Music for your wedding
Our organist, Geoffrey Heath, is an accomplished musician and organist and has a wealth of experience in playing for weddings.
Message from Geoffrey:
“If you are considering getting married in Quainton Church please contact me at an early stage to discuss your choice of music. There is an increasing tendency these days to have recorded music for part or all of the service but in my view having music which is performed live on the spot just for you is infinitely better than a CD however good the performances on disc. I have over sixty years experience of playing the organ for weddings so am well placed to advise as to choice of music. You do not have to have the Wedding March or Pachelbel’s Canon – there are many other options available. Also please let us know in advance if you are planning to ask someone to sing or play during the service. If you want help finding a singer, trumpeter or any other instrumentalist I can probably assist. I would strongly advise having the church choir if they are available. Wedding congregations are often not familiar with hymns and having the choir to lead the singing will give a real lift to the service.”
