Listed below are our most popular wedding piano music packages which are a guide only. We would be most happy to tailor a bespoke package to suit your requirements should they differ from our selection below.
How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Pianist For A Wedding?
Wedding pianist rates vary depending on many factors including event location, season of the year, day of the week, afternoon or evening performances and whether or not there is a piano on site. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, New Year’s Eve, Easter, Christmas and bank holidays may incurr an additional fee, whilst a mid-week or winter wedding may be at a discounted rate. If the event is in central London, for example, is there free parking available? Do we need to pay the congestion charge? As a guide, our prices start from £175 with our most popular package being around £295 for events in and around London and the South East.
Our Most Popular Wedding Music Options
A civil wedding ceremony is very short (approximately 30 minutes) so it makes sense to have the musicians who perform for the ceremony also continue playing for the drinks reception or wedding breakfast. We charge per event and for the total time we are on site (not just the performance duration) and limit our playing time to 2.5 hours with two short breaks.
A) Civil Wedding Ceremony
We would begin playing in the ceremonial room as your guests arrive at the venue and are being seated and await the entrance of the bride (approx. half hour before the wedding ceremony). Then continuing to play for:
- Entrance of the Bride (Processional)
- Signing of the register
- As the bride & groom/partner exit (Recessional)
B) Drinks Reception
We would play immediately following your wedding ceremony, as your guests mingle and have a drink to set a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The music would end as your guests enter the dining room or when you begin a formal line-up to greet your guests.
C) Wedding Breakfast (Meal)
We will play as your guests enter the dining room, following an official line-up and as they are being seated for their meal. We will continue to play a wide variety of well known music throughout the meal up until about 10 minutes before the speeches begin or the tea/coffee is being served.
D) Combined – Civil Wedding Ceremony & Drinks Reception
By far the most popular package, this is a combination of A) and B) above.
E) Combined – Drinks Reception & Wedding Breakfast (meal)
A combination of B) and C) above
F) Combined – Civil Ceremony, Drinks Reception & Wedding Breakfast (meal)
The ultimate package with your entire afternoon of music catered for. A combination of A), B) and C) above.
