Musicians for Small Weddings
Solo musicians for small weddings may just be the answer to 2020 weddings. Have your wedding plans changed due to COVID-19? If so, we can help with our top 10 solo musicians for small weddings. Adding a solo musician to your big day can still create the romantic atmosphere that you hoped for. At Find a Performer we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality musicians for all types of weddings and in light of recent changes we wanted to put together a list of our solo musicians available for weddings this year.
Solo Wedding Harpists
Book one of our stunning wedding harpists for your special day – we have harpists in all areas of the UK and Ireland and they are the perfect addition to a small wedding.
The harp is a very popular choice for weddings – either during the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast or any combination of these. It is a truly romantic instrument and will also look great in your wedding photos.
Solo Wedding Guitarists
We represent the UK’s finest wedding guitarists and can help you find the perfect guitarist for your wedding. Find a Performer began as The Classical Guitar Agency in 1999 and founder Geoff Robb has played at hundreds of weddings so give us a call for free and friendly advice.
We offer wedding guitarists who play the guitar and sing acoustic cover versions of your favourite songs or instrumental wedding guitarists who will perform popular or classical guitar music.
Solo Wedding Pianist
Book one of our professional wedding pianists for your wedding ceremony, reception or meal. We offer a range of wedding pianists including classically trained pianists, cocktail pianists who play songs from the shows and other jazz standards and pianists who can also sing.
For the ceremony, our wedding pianists can play as guests take their seats and then play your chosen pieces of music for your bridal entrance, signing of the register and couple’s exit. They can then play during the drinks reception or take a break and set up to play during your wedding breakfast.
Solo Wedding Singer
Our wedding ceremony singers can perform your favourite song for your bridal entrance, signing of the register and couple’s exit. They can then stay and perform during the drinks reception and/or wedding breakfast.
Solo Wedding Violinists
Our wedding violinists will generally play acoustically during your wedding ceremony and make great musicians for small weddings. They can also play along to a backing track if required. Popular wedding ceremony choices are Pachelbel’s Canon in D and 1000 Years by Christina Perri.
During the drinks reception or wedding meal, our violin players can play a mix of modern popular music alongside classical favourites. Many of our wedding violinists will use a backing track for this part of the day as well as providing their own amplification.
Solo Vintage Singers
Our fantastic vintage solo singers and performers ooze vintage style with jazz and swing vocalists and musicians who have many years of experience. They specialise in music from the 1920s up to the 1960s made famous by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billy Holiday, Etta James and Nina Simone to name a few. Whether you are looking for a 1940’s Wartime sing-a-longs or an evening of classic standard’s we have everything you need for your vintage-inspired wedding.
Solo Wedding Saxophone Players
For your ceremony, our Wedding Saxophonists make the perfect musicians for small weddings. They can play music as guests are taking their seats and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the bride – music is a great way to break the anticipation and tension. They can then play a request for the bride’s entrance followed by a piece of music during the signing of the register and couple’s exit. After the ceremony, our wedding saxophonists can move their equipment to the drinks reception and continue to entertain your guests during the canapés and photographs. A solo sax player doesn’t need too much room if you are short of space – they can play standing up and just need a corner or small area to fit their amplifier or PA system.
Solo Wedding Cellist
Hire a Cello Player for your event – the cello is an evocative and beautiful sounding instrument and really works as a solo instrument. Solo repertoire can include Bach’s cello suites and various arrangements of classical and popular music.
Rat Pack Swing Singers
Our Rat Pack and swing singers perform the classic songs from the “swing era” which was at its peak in the 1930s and 1940s. These classic songs consist of a strong rhythm section of double bass and drums, a brass section (trumpet, trombone, sax etc) and were usually fronted by a singer.
We have a great selection of flamenco guitarists and flamenco guitar duos throughout the UK available for weddings, restaurants and Spanish themed events. Some Flamenco Guitarists can also offer classical music from Spain and popular arrangements but some are pure flamenco artists.
Let us help you find the perfect entertainment for your wedding day. Although it may not be the ‘big day’ you may have dreamed of we can certainly help you make it extra special. If your going for an outdoor festival themed wedding check out our recent blog Wedding Festival Ideas and Inspiration.
