What music should I have for my wedding music? Tips and advice

– Hi! Mark Deeks from
Music Newcastle here. So today’s question: What music should you have as your wedding music? I want you to forget
that there’s such a thing as wedding music. It doesn’t exist. We’ve got this idea built into our heads that wedding music, whatever that is, is classical music, or
“Here Comes the Bride”, or whatever the latest love song is that everyone’s talking about. I want you to forget that idea. I want you to return to your music. What’s the music that your grandad used to sing to you when you were a kid? What songs did you and your mates used to make up dance routines
to when you were at school? What tunes does you and your mates go clubbin’ to when you’re at university? What’s the song you and you
partner fell in love to? What song do you stick on
the radio first thing when you’re going on a long drive
with you and your other half? That’s your music. That’s the music that means something to you. Forget this idea that we can only have certain kinds of music at weddings. You can’t. You can have
anything you like and we can reinterpret it in
lots of different ways, and represent it in
lots of different ways, and we can talk about that. But let’s start with, what is your music? ‘Cause that should be your wedding music. More tips coming soon.
