Adrienne can help you with planning the music for your wedding. She provides musical selections for wedding cermonies as follows:

Prelude Music:

This is soft background music played while the guests are being seated. It sets the mood for both beauty and the solemnity of the service.

Processional Music:

The processional music is played when the bride and her bridesmaids walk down the aisle. If the bridal party is large you may opt to have two songs; one for the bridesmaids and a separate one for the bride. Some recommended wedding processionals include Canon in D, Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring and the traditional Here Comes the Bride.

Signing of the Register:

Pleasant background music is played while the bride and groom sign the marriage documents. There are many options available, but something soft and inspiring is usually most appropriate.

Recessional Music:

Recessional music is played at the completion of the ceremony as the bride and groom along with the wedding party leave the church. It is usually upbeat and celebratory. A few suggestions include the Wedding March by Mendelssohn, Trumpet Voluntary by Purcell and Ode to Joy by Beethoven. 
Adrienne is happy to take your musical requests and incorporate them into your ceremony. Let Adrienne help you to create the musical mood for your wedding day.
