Think Wedding Music

18th Nov 2010

It has been all Christmas parties this week, so I thought for a change I would blog a little bit about weddings and in particular wedding music. This is an area in which we have vast experience and love to share our knowledge.
There are many important and exciting parts of a wedding day, and music plays a lead role. Each part of a wedding day will involve music - the marriage ceremony, the wedding drinks reception, the wedding breakfast and then the party!
Arguably the most exciting and important part of your wedding day is the ceremony. A church ceremony has many different elements - the arrival of your guests, the entrance of the bride, hymns during the ceremony, the signing of the register and the wedding recessional and music can bring such a magical atmosphere to proceedings. Civil ceremonies can be greatly enhanced with music. Without music a civil ceremony is very short, so music gives you the opportunity of enhancing wedding vows, giving a little more atmosphere, style and substance to your ceremony. Although you are not legally allowed to have any religious music during a civil ceremony, the scope for secular music during a civil ceremony is limited only by your own imagination! 
We have the expertise to advise on all aspects of your wedding ceremony music from the type of musicians and singers required to give your desired effect, to repertoire created especially for you. Our professional opera singers and classical musicians make each element of your wedding ceremony incredibly unique and delightfully memorable creating a real sense of occasion which you and your guests will remember forever.
After the excitement of the wedding ceremony it is time to celebrate with a glass of champagne and some delicious canapés. Uplifting background music will add to the euphoria. There are many different options from string quartets to soloists to bands. We have a wealth of talent to choose from and can advise on what will make this part of the day extra special.
So now we have seen tears of elation, joyous laughter, maybe some impromptu dancing and plenty of champagne - it must be time for the wedding breakfast. After the main course, this is where the real fun starts - surprise your guests with our singing waiters and hidden guests as they join in this incredibly addictive operatic show - napkins waving, glasses swinging from side to side, plenty of laughter and lots of outstanding singing. Or maybe you want to be blown away by a sophisticated opera gala with operatic performers in period costumes, with of course, some audience participation!
Music from the beginning to the end of your special day will provide you with wonderful lasting memories that you will never forget.
And now for our weekly interesting opera fact, did you know that Gioacchino Rossini (1792-1868) wrote one of the most famous operas, The Barber of Seville, in just two weeks - now that is pretty impressive!
