We are often asked by couples to give some suggestions for songs for different parts of their wedding day, especially the wedding ceremony, so the following are some suggestions based on what we've been asked for over the last few years. However these are only suggestions- our full list of songs is available here - and remember we will learn a song for you at no extra charge if we don't already play it!

 

The Ceremony

During the seating of the guests we suggest some relaxed and romantic songs to set the mood- such as

  • All of Me- John Legend

  • Amazed- Lonestar

  • Don't Know Why - Norah Jones

  • Here, There and Everywhere- The Beatles

  • Is This Love- Bob Marley & The Wailers

  • The Power of Love - Gabrielle Aplin/Frankie Goes to Hollywood

  • Thinking Out Loud- Ed Sheehan

 

Then there is that all-important processional song as the bride walks down the aisle! This is often where couples will ask us to learn 'that special song' for them- but remember that you will only get to hear around 90 seconds of the song (we will arrange a special version for you). Previous requests have included-

  •  A Thousand Years- Christina Perri

  • Evergreen- Barbara Streisand

  • From This Moment On - Shania Twain

  • Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley

  • How Long Will I Love You- Ellie Goulding

  • Make You Feel My Love - Adele

  • The One- Kodaline

  • Our House- Crosby Stills and Nash

  • Songbird - Eva Cassidy

  • You Are My Sunshine- Traditional

 

If your wedding is in a church we are sometimes asked to play a hymn near the beginning of the service, we know quite a lot of the more popular ones such as Amazing Grace, Ave Maria, Lord of All Hopefulness, All Things Bright and Beautiful, Morning has Broken etc. We are always happy to learn others if you wish (and this will not count as your 'free song')

 

During the signing of the registers we will normally play 2-3 songs, this can really be whatever you like but they usually tend to be more 'entertaining' songs than the background songs played earlier- previous songs have been-

  • Baby I Love You- The Ramones

  • Cupid- Sam Cooke/Amy Winehouse

  • Dream A Little Dream Of Me - The Mamas & The Papas

  • Everything Has Changed- Taylor Swift/Ed Sheehan

  • I Won't Last a Day Without You - Carpenters

  • Little Things Mean a Lot- Little Shoes Big Voice

  • Never Tear Us Apart - Paloma Faith

  • Promise Me - Beverley Craven

 

Finally there is the Recessional, when the newly married couple leave, followed by the rest of the wedding party and guests. Lots of couples refer to this as their 'Exit song' and choose something upbeat and celebratory!

  • Best Day of my Life- American Authors

  • Ho Hey- The Lumineers

  • Kiss Me - Sixpence None The Richer

  • Marry You- Bruno Mars

  • Next To Me - Emeli Sandé

  • Nothings Gonna Stop Us Now- Starship

  • Shut up and Dance- Walk The Moon

  • Some Kind Of Wonderful - The Drifters

  • Up- Olly Murs and Demi Lovato
