Wedding Information

General Format For Weddings

For civil ceremonies, you can book us for one hour to cover music as guests arrive, the processional, signing of the register, and your exit piece as you begin to greet your family and friends. Often couples will book us for 1 hour 15 minutes so we continue to provide background music as guests come to congratulate you. If you would like music during your official photographs and as guests are enjoying drinks and canapes, you can book us for 1 hour 30 minutes or as long as you wish.

If you are having a church service, we recommend you book us for 1 hour 15 minutes to cover music as your guests arrive, the processional, the 30 minute service, signing of the register and the recessional as you and your guests exit the church or chapel.

For weddings that involve a full Catholic mass, our booking time is usually 1 hour 30 minutes to cover music as your guests arrive, the processional, offertory, communion, signing of the register and the recessional as you and your guests exit the church or chapel.

The above booking times are guidelines and the exact length can be varied to suit your requirements.

Prior To The Ceremony

We provide music as guests arrive, which is usually 10-15 minutes prior to the time stated on the invitations.

The Ceremony

Music can be played during any or all parts of the ceremony. You may wish to choose music for:-

  • the processional – one piece as your attendants and you walk down the aisle or into the gardens.
  • the signing of the register – one or two pieces.
  • the recessional or exit – one piece as you exit the church or greet family and friends in the gardens.

If you are having a Catholic mass, we also provide music for the offertory and communion.

We can provide music for hymns and any other part of the ceremony where requested.

We are flexible and versatile so the exact format and music within the ceremony is tailored to your wedding.

Wedding Receptions

As guests arrive for your wedding reception, we can create a sophisticated and classy atmosphere by providing background music for your pre-dinner drinks. We can also continue to provide entertainment during your reception itself. Our repertoire ranges from classical and romantic music to jazz and modern covers so you and your guests have a wide variety of music to enjoy.

You can engage us for as long as required.  It can be as short as 30 minutes for pre-dinner drinks, to 6 hours or longer for the entire reception.
