|MUSICAL ACCOMPANIMENT FOR A CIVIL WEDDING
The Rubin Quartet will start to play 15 minutes before the start of the ceremony. The first guests enter the wedding hall and listening to classical music puts them into a celebratory mood.
The ceremony itself begins with the procession. The groom comes with his mother followed by the bride and her father. Another possibility is that the groom will await the procession on the spot where the ceremony will take place. Depending on which variation the couple chooses you will hear one or two compositions. The wedding procession is only a working title and doesn’t always have to consist of works by Felix Mendelssohn or Richard Wagner. You can choose from the many ceremonial compositions we offer.
The procession is followed by an address by the official performing the ceremony during which music is not normally played so the speech can be heard. The music will begin again after the rings have been exchanged and the first kiss. Again, the music can be chosen from our repertoire. It’s suitable for the music to be quiet and not drown out the official’s invitations to sign the wedding certificate and his final best wishes to the newlyweds. After the signing the guests finally approach the newlyweds to offer their congratulations and photos can be taken. At this moment the mood lightens, so we suggest you choose music from the ‚lighter‘ genres such as: swing, pop music or musical melodies to create a relaxed atmosphere. We can also accompany the photo-taking and entertain the guests while the newlyweds go off in the distance to take their photos.
MUSICAL ACCOMPANIMENT FOR A RELIGIOUS (CHURCH) WEDDING
Religious wedding ceremonies take place either with or without mass, which changes the length of the ceremony (appx. one hour, or forty minutes). Music is an inseparable part of this ceremony and supports its spiritual dimension and ceremonial character. The number of compositions and their arrangements during the ceremony will be agreed between the couple to be married and their priest. As a rule 2-3 works will be played during the ceremony.
a rule 2-3 works will be played during the ceremony. The wedding procession is often played at the end when the newlyweds leave the altar.
MUSIC FOR THE WEDDING RECEPTION AND DINNER
Our quartet also accompanies the entire wedding reception, the first dance of the newlyweds or we provide the evening entertainment. For dance music drum samples are used. Our violinist can sing some classical or popular songs.
