We are having a very small (55) family wedding at Packford Hotel Woodford.
We are having background music throughout but thought how lovely it would be to have Christmas carols while we are having cheese and biscuits and then coffee.
The wedding will be held Newnham College, and we would hope to have music as the guests enter the ceremony room. The ceremony starts at 1.00. It should take half an hour. If the weather is nice, we hope the music will continue on the lawns while guests have canapés, etc.and the photos are taken. If it should rain, we have a room inside! We would like the music to play until 2.30.. 0
There can be no amplification..
