The dance floor was packed all night

5 stars - The Carnations are Highly Recommended
booked The Carnations for their Wedding October 2021

“We booked the band after finding them online and I have to say it was our best decision. From start to finish they have been fantastic. Joe is brilliant with his communication as weddings can be an anxious time but he always put my mind at ease. The band arrived and the party never stopped. Guests have commented at what a fantastic band they were and the dance floor was packed all night. We want to say a huge thank you for celebrating with us and making it a day/night we will never forget. The new Mr & Mrs Reilly.”

“Thank you so much for playing at Rosie and Matt's wedding! Many people have said how much they enjoyed the music - you really kept people dancing all night. You were very helpful in all the stages of planning the event. Thank you!”


Everyone was on the dancefloor all night

5 stars - The Carnations are Highly Recommended
booked The Carnations for their Wedding September 2021

“We booked for our wedding and they were absolutely fantastic. Joe was professional and personable throughout the planning; and was really helpful and positive when we had to postpone our original date due to Covid. In the run-up to the Wedding, he was amenable to arranging an early set-up, which we really appreciated as we were worried about the room turnaround between the meal and the evening reception. All the logistics ran like clockwork on the day and the band were everything we hoped they'd be and more. Everyone was on the dancefloor all night and our guests were all talking about how good the band were. Getting the right band was really important to us and we were delighted with our choice. Thank you so much! xxx”

booked The Carnations for their Wedding August 2021

“We booked for our wedding and couldn’t recommend them more. They were so good and helpful when we made the decision to postpone from our original date. It was 100% worth the wait, we were so impressed, all our guests loved the music and we couldn’t fault anything.”
