Civil Ceremonies


Although civil ceremony marriages can take place in a registry office, it is widely popular now to have the marriage ceremony at a properly licensed hotel or country house. You will need to have given at least 15 days prior notice to your local register office(s), and you will need two people to act as witnesses to the marriage and sign the register at the civil ceremony venue. Music for the civil ceremony must contain no references to religion either in its title or its concept, so it is important that music that you request played from your pianist conforms to this rule and if you are in doubt, double-check titles of your desired music with the registrar beforehand.

Acting as your pianist outside of the actual civil ceremony on the day, I will of course be able to play any choice of music, including any of your favourites, during the drinks reception or wedding breakfast.

Many hotels and licensed venues for marriage hold the ceremony in a different part of the venue to where your guests will amass for drinks or the meal. It may be necessary for your pianist to relocate between the different elements. This is no problem for me - all my equipment is portable and can be moved in a very short time, but you will have to make an allowance for a small break. If there is a piano available at the ceremony area, I can of course set up the digital piano prior to the ceremony, wherever you require - ready for continuing after the ceremony. The venue should be informed to allow a sufficient area for the pianist where not to inconvenience guests or the passage of waiters or waitresses.
