Wedding Music Packages
16 Strings String Quartet begins playing before the ceremony creating a beautiful atmosphere for your guests as they arrive. Choose gentle classical for graceful elegance or jazz or pop for celebration and excitement – it’s up to you. On cue from the celebrant we’ll have a small dramatic pause, before beginning your chosen music for your big entrance! With our long experience we can time the music perfectly to the bride’s arrival, and if necessary seamlessly fade it out ready for the wedding ceremony to begin. We can also play while you’re signing the register. Then of course, there’s your special recessional music as you walk back down the aisle together! Time permitting we can also continue playing for a little while longer after while your guests congratulate you.
