Music For Your Wedding Ceremony

The magical moment when you walk down the aisle on your wedding day is a memory you will always hold close to your heart. The music that accompanies you will also be forever part of the memory, so here are some ideas to help you choose the perfect musical accompaniment.

Your History

Is there a song or piece of music that has a special meaning to you both? Perhaps a song that reminds you of when you first met, or something by a favourite artist. Using a piece of music that has a special meaning will make your walk down the aisle even more memorable.

Live or Recorded

Once you have made your choice, the next decision to make is whether you would like to have the music played from a recording or live by a musician.

Having your chosen piece played live can give an added dimension, discuss your requirements with your wedding coordinator, as they will have the contact details for musicians who have experience of playing at your chosen venue.Consider Your Venue

Think about your chosen venue when deciding on which type of music to have. For example if you are getting married in a stately home the acoustics would be perfect for a harpist or a string quartet. You don’t necessarily have to choose a classical piece, modern songs can be beautifully interpreted in this way.Make It A Surprise

You and your partner could each choose a piece of music for the wedding ceremony, and keep it secret until the day.

Something with a special meaning to both of you to make it more personal.

One piece for the entrance of the bride – processional, and one for the exit following the ceremony – recessional.
