Civil and Church Wedding Ceremony Music

These are just suggestions! Most are interchangeable to other parts of the ceremony. It’s good to choose an upbeat piece for your recessional which will set a mood of celebration for the rest of the day.

I will also play before the ceremony as guests arrive and are seated.

Can You Feel The Love Tonight
