Pianist for Your Wedding Ceremony
Music of your choosing to welcome your guests to the wedding venue and the ceremony room and get them seated as quickly as possible. The piano performance is designed to create a stunning sense of occasion for the guests – this is a wedding, not the time to mingle! The live music can begin 30 minutes before the ceremony, or later if desired. A short musical pause then occurs before the bride enters to heighten the sense of anticipation.
The bride enters to specially arranged piano music of the bride and groom’s choosing – with different music for flower girls, bridesmaids and other attendants if desired. This is the moment everyone remembers; the first thing you see on the wedding video, and really sets the flavour for the rest of the day. Choose the bride’s entrance music, and wedding pianist Simon Jordan will play it for you over Skype or FaceTime in advance, so you can time your walk down the aisle.
The pianist can play for other moments during the wedding ceremony, such as hymns, or to accompany friends and family who might like to sing or perform.
The pianist for your wedding then plays for the signing of the register (approximately ten minutes), during the signing process and as the photographer and then the guests take their snaps. It can be difficult to get them seated again without live piano music reminding them of the sense of occasion.
The final musical moment of the wedding ceremony, church or civil, is the departure of the married couple and the guests. Book this pianist for your wedding and pick the music he plays throughout!
Pianist for Your Drinks Reception
The wedding celebrations really begin! As your friends and family pass on their congratulations, the pianist for your wedding plays live music of your choosing as the champagne and orange juice is served. The wedding pianist helps establish a lively party atmosphere.
The pianist then plays background music that can encourage your guests to mingle while the bride and groom are elsewhere with the photographer. Spur-of-the-moment requests are very happily taken, keeping your guests entertained as they wait for you to return from your photo session.
Pianist for Your Wedding Breakfast
The ceremony done, the photos taken, this is where bride and groom can sit down and enjoy a fabulous performance while they eat by wedding pianist Simon Jordan. Music of any style and background to keep the conversation flowing and the party mood continuing as your guests sit down to eat together. You will be seated at the top table, itching to speak to each of your guests, but until then, a mix of great music you have chosen can turn those glances into smiles.
Hiring this pianist for your wedding, you can have all of your favourite music played, allowing you to party and to reminisce with your wedding party and your wedding guests. Make a list of music beforehand, or pass on spur-of-the-moment requests to the pianist – Simon Jordan has an iPad Pro with 2,000 songs, and a musical brain full of hundreds of extra songs and pieces to entertain you all royally while the conversation flows.
