Solo Wedding Cellist
So before I hit you with my top suggestions on music for your wedding, think on these questions.
This article is part of our Wedding Advice series. Solo cellists, when performing by themselves, can either perform unaccompanied or with backing tracks. I would say that cello on its own is quite limited so I usually suggest accompaniment of some sort! Usually couples are not quite sure of what the cello can play and they leave it in my hands to choose. It is important to remember that if you are booking a cellist that is purely solo with no accompaniment then the pieces will be more restricted to just the melody and occasionally some accompaniment but it sounds just as beautiful. We surveyed our top wedding cellists on the Encore platform and asked them which pieces were most popular requested by wedding couples. Listen on Spotify here :. When choosing music for signing the register, we recommend choosing some music that can easily be repeated. Adding a piano accompaniment to your cello performance increases the range of songs and repertoire that you can choose from. The piano is an extremely versatile instrument with a wide range of highs and lows, so you can expect a wider variety of sounds from this setup.

It usually starts when the doors open, or as early as 45 minutes prior to but no later than 20 minutes before the beginning of the ceremony. The same song can be used for each, but we love the idea of changing to another song when the bride enters to add drama and highlight the big entrance. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the recessional plays. Many couples choose to add interludes or songs played during significant moments such as the unity candle lighting or the ketubah signing. You might also want to include a postlude, which is a selection played while guests exit the ceremony. Have someone play a violin, or even a set of bagpipes, as guests head toward the exit. For example, a huge brass quintet and a small chapel won't be a match—the sound may overwhelm the space.
