WHY SAXOPHONE MUSIC AT YOUR WEDDING?

Have you thought about music on your big day?  Even assuming you're having a DJ or band during the evening  live music during other stages of the day is the only entertainment proven to create the atmosphere you expect and deserve.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               There are other music options - but none as cool as the sax!  Tim uses top-quality backing tracks, which makes his sound uniquely ideal for all kinds of music and is the closest you'll get to the original song and can either play laid-back music or centre-stage.  Tim plays the alto, tenor and soprano saxes, each with its unique tone quality.  He also plays clarinet, perfect for any Vintage or Gatsby-themed event.  His vast and ever-developing repertoire - see the Repertoire page (tab above*) -  includes a wealth of material for you to choose from.  Some wedding musicians create a playlist for your big day at the last minute; Tim will always take care tocraft your selection into the perfect mix just for you. 

YOU CAN RELY ON TIM NOT JUST FOR AN ASSURED PERFORMANCE, BUT TIM HAS THE PERSONALITY TO CREATE A FUN OCCASION.  HE WILL ALWAYS GO THE EXTRA MILE TO ENSURE YOU HAVE THE WEDDING YOU ALWAYS DREAMED OF!  His friendliness and passion for creating a happy feel, together with his approachability and professionalism at every event has been noted many times.

 Tim is YOUR Wedding Specialist - he's played during every stage of the wedding day - and evening!

Tim charges are per 'stage' of the day, e.g. the Service/Ceremony, Drinks Reception etc.  If your Wedding is falling behind schedule, he will continue to play until the appropriate time at no extra cost.  Tim will help you select the music if requested - the choice of music depends on the atmosphere you wish to create, whether classy and sophisticated or relaxed and laid-back.

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 and it ticks all the boxes when performed on the saxophone.  What's more, it isn't too loud to prevent conversation.                                         The   Service/Ceremony – The sax sounds particularly majestic within the acoustics of an old church.  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.  Whether it's a piece of classical music for your entrance or something more recent which has a special meaning for you the choice is entirely yours.  NB - no religious music at a civil wedding!       The Drinks Interval, Photography  - 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 works best!                                                                              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.  For additional interest to the evening, Tim can also play a set with sensuous love songs and/or dance tunes to give you and your guests a break from your DJ or band.
