On Saturday I played for an outdoor ceremony at Little Hermitage, Kent. This venue from the 18th century has some traditional stone seating facing a traditional stone gazebo under which the Bride and Groom can marry in a civil ceremony. The owners of Little Hermitage live upstairs and rent out the ground floor of the Grade II listed Georgian manor house for weddings and private functions.
The room used for the wedding breakfast faces the gazebo and the Bride starts her aisle walk as she exits this room which means it is a long aisle walk (and meant I could play the full introduction to Canon In D, not always possible). The drinks reception was then held on the lawn between the gazebo and the house and the wedding breakfast in the house itself.
Ceremony song choices:
Processional: Canon in D by Pachelbel
Signing of the register: You Are The Sunshine Of My Life by Stevie Wonder
Recessional: Virtual Insanity by Jamiroquai
