Choosing Your Perfect Ceremony Songs
Choosing your ceremony songs can be a big task, so we thought we’d put this handy guide together to outline how many songs take place during your ceremony and some one our most popular choices.
This varies from venue to venue but guests will be seated from around 20mins before the ceremony begins, we’ll start by playing some songs as your guests are seated and you are more than welcome to choose these from our Repertoire List.
This will be about 8 – 10 songs and we suggest choosing from our laid back and romantic section, guests will come one by one so it’s nice to add some background music as guests find their seats and get ready for your ceremony.
Your aisle song is arguably one of the most important songs of your whole day, it’s only a few minutes long but as you walk down the aisle it’s so important to have the perfect song.
Song choices vary from each couple we play for, and the choice will be one that’s personal to you, we have a great selection of Romantic songs for you to browse through.
As aisle songs are usually only a few minutes long we can re-arrange the song for you so you can hear your favorite part as you walk down the aisle too.
Some Of Our Favorite Aisle Songs Include:
- A Thousand Years – Christina Perri
- How Long Will I Love You – Ellie Goulding
- Can’t Help Falling In Love – Elvis
- The One – Kodaline
- Marry Me – Train
- At Last – Eva Cassidy
- Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran
- From This Moment- Shania Twain
- Make You Feel My Love – Adele
Signing The Register
After you have said all your ‘i do’s’ and are officially married it’s time to sign the register, your photographer will want a couple of photo’s with you and your witnesses and then your registrar will invite your guests to take photo’s too.
This usually takes around 2 – 3 songs, you are more than welcome to choose your songs from our repertoire list here and it’s completely up to you to which songs you might like.
This all depends on you and that’s the lovely thing about hiring a live musician for your ceremony as you can really put your musical tastes into your wedding day. We have a verity of choices from couples from romantic classics like “All Of Me” & “Thinking Out Loud” to quirky songs such as “You’re In Love With A Physio” & “Escape”.
The Sing Along
Some of our couples have requested a sing a long song as they sign the register, “All You Need Is Love” being a popular one, we’ve also had requests for “Wonderwall” Oasis here and “Get Lucky” Daft Punk too.
No one can resist a sing a long and it always adds a personal touch to your day.
If you’re having a humanist ceremony you may have a ring warming instead of signing the register and we can play a song as the ring is passed around the room as a little background music.
Exiting As A Married Couple
We can play one song as you exit as a married couple, you’ll get a couple of minutes as you walk back down the aisle so we are more than happy to adapt any song to include your favorite lyrics.

- All Of Me – John Legand
