How do I select the appropriate music for my wedding ceremony?
After you have booked Classique Music we provide you with personal consultation and assistance until you are completely satisfied with your choices.

Refer to our audio sample page (access via home page) to get ideas, and use that as starting point for us to work with you in finding the perfect selections.
