Trending Wedding Musicians & Entertainers for 2023

Our dedicated team are always on the lookout for the next biggest trend in the wedding industry. Of course, this includes searching for the very best wedding musicians, such as talented singers, charming acoustic acts and upbeat wedding bands.

Each year, we pick out the hottest new acts to join our exclusive roster. From wedding bands and gypsy jazz bands, to acoustic duos and string quartets, the diverse range of party entertainment on offer has never been more exciting. Check out our top picks below.

Monique - Singer

Let's kick off with an extraordinary talent that has been described by Will.I.am as "a cross between Lauryn Hill and Rihanna". With solid guitar skills and a truly inimitable voice, we recommend snapping Monique up for your wedding now.

Olympia Ensemble

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more professional, authentic string quartet in the South East as Olympia Ensemble. With a repertoire that spans classical, pop (and, of course, all of the covers heard on Bridgerton), this all-female string ensemble is a perfect fit for any wedding service.

Belleville Quartet

With a healthy dose of Parisian-inspired flavour in their music, Belleville Quartet’s accordion, bass and guitar-led repertoire instantly transport you to the warmer climates in your mind. A perfect match when looking for background music for an afternoon drinks party or evening soirée, this East Midlands gypsy jazz-based act can also offer solo accordion sets, perfect for drinks receptions.

Passengers - Party Duo

Sound restrictions are becoming ubiquitous across the U.K., and we've noticed a trend in party duos is definitely on the rise! Passengers are perfect for when you want the sound of a live band but are limited by space or sound limitations. Utilising professional backing tracks, the duo’s sound can fill a small to medium venue with ease, and with a repertoire full of modern chart hits as well as classics, Passengers are the perfect option for an event where performance space is limited.

TIPTrends come and go, but others never die out, and a Great Gatsby-themed wedding is a prime example! An iconic era for music and glamour, you can find helpful tips on planning a fabulous 1920s wedding here.

Halcyon

Exceptionally talented, and now with a much bigger line-up on offer, Halcyon are one of the hottest bands to book for your wedding! Take a look at their newest promotional video below, and you'll understand why we're so hyped; the musicianship, choreography, and vocal deliveries - we could go on, but it's probably better to let it speak for itself.

Café del Sax

DJs accompanied by live musicians are soaring in popularity, and in particular, the saxophone is the crème de la crème! Conjuring up memories of Ibizia club holidays and the setting sunsets abroad, the sax and DJ combo Café del Sax offer is the perfect remedy for nostalgia (and getting guests up on their feet dancing!).

Clementine

Ed Sheeran showed the world what can be achieved with the loop pedal, and now it's a firm favourite for solo guitarists looking to add a bit of texture and beef up their sound. Clementine's use of percussive and vocal layerings to create harmonies is beyond impressive, but her vocals are the real star of the show - just take a look for yourself!

In need of Inspiration?

Trends are forever in a state of flux, so don't ever worry if you feel like you're not 'on trend' for your wedding. You'll want your guests to embrace all parts of your personalities and tastes, so being happy with your decisions and choices is priority.

However, if you're scratching your head and struggling for ideas, why not consider a Vintage Wedding, 1950s Wedding or even a Festival Wedding.
