Wedding first dance

Harlequin are unique in offering clients their very own specifically composed Original First Dance Song written by our professional musicians especially for you and your partner.

No other band in the world offers this service and what better way to have your first dance together than to dance to your own personalised song to keep with you for the rest of your lives together.

A CD can also be produced upon request for you to savour and listen to again after your wedding.

Our Creative Process

It happens kinda like this: Shane consults the bride and groom by spending time getting to know the key things that matter to them. Both bride and groom don’t have to be in attendance and the song can be written in secret, i.e. as a surprise for your fiance.

Over coffees Shane can guide you carefully through the writing of a song ‘brief’ which will include three main aspects: Here’s a summary of his process…

Corporate-Music-EntertainmentA. The details of the KIND of song you would like, i.e. dance-y, soft, loving, tongue-in-cheek or funny.

B. The STYLE of the song, i.e. Would you like the song to be alternative, smooth, jazzy, pop, rocky or hip-hop.

C. CONTENT (The details of the song themes and lyrics): herein lies the personality of the song – the element that makes it ‘YOURS’. Shane will spend time getting ideas and brainstorming factors or elements of your lives together – some of which will make the content. After a good old natter Shane takes his notes away and gets started.

Draft: In a month Shane will either meet you in person to perform a draft version of the song or if you are unavailable the song draft can be recorded in simple form and emailed. If you would like some amendments they can be applied at this time…

Final: A final version of your song can be performed at one of our live showcases. A CD of your song can also be posted to you month in advance of your wedding – if you’d like to familiarise yourselves with the piece for dancing purposes.

Our aim is to give you a beautifully personal song you’ll always have as your very own anthem. We endeavour always to create interesting and very polished finished songs for our clients. Please request some sample recordings if you are considering this service for your unique wedding.
