Matthew and Luzio met on a beach in Rio De Janeiro. “Matthew was advising someone about his allergies, but the person didn't speak English,” says Luzio. “I stepped in to translate, and we got talking. We had our first date later that evening and were instantly attracted to each other.”
Luzio was in for a surprise when Matthew proposed during a helicopter tour. “We flew around Rio De Janeiro and then hovered in front of Christ the Redeemer,” shares Luzio. “I was looking at the statue when Matthew called my name. I turned around, and he was holding the ring and asked me to marry him. We had champagne in the sky as we continued our flight. There was a photographer, but I was told they were taking pictures of the flight for their website, but it turns out they were really there to capture our engagement. It was a truly unforgettable moment.”

Christina and James fell in love with their wedding venue, The Exchange Hotel.
Christina tells us: "The Exchange Hotel has always been a special place for us. We based our wedding around live music, and our venue needed to reflect that. When we saw that the hotel, which had once been a music venue, was available it fit our idea perfectly. We visited it during a wedding fair and instantly fell in love.

Alice from Entertainment Nation tells us more about their company. "We at Entertainment Nation are experts in making your entertainment dreams become a reality. We have a roster of jaw-dropping musicians, who are all vetted, professional performers with the reviews to prove it. From contemporary pop bands to soul and Motown groups, jazz collectives and string quartets – we've got it all.
"Our dedicated advisers help pinpoint your vision, down to the number of vocalists you'd like, your chosen set times and the sound you're after. Next, we'll send through bands and musicians who not only suit your chosen style but are available and within your budget. We'll help answer any questions you have and get your act booked in with a secure contact. All you need to worry about is having some comfy dancing shoes.
"Our performers offer different packages and performances depending on the act. However, most bands will have a standard setlist of 2x60 or 3x40 minutes with options to add on extra sets for your ceremony and/or drinks reception. Alternatively, line-ups are also an option, adding more vocalists or even a sizzling horn selection."

Harpist Helen Barley tells us more about her company. "I'm a harpist specialising in weddings and am passionate about helping couples have the best day possible. My many different harps are available for all situations, and amplification can be provided if required. I can play in a wide variety of musical genres, according to your tastes.
"When couples book my services, I give my full commitment to providing the perfect music for the ceremony, drinks reception or wedding breakfast. To that end, I offer a free consultation at my home for couples to see and hear the harps and discuss musical options. This can take place in my COVID-19 secure covered outdoor space or indoors if Government guidelines allow.
"My charges depend on the date, location and which part of the wedding need my services. My minimum cost is £290 for any part of the wedding. For two parts, such as the ceremony and drinks reception, I would typically charge £390. I don't charge by the hour as I've found weddings rarely run on time, so I prefer to charge for the event and then it doesn't matter if it runs a bit late."
