As a wedding singer David excels and many couples have married to the dulcet tones of his wonderful voice. David alongside his pianist Eugene Portman can provide music for the ceremony, the drinks reception, the wedding breakfast and the evenings entertainment. Eugene can also play solo classical piano music for the ceremony for something more traditional.
David Edwards and Eugene Portman can provide the music for the ceremony as a duo, a trio or a full band. Eugene can of course play solo piano. Firstly, music is usually played prior to the ceremony while the congregation are gathering in the ceremony room or church. The ceremony starts with the entrance of the bride, usually about 45 seconds long and a traditionally choice for this is the Bridal Chorus by Wagner. Music can of course be provided throughout the ceremony, but the next part of the ceremony that requires music is the signing of the register and this usually lasts between 7-12 minutes. The final part of the ceremony that requires music is the recession the traditional choice being the Wedding March by Mendelssohn.
The Drinks Reception
Music for the drinks reception is usually of a lively nature and any line-up is suitable from a solo pianist to a full jazz band. In the summer months we are often called upon to perform outside for the drinks reception. We are perfectly willing to do this, and can provide a gazebo to protect all our equipment from the elements free of charge.
It is important that the music is not over powering during this part of the days proceedings. Solo piano, piano and vocals or piano and bass are all ideal for the wedding breakfast.
The Evening Reception
The evening reception is usually where everyone lets their hair down so lively music is appropriate. Please note that David and his musicians can play lively music for this part of the day, but it won’t be like a disco. However, a lot of couples have us for the early part of the evening and then put some modern dance music through our sound system for the last hour or two.
Other services can be provided such as Digital Baby Grand Piano, use of radio microphone for speeches, disco lights etc.
