Wedding Ceremony Music

There is no limit to how much music can be included in a wedding ceremony, but the most common scenario is:

  • Prelude – music to entertain guests before the ceremony begins
  • Processional – the song(s) played while the bridal party & bride walk down the aisle; can be same or different songs
  • Signing – a song to entertain guests while the bride and groom sign the registry
  • Recessional – the song played while the couple walks back down the aisle after the ceremony

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. If I’m not already familiar with a song, I’m happy to learn it. Song lists of my most requested wedding music can be found on my Song Lists page.

Cocktail and Dinner Reception Music

Live music during your wedding reception’s cocktail and dinner adds lovely ambiance and entertainment. I always ensure the correct volume so that guests can talk naturally while still enjoying the music. I also provide my own background music for breaks for a seamless transition. My most requested cocktail and dinner music can be found in the “Event Music” list on my Song Lists page.

First Dances

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. Commonly requested First Dance songs can be found in the “Wedding Music” list on my Song Lists page.

Original Custom Wedding Songs

The ultimate personalized gift for those looking for something truly special and unique. I work with my clients to create wedding songs that reflect their personal stories. Samples of my original work can be found on my Original Music page. Each song includes a live performance at the wedding, and a professional keepsake recording.

Grand Piano Rentals

Wedding Pianist, Kimberley Dunn, Berkeley Church TorontoGrand Pianos add undeniable beauty and sophistication to a wedding and can be brought into almost any sized space, big or small. Rentals include delivery and tuning, starting around $1500. If you are interested in having a grand piano for your wedding, I am happy to help coordinate that for you. For inspiration, you can check out my Photos page which features grand pianos in many beautiful wedding venues in Ottawa and beyond.

Religious, Church & Catholic Weddings

I have performed for many faith-based weddings in the Ottawa area as well as Catholic Wedding Masses which most commonly include some or all of the following: prelude, processional, responsorial psalm, gospel acclamation/alleluia, lighting of unity candle, offertory, communion, signing, and recessional. Commonly requested religious songs can be found on my Song Lists page.

Outdoor Weddings

I can perform at outdoor weddings provided there is a shaded area, the temperature is above 15°C, and there is no chance of rain in the forecast. If there is a chance of rain in the forecast on your wedding day, there would need to be a back-up plan to set up indoors or have a tent provided.
