Wedding Song Lyrics and Language

Some couples choose their wedding songs purely based on liking the music, without paying much attention to the lyrics.  For others, the lyrics are the most important consideration!  You need to think about what is important to you, and if the lyrics do matter, then you will need to find songs that are not only musically beautiful, but have lyrics that are significant and meaningful to you.

Many classical songs are not in English.  You will need to decide if this is OK with you.  Occasionally, I may be able to sing translated English lyrics, but for many songs such translations are simply not available.

However, do bear in mind that if you choose a song in a language other than English, I will be happy to provide you with a translation that can be printed in your wedding program or Order of Service.

If members of your family speak a language other than English, it may even be desirable for you to have a song in their native language.  The most common languages for classical songs are Italian, French and German and I am competent at singing in these languages.

If you like one of the song samples on my main Wedding Ceremonies page and want to see the full lyrics, please email me and I will send them to you (as a PDF file) free of charge.

If you have any questions about song lyrics or languages or any special language requests, please phone or email me to arrange a free consultation!
