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.

"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

"We recently saw Mark Reeves at a music festival playing the piano, modern songs to classical such as Chopin, and his performance was beautiful and went down well with the audience. I can imagine he would fit in at any type of venue or occasion."

- Maria Vincent (Badgerfest '21, Alvingham, Lincolnshire), Music Festival 31st July/1st August 2021

"Mark played for us at our marquee wedding during the drinks reception and meal. So many of our guests commented on the quality of Mark's playing and how it made such a lovely addition to the event. Mark was very flexible with all aspects of his performance and even performed a duet with one of our friends playing the saxophone. We left it to him to choose the playlist which was perfect for the various stages of the event. He also modified it according to the weather at the time! I would highly recommend Mark for your wedding or any other event."

- Sally & Jonathan (Marquee, Ockley, Surrey), Champagne Drinks Reception and Wedding Breakfast 24 July 2021

"Mark, Thank you for tinkling the ivories so beautifully all year! You are wonderful!"

- Annie (The Posh Club, Crawley, West Sussex), Resident Pianist 17th December 2019

"Mark played at my church wedding and marquee reception and he was absolutely amazing. He was punctual with his email replies, helpful with suggestions and even sent me a shortened sample of the music I'd chosen to walk down the aisle to so that I could practice walking slowly (which didn't actually happen in reality....). Lots of people commented on how good he was. I was slightly worried about the electric piano not sounding authentic but if you closed your eyes you would think it was a grand piano! What really impressed me was after asking Mark if he did any Pink Floyd or Bowie, he learnt a piano version of Pink Floyd "Great Gig in the Sky" which was one of the highlights of our day. 100% 5 stars! Currently looking for an excuse to hire him again...."

- Hannah and Tom (All Saints Church, Tilford, Surrey), Church Wedding Ceremony and Marquee Drinks Reception 7th September 2019

"Hi Mark, we very much enjoyed the music. It was beautiful so thank you so much. It was really lovely to have your beautiful musical talents as part of our day."

- Rebecca and Neville (The Ravenswood, Sharpthorne, West Sussex), Civil Wedding Ceremony and Drinks Reception 25th May 2019
