a deposit?
We require an initial deposit of 50% which then kick-starts the creation of your composition. Our invoice of the rest will be sent once the composition is completed so we can send your gift to you.
What happens once it’s finished?
You have the option to receive your song as a Vinyl, LP, CD or elegant data stick. We provide these personalised mementos in a beautifully crafted gift box, which can be sent to the giver or receiver directly. To make the gift that little bit extra special, we also offer you the opportunity to commission hand-decorated sheet music of your composition, free of charge. This can be decorated with personal touches, such as flower motifs, mirroring those from their special day, or using a colour scheme that reflects the unique moment the gift was given.
Who owns the song?
As contracted, the song will be exclusively used for you and your occasion, but as industry professionals, the composers, instrumentalists and producers involved will retain copyright. However, we will never re-commission your bespoke composition, it’s for you and your legacy only.
If you choose to be involved lyrically, we will of course give credit where credit is due and will accredit you as a writer with the necessary percentage.
Can I post this song online (with my video)?
Your commissioned song will be fully licenced for you to post online with any footage from your day on any social media account you wish.
How can I share the song?
We provide a QR code to the website and/or can upload it for free onto spotify for you and your family and friends to listen and enjoy on the go.
What if I change my mind?
You can of course change your mind; we offer a full refund of the deposit within 72 hours. After that time has passed we will have approached and commissioned our composers and musicians.
