Don't take chances with your big day: Tim is your Specialist Wedding Entertainer with a wealth of experience & personality.
ABOVE: Tim can play your first dance and join you unamplified on the dance-floor (for added intimacy). Here, the backing track was controlled by the DJ.
Tim normally charges per 'stage' of the day, e.g. the drinks reception, wedding breakfast etc. but can also give you a time-based price.
The Drinks Reception - Unless you've already married in church, this is where your day begins. Nothing beats the reactions of all members of the wedding party when they see a musician performing some of your favourite songs on the saxophone. What's more, it isn't too loud to prevent conversation. The Service/Ceremony – You'll need music as your guests arrive, for your bridal entrance (the processional), for the signing of the register, for your exit as a married couple (the recessional) and as your guests filter out. As to the music itself, the choice is entirely yours. NB - no religious music at a civil wedding! The Photography Drinks Interval - Your guests will not be involved all the time you are with your photographer so why not keep the happiness flowing with more background music? If weather permits, Tim can easily join your guests outdoors. The Wedding Breakfast – Tim knows how to create an amazing atmosphere as you dine, and a broad selection of musical styles together with lively favourites for an impromptu sing-along towards the end works wonders! The Evening Interval – Let Tim build up the atmosphere towards your evening event with his dance & party sounds. The Evening Reception – There is nothing more romantic than live music for your first dance as man and wife, or for you and your father, or for your new husband with his mother. Additionally Tim can play club & Ibiza tracks freestyle along with a DJ or play some of his own music to give you and your guests a break from your DJ or band.
Tim learnt the clarinet then the sax as a child. He's performed, arranged and even composed music for 40+ years: as well as being a solo musician he currently performs with a soul/motown band, a wind band, an 'oompah' band and plays military flute in a corps of drums. He is Music Director of a woodwind group in Ilkley.
Equipment: Tim uses a 2-speaker static PA system and/or a portable battery/mains PA, and will select the most appropriate system based upon the size of the venue and on the sound-level you require.
