We arrive and set up one hour prior to guests arriving, guests usually arrive 30 min before the ceremony. We play during those 30 min then play your bridal march then stop during the ceremony. We play a song for your signing of the certificate, then once the celebrant has pronounced you Husband and Wife, we play uplifting happy love songs for you both and your family and guests for 30 min to one hour depending on your timings. We can play for longer if required.
