Song Selections


Quite often I will learn songs specifically requested by the Bride & Groom. The only limitation is the amount of time I have to do so and that the style of music generally fits into my own. All other artists should be willing/able to do the same.

Often, the Bride will ask me what I suggest be played. I am proud to say that the most requested song for the weddings I've done is an original of mine called "You are the One". However, you should feel free to choose whatever songs fit the vision you have for your wedding day. (Note: the further you are from a major city, the harder it will be to find versatile artists at an affordable price.)

Whether you are looking for more traditional songs like the "Wedding Song (There Is Love)" by Peter, Paul & Mary; or "The Rose" by Bette Midler (written by Willie Nelson), or if you prefer a more modern selection more and more couples are creating tailor-made soundtracks that truly define who they are and what their love is all about.

Here are some popular selections:

- YOU ARE THE ONE (Luc Normand)

- GIVE A LITTLE BIT (Supertramp)

- I SWEAR (John Michael Montgomery)

- LOST TOGETHER (Blue Rodeo)

- ROPE THE MOON (John Michael Montgomery)

- WONDERFUL TONIGHT (Eric Clapton)

- YOUR LOVE AMAZES ME (John Berry)


Other options:

- ANGEL EYES (Jeff Healey)

- BATTLE HYMN OF LOVE (Kathy Mattea)

- BOOK OF LOVE (Peter Gabriel)

- Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simon & Garfunkel)

- DARK ANGEL (Blue Rodeo)

- HAPPY TOGETHER (Turtles)

- LEAN ON ME (Bill Withers)

- LOVE IS ALL AROUND (Wet, Wet, Wet (Turtles))

- LOVE YOU TIL THE END (The Pogues)

- ME AND YOU (Kenny Chesney)

- REMEMBER WHEN (Alan Jackson)

- STAND BY ME (Ben E. King)

- WHEN YOU SAY NOTHING AT ALL (Alison Krauss)

- WILL YOU MARRY ME (John Berry)

- YOU’VE GOT A FRIEND (Carole King)

- YOUR EVERYTHING (Keith Urban)


If you're looking for a more unique flavour, here are some additional songs from my originals collection:

From my current CD

- MEAGAN (or Megan or Meaghan)


As well, given ample time and details of the story behind your relationship, I may be able to write an original based on your very own story.
