You have said all your vows, exchanged rings, listened to your loved ones reading special words and now you need to sign on the dotted line.
Your guests will chat amongst themselves, but you don’t want them to get bored whilst waiting for your photographer to take those all important photos of you grinning from ear to ear!
Here is a list of our top 5 most popular classical ‘Register Signing’ pieces chosen by our couples since the beginning of 2018.
1. Air on a G String – Bach
A very well known piece of music. Most guests recognise it – it’s great background music for chatting to. If you are old enough you may remember this music was used for the Hamlet cigar ad back in the day. I wonder what Bach would have thought?
2. Clair De Lune – Debussy
Clair De Lune was originally a piano piece – I remember learning it as a child. Did you play piano?
3. The Flower Duet (from the opera Lakme) – Delibes
We are frequently asked to play this gorgeous piece of music for the signing of the register, however, it is also popular as an entrance piece. The usual version is a soprano and mezzo-soprano duet. We have it arranged for all 3 of our goups.
4. Spring 1st Movement – Vivaldi
This is always popular (especially for spring weddings!!) The full version is much too long to be played at a wedding ceremony so we have had special excerpts arranged. Just perfect for any part of your day. This piece of music is also extremely popular for the exit of the happy couple.
5. Oh Mio Babbino Caro – Puccini
One of the most famous “love songs” of all time”! Just perfect for a wedding day. This aria is from the 1918 Opera, Gianni Schicchi by Puccini. Have a listen – you will recognise it.
