A thousand years 🙂
Im walking down to Cant help falling in love by Elvis its a tribute to my opa who passed away 3 years ago he used to sing elvis all the time
Katie Boeck’s Ave Maria off of youtube on whatever cordless speakers i can get. eloping but im still walking to that song on my day, even on my imaginary aisle!
To preface this, we got married in a church with two amazing pipe organs, so we both wanted to take advantage of them. I walked down the aisle to Charpentier’s Te Deum prelude (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tQqNon55Wg) because I wanted something traditional that wasn’t the most common bridal march. I had also considered Jeremiah Clarke’s A Trumpet Voluntary (also called the Prince of Denmark march), but decided against it in the end.
I wanted at least one of the marches to be slightly less traditional though and though that it might be nice to have a piece of film music. I considered the Throne Room theme from the Episode 4 of Star Wars, but my husband thought that since neither of us was that hugely into Star Wars, it would be a little odd. In the end, we walked back down the aisle as the organist played an arrangement from the Return of the King soundtrack. I’m a massive Tolkien geek, so it felt right and the music in the coronation scene felt properly majestic and like it would work well on the organ.
When I first contacted the organist, I was slightly scared that he would be really against playing non-church music (they can refuse to play anything that they feel is against the tone of the event), but I shouldn’t have worried. He was nice enough to arrange something for us, at no extra cost, as long as we found the sheet music for him.
The Red Wedding from Game of Thrones
i keep flip flopping on what ill walk out to but we are exiting the ceremony to the song from the end of i think its the first star wars , we are working various disney songs in as well 🙂
The hazards of love 4 by the Decemberists. Slightly odd perhaps, given the drowning aspect, but i figured since its a song about two people who would rather die together then be alive and apart that its sort of romantic right? Anyway, its very pretty
Love all of these!! Love how meaningful and personal everyone’s choices are
