Music for Civil Weddings
For many, the traditional Wedding Ceremony held in a Church or Chapel, is now longer relevant or practical for couples getting married, particularly if you have very strong thoughts on religion, or perhaps if it is your second time round.
In the past, if you decided not to go down the “traditional” route, your only option was to hold the Ceremony at your local Registrar Office, but over the last few years, there are increasingly diverse options in terms of the venues that hold licences to host Wedding Ceremonies. These can range from Hotels to Country Houses or from Lighthouses to education establishments. In fact Mrs. Wife and I were married in the Undercroft at the fantastic Cardiff Castle!
Having the Ceremony at these venues is great, as you are free to design your dream wedding, however this throws up the issue of what music you have. What does the Bride walk in to for her “grand entrance”? Clearly there is no church or chapel organ and the only other option is the dreaded CD player or house PA (if there is one).
The latter option may be nice and cheap/free, but it has as much soul and vitality as a corpse! LIVE music however, will certainly guarantee to get the tears rolling (for all the right reasons!), the hairs on the back of your neck stood up on end and goose-bumps galore.
Brides – Regardless of whether you have a bold and triumphant fanfare, or a calm and serene entrance, you want it to be special, meaningful and most importantly – memorable! Only LIVE music can achieve this, creating the right mood and ambience for the rest of the proceedings and it will be one of the best decisions you make regarding your “big day”.
Let’s face it; the entrance of the Bride is the first and most eagerly awaited moment of the day – so make it a good one!
Needless to say, Clare (my Wife) entered our Wedding to the sounds of the Fanfare Trumpets of The Regimental Band of The Royal Welsh and the rest of the music was provided by the Music for You Brass Quintet. “Unforgettable!” Not my words, but of my new Wife and so many of the guests who attended that day.
