The trend for couples to be married at the reception venue is becoming increasingly popular and the good news is that most venues are now licenced for this, saving you money.
If this is your choice then you will need to make arrangements for music during the ceremony because, as well as your 'Processional' and 'Recessional', there's also the 'Prelude' (before the ceremony starts) and the 'Interlude' whilst you and your witnesses are signing the register and having photographs taken. For each of these events you can create the right mood and emotion with your choices of music to enhance and personalise the occasion.
There are a number of options:
You could hire an organist or harpist.
You could simply use a home CD player (which is what a lot of wedding venues do - and often it's left to your wedding co-ordinater to remember to press play at the right time)
Or you could consider the following:which allows all your guests to hear the same level of music wherever they are in the room.
i can provide the music for your ceremony by installing a discreet line array speaker to play you music ( or if having a ceremony outside I can provide a wireless speaker which needs no ugly electricity cables).
For music choices there is a restriction on religious music / Hymns during a Civil Ceremony.
Apart from that you can choose to walk down the aisle to anything from the traditional 'Here Comes the Bride' to your favourite TV Theme tune!
I can supply / source edit most music so you can make your Ceremony as individual and unique as you wish.
If you are expecting more than 100 guests at your ceremony you may also want to consider having a microphone available so that all your guests can hear your vows. I can supply an unobtrusive lapel microphone so that it doesn't intrude into your wedding photographs or video
A system that fills your ceremony location with elegant sound without intruding on the beautiful scene you have created can set the scene for a wonderful day.
