Seven classical songs for your wedding ceremony

20 Jul 2016

Seven classical UK wedding singers proffer their favourite ceremonial songs 

1. 'Oh Mio Bab Bino Caro' by Puccini: Pippa Breeze

"My favourite wedding song to sing is 'Oh Mio Bab Bino Caro' by Puccini from the opera, Gianni Schicchi. It is a passionate song sung by a young woman who deeply desires to marry her love. The song expresses a love that is pure amidst the surroundings of pettiness and feuds.  It's a beautiful example of how strong a love can be."

2. 'Ave Maria' by Schubert: Saira Luther

"With so many beautiful wedding songs it’s hard to select just one. Schubert’s 'Ave Maria' is definitely a favourite. The song’s elegant simplicity is a joy to sing and it is so fitting for a traditional wedding. I also love 'Nella Fantasia' for its gorgeous melody and classical crossover feel."

3. 'The Flower Duet' from Lakme: Lyrica

"'The Flower Duet' from Lakme is one of the most requested songs that we sing for weddings and is particularly suitable for the entrance of the bride in a church or civil ceremonies. It is sung here by Elizabeth Glen and Zoe Maitland of Lyrica."

4. 'This Day': Jennifer Maslin

"When it comes to wedding songs, the beautiful Ave Maria is always a popular choice. However the words and melody of 'This Day' by Chilcott strike a particular chord with me: “This day inscribe us for a happy, happy life, is a lovely blessing with which to start married life."

5. 'A Time For Us': Emily Estelle

"There is nothing more beautiful than the theme tune from the greatest love story of all time, Romeo and Juliet. 'Un Groin Per Noi', also known as 'A Time For Us' is full of passion and romance, which makes it the perfect song to perform at a wedding and it's always guaranteed to be a tear-jerker."

6 'Song to the Moon': Roseanna Bowen 

"Many couples like to personalise their ceremony music, and as a request-taking wedding singer, I have performed all sorts of numbers - from 'Ave Maria' to Adele. Beautiful classics such as 'Pie Jesu', 'The Prayer' or 'Song to the Moon' add a touch of romantic magic to any wedding ceremony."

7. 'Panis Angelicus': Sophie Macrae

"Performing at a wedding is one of my most favourite performance settings. To be a part in making someone’s day one of their most memorable is truly special! My favourite wedding piece to perform would be 'Panius Angelicus'. It has a wonderfully magical and uplifting feel to it, both musically and lyrically, which, I feel, is the perfect sentiment for a wedding service.”
