Music & Entertainment

Wedding music and entertainment is a massive part of the celebration and also requires a sizeable chunk of your budget. You need to think about what parts of the day require music and then whether you want live music or a DJ.

Ceremony Music

Many couples choose to have live music during the ceremony, for example, a harpist. You need to think about the music you have before the service, the processional music, the music whilst you sign as well as the exit or recessional music.

What music can’t you have?

Due to legalities, religious music cannot be used during a Civil Partnership or Civil Wedding Ceremony, which means no popular religious hymns. Ensure that your music and hymns have been approved by your registrar.

Reception Music

During the reception, it is common to have a live band as well as a DJ that will get your guests dancing well into the night. We love the idea of live music during the drinks reception and following the wedding breakfast. A live band for a key moment like the first dance is unforgettable.

Hiring a DJ for the section of the evening where you want to get your guests dancing and when they can make requests is so important. We have a handpicked selection of affordable entertainment options that will be sure to involve each and every guest!

Getting Value for Money

If you are having a live musician performing at your ceremony, most musicians will only charge a little extra to play during your drinks reception too.


Entertainment is not seen as an essential, however, we have handpicked a selection of affordable options if you are set on wowing your guests at your reception.

If you are looking for something to truly impress your guests and bring everyone together at the end of this night, why not organise a firework display for the perfect send-off. If you want something more interactive, your selection includes a casino and other games options.
