"The Big Moment" aka the Processional: It's all a matter of timing

The wedding processional is one part of the wedding ceremony that needs careful consideration. You may have found the perfect piece of music to make an entrance to but have you thought about the length of the aisle and how fast you'll walk?

When we arrive at your wedding venue one of our first tasks,while we set up, is to work out how long we might need to play the processional music as the wedding party makes their entrance. Using our vast experience of playing for wedding ceremonies, we judge how much music we're going to need and end the piece at an appropriate time so your arrival appears effortless.

NUMBER IN WEDDING PARTY + LENGTH OF AISLE +SPEED OF WALK = LENGTH OF PIECE OF MUSIC

The music must be entirely your choice, and, if we may be so bold, we'd suggest that one piece of music is sufficient to allow you and anyone else in your wedding party enough time to make a grand entrance. There is an increasing trend to have two, even three, songs for the processional (one for the Bridesmaids and one for Bride) but in our humble opinion we find that having two pieces of music gives a disjointed feel to the proceedings.

One of the most magical moments in the wedding ceremony is the first glimpse of the the Bride. So our message to the bride is this: all those people have come to see you. Please take your time. Take a deep breath (and keep breathing). Smile. Walk slowly. There's no hurry.
