Wedding Music and Entertainment
Wedding music and wedding entertainment are a very important aspect of your wedding day celebrations for creating the right ambience, making your guests feel comfortable and for making your wedding day a day to remember. Wedding music and entertainment is a particular speciality of mine. My repertoire covers many styles from the fifties to current chart hits and includes pop, rock, disco, party music, background music, classical and singalong music - something for all age groups and tastes.
I can provide different styles of music for the different aspects of your wedding day, weather you need a wedding pianist for your civil ceremony / reception or a piano vocalist to play during your wedding champagne drinks reception, the wedding breakfast / wedding reception or the evening function. Choose your favourite songs and I will endeavour to incorporate them into your celebrations.
Wedding Champagne Drinks Reception
Before your wedding breakfast / reception or evening party and whilst your guests arrive is the perfect time for your everyone to relax and get acquainted with one another and in the mood for the wedding breakfast or evening party to follow.
This is the perfect time for people to mingle, have a chat & catch up on old times. The music would be a mixture of well known songs for easy listening and I would also take requests and keep the music at a comfortable volume so that guests are able to converse easily.
Wedding Breakfast or Wedding Reception
Before your wedding breakfast / reception, whilst your guests arrive and during the meal I would play a selection of ballads, love songs and background music that would be unobtrusive to your guests and create the right ambience for your wedding reception. If there were any songs that you would like me to play, I would include them also and I would supply a CD player for subtle background music in my break or for any of your favourite tracks.
.....'Thank you for the wonderful entertainment. Your music was superb during the wedding breakfast and afterwards. In fact nobody wanted to leave and nobody wanted you to leave. We have had only positive comments about the day and without your music I doubt if our day would have been such a success. Thank you again for making our day so special and we hope we will be lucky enough to hear you play again' - Ivor & Debbie
Evening Functions, Wedding Entertainment
The music I would perform for your evening function would be different to the music for a civil ceremony or a wedding breakfast (outlined above). You would be able to choose a song for your first dance and any others that you may like. During the evening I would play a variety of dance, party music and crowd pleasers for all ages and tastes. I would try to play any requests and for my breaks would try to keep the party atmosphere alive with similar disco and party music on CD's.
Some couples like to have a disco as well as myself, which always works well by giving a variety of 'live' and recorded music. I would work with the DJ to make the evening flow smoothly and keep your guests happy with our different styles of music.
......'We both wanted to thank you for the music & entertainment you provided on Saturday night. We had concerns using a DJ because of the different age groups - we wanted to provide something for everyone and you definitely achieved that. Apart from including all of our requests, songs that are important to us for various reasons, you chose additional songs that went well with the atmosphere at that time. We had lots of people come up to us to say how much they enjoyed the music, including the management & bar staff at the hotel - you definitely made an impression there! Most importantly, you always have a smile on your face! You can really tell you enjoy your work, you put everything into it, and that really rubbed off on the party on Saturday. Thanks again and please put into your diary for our anniversary. - Neil & Emily
Civil Weddings and Ceremonies
Music for civil ceremonies will be chosen by yourselves and could include ballads, love songs or classics, with vocals or played just on the piano / keyboard. I always carry a CD player with me, so if you would like to supply a CD with your favourite pieces for the ceremony, that could also be accomodated.

Canon in D - Pachelbel,
Ode To Joy - Beethoven
