TIM CLARKE - THE SAX MAN is an Award-winning (2019, 2017) highly-recommended wedding saxophone player based on the border of Yorkshire and Lancashire. 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. An accomplished, widely-experienced musician, Tim is an in-demand wedding saxophonist who will create a memory to treasure but is also a useful guy to have on board.
'Amazing sax player, but an even better guy!' (Kirsty & Dan Alexander)
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. EVERYONE LOVES THE SAX AND TIM OFFERS YOU AN UNBEATABLE SERVICE ON THIS, THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE!
'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 GENTLE, RELAXING AMBIENCE OR MUSICAL EXCITEMENT AS REQUIRED THROUGHOUT YOUR WEDDING-DAY AS WELL AS BEING IDEAL FOR ALL GENRES. It's the closest you get to the original: a pianist, harpist or strings performing an up-tempo dance tune doesn't sound right, so you're limited to ballads and gentle classics. There are no such restrictions with the saxophone. Tim plays alto, tenor & soprano saxes, each with its own sound, and clarinet - perfect for a Vintage or Gatsby event.
'...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. 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 later for an impromptu sing-along 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.
Even if you're unsure, contact Tim with your date, venue & times. Call 07917 690931, email email@example.com or complete the form on the Weddings page.
