Prior to the Wedding day, I am happy for the future Bride and Groom to give me song requests and a general idea of their musical preferences. I am also able to advise them on choices of music for the wedding ceremony. Music choices are an opportunity to personalise the ceremony and make it unique, with contemporary song choices or a more traditional approach with classical music and Wedding Marches. I will also give the couple an opportunity to hear me play particular songs or pieces of music when required to help with the decision making process.
On the day itself I also appreciate the importance of having a good rapport with the guests, sometimes encouraging an element of audience participation at an appropriate time (towards the end of the Wedding Breakfast for example), helping to create an even more friendly and lively atmosphere.
The following ‘thank you’ message was received by email following a wedding at Braxted Park, Essex. It is one of many letters, cards and emails that I have kindly been sent by appreciative Brides and Grooms following happy and successful wedding days:
