Greek wedding ceremony music
1) Elegant string quartet
Every Greek wedding needs elegant musical entertainment to accompany the ceremony. Classic music from an all-female string quartet can perform epic instrumentals that will provide a magical soundtrack for your wedding ceremony. Whether you opt for contemporary music or classical, their gorgeous musical performances are truly breath taking – there definitely won’t be a dry eye in the room with this music in the background.
2) Pianist and singer
If a string quartet isn’t to your musical tastes, this Greece-based female pianist can provide instrumental jazz piano or traditional Greek songs accompanied by vocals in English, Greek and Russian. Hauntingly beautiful, her musical performances will create a gorgeous ambiance at your Greek wedding ceremony.
Fun reception ideas and a warm Greek welcome for guests
After the wedding ceremony the celebrations really begin! You’ve accomplished the most nerve-wracking part and can now relax and join your friends and family to celebrate!
3) Greek Gods and Goddesses
Welcome guests to your wedding reception venue with a range of Greek style entertainment to perfectly compliment your destination wedding. Why not invite some Greek Gods and Goddesses to the party – they add a fun aesthetic, are a great opportunity for photos with guests and can also hand out drinks and favours as guests arrive.
Eros, one of the winged Gods of love and Aphrodite the goddess of love, beauty and pleasure can create a romantic atmosphere as guests arrive. Dressed in true Grecian attire, bow and arrow for Eros and flowing Grecian gown for Aphrodite, have them hand out ornamental scented white clay hearts in keeping with the occasion. You could have an appearance from Artemis, the Goddess of wilderness and childbirth and Ares, the God of war to bring a bit of passion to the occasion. Of course they both boast impressive Grecian costumes as well.
4) Greek drummers
To perform alongside these Greek Gods and Goddesses or stand alone, hire traditional Greek drummers to create an electric atmosphere of excitement and frivolity. Performing at the entrance of the wedding reception venue, guests will be able to hear them as they approach. They also add an impressive visual quality to your event entrance – they could even line the road or pathway leading up to your venue. These traditional Greek drummers can turn up the energy to create a high-impact soundtrack for the bride and groom to entrance to when they arrive.
5) Bouzouki players
Greek bouzouki players can then provide the background music for your wedding breakfast. They create a relaxed and authentic Greek atmosphere – the perfect setting for enjoying a beautifully catered meal with friends and family. This Greek folk music instrument has a uniquely enchanting sound that will fit perfectly with your Greek wedding.
The evening party Greek-style
A dynamic live performance from a Greek wedding band is a must for your evening wedding reception and destination wedding in Greece!
6) Athens party band
One of our favourite local bands is a party band from Athens who appeared on X Factor Greece and has performed with stars such as Anna Vissi, Antonis Remos and Enrique Iglesias. They have incredible charisma, which really draws guests onto the dance floor and keeps them there until their feet start to hurt! Of course their extensive repertoire of party classics and top 40 hits are also a huge hit with guests. Able to tailor their performance to suit each couple’s individual musical tastes, this Greek party band will definitely get the party started at your evening wedding reception.
7) Latin, jazz and funk band
For a band with a more alternative style our Multi-Genre Function Band based in Greece specialise in soul, jazz, funk, Latin and blues and perform both Greek and English songs. Performing distinctive renditions of hits from Caro Emerald, Stevie Wonder and Manolis Chiotis, they have a sophisticated feel that is perfect if you’d rather steer clear of top 40 hits and classic party bands.
8) Greek wedding DJ and fireworks supplier
For later in the evening the Greek Wedding and Party DJ will keep the party going despite the band having finished. A multi-award winning entertainer and a favourite with many of our wedding couples who get married in Greece, he can create custom set lists and combine these with impressive visual extras. Forget the standard disco light show, our DJ can provide professional lighting to match the music and a spectacular fireworks display to end the evening with.
