Test 9
The iGency will be supplying lots of great entertainment throughout the day at  Cwtchfest. If you are thinking of booking entertainment for your big day come and see our team live on 17th April. In most circumstances it is not possible to see our bands live as they perform at private functions. Cwtchfest is a rare and exclusive opportunity to see for yourself  the magic a live band can bring to your wedding. Amongst the line up on the day will be our top bands iPop, iRock, Indienational & iLectric who’s vocalist Shellyann has recently appeared on ‘The Voice’. We will also be showcasing some other great wedding entertainment options.
Test 7
Live entertainment is such a special part of any wedding it will be a talking point for years to come. So much of the feedback we receive talks about the ‘band making the night’,  ‘creating an amazing atmosphere’, ‘filling the dance floor’… the right band truly does just that, nothing else beats it.  My advice when booking a band would be do not just go for the cheapest option like anything you get what you pay for, anyone can call themselves a “wedding band” but chances are the reason they are cheapest is because they are not as good.  When booking one of our acts you pay for experience, professionalism of the highest standard on & off stage, great equipment and a stress free booking process. A great band will make the night a bad band can break it… ;) You can select one of our brilliant ready made acts or let us create something completely bespoke to make your vision a reality.

We hope to see you at Cwtchfest on 17th April for a taster of what we offer, it would be great to meet you.  Drop us a line before hand if you are interested in a particular band and we can advise you on the schedule for the day.

Our Rustic Bride Kristy

I am a massive believer in fate and Our Rustic Bride Kristy is the perfect example of this. How many of us can say we are marrying our university sweetheart. This beautiful lady is going to have a wedding with lots of handmade items but the thing that is going to play a big part of the day is music…cuddle up on the sofa with a cup of hot chocolate and fall in love with Kristy the way we have…..!!! 

IMAG0976Hi there, my name is Kristy and I have been given the wonderful opportunity to share my experiences over the next 9 months heading towards our wedding!! I am now 30 years old and have been waiting for the day that my perfect man would ask me to marry him since I was a teenager. I was lucky enough  to find my English man Kieron when I was 18. It was the day I left home for Cardiff university. Not originally the university I wanted to get into I must admit, but a last minute effort to apply through clearing secured me a place. Unfortunately due to it being a bit rushed I didn’t get into student residences and had to find my own accommodation. The day I arrived (18.09.04) I knocked on the door and this tall, blonde haired, blue eyed boy answered and introduced himself as Kieron. We both went about the business of moving in. When our families left I found myself nervously standing in the kitchen alone, I decided I didn’t want to be alone so I spent the afternoon in Kierons room chatting away. I knew instantly that I really liked him. It was later that night while watching Shrek we had our first kiss. We have never lived apart since. We are best friends and soul mates and I can’t wait to become his wife a day before our 12th anniversary together. As you can see, I have waited a long time for this!

DIGITAL CAMERAIMAG0715

I was born and have always lived in Wales. I was brought up in a small town outside Carmarthen before moving to Cardiff for university (where Kieron and I met). Since then we have been living in an even smaller town outside of Swansea.IMAG1231

I qualified as a midwife just over two years ago. I think it is definately a calling and I love it. I work both day and night shifts, and going for bridal appointments following night shifts has led to some very entertaining conversations and I think some unusual decisions!more recent 2015

I am an active girl –  I enjoy yoga and pilates. I love to dance, and don my ballet shoes often. I like to get out and about with Kieron and our fur baby Indi. She’s a relatively new addition to the unit, she is the most ridiculous little thing but definitely keeps us on our toes!indi pup

This year, I just cant wait to finally become a Mrs. To have both of our families in one place at the same time. Our families being seperated by the river Severn has not allowed this before. And of course the HONEYMOON!P1020959
