We have played at hundreds of weddings, and know that everything needs to be perfect.
Hopefully this page will explain what we do, and put your mind at rest. We’re often asked “what’s the normal thing for you guys to do?” Everyone has their own idea, but the most standard booking that we have, would be to play for 30 minutes pre ceremony to welcome your guests to your big day. It creates a lovely mood for the whole day, and it’s the part of the day we receive the most positive feedback about. We’d then play for the entrance of the bride, the signing of the register (normally there’s time for 2-3 pieces here) and the exit of the couple. This would be followed by us playing at your drinks reception for one to one and a half hours. However, we can play at whatever point you want us to – it’s your wedding!
You can also discover our Wedding Repertoire here, hopefully you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the huge variety we offer. Please ask us to suggest song choices if you’re unsure about what you’d like to hear. Some people have very definite ideas about what music they want, and some people have no idea. That’s fine, we’re here to help.
We can play 30 minutes pre ceremony, and all the key moments of the ceremony – entrance, signing and exit. We can also play during your hymns if you’d like us to do that, either with the organist, or just on our own if you opt for a ceremony without an organist.
Church weddings usually last 50-60 minutes, so please allow one hour when deciding how long you might like to book us for.
Civil Weddings & Partnerships
We can play 30 minutes pre ceremony, and all the key moments of the ceremony – entrance, signing and exit. Please note, in civil ceremonies there must be no religious music. Pieces like “Jesus Joy” or “Ave Maria” are not permitted.
Civil weddings usually last 25-30 minutes, so please allow 30 minutes when deciding how long you might like to book us for.
