Wedding Ceremony and Drinks Reception Music

We've got a question for you. Have you thought about live music for your wedding ceremony? How about your drinks reception? Maybe you're really keen to have a little live music on your big day, but you don't have the budget for a live band? Or maybe you've got your professional party band for the evening all covered, and you're searching for the perfect sound to set the scene while your guests mingle with a glass of bubbles post-ceremony?

Well an intimate performance from a fabulous solo act or duo can really cultivate a romantic atmosphere that's impossible to top with a Spotify playlist. Plus, they can be an incredibly cost-effective way to bring some live music to your big day!

All of our acts offer up to two hours of beautiful music, split into sets as you require. Many couples love to have our performers play their favourite song for them as they walk down the aisle, followed by some more music whilst you sign the registry. Then they can move to the drinks reception for more tunes to entertain your guests before dinner. It really does prove a fabulous addition to a wedding day.

Here we've listed five of our very best soloists and duos, all of whom are busy thrilling guests at weddings across the country this summer...

Soul Sessions

Soul Sessions are a gorgeously slick, refined piano and vocal duo performing some of the very best classic soul and Motown, alongside plenty of contemporary pop hits. Soul Sessions’ vibrant live show is the perfect tonic to add to your afternoon drinks reception - bringing a deft touch of energy and class to events of all shapes and sizes.

Ash - Solo Sax

Wedding Ceremony and Drinks Reception Music

Ash is a unique musician and performer: He is among the country's foremost saxophonists, and one of the most refreshing solutions for wedding music in London. The effortlessly cool sound of a Sax is a sure fire way to create that charming, sophisticated vibe you're searching for.


With Lennon, Its the voice that grabs you first. Soulful, subtle and utterly beguiling. Lennon is a truly mercurial talent, performing incredible acoustic versions of a host of beautiful songs that'll add a wonderful atmosphere to your wedding ceremony or drinks reception.
