LIVE MUSIC ON YOUR WEDDING DAY
Live music is an essential part of the big day - it can bring the atmosphere alive and make moments throughout the day unique to your wedding. By hiring a professional musician, you can ensure that you get the most out of each element of the day and don't miss out on any opportunities to make every moment as special as it can be.
The part of your day where the whole wedding becomes official - live music can be used to create the perfect atmosphere with carefully chosen songs unique to you both. My Ceremony Package includes live music whilst your guests are being seated, for the processional, signing of the register song and a recessional piece.
AFTERNOON DRINKS RECEPTION
My most popular wedding service is a tailored live set immediately after your wedding ceremony. This set is normally 1hr30 in length and will take you through to your wedding breakfast. I will work with you to ensure the live music is exactly as you wish, creating a nice atmosphere for you and your guests whilst everyone is celebrating, catching up and having photos taken.
Some couples prefer a live music set during their wedding breakfast which can either provide a nice relaxed background atmosphere, a build up to your speeches / evening reception or a bit of both. I can also provide a digital wireless mic for speeches and announcements.
THE FIRST DANCE
This is possibly the last formal part of your day and again a great chance to choose a song that's unique to you or one that has a special meaning for you both. A live version of your first dance makes it even more memorable and I can also provide a recording as a momento for you to keep after the wedding.
EVENING RECEPTION LIVE SETS
Live music as your guests arrive is the perfect way to start your evening reception and set you up for the evening. For those who are looking to step it up a notch, I also offer a Live Duo option with Benji who also plays the guitar and sings. Together we create a rocking atmosphere which will raise the roof, making it a night to remember.
EVENING RECEPTION FULL PACKAGE
For the full experience, I can offer a seamless mix of live sets and DJ sets for your evening, taking care of the music for you and keeping you and your guests throughly entertained. There are no iTunes playlists here, I professionally mix in each song and can take requests and tailor the music in both the live sets and DJ sets covering all bases!
