Steve hired Sam Dawson for a Private event (available in Hull)

“We hired Sam to play at our wedding for 4 hours while our guests had drinks and dinner. His energy and song list completely matched the relaxed vibe we were looking to create. We gave him free choice on what songs he sang and the ones he picked were perfect. A while before the wedding we asked if he would sing Coldplay ‘yellow’ for our first dance despite it not being on his set list and he didn’t hesitate. I wish, wish, wish we had a recording as it was beautiful and perfect. Thank you so much Sam, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone, we had so many great reviews for you from our guests and would happily book you again for any event. Shame we can’t do it all over again!”

FAQs about hiring Wedding Ceremony Musicians in Hull

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Do you play music during wedding ceremony?

While music isn't strictly mandatory for a wedding ceremony, it's become a deeply ingrained tradition. Its absence might feel oddly quiet and leave some key emotional moments unaccompanied. Live music in ceremonies is used mainly to guide the flow of the wedding. For example, processional music announces the bride’s arrival, recessional music celebrates the union, and interludes provide smooth transitions between readings or vows.

When do you need music in a wedding ceremony?

While the specific timing can vary depending on the length of your ceremony, however as a rule of thumb: Prelude: Around 15-20 minutes before the ceremony starts, soft, calming music begins playing as guests arrive and take their seats. Processional: Music starts right as the first member of the wedding party enters, and continues as the bride walks down the aisle. This typically lasts 2-4 minutes depending on the length of the aisle and song chosen. Readings/Interludes: Short instrumental pieces or calm ambient music can be played between readings or announcements (usually 1-2 minutes each). Vows: Some couples choose to have music playing softly in the background while exchanging vows, while others prefer silence for this intimate moment. Unity Ceremony/Ring Exchange: If you're having a special ceremony like lighting a unity candle or exchanging rings, you might choose a short, meaningful piece of music to accompany this moment (around 1 minute). Recessional: As the newly married couple exits the ceremony, the music shifts to a more upbeat and celebratory tone. The recessional music typically lasts 1-2 minutes, depending on the chosen song. Of course, whichever music you choose is at your discretion as a couple but if you’d like more advice tailored to your vision, please get in touch with one of our experts today.

What is recessional music for wedding ceremony?

The recessional music is the songs that play as you take your first steps as a newly married couple. It marks the joyful end to your ceremony and sets the tone for the drinks reception. Take a look at your blog for inspiration and guides on how to choose the right recessional song for your big day.

How much do wedding ceremony musicians cost?

The average cost of a wedding ceremony musician depends entirely on the type of musician you choose, as well as, other factors such as time of year (peak wedding season being the most expensive), experience of the musician and location of your wedding venue (local musicians almost always the least expensive due to lower travel costs). However, below is a rough guide of prices of some popular musicians for wedding ceremonies: String quartet - £840 Acoustic duos - £650 Organist - £400 Harpist - £350 Singing guitarist - £300 Violinist - £300

Should I have music at wedding ceremony?

Whether you’d like wedding ceremony music is up to you, however, nothing beats the atmosphere live music can create, and your ceremony does set the tone for the rest of your wedding. Live music is great for adding a layer of emotion and intensity to key moments such as the bride walking down the aisle, that pre-recorded music can’t. Another key thing to remember is that with live music, it reduces the chances of technical difficulties as live musicians are seasoned professionals who know how to manage sound levels effectively and maximise the acoustics of a venue. You don’t want to risk pitchy sounds or uneven noise levels during the most important moments of your life.

What music to play before wedding ceremony?

Usually, couples choose to play music before the ceremony as the guests are arriving to create an ambience and set the tone for the rest of the day. Ultimately the choice is up to you, but ideally, you want background music that creates a nice atmosphere but doesn’t overpower conversations as your guests mingle.

How to play music at outdoor wedding ceremony?

There are a lot of great live music options for an outdoor wedding ceremony. String instruments such as violins, cello, and viola are great for outdoor weddings as they have a sharp, directional sound that can cut through background noise in open spaces. Likewise, jazz bands suit outdoor ceremonies as they often feature horns and woodwinds which also project well outdoors. Other ​​outdoor wedding ceremony musicians you may want to consider are harpists, singing guitarists, acoustic duos, and steel drum bands. If you’d like a more interactive experience, consider a roaming band who wander around the venue or dancefloor and perform amongst your guests. Due to their nature of performance, roaming bands are ideal for outdoor wedding ceremonies because they don't need amplification and their sound fills any outdoor space no matter how large.
