Wedding Music

Repertoire

The exact music you choose to have at your wedding is, of course, entirely up to you apart, of course, from some legal restrictions (show/hide).

Whether you want a traditional approach, or something more quirky, or something deeply personal to yourselves, there is a world of music out there from which to choose. Our job is to help you choose and then to make that choice a reality.

Very often the music that the client chooses is not written for the ensemble that will be performing it. For example, When I’m Sixty-Four obviously wasn’t written for a string quartet! Most music, however, can be arranged for different ensembles if required. During the consultation process we look at the whole picture to make sure the repertoire will fit with the ensemble and/or vice versa. If an arrangement is required we can provide this at an additional fee. Arranging is a skilled and detailed job and can take a lot of time as well as requiring extra rehearsal time, so we like to have as much advanced notice as possible.
