It is “that” moment everyone is waiting for! The entrance of the wedding party.
Your wedding ceremony is one of the most important days of your life and live string music helps to create a beautiful, intimate atmosphere, leaving your guests with special, lasting memories. We love helping our couples create their perfect musical scenery for their big day and playing for the entrance of the wedding party is still one of our favourite moments.
The trend, over the last number of years, has veered away from the traditional classical music towards our couples’ favourite love songs.
However, we do still have lots of couples who prefer their wedding ceremony to be a little more traditional, especially when it comes to their ceremony music. We have found this applies, not only to Church Weddings, but to Civil Weddings as well.
We have compiled a list of the 5 most popular classical music requests we have had from our couples over the last year.
Canon in D – Pachelbel
This must be an all time favourite for couples. We love it too. It is performed all around the world at wedding ceremonies and creates a serene but regal start to any ceremony.
Prince of Denmark’s March – Jeremiah Clark
This piece of music (also known as “Trumpet Voluntary”) is very popular at a wedding. It is a great piece for making and entrance to. Lady Diana Spencer made her Bridal Entrance to this piece at Westminster Abbey in 1981.
The Swan (Le Cygne) – Saint Saens
This beautiful piece of music is graceful, elegant and hauntingly romantic. The ‘cello has one of the most beautiful sounds of the string family.
Arrival of the Queen of Sheba – Handel
Another very well known entrance piece and written by one of the greatest composers of all time. Upbeat and lively, it’s a great entrance piece for an excited couple. It was played during the opening ceremonies at the 2012 Olympics in London.
Bridal Chorus – Wagner
Still very popular. You will recognise this piece of music instantly! Here it is played on the organ.
