Craig Smith Music: Music wedding packages in Lancashire

Craig Smith Music offers affordable function entertainment and music wedding packages in Lancashire and the North West from £140 as a solo wedding pianist (and even less if using a piano already at the venue!), with various duos also available.

2018 Wedding Packages & Prices

The focus on 2018 pricing is "shopping local", with huge savings for Craig's most local venues, and prices starting from as little as £140 for drinks receptions, £200 for wedding breakfast piano and £220 for civil ceremony music, all including piano and PA provision.

For venues with pianos for Craig to play already on site, there is a discount of £60 on any package or combination of packages, due to the reduced time for setting set up and the savings on fuel for transporting heavy equipment.

Prices are based on travel time to each venue. Please see the table below for examples of prices for popular venues and locations. You can check the travel time to your venue from PR2 3UY on Google Maps.

Ceremony prices include entertainment for guests taking their seats in ceremony room and then awaiting the entrance; entrance music, 2 x signing of the register songs and exit music (all entirely your choice); and time to learn any music that requires it. Wedding breakfast music is for the duration of the meal, culminating roughly as coffee / bubbly is served.

Please note that there is the possibility of a small add-on for parking charges and extra time required due to off-site parking at city centre venues such as some in Liverpool and Manchester. Other than these, the prices below are all-in, inclusive of travel, any necessary equipment, insurance etc.
