The nature of the harp itself adds touch of class to your wedding! Beste’s tip for your wedding ceremony’s steps;
As your guests arrive and are seated, they are welcomed with elegant music establishing the tone of your wedding. If your wedding is to take place in a church, more formal music, including hymns and classical pieces are played. In less formal settings, classical and modern love songs are preferred.

Seating of the Parents & Grandparents
The formal seating of the parents and grandparents is an indication that the ceremony has begun. Depending on the size of the party and length of the aisle, parents and grandparents may enter to the prelude music being played or a different piece.

Bridal Party Procession
During the processional, the wedding party walks down the aisle to take their respective places. This is the entrance of bridesmaids, groomsmen, ring bearer and flower girl. A piece with a consistent, easy walking tempo is perfect.
Canon in D
For the Bridal entrance, the voluminous Bridal March is traditionally played. However, always feel free to choose any song that you would like or that holds special value to you.Brides have requested everything from Beauty and the Beast, to Nuvole Bianche.

During the Ceremony/Unity Candle/Vows
It is optional, yet welcomed to have music playing during the ceremony. Music may be played as a solo or interlude during the ceremony, during the lighting of the Unity Candle or even softly underscoring the couple’s vows.

Largo in G
The Lord’s Prayer
Immediately following the ceremony, The Wedding March is a traditionally played piece as the newly married couple joyfully walks up the aisle. However, the Wedding March is just one example of the many upbeat, celebratory songs that could be used as your recessional.

Ode to Joy
Dussek Sonata I-II
As during the prelude of the ceremony, music is softly played to accompany guests as they leave the ceremony. In that part, we prefer upbeat happy melodies.
