Wedding Music - the Entrance

Music can set the tone for your wedding like nothing else. At Martini Strings we are committed to creating the perfect atmosphere for your day, so here are a few things to think about when considering the music for your entrance to the ceremony.

Think about the sort of feel you want for your guests. Do you want a very formal occasion? That's ok, it's whatever works for you. If you want a very formal occasion, I'd recommend choosing traditional classical pieces. Some suggestions would be:
  • Canon in D (Pachelbel)
  • Bridal Chorus (Wagner)
  • Wedding March (Mendelssohn)
If you still want a formal feel but you're not so keen on these, you might consider these:
  • Trumpet Voluntary (Jeremiah Clarke)
  • Alla Hornpipe (Handel)
  • Trumpet Tune (Purcell)
Perhaps you still want the elegance of a ceremonial occasion without feeling stiff? There are some movie & TV themes that we've played for entrances that work quite well, like these:
  • "Feather theme" from Forrest Gump
  • "A Thousand Years" from Twilight, by Christina Perri
  • "My Heart Will Go ON" from Titanic
And then...there's your imagination! If you have a favourite song that you really want, we're usually able to either find it or arrange it ourselves. We just need a bit of time, so make you let us know at least 4-6 weeks before your wedding if you can't find your favourite song on our list. We love adding to our library too, so we're more than happy to hear your ideas.

I hope that helps - tune in next time for ideas on what to choose for signing the register!
