If you include one luxury on your wedding day, let it be live classical music!

We’re consistently thanked for providing one of the most memorable parts of the whole day, and as musicians it is a huge privilege to help create and share in that moment.

Get in touch with Lizzie to chat about your day, or take a look at some of our suggestions below.

 
 

Your Ceremony

 
The performance was magical and made our day so beautiful and unique.

For classical music aficionados you’ll probably know exactly what instrument and pieces you’d like played at your wedding.

For the rest of us, we’ve put together our Top Picks for Wedding Musicians and Music below to provide a little inspiration!

Our recommendation for a solo instrument:

Harpist

 

If you’re looking for just one instrument the harp is perfect, it creates a whole sound world and can play wide range of pieces from Handel and Mozart to renditions of your favourite pop tunes with a classical twist.

They also look beautiful in the photos!

Our recommendation for a solo singer:

Soprano

 

Our top pick! Whether you’re having a religious ceremony or not, you’ll never forget being sung down the aisle by a beautiful voice. Guaranteed to take your breath away (we even had one Father of the Bride say he had to check his Apple Watch that his heart was still beating!!).

Either accompanied by an organist, working with an instrumentalist (harp, guitar or string quartet works really well), high quality orchestral backing tracks or a cappella.
