Whilst planning your wedding, you may be wondering how to impress your guests and make their experience as memorable and spectacular as possible. Of course, this special day will be a fond memory for you and all your closest friends and family, regardless – but how can you make it extraordinary?
Wedding entertainment has evolved to encompass far more than a simple DJ, with some incredible options now available to amaze you and your guests. If you’re looking to tie the knot in the heart of England, you can benefit from the diverse and impressive supply of artists and performers that call London home. From dazzling acrobatic performers to electrifying live bands, here are some of the most memorable forms of entertainment to consider for your wedding.
As a melting pot of numerous cultures, there’s at least a dozen bands to choose from for every genre, taste and style in London. You can centre your band around a theme, if your wedding has one, by hiring a swing band for a 50’s retro vibe or a folk band to compliment a laid back, bohemian aesthetic.
Whether you want rock, jazz, pop, blues or anything in between, a live band can really help to get all of your guests up and dancing the night away at your wedding. Be sure to look in good time to secure your preferred act, as the best wedding bands in London can be booked up many months in advance.
Booking a performer is a sure-fire way to ‘wow’ your wedding guests. Not only is an act of this nature unexpected, but it’s impressive and awe-inspiring for all ages. With the fantastic array of artistic professionals in the hub of London, you have the pick of the bunch.
From acrobats to belly dancers, magicians, fire performers to comedy acts, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding an extraordinary entertainer for your wedding. Be sure to discuss your ideas with your venue before you book though, to ensure they can accommodate your preferred act.
It’s not just the evening reception portion of your day that can benefit from some entertainment. Throughout the day, you may want to consider memorable ways to surprise your guests. Why not hire singing waiters for your wedding breakfast, who burst into song and serenade your guests as they’re served their meals?
A caricature artist can dot from table to table and sketch your guests, which will give them a memento of your special day to take home with them – and is sure to raise a few laughs. Equally, a magician can be a great way to incorporate some fun into the slower parts of the day, either by offering a performance whilst you go off for your photographs or by entertaining each table separately between courses.
