Wedding Music Ideas for a newly married couple

Wedding Music Ideas

There are so things to consider when planning a wedding! As a Marriage Celebrant, I find most couples like to have music at the beginning, when the signing is taking place and at the end (recessional). I provide recorded music and a separate sound system with copyright protection as part of my service. Here are a wide range of ideas.
