Live Wedding Band - Many live function bands have a wide repertoire of songs and will only be too happy to play songs that your guests will recognise, and in doing so you will very quickly have everyone dancing and singing the whole night through!

Wedding Caricaturist -There is a mind-boggling choice of entertainers available for weddings. There seem to be thousands of bands, DJs and magicians to choose from. A little rarer are the Party Cartoonists. They often refer to themselves as On-The-Spot Caricaturists.

Ceremony Music - Music, whether it be played from a tape or CD, by live musicians or by the church organist can really add to the atmosphere of the wedding ceremony and perhaps you can have ceremony music for your wedding breakfast as well.

Wedding DJ - A good DJ will both listen to what you want played but also be firm about what he *knows* needs to played. If a DJ simply takes your list and plays your songs one after another, you can ruin the atmosphere, on the other hand if he simply ignores your list it will probably ruin your night.

Dove Release - White doves are a symbol of peace, love, faith and fidelity, and the release of a pair of doves or a flock of doves by the bride and groom will signify they are about to embark on a new life together.

Wedding Magician - Magic has undergone many changes over the years and it's no longer just about the magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat, or being able to guess the card you chose.

Wedding Sky Lanterns - The concept of releasing sky lanterns can be traced back nearly two thousand years to China where the tradition originates. At first sky lanterns were used as a signalling tool by the military as the glow from the lanterns could be seen for miles.

Other Wedding Entertainment - Incorporating some entertainment into your wedding can have many benefits, you can hire a magician to entertain your guests whilst your photos are being taken, or a children's entertainer to keep the kids occupied.
