A Wedding Without Music

Music at a wedding is an essential and integral part of the day as the songs you choose reflect your individual style and also tells your guests more about you both. A wedding without Music must be a wedding on the beach, where only the sounds of nature disturb, at the average wedding reception and ceremony,there is Music. At our wedding we chose a song from the Movie Juno, even though our wedding was on the beach, of course everyone who heard it wafting in the breeze thought we were crazy, but it is all in the words! Listen to the words.

Music is a must at the wedding but many of us do not know what songs to consider and when we must play them. I have put together a guideline that may help you below:

Firstly comes The Prelude, some song choices of the past include:

Falling in Love, Air on A G String, Air (from Water Music), The wedding Song,

I can only Imagine, Largo, Bless the Broken Road, Ariosa.

Then the bride walks down the aisle to what we call the ‘Processional', choices could be;

Reminiscent Joy, Canon In D Jesu, Joy of mans desiring, Hymn, Canon in F, Here comes the bride or Forever my love.

During the Ceremony brides are known to select from the songs mentioned here or choose something more modern and creative as we did. I still like the words of the Juno song, if you were a tree, I would be the wood etc

Popular ceremony songs are The wedding song – there is love, Ave Maria, I will be here, The gift of Love, How beautiful, Panis Angelicus, The Prayer, By the sea, To make you feel my love, The road that never ends.

At the end of the wedding ceremony, this is called the ‘Recessional', songs like these

Spring (from four seasons), Ode to Joy, Finale (from Water Music), Trumpet Tune, Randeau, Wedding March, work well.

Here are some popular songs and hymns that you may have heard to consider for your wedding:

From this moment

The way you look tonight

Forever in Love

It had to be you

When lights are low

Kiss the girl

At Last

Take my breath away – Berlin

Fill the world with Love – Hymn

Let there be love shared among us – Hymn

Bind us together Lord – Hymn

To God be the Glory – Hymns

Add your list to this one, put them all on your I pod and you are away. I have done many weddings at remote locations where the I pod was the perfect solution! Happy weddings and listening…and dancing of course!
