The Perfect Wedding
Great music plays a leading role in both the ceremony and reception stage of a successful wedding.
For ceremonies I suggest these proven choices for the order and style of music-
relaxing instrumental music during the arrival of guests
a unique instrumental piece during the processional or the traditional ‘Bridal Chorus’ if preferred.
a vocal number or instrumental music during the signing and/or sand ceremony (if applicable)
an instrumental piece during the recessional
For ceremonies outside of the church such as beach and private residence weddings, it is also nice to continue with some light pop/rock acoustic guitar vocal hits. This is particularly popular during the cocktail period of the reception.
Of course I am happy to meet and correspond with the Bride and Groom to ensure that the music chosen suits their taste and choice.
If there is a favorite song of the Bride and Groom that you would like to be performed at the ceremony , I am very willing as always to learn if it is not already in my repertoire.
