Booking Live Music for a Destination Wedding

When booking live entertainment and music for a destination wedding, it’s not always possible to go with local suppliers, unless your planner has the right network. If you’re planning a luxury wedding, like the wedding featured in the photos here that we provided a drummer DJ, sax player and soul singer for. This was in Jamaica in Trident Castle and the couple went for an international theme with the music, which they hired from a few different countries. Julia and Mike are American and had a top New York DJ, a Kirtan band and a finalist from American Idol…as well as the British element in what we supplied to them. They had a large budget and were therefore able to fly in the different live music elements to come and perform on the big day.

Once you start booking live musicians for a destination wedding, they will charge their fee and ask for expenses to be covered. This means travel, accommodation and all meals. Obviously this is an extra expense, but if you’ve aimed for a beautiful location, then why not add some beautiful music? If using local musicians, there can be language and cultural barriers and not much security in knowing how professional a group is. Unless of course you have a wedding planner locally who helps sort all this out. But then your options may be limited since they will usually recommend the same small number of local suppliers. Whereas if like the above wedding you wish to really personalise your wedding music, then choose acts that you find yourself . Looking online can help you find the perfect act to add to your destination wedding mix. If the budget is available, the difference live music and top international DJs can make to the day is beyond measure. Booking music for a destination wedding should be a simple process that can easily be sorted out.

We have flown in string quartets, singing waiters and jazz bands to Italy, Switzerland and Oman as well as lots of other acts for stunning weddings in Europe and beyond. All it takes is a little imagination and working with artists who are used to working internationally.

If you’re planning an international wedding and would like us to work with you, call us for an informal discussion of your requirements and we will be delighted to help with any advice and bookings.
