You have probably given a lot of thought to the right song for your first dance on your big day, but don’t leave your wedding ceremony music in the shadows. With this in mind, we have collated our pick of the best songs to serenade you into your life as husband and wife.
If you are after a traditional feel to your wedding ceremony Wagner’s Bridal Chorus is the classic choice. However, if you wish to have something a little more tailored to your taste there are some beautiful classical alternatives which have over the years become popular choices for processional music.
•Air on the G String – J.S. Bach
•Largo from Xerxes – G.F. Handel
For the more contemporary bride who still wants a romantic feel, the world is your oyster when it comes to processional music. From an instrumental version of your favourite song to a gospel choir singing you down the aisle, the choice is yours.
Here are some songs we feel have made the transition to processional music particularly well.
•Somewhere over the Rainbow (Israel Kamakawiwo'ole) - performed on guitar
•Kissing You (Des’ree) – performed on harp
It is worth choosing the music to accompany your last walk as a singleton carefully. Music is a powerful tool in evoking memory, a special song can transport us back in time and help keep special moments from our wedding day clear in our mind. Finding a piece of music you adore for your ceremony means that every time you hear it, that happy moment will come flooding back.
