The 4-Step Song Custom Song Creation Process
Here’s how our process works from blank slate to radio-ready custom song in just 4 steps.
To get started with your custom wedding song we need to find out about your unique love story. So we we send you a bunch of questions from which your answers will form the basis of the lyrics to your song.
Once you're happy with the lyrics and the message of your song, we'll create a basic demo with a vocal melody over guitar or piano. This step really brings your song to life, since we're translating words on a screen into a song!
Next we take the demo and turn it into a radio-quality custom song.
You can either keep things stripped back and simple and go for an acoustic produciton, or turn your song into an epic full production with percussion, strings and full band.
I detail these two options below.
We then mix and master the song to bring it to commercial song quality.
If you're wanting that stripped back, intimate vibe then an acoustic song is the way to go. The song will usually have a vocal, piano or guitar and bass.
This package is also better suited to tighter budgets.

All our work is custom and to our client’s specifications. You'll have the opportunity to give feedback and review the song at all stages of the writing and production process to make sure you're 100% happy with the finished song!
