Live wedding music ideas

Function Central is the UK’s leading live wedding music entertainment agency. We bring live music to over 1500 events a year and have helped thousands of happy couples start married life on all the right notes. We’ve listed our top suggestions of wedding acts for every part of your day, from classical musicians such as string quartets or harpists to lively wedding bands and wedding DJs.


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. 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, set the right tone for you by choosing from our most popular acts.


The evening party

Book the perfect party band and your guests will be buzzing for days after your wedding. Whether you want a jazz orchestra, ceilidh band, or thoroughly modern function band, our wedding bands play tunes to keep everyone on the dancefloor with hits from the 60s right through to the latest chart-toppers. Many wedding bands also offer a laptop DJ service to keep the music going.
