When looking for wedding bands to hire, there’s a good chance you’re imagining a room full of excited (and perhaps slightly intoxicated) friends and family, dancing to live covers of old classics. And while that’s the reality for many, wedding music hire goes much further – from the style of music to the orchestration of the entire event.
To ensure you get the most out of hiring a wedding band, you need to consider the three main sections of your big day: the ceremony, the drinks reception, and the evening celebrations. At each of these stages the location, vibe, and attendees usually differ. And that means the music should too.
So to help you find the perfect top-to-bottom soundtrack, we’ve broken down the best types of wedding bands to hire for each part of your special day.
Best Ceremony Wedding Bands To Hire
Well-considered wedding band hire helps you set the scene for your ceremony. Those magical moments before and after saying ‘I do’ will stay with you forever – as will your choice of music. The right band will seamlessly transition the entry into the venue, the moments leading up to the service, and the triumphant exit.
Our specially selected roster of ceremony wedding bands for hire covers all tastes. Go for classic subtlety with solo harpists, string quartets, or acoustic guitarists. Or up the energy with a jazz ensemble or gospel choir. Whatever your preference, our artists know exactly how to deliver during those special moments.
Best Drinks Reception Wedding Bands To Hire
With expectations high and guest numbers increasing, you’ll need music that sets the tone for the afternoon ahead. There’s lots to cover, from photo sessions, venue rearranging, and a sit-down meal or buffet (not to mention some potentially embarrassing speeches). So, when you book a band for a wedding reception it’s important to create a vibe that will occupy and entertain your guests throughout.
Hire a live wedding band for your drinks reception that fits the bill and leaves you wanting more as you head into the evening celebrations. Go vocal and keep your guests engaged with a twist of soul and R&B. Or bring in the instruments, filling the room with the energy of a brass band or a silky saxophonist. All of these (and everything in between) are available to hire in a variety of laid-back, extravagant, and quirky guises.
Best Evening Wedding Bands To Hire
Unlike the other sections of your big day, the evening celebration is all about the music. The first dance, your terribly choreographed relatives, and the karaoke (if you’re brave enough) all rest on your ability to hire a band for a wedding to remember. Whatever the genre, your chosen artist is sure to transform the event.
Get the party started with a high-intensity group, bring in electric guitars for a rock-inspired showcase, or swing the night away with a gypsy jazz ensemble. Alternatively, enjoy the versatility of a globally recognised DJ who’ll pack out the dancefloor with a set of chart-topping hits. Our evening music options offer all of the above. Gifting your guests with a final crescendo to take home and cherish, and a worthy ending to your special day.
