You’re ready to choose the tunes for your wedding, but don’t really want to go with the usual suspects? Personalised Wedding Music is the way to go!

The recent trend towards personalised wedding music is a brilliant way to infuse unique personalities into this special milestone. Gone are the days when a couple chose standard, popular tracks to cater to tradition and the majority.

By adding a playlist of personalised wedding music – from processional to farewell – you and your partner can create a soundtrack that really is all your own!

Delightful Disney

A sweet Disney ballad brings a smile to many a face. You’re guaranteed to get some “oohs” and “aahs”, often from the most unlikely of guests.

You don’t have to stick to ballads either. There’s a wonderful world of upbeat Disney songs to dance to!

We recommend: “A Whole New World” from Aladdin, “I See the Light” from Tangled, “That’s How You Know” from Enchanted

Golden Oldies

Couples that love some old-fashioned Rock ‘n’ Roll are usually in good company. Their song choices are most likely crowd-pleasers that get people of all ages on the dance floor. That’s a win-win if ever we saw one.

There are some awesome golden oldies suitable for wedding day highlights, too.

We recommend: “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley, “Chapel of Love” by The Dixie Cups, “I’m a Believer” by The Monkees (or go for the Smash Mouth version from the movie Shrek if you want to modernise a classic)

Dynamic Dance

Okay, so some couples love their dance music, and often the harder the better! Whether they throw in a bit (or a lot) of house, trance, or Hard NRG on their wedding day, there’ll certainly be a crew rocking the dance floor throughout the evening.

We recommend: “Music Sounds Better with You” by Stardust, “Only You” by Kaskade with Tiësto feat. Haley, and if you want to include a dance floor track that lots of people will recognise and love try “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & Goon Rock

Peresonalised Wedding Music

Hard Rock & Heavy Metal

If you’re a huge metal or hard rock fan, don’t hide it on your special day! Be true to yourselves and throw in some of your favourites, whether it be more mainstream metal or completely left of centre.

We recommend: “Love Walks In” by Van Halen, “Without You” by Mötley Crüe, “Pour Some Sugar on Me” by Def Leppard


For the most personalised wedding songs of all, originals are top of the list. We’ve seen some wonderful musicians write and perform beautiful songs at their own weddings as a dedication to their partner.

Not musical yourself? Engage the services of someone who is and give the ultimate wedding gift – an original song that is as unique as they are.
