The drinks reception sets the stage for the festivities to come. Create an atmosphere of sophistication as your guests mingle and enjoy refreshing drinks. A pianist can serenade the crowd with a repertoire ranging from classic jazz standards to contemporary hits. Imagine the timeless charm of Gershwin’s “Summertime” or the modern allure of Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love” setting the tone for a day filled with celebration.

2. The Wedding Breakfast: A Musical Feast

As you and your guests savour the delectable dishes, let the piano serenade you with a beautiful dinner soundtrack. Choose classics like Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” for a romantic ambiance or opt for contemporary instrumental renditions that resonate with your personal style. The gentle cadence of the piano enhances the intimacy of the moment, turning dinner into a sensory symphony.

3. Personalised Requests: A Musical Journey

Before your wedding day, you can discuss with your pianist what style of music you would like played. There is the option to select your favourites from your pianist’s repertoire list, and you can also choose up to five pieces of background piano music that your pianist will learn especially for you. Your pianist can weave these selections into the performance, making the evening even more personal and memorable.

4. A Grand Entrance

Use your entrance into the wedding breakfast to make a statement! Choose a piece of music that reflects your love story, or one that lifts the energy in the room, and get your guests cheering and dancing as you enter. Discuss this with your pianist in advance, and they will be ready to play you into your wedding breakfast with style. The piano’s versatility allows you to put your personal stamp on your first entrance as a married couple, leaving a lasting impression on everyone present.

Incorporating background piano music into your wedding reception is more than an auditory delight; it’s a way to infuse every moment with elegance and emotion.
