RECORDINGS JUST FOR YOU!
We have been fortunate to learn an array of incredible songs over the last 13 years and now, with the completion of our state-of-the-art home audio/video recording studios, we are excited to offer a new service to our couples.
We now have the capability to record and film your favourite songs, wedding first dance, either before the big day comes around to hear it again on your anniversary.
Recording, editing, mixing, and mastering are all processes that we take great care and pride in. Our home recording studio is equipped with the latest and most advanced equipment to ensure that we produce the highest quality audio.
The process of home recording is a detailed and time-consuming one, but it’s a process that we take great pleasure in. We begin by setting up the studio, adjusting the microphones and instrument placements, then we proceed to record the individual tracks. After that, we edit and mix the tracks, adjusting levels, adding effects, and so on. Once we are satisfied with the audio, we move on to the mastering phase, which involves finalizing the audio for the best possible sound quality. For the video recording, we use multiple cameras and different angles to capture the best footage possible and then we use the latest video editing software to edit and color correct the final video.
We are extremely proud of our home recording service and we’d love for you to take a look at some of the testimonials from previous couples to see what they have to say about our results. We hope you’ll be impressed with the quality of our recordings and the care we take in creating them. Allow us to help you capture your special moments and create a lasting memory that you can treasure forever.
“I couldn’t have asked for more from Soph & Mat, when asking them to record and film ‘songbird’ by Eva Cassidy for Shelley’s birthday gift! We had The Distance perform this song whilst Shel walked down the aisle last year, it was phenomenal and brought a tear to my eye. For them to have created something just as beautiful and to have this recording to watch back is something we will both cherish forever.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,”
For Zoe & Joss
“Absolutely amazing! Soph & mat performed during our wedding at New House Farm last year and performed our first dance perfectly – we couldn’t have been happier with their performance on the day, and we couldn’t wait to book in with them to create it all over again… we’ve always loved the original song, but this version will always means so much to us!
Thank you for going above and beyond in everything you have done for us over the last year, on our wedding day and a year later – you are both phenomenal!”
For Naomi & Becca
“Soph and Mat performed all day during our wedding back in 2018, and were absolutely amazing! They learnt and performed a cover of ‘The Future’ by Patrick Wolf for our first dance, which is no mean feat to learn from scratch! We commissioned a recording of it for posterity so we can enjoy it whenever we want. We also paid for a video and audio of The Distance’s fantastic cover of Beyonce’s ‘Crazy in Love’, which walked us down the aisle and brings back some really beautiful memories.
Soph and Mat are always friendly and professional, and gave us estimated timeframes of when we could expect the recordings, and kept to their word. We would happily recommend The Distance for any live performances or recordings.”
For Katie & Simon
“After postponing our wedding 3 times, we wanted to have our first dance recorded by Mat & Soph as a momento for our wedding day, which is finally coming around in 2021. What an absolute treat to be able to hear what will be our beautiful first dance, before our wedding day. We sat in our living room, listening to the recording with tears in our eyes and gave them a standing ovation! 😉
We cannot wait for them to perform during every part of our wedding day next year.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
For Alan & Joyce
“Mat & Sophie performed during our wedding back in 2019, We asked them to learn the Eva Cassidy’ version of ‘Songbird’ and they both knocked it out of the park! When we found out they are now able to offer recording and videos, i jumped at the chance to have our song recorded and filmed by them last year. Sophie’s voice is absolutely stunning, and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful recording. Thank you so much!”
For mollie & Olly
“We booked The Distance as our wedding band during our wedding at the riding school, calke abbey in October, last year. I asked them to learn ‘I’m with you’ by Vance Joy as a surprise for my new wife, Mollie, a song that means a lot to us.
On the day, We were over an hour late to our drinks reception venue due to the weather and unfortunately didn’t catch much of the song on the day. A few weeks later I came across the MP3s and videos that they offer to film for couples and thought it would make a beautiful Christmas present for our first Christmas together!
They definitely did not dissapoint! Mollie was so happy that I commissioned this, it will be something, along with our photos and video of our wedding day, that we can look back on and remember what an amazing day we had, and what an amazing band we were lucky enough to book.
Thank you so much Sophie & Mat – You guys are impeccable at everything you do… We could not be more grateful’
For Rachel & David
“We chose a first dance song that we both love, from an artist we’ve seen live together a few times.
When Soph suggested that The Distance would be able to record a video of them playing the song live, several months before the wedding, we jumped at the chance.
It was lovely to see and hear their version in advance – and the quality of the recording, both the filming and the audio, is excellent. (We’ve also been given an audio clip of the recording.)
We were quite emotional watching knowing we’ll be dancing to this exact version on our wedding day! It’s such a great keepsake, too. Thank you, both!“
For Sarah & Lee
“Sophie & Mat performed during our wedding back back in 2019, they added the perfect musical ambience throughout the entire day and learnt our first dance for us, after our day had finally come around we decided to get in touch with them to see if they would be willing to record the song for us, and 3 weeks later this gorgeous video turned up! It’s breathtaking, I would be lying if i didn’t tear up a little watching it!
We honestly couldn’t have asked for more from them.
Thank you from the bottom of your hearts!”
