I attended two weddings recently which both had a band playing. They sounded great and in uniform they looked very impressive too. The first wedding was north of St Helens and featured the Hadock Brass Band, whose website can be found at www.haydockband.com. They played for Ruth and Thomas during their wedding Ceremony at Christ Church in Eccleston near St. Helens.

They were clearly enjoying themselves and the comradery of the Band, working together to perform to the very best of their ability and very professionally too.

The standard is therefore very high and the Band’s Music Director was there to bring everything together.

Everyone was clearly concentrating hard to do their best and collectively produced a highly polished and professional performance.

The second Band was the Rode Hall Silver Band whose website can be found at www.rodehallband.org.uk. They were playing at Laurelle’s and Jon’s wedding at Peckforton Castle (www.peckfortoncastle.co.uk).

They began in the Great Hall, a select number of band members playing during the ceremony. They entertained the guests prior to the bride’s arrival. They also played during the signing and when the newlyweds left the Hall for their blessing in the Chapel.

Then they played on the grass surrounded by the castle walls duirng the drinks reception and while te group photographs were taken. It is a big space to fill with quality sound and this they did  enterntaining the guest including the peacocks and birds of prey!

So something to consider if you are looking for live wedding music. As a wedding photographer they provide another interesting element looking great and sounding brilliant.
