Wedding Breakfast Entertainment
Let us help you choose your wedding breakfast entertainment. There are so many types of music that can be enjoyed during your wedding meal and we have listed the most popular choices below.
Singing Waiters provide a fantastic blend of music, entertainment and laughter and really are the perfect wedding breakfast entertainment! They will set up a discreet PA system in the room before guests arrive and serve guests with drinks during the meal in matching outfits to the other waiters and waitresses. Then when nobody is expecting it, they will amaze your guests with a surprise performance. We also offer Secret Bollywood Dancers disguised as waitresses.
Our other popular acts for wedding breakfast entertainment are solo swing and Rat Pack singers who perform the music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Michael Bublé etc - this is great for all ages and they will usually have a wireless microphone and can perform around the room engaging with guests.
Solo guitarist/vocalists, violin players, harpists, string quartets, classical guitarists, jazz duos and pianists are also very popular choices. If your wedding has a particular theme or if you are looking to bring in entertainment to represent your culture then let us know as we can help!
As well as our great professional musicians, we also offer caricaturists and silhouette artists to draw your guests and give them a memento to take home. Hiring a close up magician to perform magic around the tables is always a big hit and great for all ages!
Your wedding breakfast entertainment can be background or interactive. We also offer dancers who can meet and greet your guests in costume, perform 2 or 3 short sets in between the courses and then stay and offer an interactive workshop to get people on the dance floor. Themes include Bollywood and Bhangra dancers, 1920s Gatsby dancers, Cossack Dancers, Flamenco and Greek Dancers.
The wedding meal can be a bit more noisy than the drinks reception so unless you have a relatively small number of guests then it is a good idea to have an act that can bring their own amplification. This isn't necessary if you have a string quartet or string trio as these instruments can be fairly loud. Classical guitarists will always amplify as it is a quiet instrument and a harp only needs amplification if you have over 100/120 guests. Singers, jazz or pop duos and bands will always have their own amplification.
If you are booking live music for your drinks reception you should be able to extend the booking by 2 hours and get them to stay and play during the meal as well. If you are trying to keep within a tight budget then this option is the most cost effective as the musicians are already at your event.
