|If music be the food of love...|
Everyone loves the sound of the Spanish guitar, and it can provide the perfect accompaniment to your wedding. Spanish Guitar player Jon Boyes offers some suggestions on how to incorporate live music into that special day.
A live musician can help set the tone for whole day, from the moment your guests start arriving. The Bride's entrance is of course the highlight everyone is waiting for and as she walks gracefully into the room, so should the music accompanying her be graceful. There are some wonderful classical guitar pieces that are just perfect for this.
During the signing of the register there is another opportunity for some carefully chosen music to maintain the atmosphere, whilst the couple's exit following the ceremony should, I feel, be accompanied by music that is more upbeat and celebratory.
Sometimes it seems that the photographer will go on forever and even with a healthy supply of champagne, guests can become restless. Many of my clients choose to have music at this point, especially if they are planning lots of photos or if there is a gap before the wedding breakfast. The romantic sound of the Spanish Guitar is of course ideal for creating the right ambience during the meal itself.
Finally, not everyone wants a disco and I am often booked to provide music for the evening whilst people relax and chat. This is especially the case with smaller, more intimate occasions.
How you incorporate music into your wedding is up to you. Whatever you decide, make sure you are booking a professional who knows what they are doing and remember - it is your day and you should be taking centre stage, not the musician.
