Preludal Music

As your wedding guests arrive 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. This will create a wonderful ambience and set the scene leading up to 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 live ensures that the piano music you've chosen will be tailored to fit perfectly.

Recessional Music

As soon as the wedding guests are invited to applaud 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.
