As well as playing for services in church, Michael can bring along his digital piano, organ or keyboards to provide you the very best music for your Civil Ceremony. Have a look at the Civil Ceremony page for some non-religious music suggestions.


The Sussex Wedding Organist, Michael Wooldridge, is the person to

contact for the finest music throughout your special day. 

Regularly heard playing on BBC Radio 2, including to five-million

listeners on Steve Wright in the Afternoon, Sussex based musician

Michael has performed his way around the world on pipe organs,

pianos and electronic keyboards.

Michael has been privileged to play at hundreds of weddings.  It is always a joy for him to make your day that bit extra special by playing the very finest music for you.  With his huge repertoire, as well as the standard wedding pieces that you may expect, Michael is also very happy to include music that is special to you.  Perhaps one of the most unusual processionals he has been asked to play so far was the theme to Star Trek, The Next Generation! Michael plays for weddings big and small.  Amongst his more lavish engagements have been be playing for music mogul Simon Cowell’s brother’s ceremony, and at services where guests have included Sir Paul McCartney and Sinnitta.  He puts just the same amount of enthusiasm into playing for small family services in the tiniest of parish churches and for Civil Ceremonies.  For Michael, it is always about using the magic of his music to make the happy couple’s day as special as is possible. Have a look around the site to get some ideas and then contact Michael to check his availability and put the finishing touches to your music choices.
