The wedding ceremony

Wedding ceremony music

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, you and your partner will have spent hours thinking about every part of your wedding day, from choosing the perfect venue, the wedding dress, the flowers, the food, you may have also spent a long time choosing your first dance song and the music that is going to fill your dance floor for your wedding party. But a question that I am often asked within a few weeks of the wedding day is “Can you recommend any ceremony music”  

As somebody who has recently got married myself, the one part of the day that both you and your partner along with all your friends and family are there for is the wedding ceremony, so why not spend a little time choosing the right music to create the right emotions for your wedding ceremony.

Your wedding ceremony Ceremony is split into 4 Parts

The Pre-Ceremony

Imagine all your guests have taken their seats in the ceremony room, everyone is waiting for the brides arrival, most wedding venues will either have no music playing or maybe whatever CD  or playlist happens to be in the CD player, but why not pick 5 or 6 songs that mean something to you are your partner love, that create the emotions that you both of you want your guests to feel.

Here Are Some Examples Of Pre-Ceremony Music

  • Chris Ingham – Come Away With Me
  • Chris Ingham – Over The Rainbow
  • Chris Ingham – You’ve Got A Friend
  • Piano Guys – Just The Way You Are
