About

The classical and jazz specialists

Looking for live musicians for your wedding but don’t know where to start?

I’m Rosie, founder of Tailor Made Music Agency, and I’m here to help!

Specialising in classical and jazz, I’ve put together a collective of some of the finest professional musicians in the UK. Covering London and South East England, I have harpists, string quartets, pianists, brass ensembles, jazz groups, opera singers and more. I offer something for everyone. Using my years of experience working in the classical music industry, I’ve vetted the musicians, so you don’t have to. I offer you personalised advice on what will work best for your wedding.

In our consultation, I want to find out all about you as a couple. Your taste in music, your favourite songs, what your venue is like, and what kind of atmosphere you want to create at different points of the day. With this information, I’ll shortlist several artists for you to consider. You’ll get detailed information and quotes from each, saving you hours of research.

I’ll also arrange a secure contract for you, handle all communication and keep track of the details. This will give you peace of mind that everything will run smoothly on the day.

Enquire through Hitched today for your free consultation! No obligation to book and no hard selling. Just helpful advice to make sure you get the perfect music for your wedding.

    Great experience booking with Tailor Made Music

    Tailor Made Music (TMM) provided absolutely fantastic service arranging music for our wedding. After the initial consultation where we discussed the style of music we were interested in, Rosie (of TMM) shared with us a selection of very high-quality artists we could pick from. Communication was always incredibly prompt and the contract and booking were handled with utmost care. It's worth also mentioning how well things were handled with the COVID-19 situation. We, unfortunately, had to move the date of our wedding and Tailor Made Music were incredibly accommodating ensuring everything could be transitioned to the new date smoothly. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

    Tailor Made Music Agency's reply:

    Thank you for your lovely review, Tom. It's been great to work with you and I'm so glad we managed to come to a solution with postponing your booking.

    Wonderful service!

    We booked harpist Isabel Harries through Tailor Made and were not disappointed. The service from Rosie from beginning to end was so warm and efficient - so lovely to work with somebody that shares your excitement for the big day! Isabel was able to accommodate our track requests with such ease. Thanks so much Rosie and Isabel!

    Tailor Made Music Agency's reply:

    Thank you so much, Ekta for your wonderful review. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed Isabel's performance at your wedding. It was so great to be able to help you find what you wanted for your big day!

    Magical addition to the wedding

    Picking a musician or artist can be quite tricky, especially for a wedding, but Rosie made the whole process extremely easy and was accommodating to all my needs. The harpist she recommended done a beautiful job and I can’t thank Isabel enough for making the night a special one

    Tailor Made Music Agency's reply:

    Thank you Stephanie for your lovely review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed Isabel's playing. Congratulations again to you both on your marriage!

    Incredible addition to a perfect day!

    Working with Rosie to decide on music for our wedding was such a pleasure and a joy. Having never considered jazz before, her expertise and guidance really helped my fiance and I decide on a duo which perfectly suited the mood of our wedding. Communication was swift and clear with no hiccups in the whole process- despite a global pandemic! Would highly reccomend, and even if you're unsure do have a conversation. You may be surprised at just how importance music can be on your big day. Thanks so much Rosie!

    Tailor Made Music Agency's reply:

    Thanks so much for your lovely review Katie! I so enjoyed working with you and coming up with the perfect music to suit your wedding day vision. I'm pleased it all came together so well! Congratulations again to you both!

    Beautiful Addition to Our Wedding Day

    We wanted to express our thanks and gratitude to Rosie at Tailor Made Music. Like many couples we were forced to postpone our wedding however Rosie ensured she stayed in touch with us for the entire year until we finally said "I DO"
    Isabel Harries is such a beautiful Harpist and she was such a gorgeous addition to our wedding. The day could not be anymore perfect. The weather was definitely on our side. Isabel was also able to move the Harp into the garden as our guests mingled with Fizz & Canapes.
    Both ladies dealt with us with such care and empathy and we could not recommend them highly enough.
    The memories will last forever
    Thank you so much

    Tailor Made Music Agency's reply:

    Thank you for your lovely review Lorraine. I'm thrilled that Isabel's performance made such a difference to your day, and to your memories of it afterwards. Many congratulations once again!

    Personal, thoughtful and professional - everything we could have asked for planning our wedding

    We found Rosie at the Tailor Made Music Agency only 6 weeks before our wedding day but even with so little time and a vague idea of what we wanted, Rosie pulled out all the stops to help us find the perfect musicians for our day.

    The service is very personal, taking the time to understand you, your vision for the day/event, and what you like/don’t like. Even if you don’t have a clear idea, Rosie is on hand to advise on the best approach and for us it really made the day!

    Rosie found us some amazing options for singers for our wedding ceremony providing a professional bio, repertoire and videos for each so that we could make the right choice (though I’m sure all of them would have been great!). Rosie was on hand once we had made our choice to ensure the preparation for the day was in hand and the singer was comfortable with the arrangements / location / accompaniment. We had so many comments from all our guests as to how amazing our singer was.

    Rosie also found us a brilliant jazz band who switched their style between our drinks reception and evening dancing (as well as learning our first dance song). They were really good fun and excellent musicians.

    From our first phone call to the performances on the day, everything done by the Tailor Made Music Agency was professional, straight forward and personal - we felt truly looked after and it took any stress away that may have had. We would thoroughly recommend the Tailor Made Music Agency and look forward to using the service again one day!

    Tailor Made Music Agency's reply:

    Thank you so much Hannah for your glowing review! I so enjoyed working with you - you allowed me and the musicians to get creative to come up with something really special for your day!

    Wonderful string duo

    I have had a fantastic experIence of working with Tailor Made Music Agency. Rosie does a great job of sourcing talented musicians & takes the time to get to know her clients so she can find the perfect match for your occasion. The musicians in the agency are brilliant and so professional. Lydia & Joe provided beautiful music for our wedding reception and really made it a special occasion. I highly recommend Tailor Made Music Agency.

    Tailor Made Music Agency's reply:

    Thank you so much Caroline for your lovely words. I'm so pleased you and your guests enjoyed the duo's performance so much and that they contributed towards making your day so special.
    Best wishes,
    Rosie

    Exceeded Expectations

    It’s important during these times of uncertainty that we highlight suppliers who have gone out of their way to support Brides & Grooms. Taylor Made Music Agency is one such supplier. Thank you to Rosie who without hesitation supported us through postponing our wedding and securing our new date. The anxiety and sadness of not being able to have the wedding of your dreams is difficult as it is for every supplier. Having businesses like Rosie’s who deal with you, with such care and empathy goes a long way.
    Thank you.

    Summer Wedding, Devonshire Terrace (Google review)

    We hired a string quartet for our wedding through Tailor Made Music Agency, and we're really glad we did. Rosie was really easy to deal with, and delivered exactly what we wanted at a great price. The musicians themselves were really professional - they were clearly very experienced, great players, easy to contact in the run-up to the big day, turned up on time, played really well and created a lovely atmosphere. Their repertoire list was extensive, and they went out of the way to learn a couple of special extra pieces of music for us. I would certainly use Tailor Made Music Agency again, and would recommend them to others.

    Autumn Wedding at Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge

    We were so happy with the harpist's performance. She ensured that the day was extra special and many of our guests told us how beautiful the music was. I’m more than happy to leave reviews. Thank you for helping with the organisation and thank you to your harpist.
