Repertoire for Weddings


Below is a sample of some of the most popular pieces for weddings.

 

The final playlist for your wedding will be agreed after full discussion and any pieces you like which are not already in my repertoire can usually be learned very quickly.

 

I can play most pieces on piano or organ but will always discuss with you which is most appropriate and effective.
