Weddings & Special Events
Your Special Day
A magical start to your ceremony. Herald your bridal procession with the flourishing sound of trumpets.
Seraphim Trumpets are specialists in civil and church ceremonies. We have played in castles, stately homes and cathedrals throughout the country and abroad, as well as at smaller licensed venues, registry offices and village churches. We can perform music for the procession of the bride, the recessional, musical interludes, the signing of the register as well as enhancing the grandeur of your hymns with our specially written trumpet descants. The majestic sound of regal fanfares and voluntaries capture that unique atmosphere on your special day.
We can offer help and advice on selecting suitable music for your ceremony. Our bespoke service enables you to choose when in the service you would like the trumpet(s) to play. More unusual repertoire or a favourite tune can be accommodated by special arrangement. We are able to supply a CD of some of the more popular wedding repertoire, performed by us, with our own special musical arrangements for trumpets and organ. There are some samples from the CD below. Seraphim Trumpets normally perform as a group of three trumpeters, but also offer solo trumpet, two trumpets and larger ensembles where required. For church weddings we will usually be accompanied by an organist. This can be a competent local organist, a friend, or we can help organise a professional player for you. It is recommended that three trumpets be used for civil weddings where an organ is not present.
