The brilliance of a trumpet fanfare offers a majestic contrast to the splendour of the harp.  Fanfares can be used to announce the arrival of the bride at the start of the service or the departure of the married couple at the end.  

There are many magnificent pieces that can be performed with or without organ accompaniment to provide a majestic alternative to the more traditional bridal and wedding marches.  

The clips on this page have recordings of the first few bars of some of the best known trumpet marches.  In these recordings I am playing a modern trumpet in D, but I can also play on a modern B flat or a baroque trumpet depending on your choice and the size of the venue.
