Walking Down the Aisle

Walking down the aisle is exhilarating.

Signing the Register

This is a serious moment for you and your partner – it all becomes official! But everyone will be on a high from the ceremony and will need to be entertained as you sign your names and pose for pictures with key members of the wedding party.

Pick a fun song to sign the register to – and why not hire a professional to perform it to keep your guests entertained?

This song is a great choice for party loving couples – it was an Ibiza classic in 2014!

Leaving the Ceremony

As you walk out as newlyweds, it will really hit you and you’ll feel on top of the world! Make sure you pick something that reflects this invincible feeling.

Choose something meaningful to leave your wedding ceremony to – why not pick something upbeat and dance your way out of the reception?
