Weddings Page Picture


Your wedding day will be one of the most memorable days in your life. The music you choose will enhance the occasion from the moment your guests arrive, through the ceremony, reception, wedding breakfast and beyond.

We have many years experience of playing at weddings, and can therefore help advise you about your selection of music to create just the right atmosphere for your day. We pride ourselves on our flexible approach and are willing to play for as much of the wedding day as you require.

We can compile a programme of music to suit all tastes and preferences; classical, light, jazz or popular, or a combination of all of these. If your favourite piece is not included on our list we will happily arrange it for an additional fee of £30.

For civil ceremonies please remember to check your music choices with your Registrar.
