The best wedding band!

booked Northern Star for their Wedding in Wiltshire May 2024

“We booked Northern Star for our wedding in May 2024 and could not have been more pleased. They were absolutely fantastic! They learnt our first dance which they did an absolutely beautiful performance of, and even learnt some additional Taylor Swift songs for me as I’m a big Swiftie! They absolutely brought the house down and were also incredibly friendly and personable chaps. We would 100% book them for a future event again and will recommend them to all our friends!”

Absolutely fantastic!

booked Northern Star for their Wedding in Cumbria October 2023

“Northern Star were absolutely incredible! They performed our first dance song and it was done perfectly. From start to finish they had everyone on the dance floor, the songs they played were brilliant and we loved listening to them all night. We had so many people compliment the band, I would highly recommend them and we just wish we could watch them play all over again!”

They made our day so much better!

5 stars - Northern Star are Highly Recommended
booked Northern Star for their Wedding in Hertfordshire October 2023

“Northern Star were absolutely incredible throughout our wedding day. To begin with they were due to play 2 30 minute acoustic sets, however, we were running a bit late so they were extremely accommodating and played a full hour for us during the reception. Throughout the day they were so happy to help, and super friendly! The evening was beyond our wildest dreams - they got people dancing all night and they were so much fun! Even adding in extra songs and changing the lyrics to our names - we have had so many compliments about the band! If you are unsure who to book, look no further than Northern Star!!”
