The Best Entertainment Ideas For Your Christmas Wedding

Last Updated: 16th November 2021

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and it becomes even more exciting when your wedding is happening during Christmastime! If you’re planning your fantasy festive wedding and are looking for entertainment ideas to surprise and amaze your guests, then you’ve come to the right place. With every type of act, from carol singers to folk bands and pianists to jazz ensembles, you’re sure to find your dream wedding musicians here!

So without further ado, let’s have a look at the key parts of your wedding day, and discover acts and ideas that will fill your guests with festive cheer.

The Arrival Of Your Guests

This part of a wedding can often become an afterthought, because it all happens before the bride arrives! Never fear though, there are so many creative ways that you can bring some Christmas magic to your special day from the second your guests arrive.

Why not consider booking an act that will greet your guests with a few festive tunes? Perhaps you’d like an acoustic singer-guitarist, a pianist or a violinist? Here are two of our favourite acts, both with incredible festive sets to welcome your guests with some holiday spirit.


With warm harmonies and their own glamorous take on Christmas classics, The Winter Wonders are a treat for the ears! Your guests will be thrilled with this trio’s fun and festive peformance.


Set the scene with Michael Godley, a sensational classical guitarist with an expansive Christmas repertoire. He could also create the perfect backdrop to the next part of your day…

Your Wedding Ceremony

For the most important part of your wedding day, having live musicians perform will add the intimacy and emotion that you and your partner deserve as you tie the knot. A traditional string quartet will bring grace and refinement to your ceremony, a harpist will add a touch of elegance or a pianist will bring class and sophistication. Whatever you choose, there won’t be a dry eye in the house!


With beautiful warm tones and stirring harmonies, Sky String quartet will provide an elegant accompaniment to your wedding ceremony with their traditional pieces as well as dazzling reworking of modern favourites.


Let the heavenly sounds of Tidal Harp wash over you. Her stunning Christmas repertoire comprises traditional and modern Christmas songs as you’ve never heard them before.

Or if you want to make a statement with exuberance and joy as you walk down the aisle, why not choose a stunning gospel choir? Even with 4 singers as standard, these incredible choirs can fill even the largest of venues with uplifting music and captivating harmonies.


Available as a 4-piece up to a full 15-piece choir, and with the option to add a string quartet, Genesis of Voice are the ultimate in wedding ceremony entertainment!

Your Drinks Reception

Whether your guests are enjoying mulled wine, Champagne or a warming hot chocolate, a little live entertainment is the perfect accompaniment as they chat and mingle. A solo or duo act is ideal for this part of your day. Whether you’re looking for a vintage act, an acoustic guitar duo, saxophonist or a jazz singer to entertain everyone, you’ll find an act to wow the crowd.


Take your guests back in time to the 30s, 40s and 50s with this glamorous performer with an exceptional voice and authentic attire. Her Christmas set will add a vibrant and swanky feel to your drinks reception!


Sergio Ivory’s sophisticated style is a beautiful addition to any drinks reception. This world-class musician will deliver an awe-inspiring performance, whether he’s playing jazz, pop or classical music. Or ask him to play Christmas music for extra festive sparkle.


Go all out with the festive fun and hire Deck the Horns! This roaming brass band will weave in and out of the crowd and encourage guest participation, bringing Christmas cheer to all.


It’s not Christmas without a bit of Bublรฉ, so why not not hire a tribute to the Christmas crooner himself? With smooth vocals and charm in abundance, it will definitely begin to look a lot like Christmas!

Your Wedding Breakfast

Of course, any of the types of act mentioned previously would also be perfect for your wedding breakfast. During this time your guests are going to want to be able to sit and chat while they eat, so you don’t need anything intrusive. How about these acts?


Night and Day are a superb guitar and saxophone duo who’ll effortlessly create a chic and sophisticated ambience for your wedding breakfast. They’ll learn 3 special requests so you can sneak some Christmas tunes into their set and even add a singer if you want!


Get that lounge-piano vibe with the addition of a very cool double bass for a debonair and classy backdrop to your wedding breakfast with the brilliant Georgian Sunrise!

Alternatively, why not hire singing waiters, who will spontaneously break into song to completely surprise your guests as they are served?

They started with our first dance and the dance floor did not let up all evening. They were absolutely incredible! The set list was immaculate, wall to wall hits, and we never saw the dance floor even remotely empty. The guys were so energetic, their unique sound and presence made each hit feel like a new version of the song. They completely made our wedding day and were easily one of the most memorable / worthwhile additions we included. Absolutely and entirely recommend these guys." - Cazz and JoshDiscover Orbitar here ๐Ÿ‘‰ ... See MoreSee Less
