Wedding Ceremony Music

What Kind Of Wedding Ceremony Music Are You Going To Have?

Don’t you just love wedding music? That is of course because of the fact that a wedding is taking place, and so any music involved is great. While that is true, you certainly want to pick good wedding music, and then of course you have the traditional wedding song where the bride enters. That is always a favorite of course. Other than that one song, there are also other traditional wedding songs as well.

Then you have the wedding songs that you choose yourself. Who is in charge of the music? You need to pick a song for the first dance and the father daughter dance. Of course, there are different families and wedding situations, so it can vary as to what songs you pick and for what reasons. You have to decide what type of music you want for the reception and what you think others will enjoy, too.

Of course the wedding ceremony music is different from the music of the reception. You have to plan out how you want the wedding ceremony music played as well. And again, you can have more than just the one traditional guitar song played during the wedding because it is all in how you want to do things. So what is it going to be?

If you ask me, I would certainly like the wedding ceremony music to be traditional only. Then the reception should be all kinds of fun. Instead of hiring a wedding singer or just having a DJ, I would have live music. Well, a DJ would be cool, too. Then you could also have karaoke if you want. That would be really cool, but it is a good idea to make sure that you have a good setup. Hey, the point is it is going to be a beautiful ceremony and a great reception.

Best Live Wedding Music Band

How to Find the Best Live Wedding Music Band in Melbourne

When it comes to wedding music you have a few choices. Live wedding music has become a popular choice because it adds something unique to this special day. The problem most couples have is that they don’t know how to find the right band for their wedding.

Best Live Wedding Music Band

The best bands to look for are those that play music specifically for weddings. This means they have a large selection of popular songs to play. They are also able to take requests, so you can have the music you like at your wedding.

When selecting a band you need to make sure they can play the music you like. If you like slower songs than a rock band may not be a great choice. However, if you hop to rock out at your wedding the rockers would be perfect.

The band should have a wide selection of songs to choose from. You want to have the basic songs set before the big day and you need to make sure the band knows them. You don’t want to discover the band doesn’t know the words to the first dance song, on the day of the wedding.

Get recommendations from others that have had weddings that had the type of live wedding music you liked. After you have the names of a few bands you can contact them for a demo or hear them perform. You need to hear the band before you hire them.

When you find a band you like, book them as soon as possible. In Melbourne, live music performers can get booked quickly especially if you’re getting married during the busy part of the wedding season.

Live wedding music can give you the opportunity to create a unique wedding experience. Finding the right band can ensure the live music is a success.

Brighton International Wedding Venue, Acoustic Music

Brighton International Wedding Venue, Acoustic Music.

Another unforgettable wedding,  another day to remember with joy.

Brighton International Wedding Venue, Acoustic Music

I have had the privilege of sharing the special day of hundreds of married couples throughout my musical career.  In Melbourne,  I regularly  perform at corporate events, private parties,  jazz concerts and at my own creative guitar concerts. When I perform at weddings, magic occurs. Either when I play solo or in duo, the careful planning with the bride and groom of the musical to be played , how and when, create the ideal scenario for music to come alive.

At my last wedding ,at the Brighton International Wedding Venue, I was delighted to see how the bridesmaids walked in sync to my compositions towards the ceremonial area. Such beauty in movement enhances the beauty of my playing.

Music is an important part of our lives and weddings can be the foundation stone of such. I believe playing the correct music for a ceremony and or reception, enhances the beauty we deserve on one of the most special days of our lives.

The Brighton International Wedding Venue. (The International of Brighton)  have a delightful garden where the ceremony is held. The interior is also most adequate and spacious. I must also compliment the food and the service. The waiters were extremely into my ethnic playing or interpretation of 70s 80s 90 hits.

Here you may find all the the upcoming dates of my new concerts in Melbourne at the Paris Cat or at the Armadale Uniting Church.

Melbourne Weddings

Melbourne Weddings represent a joyous social occasion. I feel delighted every time my music fills the air and accompanies the bride, groom, family and friends on the start of this journey, of this special commitment we all long for. I cannot help, but to smile with joy, every time the crowd roars with applauses, once the married couple is finally presented as Mrs and Mr.

The acoustic music, our Melbourne Duo, chooses for the ceremony and reception, must be performed in a manner that accompanies the beauty and joy of the special occasion. It is our job to make all guest feel radiant and take home with them an ever lasting memory.

For all our Melbourne weddings, our  acoustic duo meets up with the bride and groom to plan what music will be played and when. We also decide on the most appropriate wedding ceremony composition, dance tunes and bridal entrance themes. It is our objective to create the desired ambience, with our Melbourne acoustic duo, to accompany the bride, groom and all the guests from the very beginning of the day until it is time to rest and go home.

During the year 2016 I will be hosting a series of Melbourne Concerts . At these concerts I show case, not the music of our Melbourne Acoustic duo but my creative artistic values through flamenco and jazz.

If you are getting married soon and like to hear what I believe joy is, please drop me a line and I will definitely send you a complimentary pass to have you with me during one of my concerts.

