Perfect Wedding Music

Wedding Music

Music is evocative, romantic, nostalgic and it plays an important role on your Wedding day. Whether you are having a religious or civil service there are certain times during the day that music will help to set the scene, entertain or simply make the guests go ‘Awwwww’.

This blog post is dedicated to top ten lists for each of the key parts of the day that music is used. Whilst it made me feel like a cheesy DJ to write I am hoping it will help give you some inspiration if required.

So, pop pickers, without further ado (*facepalm* really showing my age now!!)…
