Songs to sign your marriage certificates to

Updated: Sep 24, 2020

It's a moment of reflection and excitement as your guests watch you and your witnesses sign your official marriage certificates. Yes, they will all chat about how good the ceremony has been so far, but it's also nice to have some music playing in the background to keep the energy level up.

Think about a song that means something to the two of you. Perhaps it's "your song". Maybe it's a song that reflects your relationship, or a moment in your relationship that was talked about by the celebrant within the ceremony.

You can go with a classic like Van Morrison's "Crazy Love" (the 2013 remaster), Percy Sledge's "When A Man Loves A Woman" or "Fly Me To The Moon" by Frank Sinatra. Or perhaps you're after a strictly modern feel so Ed Sheeran's "Kiss Me", or Emily Hackett & Will Anderson's version of "Take My Hand" might just be perfect.

Whatever song you choose, it should reflect your personalities, so that it fits in with the other music chosen for the ceremony. Make sure you choose songs for your big day that perfectly capture the atmosphere and emotions and conjure up happy memories for a lifetime.
