Planning

Our repertoire is suitable for church ceremonies, civil ceremonies and blessings. We can help select appropriate music for the moment your guests arrive, the ceremony and signing of the register - not forgetting the bride’s entrance! - through to the reception and Wedding Breakfast. We are also happy to accompany an instrumental or vocal soloist during the ceremony.

To help with your planning we have listed below some popular suggestions to get you started. All these pieces are in our current repertoire.

Important: Pieces marked with an asterisk are not permitted (by law) in a civil ceremony.
