Thank you for visiting Playing with Fire’s wedding page! PLAYING WITH FIRE is a collective providing the finest strolling musicians for weddings and functions in Cape Town.
We know you want to honour each other, your parents, relatives and friends with the best experience at your wedding that you can afford! Consider how recorded music is all too common; having live musicians is a rare treat, and is a brilliant way to say how much you care for them all.
Please let me share my observation of many weddings. Many couples spend a lot on flowers, wedding cakes, dresses and decor. These are certainly important elements, but many couples fail to realize that live music is what makes a wedding festive and memorable! What is truly memorable for guests years later is the intimacy and vibe of a wedding day; not the cakes and decorations!
Don’t underestimate the power and magic of live music to settle and prepare a congregation for the special spiritual bond about to happen between two people at a wedding, to catch that moment of exhilaration just after the ceremony, or to break the ice among a group of strangers and to unify them. Good musicians do more for your wedding than all the organizers, decorations and trimmings put together! Don’t skimp on the music!
WHEN DO WE NEED MUSIC?
Apart from the reception, there are three times in a wedding ceremony when music is commonly called for. These are:
- Before the service as people take their seats
- The entrance and exit music, and perhaps during the signing of the register
- After the ceremony for an hour or ninety minutes while drinks are served and photographs are taken
