Meet your dream French wedding band


I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your performance at my wedding on Saturday at Chateau la Durantie! You were absolutely brilliant and everyone has been commenting on how good the band were. The dance floor was packed all night which is exactly what I was hoping for. You were brilliant!
Thanks again

Add solo piano for the ceremony and cocktails

wedding pianist set list
Alex’s wedding pianist set list from 2018.

When you book SouthWest for the evening, you can add up to 90 minutes of solo piano for during the day. With a set list designed for the ceremony and cocktails.

Wedding ceremony music

Typically, Alex plays four times during the service:

  • Romantic music while guests arrive
  • Then something special for the wedding processional
  • A classical interlude for the signing of the register
  • And an upbeat love song for the wedding recessional

Music for cocktails

In the garden, over drinks, you and your guests are treated to an achingly beautiful selection of songs by Norah Jones, Ray Charles, Ed SheeranFreddie MercuryFrank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong. Plus film and TV themes, Elton John, Billy Joel, Lennon and McCartney, Seal, and more. For further details, visit Alex’s site.


SouthWest played at our wedding, and it was absolutely great. They are highly capable and talented musicians with a brilliant set. They were happy to tailor everything to our day and work with a couple of friends who we wanted to include on stage. We were only sad when it ended! During the day, Alex played piano for the bits where music mattered. It was very touching, very poignant – he is a great talent. Again, he included and worked with a couple of the guests, which added massively to the day.
