How do I know if I need a sound system for my wedding ceremony? If you’re getting married outdoors, if your guest list is over 50, and if you have special music planned to play during your ceremony .. then, yes you need a sound system!
We have all been to a wedding ceremony where the bride looks a picture and the setting is beautiful but we can’t hear a thing that is said. Or worse still, there is squealing or feedback from the microphone that is being used – everyone jumps a mile or covers their ears, waiting for the next bout! You may be surprised to know that it won’t break the bank to have a simple sound system that can be either DIY or professionally operated to ensure all of the ceremony can be heard by all of your guests, and any special songs or music can be played at the right times in your ceremony – and no nasty feedback!
Here are two options you can consider. If your budget is limited, or you have a small intimate ceremony planned, then our celebrant or do-it-yourself sound system may be all you need. With a light-weight speaker which can be either battery-operated or mains power, and your choice of either skin-tone headset microphone or hand-held wireless microphone, this system can be easily set up and operated by one of the bridal party or your celebrant. It comes with an iPod connection so you can also play your special songs. A delivery and pick up service from your ceremony location is included in the price.
If you are planning a larger ceremony – say upwards of 50 guests – or there may be some background noise at your ceremony venue making it hard to hear, then our larger fully-operated system is the perfect option. Our operator sets up the speakers in the best location so that your vows and special songs can be heard by all, and will look after the placement and operation of microphones for you and your celebrant, and also for any readings. We will also play ambient music before and after your ceremony for the enjoyment of your guests.
