Your ceremony is probably the most special part of your day as this is where you formally make a lifelong commitment to your partner in front of all your friends and family. This is why the music you choose is so important as it will set the tone and atmosphere for your big day. I specialise in providing music for humanist, spiritual and civil ceremonies but I also have experience in doing church ceremonies. For most ceremonies you need to choose about 4-5 songs.The most important parts of the ceremony to choose songs for are; the bridal entrance, the signing of the register and then the exit music. After that you might want a song for after a reading or during the sand ceremony in a humanist wedding for example.Check out my repertoire page for my full list of songs.
Drinks Reception Music:
This is the part of your day where your wedding guests get to relax and chill out after your ceremony and it generally lasts about 2 hours. You'll more than likely be out getting photographs taken so a good part of this you'll end up missing I'm afraid! I can play upbeat or chilled out music and what I play will very much depend on the vibe and how many guests are there. If most of the guests are still outside and haven't made it to the Champagne reception room it's probably more suitable to play something more laid back. I'll pick it up then and play something more lively when the room gets busier. Don't worry the music will be loud enough for the guests to hear but it won't have any impact on their conversation!
Music During Your Meal
After the actual marriage ceremony this is the main event of every wedding! There is so much planning and thought needed for the meal when you have to consider the table plan, your menu, what type of chair covers you need and the type of flowers you'd like as centrepieces on the tables. When you're going to this much effort for your meal why not add to the occasion with some lovely background music that will compliment the delicious food that is being served. Music and food-there's not a better combo!!
