Weddings & Events

 

Who doesn't love the bride's entrance in a wedding ceremony? That beautiful moment when the groom is anxiously watching from the front, the music changes, the guests are asked to stand, and everyone's emotions are running high. 

You know what can really make or break that moment?

The music.

You've probably been to the wedding where the bride walks down the aisle to Train's 'Marry Me' and reaches the altar about thirty-five seconds into the song. The DJ or appointed iPod-player starts to fade out the music midway through the first chorus, making the moment feel abrupt, incomplete, maybe even a little awkward. 

We will help make that moment magical. 

 

We will work with you to choose music that's unique and meaningful to you as a couple. We will bring our expertise to the wedding rehearsal to help coordinate the timing of songs and to fill those inevitable silent transitions with music. We will deliver a beautiful and professional performance and improvise as needed to leave you worry-free on your big day.

I can't say enough good things about Andrew's piano playing at our wedding. In every interaction,  Andrew was professional & warm, and he made the whole process easy. He struck the perfect balance of listening to my ideas, while also providing input from the perspective of a professional when I needed help figuring something out.

Personalize your big day

Live music is such a wonderful opportunity to make your wedding day unique. We love to help couples personalize their ceremony with meaningful musical moments. A few real-life examples of how we've customized ceremony music:

  • A bride wanted her sister to sing during the paper signing. Andrew accompanied her, coached her, helped choose the right key, and made sure everything ran smoothly.

 

  • A groom wanted his bride to walk down the aisle to a favourite Scottish folk song. We arranged the tune for piano and vocals and timed it to perfectly fit the bridal processional.

  • A couple had a favourite poem that they wanted to integrate into the ceremony. Andrew set the poem to music for a choir of the couple's friends and family to sing. (Okay, yes this was our wedding).

And – if music isn't really your thing, we will happily guide you in the planning process.

Andrew performed the music for our wedding in 2016, and it was perfect! All Andrew needed was a list of songs, and he did an amazing job of seamlessly weaving them together. He even made an original arrangement of two of our favourite hymns. With Andrew’s exceptional talent and professionalism, the ceremony flowed beautifully with no extra stress or planning on our part.
