Hello my lovelies, spring has well and truly sprung, the sun is high in the sky, and the season of love (the season of weddings) is upon us! I know this because more and more of my summer bookings are to play sax at wedding receptions.
Often when people contact me to book a wedding sax player, they ask about hidden costs, extra fees and other things that might bump up the price they pay for my wedding sax services on the day.
In fact, as far as possible, I prefer to quote a fixed price upfront so you know what you’re getting and how much it will cost.
Why? Well as an experienced wedding saxophonist, I know how important it is to bring your big day in on budget. I don’t want to complicate your day – I just want to make it one to remember! – which is why I’m proud to provide all-inclusive wedding entertainment that takes into account everything you need.
What does a wedding saxophonist cost?
Now that’s the big question! Unfortunately asking how much a wedding saxophonist costs is a bit like asking how much a wedding itself costs – it really depends on what you need.
As standard I suggest 90 minutes of actual sax playing, spread over three hours in total, but this can vary depending on what time of day your ceremony takes place, and whether you want me to play at the drinks reception, wedding breakfast and/or evening reception.
There are other details too, such as where the ceremony will occur – I don’t just travel all over the UK, I also often play sax at weddings in Ibiza, plus bookings elsewhere in Europe and around the world!
Finally, do you want me to play solo, or do you want other accompaniment? I work with DJs, percussionists and violinists, among other musicians, so if you have something specific in mind and want me to put a band together, I can do that for the right price too.
All you need to do is let me know the details, and I’ll quote you a price for my wedding sax services taking everything into account upfront.
You can fill in my enquiry form on my website, email firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call on 07740 192973 for a chat. Unless I’m off somewhere playing sax, I’ll be happy to talk you through your options!
