The Waistcoats can offer the perfect music for your wedding ceremony. From our classically trained piano player to our guitar duo with vocals we can cover a wide range of requests – either as a standalone service or as part of our packages (e.g. including a band for the evening). Classical songs from Mozart to Bach are not a problem. Some of the standards we propose include The Celtic Alleluja, Canon in D and Ave Maria.
If you prefer a more upbeat touch, yet classy touch instead, we can spice up your ceremony with pop, folk or rock versions* by Bruno Mars, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles and many more!
*Some venues / priests may limit the selection of allowed songs.
A typical ceremony
- You pick your favorite songs and send us the schedule of the ceremony
- We arrive and set up early (and provide microphones if needed)
- We start playing while you’re walking down the isle or when your guests arrive (whatever was agreed on)
- We keep playing until the ceremony is over
(The actual length of the performance will be shorter, as we will only play during the moments that were agreed on and when we’re allowed to perform but we will be standing by the entire time to make sure music will be played when necessary).
Get in touch and we’ll discuss our prices and options depending on your needs. We will send you our interactive digital playlist where you can pick your favorite songs. We can advise you on the right song during the ceremony and also regarding possible limitations depending on the venue and, in case of a church wedding, the priests.
We will arrive early to set up our gear in the designated location. In case you also booked us for your aperitif/cocktail hour, should it be held in a separate location from the ceremony then we will arrive and set up early enough, so that there will be no delay between both services. There will always be at least one staff member available on each location. The same is true if you also booked us for the main reception party.
There is no step 3! Just enjoy your big day, we will start our services as agreed upon beforehand and make sure that the music will give your ceremony that special something! We will follow the program as you have outlined beforehand and should something unexpected come up (e.g. a priest asks for music where we had none scheduled beforehand) we will always be able to react and make sure that everything runs smoothly.
Here is a sample of a religious wedding (Irish rite), in collaboration with an external violin player:
