The most versatile of all musical instruments, the piano can be romantic, emotional and beautiful but it can also bring a great deal of fun and entertainment to your day.
Live piano music can provide a beautiful and romantic background to your wedding ceremony. From the moment your guests are seated through to your exit down the aisle as newlyweds, Benjamin’s piano playing will “set the scene” and create the perfect ambience.
The arrival of guests (10-30 minutes of music)
The entrance or “Procession”of the bride (usually 1 piece of music)
The signing of the register (often 2-3 pieces of music)
The exit or “Recession” of the bride and groom (1 piece of music)
The Reception, sometimes referred to as the Drinks Reception, is the period of time immediately following your Ceremony when you and your guests can unwind and begin the celebrations, often with some welcome drinks and canapés. It is also the main opportunity for your photographer to capture photos of you at various locations throughout your chosen venue.
Choosing more “up-beat” piano music during this time will not only entertain your wedding guests during the photos, it will also compliment the more lively and celebratory atmosphere that comes with the Reception.
Benjamin is able to play from the start of your Reception up until the moment your guests are invited in to take their seats for the Wedding Breakfast. Typically, 15-20 songs or pieces of music can be covered during the Reception.
The piano is the ideal choice of instrument to have during your Wedding Breakfast as it can be heard nicely in the background whilst you all enjoy your meal.
Choosing appropriate music can really help to “bring everyone together” as it were during this part of the day. You may wish to ask your friends and relatives what their favourite songs or pieces of music are and then have them played during the meal. Popular songs, Film Music, Show Tunes, Classical and Jazz music all work extremely well.
Benjamin is able be play throughout the duration of your meal. Again, there is usually time for about 15-20 songs/pieces of music during the Wedding Breakfast.
