IS WEDDING SINGER RIGHT FOR MY EVENT?
Music is a fundamental part of any wedding and can be provided by a DJ, band or soloist. So which one is right for your event? This will depend on the size of your venue, your budget and the type of atmosphere you want to create on your wonderful day. Singers for weddings perform the same function as a DJ or a live band, depending on their accompaniment, and require little space to perform.
These are some of the ways in which a wedding vocalist can set the scene and create the right mood at your wedding.
For classic beauty and elegance, nothing quite compares to having a singer perform a beautiful aria as the bride makes her first entrance and walks down the aisle. Opera singers are a popular choice for the main ceremony, as well as singers accompanied by acoustic guitar or piano playing a romantic, contemporary classic. Whatever your favourite, meaningful song, our talented vocalists can deliver it in a way that will bring timeless sophistication to your ceremony.
THE DRINKS RECEPTION & WEDDING BREAKFAST
Having a singer to provide a musical backdrop as the guests arrive for the drinks reception can really set the tone and create a joyful atmosphere that can be carried all the way through the main meal. Singers can prove to be a good way to stretch your budget in this respect, since their repertoire is often flexible enough to cater for every stage of your wedding, from the ceremony to the evening reception.
Having great music at the evening reception is unquestionably the key to having a fun and joyful day. Wedding singers can be a great way to get your guests up on their feet after the meal and they can sing everything from your show-stopping first dance, to classics that will bring the parents and grandparents to the dance floor. If your wedding has a theme, a wedding vocalist can really bring this out in the evening, whether it’s rock and roll or vintage music.
WHAT SORT OF WEDDING SINGER DO I NEED?
Firstly, consider when you would like your singer to perform. You may want to book an Opera singer for your ceremony, and a Motown or Jazz singer for your evening reception. You may also decide to book a singer for the whole day, in which case someone with a very flexible tone and repertoire would be a great choice.
If you’re setting your wedding around a particular theme you may also want to book one of our specialist singers, who have just the right look for a vintage or rock & roll wedding.
Whatever style or act type you need we have a wealth of wonderfully gifted singers in our directory, covering everything from Jazz and Swing, to Big Band and Ratpack, as well as all eras from the 1920s to contemporary chart songs.
