Wedding Ceremony Prelude
Music defines the most important parts of a wedding. There’s the bride’s aisle walk, the first dance, the last dance and much more so it only makes sense there should be some good music before the celebration begins. Most wedding guests arrive prior to the ceremony therefore it’s a good idea to have music playing to fill the time. This is called the wedding ceremony prelude where music is played for about 30 minutes before the ceremony starts. This normally consists of mellow songs that set the mood for a meaningful day. At Wedding Entertainment Sydney, Mike can set this mood by playing beautiful romantic Spanish/Flamenco guitar as guests arrive and mingle
Wedding Ceremonies normally have two key parts Processionals and Recessionals.
Processionals accompanies the entry of the extended wedding party—family, attendants and bride. The same song can be used for each. Mike offers the changing to another song when the bride enters to add drama and highlight the big entrance.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, the recessional plays. As the name implies, this music accompanies you as you recess (make your exit) and/or signing of the register. This music is traditionally bright, lively and a celebratory reflection of your joy.
Mike has a wide range of songs to choose from for both the Processional and Recessional and can quickly learn new songs if you have one in mind.
The cocktail hour is normally the time after the wedding ceremony when you are having your photographs and guests are milling around awaiting your arrival. It’s basically your pre-reception music. Whether you are hosting your cocktail hour at a ceremony venue, reception venue or a beach or park, having music to entertain your guests will always be welcome and will set the tone for the rest of the celebration. Mike is able to play lively Spanish/Flamenco music to reflect what is a joyous moment and set the tone for the night.
Wedding receptions and the type of music that’s required all vary depending on age groups, cultural backgrounds, personal style and so on. Mike plays elegant flamenco Spanish music for wedding receptions combining solo work and either playing with another guitarist or using backing tracks where a beat is required and you really want to get the party going.
