Processional Wedding Ceremony Songs

“That amazing, never-to-be-forgotten moment you walk down the aisle to meet your partner. Make the music match the moment!

1. Bridal Chorus, Wagner

Often known as Here Comes The Bride, for decades this piece was the traditional choice for the procession of the bride. It is making a bit of a comeback now, especially in this new arrangement by Vicente Avella.

2. Canon in D, Pachelbel

This piece replaced ‘Here comes the bride’ as one of the most popular classical choices with brides. Go here to find out more about this intriguing piece. 

3. A Thousand Years, Christina Perri

A modern classic – a love song that works just as well without vocals when played beautifully on a piano.

4. Glasgow Love Theme

Walking down the aisle to a song from your favourite film soundtrack is another way to incorporate instrumental music with a personal touch into your ceremony. There are loads of options to choose from – Love Actually is a great place to start, and will have you welling up before you know it.
