The ceremony is without a doubt the most personal part of your wedding day, so it is important to choose music that means something to you and select musicians that can play it.
The acoustics in the East Barn at Upwaltham lend themselves perfectly to a romantic, classical harpist, string duet, or acoustic guitar or for something more contemporary a saxophonist also works really well.
The success of the Military Wives Choir and the US show Glee have made choirs a very popular choice. A gospel choir adds a distinctive element to any ceremony and can add a real sense of theatre to your day.
The Drinks Reception
Weather permitting, many couples hold their drinks reception in the courtyard at Upwaltham Barns. With a ready-made stage area and electrical supply this is also a perfect place for musicians to entertain your guests.
For a relaxed feel, some light contemporary acoustic music is ideal, but if you are looking for something more entertaining and interactive, great choices include a roaming band, steel pannist or a brass band. For Jazz fans, a jazz singer or performing jazz trio is always a winner to get everyone’s toes tapping.
The Wedding Breakfast
For your wedding breakfast the food should always take centre stage so simple background music is perfect for this part of the day. This could be from a playlist or played live by an acoustic artist.
If you did want something fun however, you may consider having Singing Waiters. Your guests will be amazed and delighted when their ‘waiter’ suddenly breaks into song!
The Evening Reception
The South Barn at Upwaltham Barns is a brilliant space for turning your reception into a party with live music. When hiring a band for your evening reception, there is lots to consider and getting advice from an agency can be worth its weight in gold. Nathan from Toast Functions and Lucy from Lemon Entertainment both know the South Barn well and can help you choose the right band for your celebration.
For the best party atmosphere, book a band that plays a style of music you enjoy, and just let them do what they do best! They will have been rehearsing and gigging for years so will know the songs you and your guests will love! By booking a first-class party band, you are guaranteed to have the dance floor full all night.
