Chris and Charlotte - thank you so much for sharing your special day with Swan Duo! We are so pleased you had such a wonderful day at Kings Chapel!

Here's the review they sent in:
"Swan Duo are both an incredible gentle acoustic "reception drinks" style act and a great full on party band all rolled into one. They absolutely made our wedding day; we received so many comments from our guests at just how good they were. They learnt our first song, and arranged it in the exact way we wanted and the dance floor was never empty whilst they were on in the evening. If you want the sound of a full on band with only two people, then with their clever loop-pedal style they more than deliver. Before the big day, we went through their giant song list and scrubbed which songs we didn't fancy and they stuck to that list - every song was one we wanted. We can't thank Swan Duo enough for absolutely nailing it and making our special day as special as it possibly could be. Out of 5, we'd definitely give them a 10!" ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
