A good choice is a string quartet which consists of two violins, a viola, a cello and an organist who can play hymns for church ceremonies and also at the wedding breakfast. The advantages of choosing a string quartet to play on your special day is that they are able to play indoors and outdoors, are small enough for conversation to flow easily and their music is sophisticated to create a formal atmosphere.
However, remember live musicians must have public liability insurance to cover them if a guest is injured by their equipment and make sure that they have their portable appliance test certificate for any electrical equipment used by the band.
Your wedding reception party is when everyone can ditch the posh hats, kick off their shoes, and really enjoy themselves.

Last night I went to Evensong at St Paul’s Cathedral, to listen to some of the members of Trio of Trebles singing.

Weddings take place in the Chapel of The Order of the British Empire which is in the crypt of St Paul’s, but first you need a Special Licence granted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The bad news is that your licence application will only be considered if you fall into the following categories:
- Members of the Order of St Michael and St George
- Members of the Order of the British Empire
- Holders of the British Empire Medal
- Members of the Imperial Society of Knights Bachelor
- Children (but not grandchildren) of the above
No wonder you never see confetti on the steps…!
