repertoire

TIM BELIEVES IN OFFERING THE WIDEST POSSIBLE REPERTOIRE OF WEDDING MUSIC INCLUDING FAVOURITE LOVE SONGS.  MUSIC IS PERSONAL TO EACH OF US AND TIM IS ALWAYS DELIGHTED TO PERFORM A PIECE YOU REQUESTED.    

You can have music to walk down the aisle, for your first dance or the father/bride and bridegroom's mother/son dances as well as complete stages of the day such as your ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast etc.  Feel free to ask Tim  - he's always pleased to advise you based on his considerable experience.

The repertoire is divided by genre for easy reading:  Music from the Movies & TV; Pop & Rock; Rock & Roll; Soul & Motown; Rat Pack, Swing, Jazz & Blues; Club, Dance & Party Hits; Gatsby, UK Vintage & Wartime; Irish & Scottish; Beautiful Melodies; Wedding Music with Church Organ; International; Miscellaneous (which includes Strict Tempo dance tunes); Christmas.  Within each music list category you'll find love songs as well as dance tunes, party tunes - even novelty songs.  

Some songs from the current repertoire are shown below - but why not request the complete version by email?  There's no obligation to book even if you do obtain Tim's music list, but it will help in the decision process.  If your special day is some years or months away, Tim will periodically email you updates.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Here are some suggestions for wedding music.  There are no hard and fast rules, except that you are not allowed any religious music at a civil ceremony.

Music to walk down the aisle (the Processional):                                                                                                                                   At Last (Etta James); Canon in D (Pachelbel); From This Moment On (Shania Twain); Wonderful World (Louis Armstrong)

Music for the Signing of the register:                                                                                                                                                     Just The Two of Us (Bill Withers); Love Is All Around (Wet, Wet, Wet); Groovy Kind of Love (Phil Collins); Wind Beneath My Wings (Bette Midler)

Wedding songs for your exit as husband and wife (the Recessional):                                                                                         Don't Stop Believin' (Journey); Higher & Higher (Jackie Wilson); Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now (Starship); Signed, Sealed, Delivered (Stevie Wonder)

For a church service Tim offers a dedicated music list of traditional wedding marches and other popular classical melodies backed by a church organ.  The saxophone sounds spectacular in a historic church building but just imagine the magnificent sound of sax and organ playing music together for the bride to walk down the aisle!

Tim and his wife Lorraine had music played on CD at their wedding ceremony in 2018.  The bride entered to We Have All The Time in the World (Louis Armstrong). During the signing of the register 2 pieces were played, What A Difference A Day Makes (Dinah Washington) and Celebration (Kool & The Gang).  The Recessional was Higher & Higher (Jackie Wilson).  

Tim has always exceeded the expectations of previous wedding couples and other clients; let him do the same for you!
