ACOUSTIC WEDDING CEREMONY MUSIC

The music for your wedding ceremony is probably one of the most important parts of your wedding music planning, as it’s the biggest part of your day.

Choosing the right songs for each part of your ceremony is the key to making your ceremony flow well, and be a whirlwind of emotion.

The moment you see each other for the first time down the aisle, exchange vows in front of your friends and family and become a married couple. 

As an acoustic wedding singer and wedding guitarist for over 8 years, I have seen hundred’s of couples tie the knot. Using my experience I have compiled a list of the most popular songs from my set list to help you choose the music for your ceremony.

These are only examples, and my advice is to choose music that reflects you as a couple, or a song that has a special meaning. I am more than happy to learn any songs for your ceremony that are not on my set list or perform an alternative arrangement to make your wedding more personal and bespoke.