In my upcoming Melbourne concert I will have the pleasure of having with me 26 couples, that I have had the honour of playing for them at their Melbourne weddings. I believe what will bring us all together again is to share the same concept of what music is for to feel good about life. Come and join us.

Why You Should Visit Australian Wedding Expos If You Are Planning A Wedding

If you are planning a wedding it would be a good idea to visit Australian wedding expos. If you do, you can get good ideas, talk to vendors and have a better idea of what you want to do on your special day. They are a way to start the process or to get a lot done all in one day.

When you go to the expo you will want to do so with enough time to check everything out. You don’t want to be rushed and have to miss anything because you run out of time. You want to be able to stop by every booth if you are able to so you can see what they have to offer.

If you know your wedding date already it will be easier for you to talk with the vendors. They can see if they are free that day and if they are not you can keep looking. You don’t want to waste your time looking into vendors that can’t work on your special day.

It would be a good idea to go to the Australian wedding expos with a wedding planning binder. That way you can put everything you need into it and write down notes. You might not be able to remember everything once you get back home.

While you are at the expo you will have a chance to look at dresses, photography, DJ services, try cake, try different foods and do a few other things to help you prepare for your wedding. There are a lot of things to look at and think about for your own wedding. Once you get home you will want to go over everything, especially if your future spouse was not able to go with you.

If you can, take your mom or a good friend to help you look at everything at the expo. They can help you decide on thing and it is fun to go there with other people. If you can, also take your future spouse. They probably have a lot of say in the wedding and would want to be apart.

Look in your local paper to find out about the expos. Make plans to go to a few of them to help you with your wedding planning. They are such a great help to get you ready for your wedding.

Wedding Processional Music

Wedding Processional Music

Some things may seem easy than the really are. One of the most common example of this is the choice of the wedding processional music. It is only during the planning of the wedding that most brides come to the realization of this. The first dance song is very simple to choose because it carries with it some meaning and emotions value on   the couples side. The bride and the groom have a lot of questions to answer before you decide which music will play for hat great entrance. Some questions are, will the music have lyrics or not? Will the music be upbeat or subdued>? And finally is it classical or contemporary?

A wedding processional music is that song you will be dancing along with your wedding party during your wedding.  This happens when you will be walking down the aisle. You have two options to make. You may either choose a song for everyone or you may decide to choose on to choose a separate song for our grand music. The processional music should not be more upbeat than your recessional music. Your recessional song will happen when you are leaving the venue.

First of all, make sure that you do self-reflection. Try to see what type of music that you think will be of importance to you. Ask yourself if it is to remind you of that lovely moment or just to remind how your relationship is like.  This is your day and you do not need to rush yourself nobody should influence you to make them happy. Choose the song that is only important to you alone. Know that there is no time you will have all people like the same song. Go ahead and enjoy that favorite song and what will follow is a sweet procession.

Among the traditional choices, the here comes the bride ids the most popularity you go for the classical pieces. It is usually played with the use of an organ. A more modern and upgraded form that is good for you to try is the use of a classical piano. This will preserve the element of tradition while at the same time making sure that the usual drama associated with this type of song.

HOW TO CHOOSE WEDDING ENTRANCE MUSIC

 

HOW TO CHOOSE WEDDING ENTRANCE MUSIC

 

wedding entrance music

When choosing your wedding songs, you should keep select them in a way they can relate to your love story or life. You should sit down with your spouse and think about the aspects of your relationships that makes it different and unique from the others. Do not choose music to please everyone, choose the music that you and your spouse can relate and you enjoy listening to them. Here are some tips that will help you select the appropriate music for your wedding entrance.
You and your spouse should settle on the kind of wedding ceremony you both want. If you settle for a traditional wedding, you should go for classic songs like “Canon in D.” These instrumental classics have been played for a very long time during wedding ceremonies. It is a current trend for most people to select contemporary music for their occasion. This is the kind of music that will help you set the mood for your wedding.

Everyone will have their ideas and music preferences for wedding entrance music. You should sit down together and come up with a list of music that matter to you. This is the list that will help you choose the kind of music that will be play at your wedding. At some point, you will have to compromise and come to an agreement where both the music you like is included. You will have to come up with a plan that will have all the songs you like and don’t like in a way that will not upset anyone of you. Avoid the songs that anyone of you can relate to in a negative way.

Take great note because there are standards of the kind of music you can play at the ceremony and at the reception. You have the freedom to play around with this – unless your traditions or faith is very strict. You should appreciate that parts of your ceremony or reception will need different kind of music.

Here are some standards you should be aware of:
Prelude music – this is the music that will be playing before the ceremony begins. This is very important because your guests have different emotions and music tastes. You should select music that will soothe them and prepare them for your wedding ceremony.
Processional music – these are the songs played when guests are entering the ceremony place.
Bridal entrance music – this is the music that will be playing during the last moments of the bride to be an unmarried woman. This is a moment of special glory and the kind of music selected should be perfect for the occasion.
You should be very careful when you are choosing the music for your first dance. Most faiths and traditions have a pre-determined song that plays at this session. However, you have the freedom to choose the kind of music you will want to play at your first dance with your spouse. You should think through with your spouse and select a song that can relate to both of you. Settle for that song that just feels right when you listen to it.
