If you’re having your ceremony at a church, you won’t need a lot of this information. The church staff and clergy should assist you with sound and music as well as helping you to plan the ceremony. But, if you’re planning to have the wedding at the same location as the reception, listen up.
Music at a wedding is an absolute must! Music sets the mood for the occasion and a big day is often remembered by the entertainment. Of course the music you choose reflects your personality and theme, but what will work best at your celebration?
For the wedding DJ ceremony we use a sound system System with built in amplifiers, mixer with 6 inputs for microphones, laptop for music and live instruments like Saxophone, Violin & guitar.
We use professional grade sound and audio equipment so that the wedding officiant, the “saying of the vows”, exchanging of the rings, etc can be heard throughout the ceremony area, no matter where your wedding guests are seated or standing.
Picking the music for your wedding can be fun but it’s only when you get down to the nitty gritty, you realise how many songs you have to choose and how time consuming it can be! While it can be hard work, your song choices will really add some personality to your day and are a great way to make the ceremony more meaningful to you as a couple.
