Q: Tell us a little bit about your wedding entertainment, how long you’ve been doing it and why you started.

I started playing the cello and piano when I was fourteen. I went on to study a BA Hons Degree Music and Music performance at Liverpool University. I then did my PGCE certificate so I could teach music at secondary schools. I have performed in the Liverpool Symphony orchestra, various quartets and I loved to sing whenever the opportunities arise.

 

I became a music teacher which I love as I enjoy helping others. Part of my teaching job is to be able to play anything, to be able to play a variety of instruments and perform on a regular basis.

I started performing at weddings for friends and I loved it. I am extremely passionate about my music and I love performing. Music is so vital to get right. It sets the mood, shows emotion and creates atmosphere.

 

I began performing wedding music as I love to perform. You always get a great buzz when you do a perfect performance. As I have lots of experience in playing anything through my teaching job I like to use this skill with weddings. I enjoy working closely with brides to make sure they have everything just right.

 

I offer my brides a service where I can play the piano, I can sing and play the piano and I can play the cello. This has proven to be a success as brides can choose for example to have piano and cello at their ceremony. Piano and singing during pre-dinner drinks. Piano during the wedding breakfast and wait for it!!!! Pianoke before the evening discos where guests can sing along to my piano playing.

 

Q: What inspires you when playing/ singing at someone’s Wedding?

My own wedding has helped to inspire me when I am playing/singing at someones wedding. From my own experience I know how important your big day is and that it is vital that I do my very best for each of my brides.

 

One of the pieces I love to perform is a song called ‘Songbird’. I walked down the aisle to this piece on my wedding day. I love to sing this piece as I love to bring the lyrics alive and show the emotion through my voice. The words in this piece are so personal to me which is why I love performing it.

 

 

Q: What should Brides to Be thinking about when it comes to entertainment for their Wedding?

Music is so personal and a song can hold so much emotion. Choose your special piece together with your Husband to Be so that particular song/piece will have wonderful memories for both of you, which you will reflect on everytime you hear that piece in your married life.

 

Music creates atmosphere and mood. Think about what mood you want to create. The piano playing a variety of styles of music to suit all different ages sounds lovely whilst people are talking and eating. If you want something a bit louder singing and piano is great whilst people are moving in and out of the venue to have photographs.

Q: What can Brides expect from Georgina Heydon when they come to her for Wedding Day Entertainment?

All my brides know I am extremely passionate about music and that I care. I want to do my very best for each of my brides. I will always perform song requests and I also like for my brides to hear their special piece before their big day. I work closely with my brides to ensure everything is perfect. I offer a service where I can bring my piano with me if there isn’t one at the venue. Every wedding is unique and every brides needs are different. I ensure I listen to all my brides and I ensure I do my very best to help make their day special.

 

Q: What’s your favourite song/ type of music to play at Weddings and why?

I love playing all my instruments and I really can’t choose. The cello is such a romantic instrument. I love playing the piano as I enjoy playing in different styles of music. When I sing I feel so much emotion and passion. I love performing all music and I am so lucky to be able to teach and perform music for a living. It’s such a fun job.

Q: What’s your biggest achievement to date? (Doesn’t have to be wedding related)

My best achievement to date are my two beautiful children. Family means everything to me. My daughter is six and she is musical. I am teaching her the cello at the moment but she keeps telling me when she grows up she is going to be a professional singer like me. She has however pointed out that she will be doing all the singing as I can do the piano lol. My son wants to write video games!
