The Ceremony

Music at a wedding ceremony can be something easily not given enough attention, however just as the flowers, dress, and location are crucial to setting the tone, music is a crucial way to convey your feelings, personalities, wedding theme, and to help your guests relax.

GES can provide the following services to ensure your ceremony is everything you dreamed of.

  • Assist you in selecting appropriate music for your ceremony
  • Provide you with a Portable Rechargeable Public address System. This a battery operated speaker/CD player that comes with a wireless microphone which will allow your celebrant voice to be amplified as well as playing music throughout your ceremony.
  • Make a CD for you with all of the songs that you have chosen for your ceremony so it is easy to navigate through your songs throughout the ceremony
  • Provide a professional DJ to be present at your ceremony to cue all of your songs in at the right times
  • Change the tempo or duration of any of your special songs to suit your requirements.

The general rule is that music is not played while the celebrant and wedding party are speaking. Having said that, the following sections are great places to have music.

The Prelude (The time before the start of the ceremony)

Allow your guests to arrive to an atmosphere filled with music that sets the scene for the type of feel that you want on the day. This is usaully around 15-20 minutes before the bride arrives.

The Bridal March (Walking down the aisle)

The bridal march (also known as the procession), is the most important piece of wedding music you need to choose. We can assist you in choosing suitable, walk-able pieces.

Singing the Register 

Sometimes it can appear that the wedding ceremony has come to a bit of a lull while the register is being signed. Music played during this time fills the gap and provides a seamless continuity between the sections of the ceremony.

The Recessional (Your exit)

This is the piece of music to be played as you walk back down the aisle and make your exit. 

If we can assist you in any way with advice for your ceremony music please don't hesitate to contact us.
