Book a String Quartet for a magical performance during your ceremony
We can’t think of a better way to entertain your guests during your wedding ceremony than a String Quartet. A String Quartet usually consists of two violins, a viola and a cello player who combine their instruments to create beautiful background music. A String Quartet can play both classical pieces, such as the Bridal Chorus from Wagner, or instrumental versions of modern hits by artists such as Adele. They don’t take up a massive amount of space and they add a certain element of charm for those quieter moments in your wedding ceremony such as when your guests are being seated, as you walk down aisle, during the signing of the marriage register and your recessional once you are happily married! You can also ask your chosen ensemble if they will continue to play during your wedding drinks reception too for an additional cost. Want to find a String Quartet for your big day?

Get your guests up onto the dancefloor with a Wedding DJ
Another alternative for musical entertainment for during your wedding evening reception is to book a Wedding DJ. A wedding DJ is usually a more affordable choice than a wedding band, and will give you just as much fun! Playing music from the 1960’s onwards and even taking requests from your wedding guests, a wedding DJ has a much bigger selection of music to choose from as they simply play digital tracks from their laptop. It may look easy, but a wedding DJ is very talented at getting guests up onto the dancefloor and making announcements / bantering with guests.

Our final suggestion for popular wedding entertainment which is a little different is to book a Close-Up Magician. A Close-Up Magician offers fantastic, dynamic entertainment and is suitable for many different parts of your wedding from your drinks reception and wedding breakfast to the evening reception! You can choose to book a Close-Up Magician for some or all of those parts of your wedding and they will entertain your guests by performing illusions and sleight-of-hand tricks involving the use of small objects, such as coins or bank notes.
