Q We've always loved the idea of having music at our ceremony that doesn't feel too intrusive and the flute and harp would be ideal. Would we have to have classical music, or could we choose something more contemporary?
A Graham and Kylie West says: Often the combination of flute and harp leads people to believe that they're only associated with classical music, but this is far from the case. Queen, Ed Sheeran, Christina Perri, Bruno Mars and similar artists can all be performed. We suggest that you choose music that's special to you both, such as when you first met or artists and melodies that you're interested in. Your day is made up of several elements and live music's a wonderful way of tying these together.

- As your guests are seated for the ceremony, we perform a selection of music to set the scene and entertain them prior to your entrance.

- Your ceremony music will include the bride's entrance, two or three pieces whilst you are signing the register and one other for you to walk back down the aisle to as a married couple.

- During your drinks reception, we perform a range of songs and music from all genres so there's something for everyone.

Live background music's perfect during your wedding breakfast. We perform requests during the meal, and we can also include music from Disney films to make sure that children feel included too.

Not only does live music sound great, but it also creates a visual element. Guests frequently talk to us about our music and the instruments we use as they're unusual, so they often want to know more about them and how they work.
