We have finally decided on all the songs for our ceremony which is a definite load off our minds, well my mind any ways. FH as usual, went yep, those ones are good or nah not keen on that one after my hours of researching and coming up with a small list. Natasha, our celebrant also sent us a list of songs which have been used at the weddings that she has officiated at which was very helpful as well.

    Do you think i should add in one more for recessional/guests mingling (which i have kind of included together) I notice you have a few more than me?

    1. Love your choices too. Our celebrant recommended 10 mins of pre ceremony songs, two for the registry, and a few songs at the end of it before we go off for photos. We have one recessional and two mingling at the end.

    2. I'll see walking down the aisle to marry me by train too!
      It's beautiful!

    3. Ooh very nice. its a very pretty song.

  3. Music has always been one of the details I love to find out about weddings. I really want to walk down the aisle to Josh Groban when you say you love day!
