2017 Wedding Ceremony Options

All-Inclusive Ceremony Packages 

click here for reception only

Forget about an i-pod wedding, every Bride should be able to walk down the aisle to her chosen piece played LIVE on her Special Day. But what if you want something modern, unusual or just not readily available? Not all musicians are accomplished arrangers, and hiring someone to do this for you can significantly add to your costs…

If one of the reasons you have chosen to marry in France is because of the romance of an outdoor ceremony, you need to be sure that your music can be heard be everyone. For some ensembles PA hire, if offered at all, can often be an extra expense…

That is why I include set-up & use of 2 PA systems, travel expenses, breaks & up to three special musical arrangements in my All-Inclusive Ceremony Packages. See below for examples and do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your ideas or requirements.


Music for your Prelude, Ceremony, Cocktails & Banquet

Live Music for Modest Budgets

Everyone has their budget constraints, & live music can often be one area where couples sadly feel compelled to compromise. Never fear! I am now offering a package which will open up Live Ceremony Music to those on even the tightest of budgets…

Romance Ceremony Package

Approximately 1 hour of music comprising:

  • 15 minutes of prelude music to set the scene before your ceremony (4-5 songs)
  • 2-3 ceremony pieces (processional, interval & recessional music) chosen by the Bride & Groom from my existing repertoire
  • 30 minutes of mixed repertoire following the ceremony (8-10 songs)
  • Travel within a 80km radius of 87440 (inner circle on map below)
  • Hire, set-up & use of one PA system (no location changes)

For a daytime ceremony (beginning & ending between 10am & 6pm)

€350

You may choose all of the pieces to be played, or just the music for your ceremony, and allow me to select the rest to complement your choices:

All pieces must be chosen from my existing repertoire – If you would like a song or songs not currently listed, please choose one of my All-Inclusive packages which include up to three special requests. Alternatively contact me for an à la carte option. (A minimum fee of €350 applies to all engagements.)

Additional Time

If you require additional playing time for your reception this can be arranged for €75 per half hour.


Outdoor Ceremonies

Outdoor ceremonies are welcome, but subject to certain weather, temperature & location restrictions – please ask for details


Payment

Payment must be made in advance. I accept PayPal (a small charge will apply), International Bank (SEPA) transfers and French cheques (in euros). I ask for a small deposit to secure the date and confirm the booking.  The balance will be due in full six weeks before the event. Due to logistical considerations I do not accept payment in cash on the day.


Travel Supplement

Prices include travel to and from any venue within the inner circle shown on the map below. Further distances (inside the outer circle) will incur additional charges. For venues located outside the area shown I offer a special package to include the ceremony and 4 hours of additional music, with travel and accommodation expenses included.  Please contact me for a tailored quote, giving date, venue address (including postal code), and ceremony start time.
