The Sound Track to your Big Day!


Music has become an integral part in a wedding celebration. From the walk down the aisle to entertaining your guests during the drinks reception, creating the right ambience for your wedding breakfast and of course the all-important first dance!



Ceremony music for example, you will need more music than you think! Our suggestions are -

A 20 minute playlist for while you guests are waiting -

1 Entrance Track

2 Tracks for signing your paperwork

1 Upbeat Exit Track


If you are providing your ceremony music on your phone, be sure to

  • Put the tracks on separate playlists so your Guests Waiting music doesn't flow into your aisle walk music

  • Download all tracks so the phone/tablet can be put on airplane mode so no notifications come through!
