The Handmade Music Company was founded by Colin McIlhagga BMus MMus ISM. Colin studied Trumpet Performance at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, before going on to study for a Masters in Composition at the London College of Music. He created The Handmade Music Company in 2017, after being asked to compose the Bridal entrance music for a number of weddings. In the process, Colin helped make those special days unforgettable. With years of experience creating elegant music, we will compose original music for you that will last forever.

You will receive a copy of your bespoke compositions, recorded on vinyl with a beautiful sleeve cover. You will also receive a digital copy of your compositions.
You will receive a copy of the sheet music dedicated to the bride and groom, printed on stunning manuscript and beautifully framed.
The Handmade Music Company is on hand to provide expert advice on how to create the perfect playlist for your wedding day, and what pieces sound the best with the chosen instrumentation. If you have any questions, please contact us.
After you purchase your package, we will send you a short questionnaire in which you can indicate which style of music you would like. You will also get a chance to write in any special requests such as specific instruments, list any pieces that are very meaningful to you and are of a similar style to what you would like. After carefully listening to you, The Handmade Music Company will compose bespoke music just for you, perfectly matching your brief.
You are more than welcome to give the piece a title of your choice. For example something that is very special to you both, or the place where you first met. If not we will happily give the piece a title as beautiful as the music itself.
Unfortunately the Handmade Music Company cannot provide bespoke lyrics; however if you have any readings or poems that are significant to you we can set these to music. If you are unsure what style of music, or which/how many instruments you would like, please contact us and we can assist you.
