A great occasion in any life, but weddings can
also be very stressful to organise. Whether you need an organist, or help in planning music and musicians, then let me work with you as Music Director for your wedding, and I will make sure that the music does justice to your most special day.
Entrance of the Bride:
The moment when all of your hard work and preparations becomes a
reality. The entrance of the bride is not only the start of your big day, but
also of your new life together……From the traditional Bridal March from
Lohengrin, through to the triumphant Te Deum by Charpentier, we can work
together to choose the right music for you to make a stunning entrance into
church. See some suggestions here. I can also arrange a soloist, perhaps a
trumpeter or flautist to give your day that personal touch.
Choice of hymns can make or mar a wedding. It’s so important to choose
songs which are not only special to you, but which your friends and relatives
can sing with ease. I can help and advise you to make the right choices for
your guests. Here are some suggestions. If you would like a choir to help lead
the singing I can arrange one for you.
Signing the Register:
While the registers are being signed, it’s often a good idea to have
some music. This could be organ music, a choir or perhaps a soloist. I can
perform a wide range of pieces on the organ, from traditional to current day
popular songs, or I can also help to source you a choir or a soloist to sing or
perform at this point in the service. See some suggestions for music here.
Procession: Bride + Groom
As the Bride and Groom leave the church as husband and wife to start the
celebrations, a triumphant exit piece is in order. Mendelssohn's Traditional Wedding
March is often played, but other choices may include Toccata from the 5th
Symphony by Widor, or one of the many Trumpet tunes by Clarke, Purcell or
Stanley. See some possible choices here.
If your wedding will not be in a church, but in another licensed venue, this is not a problem.
I can bring portable keyboards and comprehensive sound and amplification equipment as needed to bring the big music experience to your wedding, no matter where it is being held!
