LBE Wedding Trumpeters
Popular music choices
 

We can offer all well known traditional trumpet tunes along with some more modern options. We are always happy to consider special requests that are not listed on our website.

The lists below shows the typical points in your ceremony that your trumpeter could play, along with some suggested music. The ‘sections’ we have listed the music under are merely our suggestions and can be swapped around to suit your preference, for example much of the processional music is also suitable for the recessional.

We would advise that you do not ask your Trumpeter to play at every possible opportunity, as this is your wedding day not a trumpet concert, sometimes less can be more!

Arrival of the bride

Trumpet Fanfare - see our Fanfare Trumpeters page. Please note that trumpet fanfares are much more effective with 2 or more trumpeters.
