  • A Wedding Day provides lots of opportunities for providing entertainment:

  • Before the Ceremony

  • During the Ceremony

  • Signing the Register

  • During the Photos

  • Accompanying the Drinks

  • Background Music during The Wedding Breakfast

  • And..... the Party itself, usually the most memorable aspect of the day.

Opportunities for daytime entertainment vary considerably depending where you’re having your ceremony and your personal tastes. Choose from Harpists, PianistsClassical Guitarists and more. Take a look at the wedding music section of our website for ideas.

Also think about hiring an entertainer to keep your guests enthralled. Whether it be a magician, street performers and circus acts or caricaturists. Our acts will make your night unforgettable!

In order to make sure that the final stage of your big day is memorable, go large for the Evening Party and whatever your theme, nothing beats the experience of music played live.

We have a wide variety of wedding singers for hire, covering many genres and styles from classical to jazzacoustic pop and more and we also list more than 15 categories of wedding music bands!

So where to start? In general, there are two types of band that could play at your Wedding Party: Cover Bands and Style Specific Bands:

Style-Specific Bands
If you’re planning a themed wedding, then you will want to pick your musicians to fit your overall vision.
Jive the night away with 50s/60s Jitterbug Jets or be wowed by the UK’s best Rockabilly band, The Houndogs  - you have to see them to believe them. 

Jukebox Jazz seamlessly combine classic jazz and modern pop. Roaring 20s? Then look no further than Gatsby Goes Pop – the perfect choice for a drinks reception or laid-back party.

Truly professional, these bands live and breathe their theme, and so their performance comes across with great authenticity and flair.
