Weddings

lexsmall2Music is the perfect way of creating the desired mood for your special day. Alexandra has the ability and versatility to perform across several genres providing her with a wide repertoire. She will work with you to meet your individual requirements, which could be a Classical Aria as you walk down the aisle during the Wedding Ceremony, a Ballad for your first dance as a newly wedded couple, or perhaps something more contemporary for the Wedding Reception.

Alexandra can perform during any part of your special day, however the most popular times are during the Wedding Breakfast (i.e. the sit down meal) and during the ceremony (walking down the aisle, signing of the register and exit music).

For the Wedding Breakfast, Alexandra will match the occasion with relaxed, unobtrusive, atmospheric music. In general Alexandra’s set lists for the Wedding Breakfast provide a mix from the pop, jazz and country genres; this mix of music blends well together and is suitable for the moment. Alexandra performs music which is mainly acoustic covers with Alexandra’s own impression on the songs.

For the Wedding Ceremony, Alexandra will again, match the atmosphere, usually a Classical song (such as Ave Maria or Pie Jesu) or something along the Pop genre line (such as Songbird by Eva Cassidy or All Of Me by John Legend) – it is completely up to you and your partner’s preference, but Alexandra can help you choose and make suggestions.
