trumpet will make a spectacular difference to your wedding ceremony, ideally
accompanied by our experienced Surrey Brass Church
or your own recommended organist or pianist. Many people like to keep it their
ceremony traditional and with a large selection of music suitable for
both Church and Civil ceremonies, a trumpet soloist is the most cost
effective solution for your wedding ceremony music.
Many people are choosing to get married in civil ceremonies in a
range of locations. Sometimes, organising music for such a venue can be
problematic because there is no organ available - with Surrey Brass this problem
is solved immediately, and you can still have traditional wedding music as well
as something a bit different.
Brass instruments are "green" and do not require electricity to work!
We are extremely versatile, having the delicacy not to overwhelm small
venues, whilst being able to add drama to larger halls as required.
A brass quintet is more versatile whilst still offering the
traditional music that is so popular - something a bit different from
other wedding musicians!

Descants to Hymns,
The Recessional to mark the departure of the happy couple
down the aisle.

Guests thoroughly enjoyed the music and were very complimentary.
We would be delighted to arrange a programme of music to suit your precise
