Ceremony musicians typically play from 30 minutes to 1 hour for symbolic & civil ceremonies - playing while guests arrive and seat themselves and through parts of the ceremony. During your ceremony they will usually play a tune for the bride’s entrance, something in the background during the exchange of rings and at the end while you sign your certificate and walk back up the aisle together.
Musicians for receptions usually play for 3 to 4 hours.

In Italy it is law to purchase an SIAE music license for every event with live musicians or DJ. The license pays royalties for the tracks played. The license is based on guest numbers, location and type of music played. The SIAE is not needed for civil ceremonies in the Venice Wedding Hall.
