Choosing the perfect selection of songs for your special event can be both exciting and overwhelming. Below you will find an extensive list of songs suitable for all and any type of ceremony. Should you decide to book me for your big day, further samples and helpful templates will be at your disposal. We can then work closely to create a programme that reflects your wishes, tastes and personalities. 

This list is by no means exhaustive and I am, of course, open to learning that very special song for your ceremony.
