Wedding Ceilidh Packages
Whether you’re Scottish to your core with a bloodline stretching back to William Wallace, or you're new to Scottish culture, when it comes to planning a party or wedding, nothing is more enjoyable than a Ceilidh. There really is no better way to get your guests talking and laughing together and ensure that everybody has an outrageously good time than getting everyone on their feet for a few Reels or a Gay Gordons.
We have a number of options available for your Wedding Entertainment.
Availability can be checked on our Google Ceilidh Calendar.
For small and medium sized venues or hotel function suites we have an ideal solution with a Duo. This has a full sound and is very effective for an intimate setting. We can 'Call' all the dances from the floor with a radio microphone so no ceilidh dancing experience is needed. Flexibility of dances for all ages is also an option with the occasional slower paced ballroom dances such as a Waltz, a Slow foxtrot, a Quickstep, a romantic song or ballad as well as driving sets of Reels and Jigs.
Visit the Duo ceilidh page.
One Man Ceilidh Band
For smaller venues and small crowds why not check out www.OneManCeilidhBand.co.uk
If you really want a blow out full monty Ceilidh night and have a stage and a budget that can handle it, we can suit anything you want to go for in terms of band size. Get in touch with an idea of what you are looking for and we can come up with a bespoke package to suit your needs.
'We love to make people happy!
If you want your function to be one people will talk about for years to come, book Iron Broo.'
Six Pieces Ceilidh Band
Performance Times: Our usual performance times we'd put on our contract for a wedding would be 8pm till midnight with a break during the evening buffet, during which time you may connect an iPod player if you have some special music you'd like played.
At some weddings with the best will in the world it is impossible to have the timings run correctly due to a number of reasons. Speeches can go on too long, meals take a long time to serve, guests are slow to move etc. If you have the band booked for an 8pm start and the meal runs over it can delay the start time for the band while a hotel still has to carry out a room turn around and the band may still have to set up the equipment. If this happens it doesn't mean that because the start time was an hour late the band can play an hour longer. It is not possible to do this because of the terms of the hotel license and nearby residents. It is also not fair on the band who might have been waiting for you to be ready for hours!
In most cases we'd recommend an afternoon set up if at all possible.
Often it is possible to set up the P.A. and lighting etc in the afternoon if there is space in the hotel. This saves a little time in the evening. (see our stage photos)
If you' d prefer all the gear set up in the afternoon please let us know as it does involve additional work and in some cases may involve some extra expense.
We are happy to offer our very popular Ceilidh Disco combination to any of our line ups. Please visit the Ceilidh Disco page for more information on how it works.
Ceremonial Music As an additional extra we can also provide you with tasteful background ceremonial music during the afternoon service or in the church. An accordion and Fiddle duo perhaps or a three piece with the Bouzouki. We can combine our line up to suit your tastes. Visit our Traditional Scottish Ceremonial Music page.
Tune Writing Service. We offer a Tune Writing Service. If you want to give your special someone a unique gift.
We can give you a hand written copy of the tune, and a professional recording if needed.
You could even have the tune played at your wedding. Contact Charlie to discuss requirements and prices.
P. S. Remember to visit our Clips Page to hear what we sound like Live.
If you don't like to fill in forms like the one here please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description of your requirements.
