Wedding Ceremony Music

Our selection of wedding soloists features some of the very best singers and instrumentalists in Hampshire, with varying sounds and styles that offer something to suit every wedding ceremony. We’ve got singer/guitarists, pianists, classical guitarists and more – all of them carrying experience performing for ceremonies in some of the most popular wedding venues in Hampshire.

Will my Hampshire wedding soloist learn a special request to play us down the aisle?

Absolutely. All our Hampshire wedding ceremony acts offer one special request as standard with their booking, meaning they can learn that perfect song to play you down the aisle.

Will my wedding ceremony act play during the signing of the register/as guests arrive?

Yes! We recommend about 15-30 minutes music as your guests arrive, and 2-4 songs to be played during the signing of the register.

Can my wedding soloist also play during the drinks reception?

Absolutely! They will just need a little time to move any equipment over to a new location, but otherwise all of our wedding ceremony acts can double up as drinks reception entertainment.

Drinks Reception Ideas

Hampshire wedding venues offer great opportunities for live music during your drinks reception. While your guests relax with a drink, a little live music can make for the perfect drinks reception entertainment. We’ve got some of Hampshire's best drinks reception entertainment on our exclusive roster. You can choose from roaming acoustic bands to get the party started, hip hop duos that bring a brand new take to the ‘live lounge’ sound, and even headliner acts that can perform a stripped-back set as part of their booking.

How long will my drinks reception entertainment play for?

For most of our drinks reception acts, a standard booking is 90 minutes of music split into sets as required. We typically find it is best to do this as 2x45 minute sets, but this can be altered depending on your plans.

What is a roaming band?

A roaming band is a totally acoustic act with no additional amplification or audio equipment. They also don’t strictly stick to a stage or fixed position. Instead, they will mingle in amongst your guests, playing songs to different groups at a time. They’re high-energy acts that are absolutely perfect for really getting the party started – you’ll often find one of our roaming acts leading large groups of guests in song or getting a conga line going! We represent some of the best and most popular roaming bands in Hampshire, too.

Do you have headline acts that will also play at my drinks reception?

Sure! Many of our headline acts offer afternoon drinks reception sets for an additional fee. You’ll find this listed under ‘optional extras’ in the band’s profile – many of our acts also have standalone video promo for their afternoon add-ons. You’ll find these on their page too.

Headline Acts for the Party

When the evening reception rolls round, you want an incredible Hampshire wedding band that can get each and every one of your guests on their feet. You’ll find some of the best known and most popular Hampshire wedding bands for hire on our handpicked roster, with options to fit everyone’s idea of the perfect evening wedding entertainment. Maybe that’s a festival-style wedding band for your pub wedding, a soul showband to own the stage at your glitzy hotel wedding, or something totally unique like a pop punk wedding band for your stylish wedding party. We also represent some of the most in-demand professional wedding DJs in Hampshire – perfect for playing the afterparty or as a standalone booking. The world’s your oyster!

Will my headline act learn our first dance?

Yes! All our Hampshire wedding bands offer to learn one special song request as standard with every booking. This can be your first dance, or just a song you’d love to hear that’s not on the band’s repertoire.

How long will the band play for and how long will they be on site?

Our standard booking package offers two hours of live music, split into sets to suit you and your plans – typically either 2x60 minutes or 3x40 minutes. As standard, your Hampshire wedding band will be onsite for seven hours, from 5pm to midnight. However, you can request early load-ins or late finishes for an additional fee.

How long does the band need to sound check?

All our wedding bands in Hampshire are different depending on the size and the complexity of the production. As a guide, a standard 4-6 piece band will need 90 minutes to set up and sound check. They can do this in one go, or they can access the room for multiple short periods of time – but they will need the full 90 minutes to fully set up and soundcheck.

Our professional wedding bands in Hampshire travel right across the county, with regular bookings in areas like Portsmouth, Southampton, Fareham, Petersfield, Winchester, Romsey, Alton, Wickham, Basingstoke, Beaulieu, Brockenhurst, Ringwood, Chawton, Whitchurch and Yateley.
