TIM CLARKE - THE SAX MAN
ARE YOU ENGAGED, A BRIDE-TO-BE LOOKING FOR PREMIUM-QUALITY WEDDING MUSIC (WITHOUT THE PRICE-TAG) OR OTHER WEDDING ENTERTAINMENT ?
OR ARE YOU ALREADY LOOKING FOR A WEDDING SAXOPHONIST TO PLAY DURING YOUR CEREMONY OR CHURCH WEDDING, DRINKS RECEPTION, WEDDING BREAKFAST, CANAPES/DRINKS, EVENING INTERVAL AND/OR EVENING RECEPTION?
WEDDING MUSIC IS OFTEN NEGLECTED DESPITE BEING ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF THE OCCASION AS IT DRIVES THE WEDDING ALONG. IT ALSO AFFECTS THE ATMOSPHERE YOU WISH TO CREATE.
TIM CLARKE - THE SAX MAN is an Award-winning, highly-recommended wedding saxophone player. Being recently married himself, he doesn't just 'talk the talk' on weddings - he knows all about wedding-planning first hand, and tailors his performance to suit your requirements. Tim is an in-demand wedding saxophonist but also a useful guy to have on board. It's vital that you're 100% confident that your wedding suppliers provide a first-class service: Tim will always work very closely with you ahead of your wedding to discuss your wedding music, as he did with his own suppliers. Thanks to his attention to detail and willingness to 'go the extra mile', Tim is close friends with most of his previous brides and grooms.
'Honestly trust me he made our wedding day playing the saxophone 🎷 everyone loved it,and him playing it. 💯% recommendation for the sax man Tim.' (Wedding, Jessica & Paul Pritchard)
NONE OF THE OTHER MUSIC OPTIONS IS AS ROMANTIC AS THE SAX, WHICH CREATES A WARM AND RELAXING AMBIENCE THROUGHOUT YOUR WEDDING-DAY AS WELL AS BEING IDEALLY SUITED TO ALL MUSIC GENRES. It's the closest you get to the original: imagine a pianist, harpist or strings performing an up-tempo dance tune - it just wouldn't sound right, so you're limited to ballads and gentle classical melodies with these alternatives. Tim plays alto, tenor & soprano saxes, each with its own sound, and clarinet - perfect for a Vintage or Gatsby event.
TIM OFFERS YOU AN AMAZING CHOICE OF WEDDING MUSIC BUT CAN PLAY WITH A DJ AT YOUR EVENING RECEPTION. Everyone loves the sax and appreciates live music, but most will only have a DJ later. What better way of combining the two?
'...it was greatly appreciated by all the guests. I only wish we'd booked you for even longer' (Wedding, Eliot & Georgina Murray)

what tim could do at your wedding
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.
