Generally, a civil wedding ceremony lasts up to one hour, but for a religious wedding service, it is recommended to book for 1.5 hours. Ideally the musicians begin performing on guests' arrival, approximately 15 minutes before the bride's entry. The bride and groom may like to suggest a specific song to be played for the processional, which may be an arrangement of a couple's sepcial song, or a well-known classic such as Pachelbel's Canon.
The next song selection will be for the signing of the register. This can be one or two pieces, as photographs may be taken at this time. This is commonly a reflective piece of music such as Bach's "Air On The G String".
Finally, a generally upbeat song, such as Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" will be performed for the recessional to mark the conclusion of the ceremony. At this point, the newly married couple will walk down the aisle to be congratulated by family and guests.
