Top 30 Ceremony Songs from Start to Finish

By Chris Ninni


Quite often we see clients get caught up in all the other thousands of things to organise for the reception that sometimes they forget live music for the ceremony! Now, although we all love the party that comes after the couple have tied the knot, the ceremony is the reason we are all there! It is the special moment and special moments like these require music to set the scene and the song choice always says a thousand words and can sometimes say more than what others can say themselves.

Top 30 Ceremony Songs from Start to Finish

The moment you enter and walk down the aisle seeing your soon to be husband for the first time on your wedding day (processional). The signing of the register, where things get very real and legally official. Followed by the cheers from family and friends as you walk out as husband and wife (recessional). An iPod entry doesn’t say special… believe us, we’ve seen it too many times. So check out our String Quartets or Duos & Trios to add that important element to your ceremony 🙂 you won’t regret it!
