I had never been to this chapel before and it was a very grand venue for a wedding ceremony. The acoustics were fantastic and the violin sounded so sweet when I was performing my new instrumental, Ave Maria by Bach on solo violin. I certainly enjoyed being able to perfrom several pieces on the solo violin as well as working as wedding singer.
Brides often ask for a little advice about what they should have performed on their big day. Everyone will be different. However, I think a bit of variety is always lovely. So a wedding singer and also a wedding musician. I love getting the chance to play solo violin and also sing and play guitar. perhaps an instrumental of Canon in D for walking down the aisle and perhaps Lord of the Dance for a triumphant exit.
Remember. very often priests will only allow hymns to be sung at the ceremony. However, you can often get away with an instrumental version of a popular song. Today I played and instrumental version of One Thousand Years by Christina Perri for the entrance. Perfect!
