Your Winnipeg wedding ceremony musicians and their sound equipment will arrive in advance with all of the set-up occurring prior to your event start time.
Typically a wedding ceremony will consist of six musical segments
The wedding pre-ceremony will begin with between 10 – 20 min. of music performed before the first processional
• First Procession:
Music for the Flower girl, Ring bearer, and Bridesmaids to walk down the aisle. Approx. 5 – 7 min. of music.
• Brides Processional:
The primary Processional, (when the Bride walks down the aisle), is when the bride walks down the aisle to meet the groom at the alter for the wedding ceremony to begin. Approx. 3 – 5 min. of music.
• Signing of the Marriage License:
The Bride and Groom, along with the Bridesmaid and Best man will follow the Priest, (or wedding Commissioner), to a table, (or some other area). The marriage license will be signed and witnessed. Some photographs are generally taken as well. Approx. 7 – 10 min. of music.
The recessional begins with the announcement of the couple as husband and wife. Next, the wedded couple will walk from the alter with each other, (the recessional). Approx. 4 – 6 min. of music.
The post-ceremony consists of 15 – 35 min. of additional music after the recessional. This is generally performed while the guests exit the event area (or when photo’s are taken of the newly wed couple by family and friends).
NOTE: If the photographer will be taking photo’s on-site – with guests enjoying Champaign and h’orderves – music would generally last throughout this entire period, (30 – 35 min).
