Whether you are planning a church service or civil ceremony, Michael can provide the music to enhance the mood. With a vast repertoire, Michael will be able to play your choice of music for your entrance and exit and, of course, whilst you are signing the register.
In church, regular favourites include the ever popular Widor Toccata and the stirring Hornpipe from Handel’s Water music, as well, of course, as the traditional Wedding March. Whilst signing the register, some couples opt for gentle light classical music, such as Pachelbel’s Canon or The Air on a G String, whilst others prefer to hear their favourite love ballads played softly. If you are looking for an extra special touch, Michael can bring along a soprano with him to sing favourites such as Ave Maria during the signing of the registers, or perhaps a trumpeter to add a musical touch of class to the Trumpet Voluntary.
If you are having a Civil Ceremony, Michael will play the Grand Piano if one is available or, if not, is happy to bring along his Digital Piano or one of his electronic Keyboards or Organs, which can sound either like a traditional classical organ or any orchestral or band instrument you can imagine. The spectrum of music suitable here is very wide and Michael has been asked to play beautiful romantic melodies including The Wind Beneath My Wings and Love Changes Everything to give a romantic feel, whilst, for a triumphal piece of exit music, one couple chose the theme from Star Trek, The Next Generation!
Once the main service is over, Michael can play gentle jazz to welcome your guests to your reception. This ambience can be further enhanced if he enhances the solo Piano with some of the country’s finest musicians to make a duo, trio or quartet or big band, which can include a Frank Sinatra / Tony Bennett style singer to bring the great songs to life for you.
