Wedding Music, Bands & DJs

A wedding isn’t a wedding without good music! There are so many options when it comes to wedding music. You can hire a string quartet for your ceremony, and a wedding DJ or band (or both!) for your evening reception. Consider an acoustic guitarist for your background music at your wedding breakfast or someone to play the harp as your guests arrive – the possibilities are endless!

Hiring a DJ for Your Wedding

A wedding DJ is a great choice if you want a lively wedding reception – your wedding DJ will know all the best songs to play to get all your guests on the dance floor.


A top tip for hiring a wedding DJ – don’t worry about giving your DJ a list of songs to play at your wedding, but instead give them a list of what not to play! It’ll allow them more freedom to create a great party playlist for you, but will ensure they don’t play any songs you hate. It’ll save you time too!

Hiring a Wedding Band

A wedding band is a great option if you don’t want a DJ at your wedding. Bands create a different vibe at a wedding reception, making them a brilliant choice if you want a live music atmosphere. Chat to your band about what’s on their playlist – they will quite likely learn new songs for you at your request, but be aware it might come with an additional cost.
It’s also worth checking with your band what they’ll do between their sets – they will need to take a break! You can find out if they’ll do a DJ set or put a playlist on to keep people on the dance floor.
Make sure you check with your venue about if they have any sound limits and discuss this with your band or DJ or whatever other wedding musicians you may hire so they are aware of it!

Other Wedding Entertainment You Can Hire

The possibilities are honestly endless when it comes to hiring entertainment for your wedding. You could walk down the aisle to a romantic harpist or an inspiring string quartet or hire belly dancers to dance with guests & mingle at your drinks reception. If you’re planning a vintage-style wedding, what about some retro-style singers? Or having a pianist play your first dance song? The possibilities for wedding music truly are endless, end the night in flames with a flame thrower or a fire work display?
