|Wedding Music: Prelude Selections
While friends & guests gather, we provide light & happy selections for "Prelude".
We begin about 15-20 minutes before Ceremony, or at the time you prefer.
Prelude Selections......best to have a good mix of Classical & pop/movie favorite selections, such as:
J.S. Bach: "Air from Orchestral Suite No. 3" (aka Air for the G String), "Arioso" & many more
"Be Thou My Vision", Let All Things Now Living & other traditional hymn tunes
Beatles: "Grow Old With Me" Christina Perri " A Thousand Years"
Vangelis: "Hymne" Unchained Melody
Andrew Lloyd Weber, many choices such as "Memory" from Cats
Celtic favorites like "Give Me Your Hand" Rhosymedre by Ralph Vaughn Williams
Handel Water Music Mozart Laudate Dominum Mendelssohn "Wings of Song"
We arrive extra-early to arrange a cue for when to begin your Processionals. You might want to have up to 3
processionals (Parents, Attendants, and Bride).
Pachelbel Canon in D is wonderful since it has built-in resolutions every 2 or 4 bars. Traditional choices are:
Clarke's Trumpet Voluntary
Purcell's Trumpet Tune
JS Bach: Jesu, Joy
Handel Air from Water Music
But for something less common, you might consider:
Yellow by Coldplay (wedding version)
In My Life by the Beatles
Bittersweet Symphony by Mick Jagger
I'll Be by Edwin McCain
....we have done nearly everything for a Processional, even Viva la Vida!
Ultimately, your Processional is totally your choice! It's best if the phrases are not too long, as we don't want to keep
you waiting too long at the altar, before you begin your Ceremony.

Memorials to those who have passed on & other Interludes,
including Liturgical music:
|Recessional Selections--Joyful, Upbeat and Ready to Party!
Once your Officiant Introduces you, we launch into your Recessional music.
We will do our best to play louder than the applause! Consider:
Handel: Hornpipe or La Rejouissance
All You Need is LOVE by the Beatles
Here Comes The Sun
Mendelssohn's Wedding March
Arrival of the Queen of Sheba by Handel
Or perhaps something Totally Different---such as "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz!
We continue to perform lively music, in your style, as your guests transition to the next phase of Celebration.
