This music is performed for the wedding guests as they begin to gather for the ceremony. It brings the families together for the first time as they wait for the bride and groom, setting the mood of the ceremony and for the rest of the day. Typically it lasts from fifteen to twenty minutes, and flows smoothly into the music for the Processional.The time Allegra Strings begins to play the prelude is the start of the contract.


This is the music performed as the wedding party makes their way to the place where the wedding ceremony will be performed. Often a separate piece is used for the Bride’s procession.

Musical interludes can be used at different places in the ceremony – between readings, as a musical reflection, or to accompany activities like the lighting of candles and the signing of the register.



The tone of this music is joyful and energetic. The vows are completed, the legal documents are signed and the married couple is presented to their community for the first time.


This music follows the recessional, and accompanies the guests as they leave. It can be longer if guests remain at the site of the ceremony.

Additional musicians
Allegra Strings is usually able to add a singer or a trumpet player to the ceremony if you wish. Please contact Allegra Strings for more information.
