Music and your wedding
In the past, weddings were almost always religious affairs, with fairly strict guidelines as to what constituted appropriate music for each section.
Modern weddings tend to be more individual and music choices a matter of taste. I have been asked to play everything from "Here comes the bride" and "Something in the way she moves" to "Cannonball" and "Hotel California" as Brides entrance pieces. The choice is generally yours for what is played during each part of your wedding. The exceptions tend to be Church weddings where restrictions may apply to what can be played, so it is always worth checking with the Celebrant before booking.
You will normally decide the order of service with your celebrant and it can be as non-traditional as you like! Once the order is decided on, you can choose the music you want for each section and forward the order and selection to me.
For your reference the following are the traditional sections of the service where music is played.
Prelude - gathering and seating of the Guests
Seating - Mothers and close relations are seated
Processional- the Celebrant, groom, best man and maids of honor take their places.
Brides entrance - Bride and Father, Flower girl/boys, etc. enter and walk up the isle.
Candle lighting/Ring passing/Knot tying ceremony/Communion -the Blessing
Register Signing - the official papers are signed
Recessional - the happy couple walk hand in hand down the isle!
Your ceremony may include all, or some, or extra parts! I have, on occasion, played softly throughout the vows and declarations.
If you have a very clear idea of what you want, confirm the order with your Celebrant and let me know asap.
If you are not sure, let me know the type of music you like and I will make choices based on that, and the order of service.
If you have one favorite piece that you want played at a particular time, just let me know. If it is a piece not on my list please give me at least 3 months lead time.
It's beautiful live guitar music, you can't make a bad choice!
It's your wedding, have it your way!
You can see my song list by clicking on the" song list" link in the Menu, but, you may not see the song you want, or you may want a mixture of solo guitar, songs played from your phone, or, maybe your sister wants someone to back her up while she sings you down the isle or maybe she wants to play the guitar too!
Its not a problem, its what I do. If you have a special song not on the list let me know and if its possible to play on guitar I'll learn it. This will include an extra fee, as it will need to be arranged and learned. I can download any song you want onto my looper and with a tap of my foot, play it at any point during the ceremony. I can play while your sister sings or provide her with a nylon, steel string or electric guitar, mic and music stand. I have even played while the bride and all the guests surprised the Groom by singing the Bride to the Alter! Almost any combination is possible, just ask me.
