A wedding is most definitely not the kind of occasion that should be allowed to come and go without going to a significant amount of effort to capture the event and all the memories that will be created on the day.
With all the months of planning that have gone before it, it is only fair to mark your wedding in as much style as possible and a professionally produced video is a memento that is quite difficult to match.
The opportunity to look back on this most special of days whenever you wish in the future is a wonderful thing to have at your disposal. On the video when it is produced, and also when it is time for the dances during the reception, you will need some music to do justice to the occasion so this is a selection of songs that will be ideal.
CeCe Peniston – Finally
The dance version of the American singer’s biggest song by far is perhaps more closely associated with hen nights than the actual wedding day but it still works just as well. ‘Finally’ is thought of by many as an early 90s classic and the instantly recognisable lyrics ‘finally it’s happened to me’ could be perfectly fitting for your day.
Savage Garden – Truly, Madly, Deeply
In all honesty, you could pick a number of efforts from the Australian duo’s repertoire and they would slot into your wedding day playlist seamlessly. ‘Truly, Madly, Deeply’ is arguably the one that most people would immediately pick out but ‘To The Moon And Back’ and ‘I Knew I Loved You’ are equally good choices.
Bob Marley & The Wailers – Is This Love?
For the feel-good vibes and the sense of togetherness there are not many better than Bob Marley. If you were to choose ‘Is This Love?’ as the song for your first dance then it is guaranteed to raise even more smiles than before and that isn’t a bad way to set things moving. Alternatively, you may decide that this is perfect for your wedding video.
Lauryn Hill featuring D’Angelo – Nothing Even Matters
There are a few different moods to choose from when it comes to your wedding songs but love is at the centre of each one. If you want to slow things right down then Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo’s collaboration is certain to get you feeling close to the one you are with.
UB40 – (I Can’t Help) Falling In Love With You
Elvis Presley’s version of this song is an alternative option but the UB40 rendition is much likelier to get everybody on the dancefloor. If the UB40 angle is appealing then you may also want to consider the group’s version of ‘I Got You Babe’ with Chrissie Hynde.
Shania Twain and Bryan White – From This Moment On
There are so many songs that are made for slow dances but this duet between Shania Twain and Bryan White is right up there. It is a terrific choice for feeling the strength of commitment you have made on the day.
Jessica Brown knows from experience how special a wedding day can and should be. When it came to the video to commemorate her big day she went to YSD Media and was extremely impressed by the quality.
