Beautiful Wedding Ceremony Music at Cefn Tilla Court

Nestled amid the picturesque landscape of South Wales, against a backdrop of green rolling hills, lies a hidden gem of a wedding venue. Cefn Tilla Court is a country house situated in Monmouthsire, South Wales. It’s a place where love stories are woven into the very fabric of its ancient walls, and your dream summer wedding can come to life in its fairytale gardens.

A June Wedding at Cefn Tilla Court

Emma and Iwan got in touch with us a few months before their wedding. They were looking for a wedding pianist in South Wales who could provide live piano music for their wedding ceremony at Cefn Tilla Court. We love performing at Cefn Tilla Court and were delighted to be able to help! Our wonderful pianist Joseph was available for their wedding date, and so they chose to book our Silver Package. This package provides live piano music as guests are seated for the ceremony, as well as music for the bridal entrance, signing of the register and the first walk as a married couple at the end of the ceremony.

Wedding Ceremony Music Choices at Cefn Tilla Court

Emma chose ‘Your Song’ by Elton John for her bridal entrance music. Joseph played this as her four bridesmaids walked down the aisle, followed by Emma. As Elton John is such a fabulous pianist, his music works brilliantly for solo piano. Once the bridal party were ready to make their entrance, the registrar asked the guests to stand and Joseph began to play. The atmosphere instantly shifted as the guests eagerly anticipated the entrance of the bride. It was a real goosebumps moment!

For the couple’s first walk as husband and wife at the end of the ceremony, they chose Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’. Ed Sheeran is another artist whose music, despite being guitar based, translates really well into solo piano music. The driving beat gave the ceremony exit a sense of energy and celebration, and the couple walked up the aisle to the cheers and applause of their family and friends.

Outdoor Wedding Music at Cefn Tilla Court

Whilst there was a back up plan for an indoor ceremony if the weather did not play ball, Emma and Iwan were hoping to have an outdoor wedding ceremony. Cefn Tilla Court has a beautiful Lily Pond Terrace, with an enchanting lily pond, fairytale bridge and rustic pergola. A dry day meant that the couple were able to have the outdoor wedding ceremony of their dreams. Joseph set up his digital piano alongside the lily pond, along with an amplifier to ensure a rich, full sound as he played the couple’s chosen music.

‘I wanted to say thank you so much for organising for Joseph to play at our wedding! He was fantastic! It gave the ceremony that special touch, from when our guests arrived to walking down the aisle and afterwards, we couldn’t have picked anyone better!’
