Music plays a very important role in a wedding ceremony so you should select the ceremonial songs for your special occasion that are right for you. Music sets the mood and adds to the whole romance of the ceremony.
You may well have favourite songs in mind but you need to plan when they should be played and how it works in with the ceremony as a whole. There are prelude songs played while guests wait for the ceremony to start, wedding party processional songs, bride's processional songs, interlude and recessional songs (signing the register), and upbeat happy songs to be played after the wedding party has left and the guests get ready to leave.
If you want to make it extra special, then why not choose a live music band or group, though you must check with the venue first to understand any possible restrictions.
Here’s some great musicians based in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire from places like Reading, Oxford, Milton Keynes, Aylesbury, Banbury and Buckingham, whom you might want to get in touch with...
Don't forget to mention Your Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wedding magazine when contacting a musician.

The Oxford String Quartet offers wedding package
The Oxford String Quartet was formed in 2005 and has been performing at venues throughout the UK ever since. The four musicians have played for a variety of occasions, and at a wide range of venues, ranging from intimate wedding receptions to corporate events. The quartet has a lively and engaging performance style, and an extensive repertoire, featuring classical works, jazz standards, tangos, show tunes and contemporary songs. While all are classically-trained players, they are open to forays into a diversity of genres, including jazz, pop, tangos, musicals and much more. The Oxford String Quartet are happy to advise on music for each function and offers an arrangement service for any piece that couples wish to hear which is not yet available for the string quartet. They also offer a wedding package.
