Using small amplifiers, the sound is soft and just the right volume to be heard behind people talking, without being too loud. The repertoire is a mixture of popular love songs, music from the shows and memorable Classics. Darens music has been used extensively on TV shows and numerous radio sessions.
For The Ceremony
'I can play as your guests enter the room and take their seats, normally about 15 minutes before the ceremony. This creates a lovely warm atmosphere and also avoids any awkward 'silences'!
As the Bride walks in I will play a piece of your choice that has special meaning. This could be a popular love song, a piece of music from a show or traditional wedding music, or the song that was 'playing when you met'!
During the signing of the register, it is nice to have a couple of 'personal fond favourites'. I will be happy to find and learn any special pieces if they are not already in my repertoire.
I will then play as everybody leaves the room, again putting the finishing touch to a wonderful ceremony!
For the Reception/Wedding Breakfast
The Classical Guitar gives a lovely background ambience for the drinks reception and the meal, whether inside or out. I use high quality yet very small amplifiers which deliver a warm, pleasing tone without being intrusive to conversation.
To help you decide if this is the music for your special day, I will be more than happy to send you a Free Sample CD/tape. Just send me an e-mail with your details, or give me a call and I will post you your sample and full information.
