Wedding Music Inspiration At The Movies

Looking for the perfect first dance songs, romantic wedding songs or other wedding song ideas?

Musical inspiration at the movies

Choosing the music for your wedding day can be a timely process. Some couples know exactly the piece for the processional music, the signing of the register, the first dance and everything in between. Their ‘couple song’ is a perfect fit for a slow dance, and other favourite pieces to suit the occasion are readily agreed on. If, however, you are one of the tens of thousands of ‘To-Be-Weds’ desperately Googling ‘Wedding Song Ideas’ on a nightly basis, let us be of assistance. Looking to the movies for inspiration, we’ve put together a collection of our favourite romantic film songs:

May It Be - Lord Of The Rings
Enya and Roma Ryan’s ethereal folk song is hauntingly beautiful. Perfect for a fairytale wedding.

Your Song - Moulin Rouge
Originally written and performed by Elton John, Moulin Rouge brought us Ewan McGregor’s soaring rendition set against a surreal Parisian skyline. It’s even fit for royalty; Ellie Goulding sang her cover version for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s first dance.

Title Theme from Forrest Gump
Silvestri’s elegant title score swells and builds from the simple opening melody - perfect for making an entrance.

Everything I Do, I Do It For You - Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves
Bryan Adams’ instantly recognisable love song is a popular choice still, 24 years since it’s release and feature in the film, Robin Hood.

A Thousand Years - Twilight
Underscoring one of the most popular love stories from modern fiction, Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years is a beautiful choice, and certainly not exclusively for Twilight fans.

I’m Kissing You - Romeo and Juliet
Soulful and moving, Des’ree’s I’m Kissing You is heartfelt yearning at its best.
