String Quartets

Hiring a String Quartet is a lovely addition to any wedding drinks reception, or wedding breakfast.  Consisting of a group of musicians (2 violinists, 1 cellist and a viola player), the sound they produce is simply magical!  A String Quartet will be able to perform classical background music which offers a sophisticated ambiance, or instrumental versions of modern hits.  Perhaps you would like a mix of the two?  Each String Quartet will have their own repertoire of music that they can perform, however if you have a special request, many will be able to accommodate for an additional fee.


Another fun idea for wedding reception entertainment is to hire a Caricaturist.  Perfect for during your wedding breakfast, a Caricaturist will sketch your guests one-by-one in a very funny way, presenting their drawings to your guests to take away with them as a little memento of your wedding day.  A Caricaturist can either work around your venue, from table to table or for something a little less obtrusive, you can have them situated in one location.

Close-Up Magicians

Interactive entertainment is always a winner during wedding receptions, and a Close-Up Magician ticks all the right boxes!  Close-Up Magicians are very versatile and will work during wedding drinks receptions, wedding breakfasts and evening receptions too!  They will happily work their way around groups of guests, getting them involved in performing illusions and sleight-of-hand tricks with small objects such as coins, bank notes and playing cards.  This type of performance will certainly get your guests talking among themselves!

Wedding Bands

If you are looking for wedding evening reception entertainment and would like music for your guests to dance to, look no further than a Wedding Band!  Although hiring this type of entertainment can cost a little more than other types of evening entertainment, their fun and exciting performance is well worth that extra budget!  Wedding Bands will perform a number of popular hits, from many eras and will offer a fabulous ambiance for your first dance!

Female Singers

Choosing a Female Singer for your wedding reception is another versatile type of entertainment.  Perfect for during any part of your wedding day and evening, Female Singers give you greater flexibility when it comes to their vocals since each one listed with us has their own sound and repertoire.  Hiring a Female Singer will give you the ability to mingle with your guests during their performance, and if you fancy a boogie, that’s possible too!

Male Singers

Along with Female Singers, we also have our very own dedicated category for Male Singers too!  There is a huge variety in the type of performance you get with a Male Singer, from crooner style 1960’s tunes to more modern offerings.  A Male Singer will create the perfect atmosphere for your wedding reception and will also make announcements such as your first dance.  Able to perform for a couple of hours, with breaks in-between, a Male Singer could be the perfect choice for your wedding reception entertainment.

Tribute Acts

If you as a couple both love a specific artist, have you considered hiring a Tribute Act?  Tribute Acts not only try to sound like the authentic singer, but will attempt to look like them too!  We have many Tribute Acts on offer on our entertainment directory, ranging from classic crooners, such as Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin to more modern artists like Katy Perry!  No matter what type of Tribute Act you choose, you will be guaranteed an evening of entertainment and fun!

Aerialists and Acrobats

Looking for something a little more unusual for your wedding reception?  Why not book Aerialists or Acrobats to perform during the rest of your celebrations?  An Aerialist performs a mix of acrobatics and gymnastics while high up in the air (always check that your wedding venue will allow this type of performance) whereas an Acrobat usually keeps their feet nearer the ground!  Both types of variety act are very dramatic and can add a completely unique element to your wedding reception.

Fire Performers

Continue your wedding celebrations right until the end of the night with the help of Fire Performers!  A fantastic choice of entertainment for when the sun sets, Fire Performers will offer many types of stunts using fire batons and hoops.  From fire eating and juggling to dance, Fire Performers are very experienced and trained in their skills and will finish your wedding day in style!
