Ideas for Live Wedding Music

  • Music on Arrival

    There can often be a lengthy wait whilst people settle into their seats and anticipate the bride’s arrival. Live music playing in the background will help to create the perfect atmosphere in preparation for the start of the ceremony. Our very own Bow Fiddle String Quartet would fill that gap perfectly!

  • Signing Of The Register

    The guests at your wedding will have a small wait whilst the bride and groom sign the register. Some subtle live music will sustain the mood of the ceremony, Helen Nash’s beautiful piano playing may be just what you’re looking for.

  • Exit Music

    This is a moment of great joy and the final part of the ceremony. We recommend complementing the couple’s exit with something a little more upbeat. Luke Higgins, our singing guitarist would be an excellent choice.

  • Drinks Reception

    Once the ceremony is complete it is usual for the guests to congregate at a drinks reception. Allow your guests to meet and greet with the accompaniment of some live music, we have several jazz bands for hire that could provide something understated, like our very own Swing City.

  • The Wedding Breakfast

    This is the first meal that the newlyweds will have as husband and wife. Whilst you might think that the best man’s speech is entertainment enough, you may wish to provide some entertainment that isn’t going to turn the groom’s face pink! One of our many fabulous soloist for hire would be perfect soundtrack to your meal.

  • Evening Entertainment

    The quality of your evening event is what is going to keep people talking about your day for years to come. It’s your opportunity to show your friends that you still know how to throw a good party! We have a fine selection of party bands for hire that are going to ensure your night is kept exciting for all of your guests.
