Joanne and Mark
Branksome Dene Rooms, Bournemouth, Dorset
23 August 2021
The Wedding of Joanne and Mark took us to the beach in Bournemouth and specifically the Branksome Dene Room on the seafront. Arriving early, we were able to get a parking space near to the venue and took a short walk into town to get a spot of breakfast before setting up for the Wedding Ceremony.
Music for the Wedding Ceremony
Cello and Piano is a lovely blend for your wedding ceremony and our diverse range of classical and popular covers mean there is something for every bride as she walks down the aisle.
On this occasion as well as music for the entrance of the bride, we were also asked to play for the entrance of the groom!
Joanne and Mark had opted for a Humanist Ceremony.
The word “humanist” has come to mean someone who trusts to the scientific method when it comes to understanding how the universe works and rejects the idea of the supernatural (and is therefore an atheist or agnostic) makes their ethical decisions based on reason, empathy, and a concern for human beings and other sentient animals believes that, in the absence of an afterlife and any discernible purpose to the universe, human beings can act to give their own lives meaning by seeking happiness in this life and helping others to do the same.
The ceremony was lovely, albeit the weather wasn’t a typical hot summer day it was still very pleasant with the backdrop of the sea behind the bride and groom.
Wedding Drinks Reception
After the ceremony there was a short drinks reception again outside. For this we had to amplify the Cello slightly to ensure the sound would carry across the patio area.
Wedding Breakfast / Afternoon Tea
Our final involvement with Joanne and Mark’s wedding was to play for their wedding breakfast. Rather splendidly this was in fact an afternoon tea!
