Wedding Ceilidh Packages
Whether you’re Scottish to your core with a bloodline stretching back to William Wallace, or you’re new to Scottish culture, when it comes to planning a party or wedding, nothing is more enjoyable than a Ceilidh. There really is no better way to get your guests talking and laughing together and ensure that everybody has an outrageously good time than getting everyone on their feet for a few Reels or a Gay Gordons.

For small and medium sized venues or hotel function suites we have an ideal solution with a Duo. This has a full sound and is very effective for an intimate setting. We can ‘Call’ all the dances from the floor with a radio microphone so no ceilidh dancing experience is needed. Flexibility of dances for all ages is also an option with the occasional slower paced ballroom dances such as a Waltz, a Slow foxtrot, a Quickstep, a romantic song or ballad as well as driving sets of Reels and Jigs.
Visit the Duo ceilidh page.
One Man Ceilidh Band
For smaller venues and more intimate gatherings, we can offer a one-man ceilidh band!
It can be combined with a disco or just ceilidh and the odd folk song. Great for difficult to reach places and smaller budgets. Includes Dance Calling.
3 Piece Ceilidh Band
3 piece CeilidhFor average sized venues such as Hotel function suites and village halls, we provide a Three piece band. Calling all the dances from the floor with a Radio Microphone and doing all the usual Ceilidh dances and some lesser known ones.
4+ Piece Ceilidh Band
For larger venues and bigger crowds of 100 plus we recommend our four pieces. Which does all of the above with a bigger sound.
If you really want a blow out full monty Ceilidh night and have a stage and a budget that can handle it, we can suit anything you want to go for in terms of band size. Get in touch with an idea of what you are looking for and we can come up with a bespoke package to suit your needs.
‘We love to make people happy!
If you want your function to be one people will talk about for years to come, book Iron Broo.’
Six Pieces Ceilidh Band
Our usual performance times we’d put on our contract for a wedding would be 8 pm till midnight with a break during the evening buffet. During the break time, you can connect an iPod player if you have some special music you’d like played.
The wedding can sometimes run late…
At some weddings with the best will in the world, it is impossible to have the timings run correctly due to a number of reasons. Speeches can go on too long; meals take a long time to serve, guests are slow to move etc. If you have the band booked for an 8 pm start and the meal runs over it can delay the start time for the band while a hotel still has to carry out a room turn around and the band may yet have to set up the equipment. When this happens, it doesn’t mean that because the start time was an hour late, the ceilidh band can play an hour longer. It is not possible to do this because of the terms of the hotel license and nearby residents. It is also not fair on the band who might have been waiting for you to be ready for hours!
In most cases, we’d recommend an afternoon set up if at all possible. However, we have adapted our sound system so that most of it has already been prewired so we can set up in record time during a turnaround.
Afternoon set up
Often it is possible to set up the P.A. and lighting etc in the afternoon if there is space in the hotel. This saves a little time in the evening.
If you’d prefer all the gear set up in the afternoon please let us know as it does involve additional work and in some cases may involve some extra expense.
Wedding Ceilidh + Disco
We are happy to offer our very popular Ceilidh Disco combination to any of our line ups. Please visit the Ceilidh Disco page for more information on how it works.
Afternoon ceremonial music
Ceremonial Music is an additional extra we can also provide, delivering tasteful background ceremonial music during the afternoon service or in the church. An accordion and Fiddle duo perhaps or a three piece with the Bouzouki. We can combine our line up to suit your tastes. Visit our Traditional Scottish Ceremonial Music page.
