6th May, 2013
The wedding season is in full swing now - meeting, greeting and preparing music and songs with so many couples - while performomg at ceremonies all over Connaught.
I recently set up my new "Twitter Account" also so please feel free to contact me on same. New material always being added to my wedding song and wedding music list.
I am updating my song and music list regularly so keep checking in to find my new material. In the next couple of weeks I am going to be recording some new audios so super excited about this. All new material will be available on my you tube channel and of course I will be featuring them on my business page on Facebook.
I have received so much positive feedback regarding the following ceremony sample layout on where you need to put music etc. glad it is of help to you all !!
Just to let you all know what you need to be choosing ;
Entrance (Generally one piece of music or song )
Lighting of Individual candles: Short piece of music
Psalm: generally sung but can also be read
Lighting of Unity Candle: Muisc or song (Harp instrumentals are very popular at this point)
Offertry : Instrumental either on Harp / Piano or flute or I can sing a hymn if desired.
Comm: Two Hymns or One Hymn and an one instrumental (Harp , Piano or flute)
Reflection (optional) very often read by family member or friend, or song or music.
Signing of Register: Two songs or instrumental
Recessional: Usually song or instrumental ( upbeat and happy) - two pieces may be choosen for the recessional.
This is an example of music and songs I performed at a recent wedding ceremony:
Entrance Gabriels Oboe (Harp)
Lighting of Individual candles: Inisheer (Flute)
Psalm: Mo Ghra Thu (sung with Piano Accomp)
Unity Candle: The Rose (Harp)
Offertry: South Wind (Harp Instrumental)
Offering of Peace: Flute Instrumental
Comm: Ave Maria and the Prayer
Signing of Reg. The Voyage and Make you Feel My Love (Guitar)
Recessional: One day Like This (Elbow)
As always it is so important to remember to check all music with your priest / registrar.
Happy planning everyone and if you need help - just call !!!
