Weddings, Weddings, Weddings!

So – have you thought about live music for your wedding?  Let me tell you what I do…

Ceremony Music

I can sing for your Ceremony and this is how it usually works…  I sing for maybe 20 minutes before your Ceremony as your guests are arriving and finding their seats.  Then I can sing as you – the bride – make your entrance and walk up the aisle.  Then I can sing 2 or 3 songs while you’re signing the register.  Then last but not least, I can sing something for you both to walk back down the aisle together to.  Some people like to have a solo at some point during the Ceremony too :)

It’s really important to me that your Ceremony music is really special to you and I’m happy to work with you to choose the right songs.  I’m more than happy to learn songs for you if your special songs aren’t already on my playlist.

Drinks Reception

This is a great time to have some live music – everyone is milling around while you’re having your photographs taken and things are a bit more relaxed now the Ceremony is complete :)  I can help to create a great atmosphere for you and your guests.

I’m happy to go with the flow but you can also choose your own playlist from my list of over 300 songs :)

Reception Meal

This works really well too as my style is relaxed and not too loud – so people can enjoy their meal and their conversations but also enjoy the music too!

Early Evening

This could be straight after your meal when your guests want to relax before the party starts in the evening or it can be the first couple of hours of your Evening Reception as your guests are arriving and still want to be able to talk before the music or disco gets a bit louder… ;)

Evening Reception

My style works well for smaller weddings where a full band might be too much…  I can play couple of more lively sets so you and your guests can still have a party and a dance but also you can have something more acoustic and laid back too – the choice is yours :)

So – there you have it – that’s what I do :)  If you think my style would be good for your wedding, please call me on 07787 165536 to chat about your ideas as I’d love to sing for you! x
