With Nouveau Ensembles dynamic combination, you can choose various musical combinations within our group to play for your ceremony, giving you a greater selection of repertoire (both instrumental and vocal) to choose from and really personalising the musical program specifically for you, which will enhance the ambiance on your special day. Nouveau Ensemble can play for: Pre-service music (setting the atmosphere, beautiful background music, 15 minutes prior to the bridal entry) Processional (Bridal entry) Signing of the register (during the signing of the register and accompanying photos) Recessional (Bride and Groom exit) Post Function (after cocktails/drinks)/Reception As noted, we would also be delighted to talk to you about repertoire selections for your post function cocktails/reception needs referring to our lists for wedding classics, jazz standards or contemporary pieces (both vocal and instrumental). Should you require any assistance selecting pieces from our large range of repertoire, please do not hesitate to contact Nouveau as we can help you in selecting the perfect list for your event. Note: We do accept specific song requests and we are only too happy to meet your needs where possible. We have packages that suit all needs, so please contact us to discuss. Should your church booking include an organist, there is an advantage in having both the organ and Nouveau Ensemble. Alternating between the two for prelude music is very effective. In addition, there are quite a few musical arrangements that we can play together during prelude, processional, Mass, and recessional, creating a beautiful large orchestral sound. Lastly, people are accustomed to singing the parts of the Mass with organ, so there might be more audience/congregation participation in singing if they are played by the organ/vocalist.
