Weddings

I specialise in wedding packages as I offer the rare ability to provide music and sound for every part of the wedding day: from beautiful piano pieces for the wedding ceremony to disco floor fillers for the evening reception – and everything else in between! For example, I can also be the singing guitarist during the drinks reception, play recorded music during the wedding breakfast, provide the microphones for the speeches and even professionally record audio for the most important parts of the day. Or basically whatever combination of instruments / music you require, whenever you require it, for your special day. I have been providing music for weddings for over 15 years all over the UK, please read the reviews from previous clients.

I offer 5 different wedding packages to choose from:

PackageDetailsExamples
Basic packageLive music for only one part of the daye.g. singing guitarist for the drinks reception only
Standard packageA half day booking: live music for two different parts of the daye.g. pianist for wedding ceremony and singing guitarist for drinks reception
Premium PackageA whole day booking – live music, audio and disco available all daye.g. pianist for wedding ceremony, singing guitarist for drinks reception, microphones for speeches and evening disco.
Deluxe PackageA whole day booking plus music and audio productione.g. all of the premium package plus professional recordings of special songs (e.g. first dance) and/or professional audio recording of special parts of the wedding day.
Disco onlyDisco & lighting e.g. for the evening reception

In addition, I am happy to hire a dancefloor and/or decorative big letter lights (e.g. ‘LOVE’) for an additional fee. I will coordinate their drop off and pick up so you have less to think about on the day and I will liaise with the venue so that the dimensions are correct.

Here are two examples of what a ‘whole day booking’ might look like:

Part of dayExample 1Example 2
Wedding ceremonyI play a classical piano piece or your favourite romantic song played as an instrumental for the wedding entrance; a couple of songs for the signing of the register; another piano piece for the wedding procession.I play the original recorded version of your wedding entrance song and then sing two songs on guitar for the signing of the register. Another original recorded song for the wedding procession.
Drinks receptionI then switch to guitar and sing some easy listening, ambient love songs whilst guests mingle and chat, providing the perfect background music for the guests as they begin to settle into the day.I play background piano instrumental pieces of a mixture of classical pieces and famous love songs.
Wedding breakfast & speechesHere I play recorded music from either your playlist or a tailormade playlist. I also provide wireless mics for the speeches so that everyone can laugh along with the best man at the groom’s expense!I sing and play guitar during the wedding breakfast. I play easy listening songs and maybe ‘pick it up’ a bit towards the end as the guests warm up for the speeches! Mics provided for the speeches.
Evening receptionHaving set up the lights, DJ booth and decks earlier in the day, we’re ready to party into the night. I will DJ for however long you want and can either work entirely from your playlist or create my own – or a mixture of the two.I sing and play guitar for the first dance followed by a short set. I then DJ for the next hour or so before doing one final set of uplifting singalong songs before getting back behind the decks for the rest of the evening.
