Wedding and Civil Ceremonies

Music during and around the wedding ceremony can contribute to a happy and relaxed atmosphere.

The Mallard Oboe Trio

The Mallard Trio

As guests arrive The Mallard Oboe Trio could be playing to add ambience to the venue.

Suggested music for the Processional: music noteThe Arrival of the Queen of Sheba; La Rejouissance (from Handel’s  Music for The Royal Fireworks).

During the signing of the register you may prefer to hear something completely different, such as an amazing arrangement of A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square or keep to the traditional theme with The Sinfonia from Handel’s Messiah or Faure’s Pavane.

For the Recessional suggestions include music noteThe Wedding March by Mendelssohn and La Rejouissance.

We can also provide the perfect backdrop for your drinks reception and/or meal. Our extensive repertoire will refresh both you and your guests!
