🆘 Help choosing Wedding Ceremony Music !!

Choosing songs for your ceremony can be a sticking point for some couples. Let me help! 😎

More or less any piece of music ranging from Pachelbel’s Canon to AC/DC can be performed to some degree on the classical guitar. Some pieces work better than others of course, but within reason I can tailor the song to suit the different parts of a wedding ceremony and/or reception as appropriate. I hope this short guide will offer some inspiration and help you choose music for your day.

Typically a slower piece is best suited to the aisle walk and register signing, with something more upbeat for the recessional. Having performed all sorts from Foo Fighters to Nessun Dorma I welcome requests - these are merely a selection of my tried and tested recommendations.
