Live wedding music ideas

We'll help you start married life on all the right notes. Here are our top live music suggestions for every part of your day, from aisle to after-party.

Your wedding ceremony

Use live music to create a relaxed atmosphere as guests arrive for the ceremony, then walk down the aisle or sign the register to the sound of your favourite songs. Exit to an epic anthem.

From sophisticated strings to a funky acoustic duo, here are our most popular choices for ceremonies.

Your drinks reception

Hire musicians to play upbeat background music at a non-intrusive volume, so that your guests can relax, chat and mingle after the ceremony.

String quartets are popular at more formal gatherings, while unplugged roaming acts which don’t require power can be handy for outdoor drinks receptions. Here are our top picks.

Your wedding meal

Get your wedding guests relaxed and talking away with live background musicians as you enjoy your wedding meal.

Whether you want a solo singer to keep things chilled or an upbeat jazz trio, we'll help you set the right tone.

The evening party

Book the perfect party band and your guests will be buzzing for days after your wedding. We have bands in all genres, from rock and pop to ceilidh and swing.

Our most popular bands

Our function bands play tunes to keep everyone on the dancefloor with hits from the 50s right through to the latest chart-toppers. Many bands also offer a laptop DJ service to keep the music going.
