Plan your ceremony;
Donna will guide you through every aspect of your ceremony to ensure you have all your favourite music while keeping within the liturgy of the mass. Donna will plan from the arrival of your guests at the church, the entrance of the bride, music throughout the mass and music for leaving the church. She will help you choose every song every step of the way. Musical accompaniment is provided and can vary from piano, violin, classical/jazz guitar, flautist, or an additional tenor voice depending on your needs etc.
The drinks reception is the time when your guests want to have a chat, some bubbles and laughter and celebrate your special day and relax before the meal. The addition of some easy listening music with contempory songs from jazz, pop, to musical theatre standards will add to the ambience for your guests.
This part of the day is hugely popular and proves effective in getting the wedding party into the mood for a fabulous night.
