Title: 2014 Wedding in Bristol - Need musicians
Post by: Spotsknight on August 29, 2013, 03:46:36 PM
I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this or not, but I think it has the best chance of finding the people I'm looking for. I picked up a few cards and emailed a couple performers but still haven't found everything we need.

I'm looking for some traditional Celtic music as entertainment as guests gather and wait for the ceremony to begin (approx 30-40 minutes). This would include something to accompany the Bride walking down the 'aisle' (just not 'Here comes the bride').

Then after the ceremony (while the photos are being taken and the food is setup and served) we will need to fill between a minimum of 1.5 hours and potentially up to 3 hours. I realize that one group would most likely have a hard time getting that much available time in a day at the faire, so we are looking for 2-4 groups that can switch off at set times (that way you can still make your other sets). For this we would welcome a variety of traditional and fun ren faire songs/music.

All songs MUST be family friendly as there will be kids as well as adults present.

My thanks to everyone for reading this and my apologies if this is not the correct forum to place this thread. Feel free to message me if you are interested and planning to be in Bristol next year. I'm also open to any and all suggestions other forum members might have.

Also I know this is very far in advance but our goal is to have this wedding without incurring any debt so we are planning as far in advance and continually saving so that as deposits are needed and final payments made we have the money ready. so that means finding out exact costs as early as possible.

Are you not doing a wedding package with the faire?

The faire doesn't have a 'package' that includes entertainers. They offer the location and catering be the rest I need to coordinate or setup myself.

I just found out today, they are required to be at the front gate for the opening and would not be available until 11:00 am at the earliest so if we start the ceremony a little late we can have some one there so there is music for the brides march, but not really any 'pre-wedding' music.  :(
