A bride emailed and asked me for some ceremony recessional song ideas, I don’t often share music recommendation on this blog because music choice is quite the personal thing and different people love different songs, and different people think that my different songs are different. Do you see where I’m going?

Alas, here are some songs I’m loving in wedding ceremonies at the moment. Steal and ignore on a whim.

Please note: This is just a brain dump of crazy and weird wedding songs, not a pretty and well-organised list! Please add your own suggestions in the comments 🙂
