Music for Weddings
Although there are many traditional pieces of music associated with weddings, just about anything goes these days. Many brides and grooms ask for pieces of jazz, music from the shows or even pop music arranged for string quartet during their wedding ceremony, whether it is a church ceremony in your area or a civil ceremony.
Church Wedding Music for your wedding in your area,
Christian wedding songs can of course be played during a church wedding ceremony, but can not be played during a civil wedding ceremony or civil partnership. The registrar covering your area will normally want to know what exact pieces that will be played before and during the ceremony and will veto anything with Christian religious connotations.
Wedding March Music for the Bridal entrance and exit
The two famous wedding marches are by Wagner [normally for the entrance] and Schubert [normally for the exit]. However Pachelbel’s Canon, Handels’ the Entrance of the Queen of Sheba or the Hornpipe from the water music are also popular. But any piece of music can be used that is easy to march to and which has lots of convenient places for the musicians to stop at can be used for your ceremony in your area.
Wedding Processional Music & Recessional Music
Whatever you choose, you must be able to walk rhythmically to it. The entrance music needs to be quite slow and stately. There must be a lot of places in the music where the musicians can bring the music to a stop. Normally the entrance is between half to one can a half minutes, and it can not be predicted how fast everyone will walk and how long bride and bridesmaids will take to arrange themselves
