Wedding Music

It's not just music for your first dance that you may wish to consider but many gay and lesbian couples now have music for their entrance and exit from the ceremony, entertainment for the reception and perhaps a band or DJ for the evening.

Choosing the music for your service should be a choice personal to you and your partner - which songs reflect you as a couple or have special memories for you? Remember not to go picking any hymns as at a civil ceremony you will not be allowed to select any religious songs.

You may choose to hire a string quartet or harpist before or after the ceremony – this can provide an elegant entrance for you and your guests. The type of music they play should not be too loud or overwhelming to prevent conversations between guests. Choose music that you really like and ask the musicians if there is anything they recommend to give you some ideas. Generally hiring a solo harpist will be cheaper than a string quartet as price can be based on the number of musicians.

Ensure your musicians know exactly how long they are booked for, how long they should play for and how long they may break for between sets.
