Having contemporary, meaningful music as part of our wedding celebrations was really imporant for The Man and I. Thankfully we have very similar tastes in music so agreeing on songs was easy. The hard part was finding songs that were appropriate for the occasion… it seems most of our favourite songs are about unrequited love or breaking up!
I wanted to create a mix CD for us when we’re feeling mushy and to share our music taste and sentiment with our guests. Here’s the selection of the special songs from the day, some sung by a choir. Yes, people, we had a freakin’ choir.
Gorecki (Lamb) – Processional
Sew My Name (Josh Pyke – sung by choir) – Register signing (sorry, could only find a shoddy live recording for the playlist)
You’ve Got The Love (Florence and the Machine) – First dance
God Only Knows (The Beach Boys – sung by choir) – Recessional
This Old Love (Lior – sung by choir)
Hallelujah (Jeff Buckley – sung by choir) – Register signing
Happy Together (The Turtles – sung by choir) – Recessional
Such Great Heights (The Postal Service)
Harmony to my Heartbeat (Sally Seltmann) – Cake cutting
Bus Ride (Alex Lloyd)
On This Side (Clare Bowditch)
