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

Al Green – Let’s stay togther

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