Handbells are popular at weddings, particularly if it is a church ceremony and there are no tower bells available or perhaps at a civil venue.
A handbell team may be able to provide the sound of bells pealing as the bride and groom come out of the church. Alternatively a group may play during the signing of the register, or for the entrance or exit of the bridal party or even give a performance at the reception.
Fees and expenses are negotiated with the team concerned.
You are advised to make arrangements well in advance - teams can get very booked up and it is often difficult to get enough ringers together.
