Looking for ideas for your wedding reception entertainment? Here are some suggestions based on what we know works really well with a mix of some classic as well as unusual ideas for wedding reception entertainment!

You and your guests can enjoy some live music whilst the photographs are being taken - it can add a real touch of class to the atmosphere and make your event even more memorable! Popular classic music choices for wedding reception entertainment are harpists, string quartets, guitarists, violinists, swing singers, pianists, acoustic duos, saxophonists and jazz bands.

If you are looking for something unusual and different, how about a Mexican Mariachi band, Latin duo, African kora player, Caribbean steel band or brass band.

If you want to save money, then we recommend booking the same act for the ceremony and the drinks reception. Most acts will also offer a package for the ceremony & drinks reception (usually 2.5 - 3 hours).

As well as live music we offer lots of other acts for wedding reception entertainment. Hire one of our close up magicians, caricaturists or silhouette artists for some interactive entertainment or how about a human statue, juggler or circus performer? We also offer glamorous aerial bartenders who will pour champagne while hanging upside down!

We have provided acts for 1000's of satisfied customers since we began in 1999. Founder Geoff Robb is a professional classical guitarist himself, and really understands everything there is to know about booking live music for your wedding.

Find an act in your area by using our quick search tool, complete an enquiry form and we will get back to you with availability and prices.

We understand this is your big day, so once you have made your booking with us we always put you in direct contact with your performers so you can discuss the logistics, timings and music choices for your wedding.
