Ceremony Music Ideas For Your Eclectic Wedding Day

Ceremony Music Ideas

When it comes to your wedding music you want something that suits both the two of you as a couple, your venue and your vibe of the day. Your ceremony music should be light and ambient and set the mood. It's otherwise known as background music, but you still want it to be a considered part of your wedding day.


Today, Dawn Rees an experienced and quirky Humanist celebrant shares her favourite ceremony music ideas.


Dawn says; "My favourite songs are always my couples' choice, not mine, but generally couples who fit my style find me because I fit theirs! My website leads them to me and only the brave follow the trail!"

Ceremony Music Ideas

Dance me to the End of Love - Leonard Cohen

You are my Turning Page - Sleeping At Last

Explosions in the Sky - Your Hand In Mine

Stand by Me - Ben E King

Dawn's ceremony style is easy-going, funny, romantic and off-beat. She loves adapting her style to the sort of ceremony couples are seeking and loves to write ceremonies that match their personalities. This more than shows in her eclectic ceremony music ideas!
