Are you someone that feels warm and fuzzy when you hear a soft sweet love song? Thinking about some relaxed afternoon music for your wedding or planning a first dance?
Well you COULD do the obvious thing and reach for Ed Sheeran or John Legend… but before you do, check out these suggestions! Most of these are songs that our Cambridge based wedding bands have been asked to play over the years and have particularly stood out as beautiful, memorable performances.
Dream A Little Dream
Let’s start with a classic, but not overplayed number. This song seems to make the world brighter and the sun more radiant. There’s loads of great versions including Louis Armstrong and The Mamas & The Papas but any great band will be able to put their own spin on this glorious melody.
Baby I’m Yours
For some reason, Sheffield indie rockers Arctic Monkeys wrote this pastiche sixties crooner song… and it’s wonderful! A bit tongue in cheek but deeply romantic, this ballad sounds both wonderfully nostalgic and current at the same time.
Fade Into You
Chilled 90s alternative rock next from the dreamy Mazzy Star. The vocals lazily sit over the comforting sway of the band and this song has me feeling like I’m laying on a haystack in the sun.
We Found Each Other In The Dark
A little bit of smooth country from City & Colour here. The songwriting is glorious and the lyrics are so heartfelt. This song has a perfect waltz feel that’s so uplifting.
This Old Love
This song from Aussie guitarist and singer Lior tells a mesmerising story of partnership that will leave a lump in your throat. Emotional lyrics and stunning vocals, what’s not to love?!
