by | Mar 7, 2017 | Blog, Melbourne, Sydney

Along with the guests, the flowers and the dress, the music that you choose, speaks of your own personalities and your unique love for one another. We are delighted to bring you more Ideas for Ceremony Songs for Weddings!




Planning the music for your wedding entertainers Sydney is one of the most important aspects of your special day and you want one of the best wedding band Melbourne available to showcase your music choices. And when it comes to ceremony songs for weddings, the wedding singer Sydney or wedding singers you choose are of equal importance.


Far from the traditional music and ceremonies, these songs set the mood, whether it’s calm and serene, fun and exciting or funny and laughter-filled.


For the bride who wishes to make a grand entrance in a unique way, there are wonderful songs available. One option might be a new twist on Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World. This marvelous piece can be used as the bride comes out, sang by the now young and famous Kaitlyn Maher.


If you want to get away from the traditional, there’s no better than Kamakawiwo’ole’s Somewhere over the Rainbow.

Wedding ceremonies have taken a sharp turn from convention and many tend to be more of a production, including the ring bearer, flower girls, bridesmaids and groomsmen. And the music that accompanies these beautiful, often quirky entrances is far from what has been in played in the past.
