Preludal Music

As your wedding guests arrive at the venue and take their seats prior to the start of the ceremony they will be treated to a selection of beautifully-played relaxing light classical music and romantic movie themes, as listed on the Repertoire page here. This will create a wonderful romantic ambience and set the scene in preparation for the arrival and entrance of the Bridal Party.


Processional Music

Perhaps the most important music of the wedding ceremony, the Processional Music heralds the arrival and entrance of the Bridal Party and accompanies them during their walk down the aisle. Mark Reeves has the experience and expertise required of a professional wedding pianist to ensure the music is played right on cue and brought neatly to a close at the appropriate moment.

Register-Signing Music

Atmospheric piano music is played in the background whilst the bride and groom attend to the legal formalities of the proceedings and the official wedding photographer captures the moment on camera. The amount of time this takes varies at each wedding ceremony, so having a wedding pianist perform the music live ensures that the piano music you've chosen will be tailored to fit perfectly on the day.

Recessional Music

As soon as the wedding guests are invited to stand and congratulate the Newly Weds, your professional wedding pianist, Mark Reeves, will launch into the piano music you've chosen to mark the end of the ceremony and the beginning of the celebrations! The music will continue to accompany the Bride and Groom as they make their way back down the aisle, followed by their guests.

Drinks Reception Music

Once the wedding ceremony has finished, Mark Reeves will create the perfect atmosphere for celebrating your special day as you mingle and chat with your wedding guests during the champagne drinks and canapés reception. The live piano music can continue whilst your wedding photos are being taken, keeping everyone entertained until it's time to sit down and enjoy the wedding breakfast.

Wedding Breakfast Music

Nothing can beat live romantic piano music for creating the perfect ambience during your wedding breakfast. Romantic ballads from yesteryear, contemporary love songs, romantic movie themes, light classical music...the finest piano solo music you could wish to have played especially for you as you share your wedding breakfast with your nearest and dearest.

"Mark played for us at our wedding ceremony and reception . The music was excellent and both our guests and us thought his choice of music was spot on and played extremely well. In the run up to our wedding Mark was very responsive and helpful with last minute details. We could not recommend him enough. Thanks Again Mark."

- Sonia and Tony (Woodcote Park Golf Club, Epsom, Surrey), Civil Wedding Ceremony 20th May 2022

"Mark played so beautifully at my Son's Wedding at Ramster Hall this weekend. There was a professional musician who was a guest, who even complimented Mark's playing. He is a lovely man, arrived in plenty of time and made the day very special. Highly recommend him."

- Alistair and Hollie (Ramster Hall, Chiddingfold, Surrey), Civil Wedding Ceremony 16th April 2022

"Mark was nothing short of exceptional!! He played on our wedding day during our religious ceremony as I walked down the aisle and during the entire wedding breakfast reception and for our first dance. Mark has a large, impressive and varied repertoire. He is very talented musically, dedicated, polite, reliable, hard working, calm, responsive and kind. He played beautifully and many of our guests commented on this. We could see our guests dancing to the music and smiling. Mark was able to improvise fast when we had a last minute change to the order of the day. He took the initiative and played the venue’s piano when our first dance setting changed alleviating a potentially stressful situation. Mark kept us entertained throughout the entire day. Mark really did go the extra mile, kindly learning various piano pieces and sending us clips. Mark made the effort to learn many of these songs from scratch which were not mainstream (including a mix of western, French and Pakistani music representing our cultures) and even sent us clips so that we could practice our first dance. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mark for any event. I am sure he would make any event golden. Thank you Mark."

- Maria and Clément (The Roseate, Reading), Civil Wedding Ceremony, Champagne Drinks Reception and Wedding Breakfast 9th October 2021

"We had the most wonderful day and we can’t thank you enough for the amazing music. The repertoire playlist is such a lovely memento - so thank you."

- Lisa and Nick (Devonshire Terrace, Aldgate, London), Civil Wedding Ceremony and Champagne Drinks Reception 28th August 2021
