Dancing down the Aisle..

Today we continue the list of seriously amazing songs for your wedding that you might never have thought of.

The links lead to youtube, but you could easily put together a spotify list as well.

Today, the vast majority of people don't get married in a church.  So far, I have only photographed one church wedding in 7 years.  This means that the traditional organ music that our parents and grandparents used doesn't really suit most of us.  Many people choose contemporary songs that remind them of a special moment with their partner, or one where the words speak to their heart. With that in mind, I have put together a starting list that would suit a modern bride's walk down the aisle, whether you be on the arm of your father, both parents, one of your children, a sibling or even if you are walking down the aisle together with your fiance.  


My own wedding, 30 years ago, I walked down the aisle to Pachelbel's Canon in D - it's a beautiful piece of music that has many variations, and has been a wedding favourite for many years.  You can find a stunning version here.  My sister was married in a cathedral and had the Ave Maria, a truly beautiful piece of music for a church wedding.

Warning - this list MAY make you remember your own wedding, or the last one you went to, so maybe grab a box of tissues for the happy tears.

Ellie Goulding - Love me like you do

The Beatles - Here comes the sun

Sarah McLachlan - Ice Cream

Christina Perry - A thousand years

The Muppets - He'll make me happy

Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand - Get Happy

John Lennon - Grow old with me

Ingrid Michaelson - The way I am

Velvet Underground - I'll be your mirror

Sarah Bareilles -

Al Green - Let's stay togther

Phil Collins - Groovy Kind of Love


So, there you have it, some great fun songs and some beautiful love songs, all suitable for that most amazing walk of your life.
