the place for party ideas and services to help you organise your social or corporate event
The advantage of having a live musician is that they can provide the music for both the ceremony and the wedding breakfast. If you are thinking of hiring anyone to play music for your wedding, the only thing that you really need to concern yourself about is the choice of music for the ceremony. You can of course leave the choice up to the musician, but try and give them a guideline. If you don't want to pick each piece of music for the proceedings then just try giving a style of music or maybe a composer. For a civil ceremony you can have any music you want as long as the title or lyric does not have any reference to religion.
The Civil Ceremony
The civil ceremony has four main part's as far as a musician is concerned and they are:
1) The gathering of the congregation.
2) The Procession
3) The signing of the register
4) The recession
The gathering of the congregation.
The signing of the register.
That's it! The ceremony is over and you can start the celebration.
Pre Meal Drinks
After the ceremony everyone usually starts making a lot of noise. They have so much to say because they've had to keep so quiet throughout all the serious bit.
The Wedding Breakfast
It is rather nice to have live music while everyone is eating and chatting. Most musicians will play right up to the speeches and then finish. They do however, occasionally carry on after if there is a gap between the end of the speeches and the start of the evening's entertainment. All weddings are different and at the end of the day it is up to you and what you would like them to do - so make sure you discuss your requirements with whoever you decide to hire.
