Professional Sounds

The format of a Religious Ceremony, Civil Wedding or Civil Partnership are very similar in terms of music selection:


  • The Prelude: A selection of light and mellow classical pieces is performed to receive the guests into your venue.


  • The Processional: A song is performed for the Main Bridal Entrance.


  • Signing of the Register: Up to three songs are performed whilst the Bride & Groom sign the legal documents and have some pictures taken.


  • The Recessional: A wonderful piece, normally a lively choice, is performed while the couple and their family and friends walk out of the venue.
