Black Pearl Weddings have had the privilege of interviewing Hayley, who heads this exceptional company. Not only a manager, she is a classically trained soprano, and a n expert in assisting clients to source the very best musical acts for their occasion.
Please can you tell me a little bit about your business?
Head Over Heels Entertainment proudly provides outstanding professional musicians and entertainers for Weddings across the South East.
With over 10 years experience in the Music Industry, we can deliver complete entertainment solutions for the entirety of your day. By representing some of the Country's Finest Professional Musicians, all carefully handpicked, we're offering you the peace of mind you're booking first class entertainment, that your guests 'can't help but fall in love with.' Covering Classical, Celtic, Jazz, World, Opera, Pop and Rock styles we can cater for all musical tastes.
What type of services do you offer?
At Head Over Heels we understand that no two Weddings are ever the same, which is why we offer you a totally bespoke service. We will work alongside you from the early planning stages right up to your big day to create the finest package unique to you that truly represents your style and musical taste. If we do not have the specific act you are looking for, we will endeavor to source or put together one from the wealth of incredible musicians we have available to us. We pride ourselves on being able to provide all of your musical requirements, all under the one roof, saving you time and money making multiple bookings.
We can supply all of your musical entertainment from your Ceremony, through to your Drinks Reception, your Wedding Breakfast and your evenings entertainment.
We offer competitively priced rates, excellent customer service, a straight forward, efficient booking process and exceptionally talented musicians!
What type of venues have you performed at?
Our Musicians have performed for prestigious clients including:
Rolex, Hermes, The Royal Family, The King of Thailand, Olympics 2012, Universal Pictures, The Baftas, Miramax, BBC, ITV, for 007 Bond Films, and many more….

How does your service appeal to couples?
The benefit of being able to source all of your Entertainment for the entirety of your day in the same place, saves our clients time and money. Multiple act bookings not only benefit from a discounted rate but logistically the client only has to deal with one person regarding all their entertainment planning. We provide a comprehensive contract that will cover all the acts booked, and in the event of illness provide replacement bands or musicians at last minute, which direct bookings with artists cannot provide.
Booking with Head Over Heels also ensures you are getting absolutely first class entertainment, musicians that they very night before your Wedding could have been performing at The Royal Albert Hall, in London’s West End or accompanying a world-renowned artist.
What can your service add to a wedding?
At Head Over Heels we love a good romance and delight in the opportunity of playing a part towards your special day. We understand the vital importance of all those extra little details that help make your day just truly perfect. With our array of stunning Wedding Singers, elegant Musicians and energetic Wedding Bands we hope to be able to provide you with outstanding entertainment for your entire day, from start to finish.
Our Acts regularly play during the:
CIVIL OR CHURCH CEREMONY
· Entertaining your guests before the Ceremony.
· As the Bride walks down the aisle.
· During the Singing of the Register
· Along with your hymns and other important moments.
HOH Recommends: Classical Vocalists, Harpist, String Quartet, Saxophonist or Pianist.
· Enchanting your guests during the photographs and meet and greets.
Live music creates a beautiful atmosphere ideal for receptions, one of elegance, glamour and serenity. Why not keep your guests happily entertained and tapping their feet along to one of our Jazz Bands during the sometimes- lengthy wedding photos!
Weddings can be a time of reunions so you don't need loud bands spoiling conversations. An unobtrusive pianist, jazz duo, guitarist or string quartet can set the mood just perfectly. Or wow your guests with our breathtaking Soprano duo Dolce Divas or liven the party up with sounds of the Caribbean with our Steel Pan Band! Whether you love Jazz, Classical, World or Pop Music we will find the perfect act for you.
· Providing elegant background music to accompany your meal, whilst enhancing the romantic atmosphere.

AFTER DINNER ENTERTAINMENT
If music be the food of love, play on! William Shakespeare
· Are you looking for a night of non-stop dancing with a sensational live wedding band?!
· Would you like to surprise your guests with stunning Opera Singers, an Electric String Quartet Show or even an Irish Dance Spectacle?
Why not make your first dance even more memorable with a live performance of your favourite song. Or kick off the evening with a Ceilidh or a Jazz Band before the DJ hits the floor.
Whether you are looking for a band to dance with, an Operatic or Rock performance to sing a long with or even a Celtic show to do a jig with! We are sure to be able to put a smile on your guest's faces and give you a night to remember!
All of our bands provide state of the art PAT tested PA and lighting systems and public liability insurance.
What advice would you give a couple when selecting a band.
The choice of band for a Wedding can be pivotal to the success of the evening. I would recommend firstly deciding on the style of music that you and your partner love and what best suits/represents you, be that a Swing Band, a Function Covers Band, a Rock Band or Ceilidh band?
Seek recommendations from friends and advice from a Music Consultancy like Head Over Heels Entertainment. We can provide you with video and audio clips from a variety of different bands to give you some inspiration. We also provide repertoire lists for all our bands so you can see if the songs you love are in their set lists. If you have a special song you would love to be played our bands are always happy to learn this for you.
There are so many bands on the Wedding scene at moment, but only a few that stand out as having WOW factor and are seasoned professionals at what they do. Make sure you ask to see bands testimonials or references, and read their biographies, where have they played before and for whom? How long have the band been performing together?
If you get the opportunity go and see your band perform live, and watch the reaction they are getting in the room, is everyone up dancing and singing along? Can you imagine them performing on your special day?!
We would love to sit down and talk you through your many options and line ups, and start helping you put together the little touches to make your day that extra bit more special.
