Wedding Ceremony Music Suggestions

The tracks listed below in red have been recorded by the Kaleidoscope String Quartet. The majority of the pieces have also been arranged for the Palm Court Trio and Salon Orchestra as well. Should you require a piece of music not listed below, then please call or email to discuss further as we may well have the music in our library or be able to source an arrangement for you.

Entrance of the Bride

This needs to be a piece that allows the musicians to stop at any given point during the music.

Bridal Chorus (from Lohengrin) – Wagner

Arrival of the Queen of Sheba – Handel

Canon in D – Pachelbel

Rondo (theme used in Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra) – Purcell

Air (from the Water Music) – Handel

Air (also know as Air on a G string) – Bach

Trumpet Tune – Purcell

Hornpipe (from the Water Music) – Handel

Trumpet Voluntary – Clarke

Wedding March – Mendelssohn

Signing of the Register

At this point the guests often start to talk amongst themselves, so the music will become more background. For most weddings the musicians would normally play 2-3 classical pieces, however you can choose almost any piece from our classical or popular repertoire lists if you wish.

Various movements from The Four Seasons – Vivaldi

Presto or any movement from the String Quartets – Mozart

Brandenburg Concerto No.1 – Bach

Flower Duet (used in the British Airways advert) – Delibes

Carmen – Bizet

Polotsvian Dances (Prince Igor) – Borodin

Romance (from the Gadfly) – Shostakovich

Minuet (used in the film The Ladykillers) – Boccherini

Recessional

This piece should be more uplifting than previous music. Again, the musicians would normally play another classical piece at this point, however you can choose almost any piece from our classical or popular repertoire lists.

1st movement from Spring (The Four Seasons) – Vivaldi

Brandenburg Concerto No.1 – Bach

Hornpipe (from the Water Music) – Handel

1st movement from Eine Kleine Nachtmusik – Mozart
