TIM CLARKE - THE SAX MAN

wedding saxophonist

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 ANY OF YOUR CEREMONY OR CHURCH WEDDING, DRINKS RECEPTION, WEDDING BREAKFAST, CANAPES/DRINKS, EVENING INTERVAL 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 he can 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 wedding 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.  Tim doesn't only perform - his professionalism and friendliness have been noted on many occasions. 

'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 string quartet performing an up-tempo tune - it doesn't work.  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)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           TIM IS PROUD OF HIS AMAZING REVIEWS!  Do take a moment to read other brides' and bridegrooms' experiences on the Wedding Reviews page (tab above*).

'Tim ... added a beautiful & romantic atmosphere to our big day and then followed with some more upbeat songs to get everyone in the party mood ' (Wedding, Sarah & Jacob Sunderland)

TIM'S REPERTOIRE IS HUGE!  Take a look at the Repertoire page (tab above*) - better still, request a copy by email.  You'll be surprised at the choice - including plenty of chart sounds, music from the movies (lots of Disney!) - even classics!  

'Great saxophone player, reasonable price and lovely man, great addition to our wedding, would definetly recommend Tim to anyone'. (Wedding, Bethany & Rob Julier)

TIM'S WEDDING PRICES ARE VERY COMPETITIVE - BUT HE CAN ALSO OFFER YOU A BESPOKE PACKAGE.                                     You don't have to risk a wedding disaster just to save a few £££ if you do receive a cheaper quote.                                 Benjamin Franklin: 'The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweet taste of low price is forgotten.'  

'Amazing sax player, but an even better guy!' (Kirsty & Dan Alexander) 

TIM ALSO PROVIDES MUSIC FOR BIRTHDAY, CHRISTENING AND ANNIVERSARY PARTIES AS WELL AS DINNER EVENTS, BLACK-TIE AND CORPORATE FUNCTIONS, CHRISTMAS EVENTS etc. He has played at 3 garden parties for a prominent national figure, and has repeat dinner bookings at Catterick Garrison.                                                                                                      [Above photo: Paula Solloway Photography.  Below photo: Shy B Photography - Tim's wedding 2018] 

Tim Clarke - The Sax Man on his wedding day, with his bride

10/10 ON THE 4 R's:                                                    - huge REPERTOIRE        - fabulous REVIEWS      - affordable RATES           - help & REASSURANCE

Don't take chances with your big day: Tim is a wedding saxophonist 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.
