About

Located in Tring, Hertfordshire, Tailor Made Music Agency provides its clients with professional musicians for their weddings and other milestone events.

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, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Surrey, I have harpists, string quartets, pianists, saxophonists, flautists, brass ensembles, jazz groups, opera singers and more. I offer something for everyone. Using my 10+ 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.

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 for each, saving you hours of research.

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

Check out my Hitched Offers for details on my three packages. The Overture Package is for couples who have no idea what wedding music they want or need and no clue how much to budget! It's a consultation-only service to get you started. The Sonata and Symphony Packages are for couples who have decided what they'd like and want to get it organised with minimal stress.

Enquire through Hitched today, and let's put together the perfect soundtrack for your wedding!

Couldn't be more perfect made our day

I found this whole process so easy even tho I don't know anything about music but Rosie walked me through everything and helped me every step of the way. The music on our big day really made it even more special for us and everyone commented on how perfect it was and it really was I would recommend to anyone looking to get married in the next few years.

Truly inspired. Someone who loves what they do, and knows how music makes a wedding.

Impossible to say just how much of the magic of our wedding, and how many of the memories, we owe to Rosie. From the outset, not only was Rosie incredibly personable and interested in our big day, but she was genuinely, tirelessly committed to finding and make happen the music that was everything and more like what we imagined. Nothing at any point was too much for Rosie - she's intuitive, a master of detail, incredibly organised, and worth infinitely more than her agency rate. Above all, we felt throughout that we were working with someone truly inspired - who loves what they do, and understands how music makes a wedding. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

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!

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!

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!

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

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!

Perfect day!

I wasn't too sure what to expect when using an agency for the wedding music choice, but Rosie was amazing and super knowledgeable from start to finish. She is a lovely person and great to deal with! Having planned without a planner, there was always a lot going on but Rosie definitely took any stress out of this part of the process. Our violinist Corey was absolutely perfect and so professional, we loved every minute of her playing and she created such a pleasant atmosphere! Thank you so much for making our day go so smoothly!

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

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.

The whole experience was wonderful and perfect. Couldn't be any better. Thank you Rosie

We booked a harpist and cellist for our wedding with Rosie at Tailor Made Music Agency. We must say that the whole experience was absolutely perfect. The booking process was so easy. Rosie helped with every single thing including suggestions and getting the right musicians for us. The harpist and cellist both were brilliant at their job. They play the songs we asked for. I would definitely recommend Tailor Made Music Agency and definitely use them again for future events.

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.
