Choosing live music for your ceremony entertainment guarantees an elegant start to your big day. Plus, it makes for an especially memorable (and melodic!) walk down the aisle. Guests will be wowed by this beautiful arrangement!
sFOURzando plays beautiful music for more than weddings. What about live, string music for memorial services, cocktail parties, and formal dinners? We have a full range of jazz, pop and rock music for when you want to spice it up! Whether you want a duo, trio or quartet, timeless acoustic instruments, or modern electric strings; the choice is yours. Contact us to discuss adding live music.
When hiring sFOURsando for your wedding ceremony, you’ll receive music during the following parts of the ceremony:
Music as guests arrive, usually for 15-25 minutes.
Music for the bridal procession
Music during the signing of the register and/or candlelighting ceremony
Music as you and your partner leave the ceremony
We often play at the reception as well, for example during the cocktail hour and/or during dinner. String quartet are perfect for background music – they are loud enough to be heard, but not so loud that they’ll drown out conversation.
All black is our standard dress code. However, we can provide alternative dress, e.g. colourful dresses to match a summer wedding or a particular theme, if discussed in advance.
We strongly recommend that all communication with sFOURzando be kept within CrowdPleaser's secure quoting and booking platform. We can only guarantee deposits paid through the CrowdPleaser website. You should also make sure their quote includes their cancellation and payment terms.
These are the categories of entertainment or other services offered by sFOURzando.
We require approximately 2 x 3 meters – imagine a Volkswagen Beetle with half of the bonnet missing - covered space. The musicians’ bows will be moving, so it’s important that guests aren’t standing or seated too close. Instruments are very fragile and expensive, so it’s best to keep children and exuberant dancers at a safe distance! If guests are curious, we will be happy to talk about their instruments, so feel free to ask. We will also need an armless chair for each person, and a power outlet (only if we are performing on electric instruments). We take care of the rest.
There are typically 3 segments to a wedding ceremony where music should be considered.
Wagner: Bridal Chorus (Here comes the bride)
Handel: Air from Water Music
Bach: Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring
Delibes: Flower Duet from Lakme
A Thousand Years (Christina Perri-Twilight)
Moon River (Breakfast at Tiffany’s)
I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You (Elvis)
Please consider one piece. If you have a large bridal party you may wish to choose a separate song for the arrival of the bride. Please note that there will be a short pause between the two songs.
Signing and/or Candlelighting:
Schubert: Ave Maria
Vivaldi: Largo from Winter (Four Seasons)
Bach: Double Concerto in D minor second movement Largo.
Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)
What a Wonderful World (Louis Armstrong)
Forrest Gump (Main Theme)
Please consider one or two pieces as the signing of the documents can take a while with photos being taken.
Handel: Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
Mendelsshon: Wedding March
Vivaldi: Spring from Four Seasons
Handel: Firework Suite La Rejouissance
Handel: Alla Hornpipe-Water Music Suite
Bitter Sweet Symphony (The Verve)

All you need is Love (Beatles)
