The Wedding Ceremony

Pre-Ceremony - The quartet normally starts setting up in good time before the Wedding Ceremony and will then play for around half and hour as guests arrive and take up their seats.  For the guest arrival the quartet can either play music that you select from the quartet's repertoire, or simply leave it up to the quartet to play a medley of appropriate music.

The Processional - The Bride's Entrance. Walking up the aisle is always a very special moment and so on request the quartet is happy to arrange a special piece of music just for you, otherwise you can choose from our extensive repertoire list. Please see a list of popular choices below to give you some ideas. If you wish the bridesmaids to enter the ceremony before the bride we can play something special for them too on request.

The Signing of the Register - The quartet will play to your guests during the signing of the register. If you wish to allow for extra time while photographs are being taken then you may wish to consider having the quartet play an additional piece of music.

Hymns - The quartet are happy to play any hymns you wish during the service. There is a popular list of hymns below.

The Recessional - This is usually an uplifting piece of music which is played at the exit from the Ceremony. The quartet can play on until the guests have left the Ceremony and moved to the Drinks Reception.

The Drinks Reception

The quartet would move to the location of 'the Drinks' and play a variety of background music while the photographs are being taken and thus entertain your guests. You can select the pieces you would like to be played from the Repertoire list, or fill in the Music Choices form by ticking the type(s) of music you would prefer, or again you can leave this up to us.

For the 'Drinks Reception' package the quartet can be engaged for up to 3 hours.  This includes the Pre-Ceremony (Guests Arriving) , the Ceremony and the Reception.
