Wedding Pianist – Top Ten Wedding Ceremony Tunes of 2012
Recently, many of the couples I have been playing for have been choosing a lot more diverse and sometimes unique pieces of music for their wedding ceremonies. I have played a couple of weddings lately where the grooms have actually composed their own pieces of music especially for the day, and I have learned them, and one wedding I was commissioned to write some music for the entrance and exit.
To help prospective clients and couples trying to choose music for their ceremony, I have put together a “Top Ten” list of pieces that I have been asked to play this year, to give you a feel for what other couples have gone for. I always ask people to try to think “Outside of the wedding box” – i.e. beyond the traditional “Here comes the bride” and “Wedding March” type tunes. Why choose music that means nothing to you, when you could have a piece of music from a favourite film, or a song that has a special memory for you both?
I can learn any music for you from a film clip or CD/mp3, so why not have a good think about it rather than just going for the usual stuff.
Here is a list of the most popular pieces I have been asked to play this year, and also for what part of the ceremony they were mainly used:
- Carter Burwell – Bella’s Lullabye (Entrance music, and also signing of the register)
- John Lennon & Paul McCartney – Because (Prelude, Signing)
- Ludovic Einaudi – I Giorni (Prelude, Entrance or Signing)
- Ludovic Einaudi – Nuvole Bianche (Entrance or Signing)
- Ludovic Einaudi – Divenire (Entrance, Signing or Exit)
- John Barry – Walkabout Main Title (Entrance)
- Hans Zimmer – Gumption (Entrance)
- Katie Perry – A Thousand Years (Entrance)
- Phil Oakey & Giorgio Moroder – Together In Electric Dreams (Entrance, Signing)
- Ludovic Einaudi – Le Onde (Entrance, Signing or Exit)
