Wedding Ceremony Music

Ottawa Riviera Restaurant Byward Market Live Wedding Music by Singer Pianist, Kimberley Dunn

Ceremony songs are very personal choices and I encourage you to choose any songs that are special to you, they don’t have to be from my song lists. Anything I’m not already familiar with, I’m happy to learn.

Prelude – music before the ceremony
Processional – the entrance song(s) for bridal party & bride
Signing – a song during the signing of the registry
Recessional – the exit song at the end of the ceremony

Cocktail &  Dinner Music

Ottawa Chateau Laurier Adam Room, Wedding Event Reception, Live Music by Kimberley Dunn

Live music during your cocktail and dinner reception adds lovely ambiance and entertainment, especially when it’s music that your guests all know and love. After your ceremony, I can continue to play throughout your cocktails and dinner until your DJ takes over for the dance. My rates actually drop significantly after the first hour, so a great reason to take advantage and have more live music.

Cocktail Hour – light background music to add ambience
Dinner Music – I am happy to coordinate with speeches and can also act as MC

First Dance Music

Wedding First Dance Music at Le Belvedere in Chelsea Quebec near Ottawa by Kimberley Dunn

A bride and groom’s first dance is a focal point of any wedding and can be made even more special with live music. You are welcome to choose any songs that are special to you and I’m happy to perform separate songs for Father-Daughter and Mother-Son Dances or combine the dances into one song. I can also work with you to create your own original wedding song.
