This is where we excel. We ensure that you have no worries about your day and we organise it all for you the way you dreamed it to be.
Many couples are having a themed wedding to celebrate their special day incorporating any ideas they may have. A themed wedding is more popular now as traditional weddings give way to something a little different. Fantaysia themed weddings are more visual and more of what the wishes of the bride and groom wish to have for their day.
When you decide to have a themed wedding you will either be considering a fully themed wedding or a partial themed wedding.
What is the difference?
Fully Themed Wedding The difference of a fully themed wedding is the theme is carried totally through out the day from start to finish and all guests dress to the theme, all food and entertainment, theming to compliment.
Partial Themed Wedding A partial themed wedding is where the guests have optional dress, everything they are part of is themed to what ever extent the couple wish.

If you have a special song that you'd like to be played live but isn't in the band's repertoire the band will learn and play an additional song of your choice. This could for instance be a ballad for the ‘first dance’ at a wedding, or just another dance floor classic.
For additional peace of mind, the band has deputy musicians who rehearse with the band and can usually cover for last minute emergencies and has Public Liability Insurance of up to £10million. Many venues are now insisting that the latter is provided.
LeFunk! will work with you to ensure they fit in to, rather than dictate, the flow of your event. Set lengths can be adjusted to fit in with auctions, raffle results and speeches. Clothing can be funky or formal. Arrival and set up times can usually be arranged to minimise disruption to guests. When you book LeFunk! they won't just turn up on the night and play - they'll work with you before hand to help realise your plans.
