Personalised & Unique Music for your Wedding Ceremony in Jersey CI UK
Bossa Basseline will transform your Wedding Ceremony in Jersey CI UK with the perfect combination of high-quality live music & bespoke repertoire, to reflect your tastes and uniqueness as Bride & Groom.
Our musicians have outstanding experience of performing for Civil & Church Wedding Ceremonies, Independent Wedding Ceremonies, Partnerships, Vow Renewals and ceremonies which include Baby Namings.
We will communicate with your Registrar, Celebrant or Priest/Reverend as necessary: having performed at hundreds of wedding ceremonies, our experience and knowledge ensures that our music keeps proceedings running smoothly.
We are hugely experienced in performing at Jersey's unique Wedding Venues, including Jersey Heritage & National Trust for Jersey sites: we also work with Wedding Planners and Hotel/Marquee Wedding Co-ordinators to ensure that every detail of your Ceremony is planned.
You can personalise every aspect of your Wedding Ceremony music with Bossa Basseline: we will provide you with our huge repertoire list to choose from, and we can create a custom arrangement of your favourite tune for your entrance, register signing or recessional as Husband and Wife.
Bossa Basseline can suggest the perfect band for your Wedding Ceremony: our Bossa Basseline Duo and Solo Guitarist are perfect for more intimate ceremonies, while our Jazz Trio, Latin Trio or Jazz Quartet will create the right impact for larger gatherings. If you are having a Church Wedding Ceremony, our guitarist can also play the hymns for you on the church organ.
If your Ceremony and Drinks Reception are at the same venue, we can play for both! We can re-locate swiftly to perform outdoors or in another part of the venue and we can also add additional musicians to create our Trio or Quartet bands for the perfect upbeat mood as your guests enjoy mingling.

Our Wedding Ceremony Services include:
Pre-Ceremony Music: 10 - 15 minutes of live music to create an elegant and intimate atmosphere as your guests arrive and take their seats.
The Bride's Entrance Music/Processional: our music will announce your entrance and accompany your walk up the aisle. Try to choose a tune which is instantly recognisable, as it may not be performed in its entirety depending on the length of the aisle. Once the Bride has reached the top of the aisle and the bridal party have settled down, we bring the music to an end.
The Signing of the Register Music: we will keep guests entertained while the Bride and Groom and witnesses sign the register. It's best to choose at least 5 tunes from our extensive repertoire list: this part of the ceremony lasts at least 8 minutes and possibly longer for photographs. At the end of the register signing, we again bring the music to a gentle close.
The Bride & Groom's Recessional Music: we perform a tune of your choice as you walk along the aisle as Husband & Wife for the first time! Once you've exited, we usually continue to perform this tune until all of your guests have left the room to move on to the Drinks Reception.
Civil Ceremony Music Choices: please be aware that religious music or music having connotations to any faith cannot be performed at Civil Wedding Ceremonies. However, music of any religion can be played at an Independent Civil Ceremony, as performed by David Lister, Registered Celebrant.
'The Girl from Ipanema' to 'To Make You Feel My Love'...
YOU call the tunes!

'Thank you so much for performing at our Ceremony & Drinks and making it go so smoothly. So many of our guests have said how lovely it was to have live music and they enjoyed what you played; one friend said the sax playing was 'the nearest thing I've heard to audio velvet'! We will certainly have no hesitation in recommending you to others.'
