So You Want A... Traditional Wedding?
20 September 2017
We’ve done a few of these themed wedding blogs and it occurred to us that many of you reading our thoughts might simply want something traditional. So what would we put together if you’re looking to book a traditional wedding? Read on dear reader, read on!
Book a harpist for the ceremony
There’s something beautiful about having a harpist play at your wedding and although we love organ music as much as the next person, the sound of a harp emanating through your venue is a truly gorgeous moment. The tinkling of the strings really is the perfect sound to accompany a walk down the aisle and when it comes to tradition, we don’t think there’s much better. Stunning.
Book a string quartet for the drinks reception
When the vows have been spoken and guests have retired for a few drinks, a string quartet is a wonderful accompaniment to their surroundings. The bride and groom will be having their photos taken with the photographer and such a gap shouldn’t be an awkward situation. With the soothing sounds of a string quartet, this is a lovely opportunity to friends old and new to chat to one another on this special day.
Book a jazz band over dinner
The dinner! Many guests’ favourite moment of the day with food, drink and of course, the speeches! The bride and groom often walk from table to table during the lunch or dinner and we find that having some background music certainly enhances the atmosphere. Booking a jazz trio is a great choice with top acts including Bootleg Swing.
Book a function band for the evening
We love function bands! We often hire bands for weddings and even compiled our favourites in a list for your perusal. Not only getting the party started in style, they’re sure to fill your dance floor and ensure many a happy memory as the evening wears on. Able to learn a tune that has a sentimental attachment to the newlyweds or more than capable of rattling through the hits, bands like Le Beat Elite and Bellissima ensure that your wedding will keep rockin’ all night long.
Book a DJ to finish the evening
Bands generally play 3 x 45 minute sets so if you’re wanting to dance and party for longer than three hours, a DJ is a great choice. Able to play virtually any song from the past 70 or 80 years, you’ll be able to seamlessly blend Gangnam Style with Crazy Frog, Agadoo and Ernie, The Fastest Milkman in the West (if you so desire). No matter the genre, our DJs are all hugely experienced and you can relax knowing that your party will still be going long after you head off to the hotel!
