Your wedding day will no doubt be an unforgettable occasion, but the day could be made even more special by booking live musicians.

Just imagine, a romantic ceremony on a beach abroad and a band playing in the background, providing the soundtrack to your big day.

International money transfer could be splashed out on a harpist or string quartet to give a serene, angelic theme, while a gospel choir or solo singer can add to the day.

“Reception drinks are often a time when guests are able to chat and catch up with long-lost friends. However, this can [last] quite some time as the bridal couple are having photos taken. Background music works well during this time – often brides will book the same musicians for the ceremony and reception,” said Susan Heaton Wright, director of Vivalivemusic.co.uk.

Furthermore, hiring a band instead of a DJ for the evening party is one way of guaranteeing authentic music, with the added excitement of it being performed by a live band.
