Songs to walk down the aisle to

Lonesome Pine 0069

If you turn to good old Google, and type in ‘best songs to walk down the aisle to’ – it comes up with over 3.5 million results. How can you possibly choose from all those?! Which got us thinking, surely, with over 12 years of wedding experience we can help here?

Over the past year we’ve been asking our couples at Browsholme various things, including what song they chose to walk down the aisle to. From the traditional to the wacky, there are some great choices, so even if you want something a little bit different hopefully these will get your creative cogs turning! Think of this as aisle inspo?

Starting at the more traditional end of the spectrum, Steph and Ciaron had a church wedding and walked down the aisle to the “Wedding March” and excited to “At Last - Etta James”.

John and Letty went classical with ‘Winter’ by Vivaldi, whereas Nicola and Stuart opted for ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ by Van Morrison.

Gemma and Sam, Gemma being a self-confessed huge Westlife Fan, had Shane Filan’s cover of ‘Make you Feel my Love’.

Unfortunately, I can’t find the bagpipe version of Braveheart’s ‘A Gift of a Thistle’ that Tilly and Craig had at their wedding by the Lonesome Pine, but it certainly made for an eye catching and unique entrance all round.

For the Disney fans out there (who isn’t a Disney fan?!) – Ben and Danie had the ‘Circle of Life’ from the Lion King playing whilst Jen and Lee had ‘Let it Go’ from Frozen. Both entrances to be remembered!!

One on its own however would be Gemma and Gaz’s wedding who had a friend sing the acoustic version of ‘Rapture’ by Iio on guitar, and if you’re wondering what the uncovered version sounds like … have a listen. It’s great.

Last but not least (as the search results on Google would certainly agree) is all time favourite ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri not to be confused with 500 miles covered by Peter Kay... Lauren and Billy had it played by their String Quartet (What the Pluck) whilst Siobhan and Mike had the good old original version for their Outdoor Wedding by the Lily Pond.

Does the letter contain protestations of innocence or beg his father’s forgiveness and promises to do better, as we, dear reader, would probably do? No. It doesn’t even mention the report.
