Having live string music on your wedding day can add a wonderful touch to your ceremony. Different, memorable, romantic - it lifts the occasion.

So where does a couple start? How can strings be woven into their special day?

Pre-ceremony

Couples often ask us to play background music prior to their ceremony as guests arrive. The rich sounds of strings make a wonderful impression and having light background music playing can add to the occasion. We are usually asked to play 15-30 minutes before the formalities are scheduled to begin, depending on how early couples are expecting their guests to arrive.

Ceremony

Couples tend to request particular songs/pieces to be performed at the 3 main musical moments during the formalities. These are:

1. Processional (aisle walk)

2. Signing the register

3. Recessional  (couple presented/exit music)

Other possible moments for music could include during a candle lighting ceremony, communion or cake cutting. We are happy to suggest pieces if you'd like help. Please see our music list for inspiration.

Post-ceremony

The following moments provide further opportunities for string music at your wedding:

  • After the ceremony during an informal period of canapes and mingling

  • Bridal party entrance

  • During a meal

  • First dance
