Music for pre-ceremony, ceremony and drinks reception
Above is Laura (a train-driver bride) and me playing the piano duet, 'Freight Train Boogie Blues'. This package is my most popular: I play for the Pre-Ceremony (while your guests are being seated in the the ceremony room), then I play for the Entrance of the Bride/Couple, the Signing of the Register & First Photographs, then I play for the exit of the Happy Couple. The Ceremony usually lasts between half an hour and three quarters of an hour, including pre-ceremony. The music for the Ceremony is almost always chosen by the wedding couple, with some useful help and hints from me. Basically, we need to decide on: The Entrance Music (one piece/song) The Signing of the Register & 1st Photos ( 3 pieces/songs) The exit of the Happy Couple (1 preferably upbeat song) The Exit Music can be just piano, or if you prefer, I can easily play a favourite track through my PA system. After the Ceremony, I play for the Drinks Reception which usually follows straight after the Wedding Ceremony. Below is my gorgeous daughter-in-law on her wedding day at The Landmark Hotel, London.
