We had originally agreed you would play the violin for the ceremony, and the piano from thereafter but as you can see we have chosen pieces that may well be better played on the piano. What would your advice be as I’m sure you’re far better at knowing which will work,  better than us!

For the rest of the time we would like a selection of classical piano pieces, show tunes and pop tunes so that everyone can recognise and relate to something - the age range of the guests is mostly higher than might be the usual (probably 40+) as we ourselves are not a young couple :)

Wedding breakfast entrance music:

Bequi and I are into our computer games, looking  forward to hearing you play. On another note, there was something bequi and I forgot to ask about the wedding breakfast. We'd like it if you could play a tune, probably not what you'd expect...Imperial March from Star Wars We'd like this to be played after the master of ceremonies has announced us, and we walk into the orangery for dinner for the first time. I think people will find it pretty funny, and its a great tune.
