Your wedding day’s most intimate moments will be where you both exchange vows and make the verbal commitments to each other in front of friends, family and loved ones. The fact is, whether you are a straight or gay couple getting married in church or at a civil ceremony in a London borough register office, there will be witnesses there to your new departure in life.
They being there and giving that support deserves reward so ensuring they have a great time at the wedding reception is your responsibility. There’s nothing better than hiring one of the many quality London wedding bands to provide the entertainment for all.
Band playing as guests arrive
The wedding reception is usually commenced with welcoming drinks which gives the wedding photographer to take more treasured shots for the wedding album. As they mingle on arrival, the band will already be playing, usually a mixture of easy-listening classics by the likes of Sinatra and Andy Williams.
Music provided by London wedding bands certainly adds that extra something to the occasion which can bring together family members who perhaps haven’t seen each other for a while and help break the ice with new acquaintances. Of course, it is your choice what music is performed, but at least at this stage of the celebrations in a family wedding, the more relaxed style of music is the norm.
Wedding reception atmosphere
This of course continues during the meal, in the background, adding to the ambience of the atmosphere and perhaps alleviating any tensions between guests. After all, as the saying goes, you can choose your friends but not your family and not everyone is going to get on, at least at the start, until perhaps they’ve had a glass or two… but not too many!
Perhaps of the London wedding bands available, SensationBand is of the top notch variety.

Individual members of SensationBand have backed stars like Amy Winehouse, Lilly Allen, Mark Ronson, Incognito, Tao Cruz as well as many other pop greats. They would certainly bring an air of prestige to your own event!
