Bristol Bach Choir, one of the South West’s leading chamber choirs, is able to provide a smaller group for weddings as well as for other special events such as birthdays and anniversaries. Recent engagements include weddings in Bristol, Gloucestershire and Somerset; carol singing at John Lewis, Cribbs Causeway as well as several company offices in the Temple Quay area.
Our wedding choirs consist of around 12 – 16 singers who can be guaranteed to provide a high-quality musical backdrop for your big day. We will bring your ceremony to musical life!
We generally sing three hymns (selected by the couple) plus an anthem or one or two songs during the signing of the register. Our Bristol Bach Singers coordinator, Basile Vigneron, will always discuss arrangements with you at an early stage and offer suggestions about the anthem. The choice of music may depend on the organist engaged for the service.
The price for this ‘standard’ wedding package is in the region of £400 and is negotiable depending on the amount and complexity of the music required. The hiring fee goes to help the choir’s scholarship scheme as well as our regular programme of concerts, which includes performing alongside brilliant young artists. Individual members of Bristol Bach Singers give their time freely and are not paid.
