Beautiful Piano Music for Weddings
A wedding is one of life’s greatest celebrations, and with that comes the task of choosing timeless music to match the day. Music is actually something that runs through the entire day from start to finish. Before you choose that tacky tune to play on your wedding DVD, check out our handy guide on all the wonderful piano pieces to be used at your wedding.
Why Choose Piano Music at a Wedding?
If you’re considering piano music as an option for your wedding, you have plenty of good reason to. Here’s why piano music is a clear winner at weddings:
There’s nothing like a grand piano sitting in a room to bring class and sophistication to an occasion. Add some suitable piano tunes and you will truly have the experience of a relaxed, stylish wedding.
Choosing music can be tricky, but when it comes to piano pieces there are so many to choose from. These are pieces that never become outdated, and your children and children’s children will be able to recognise (and maybe play themselves).
While DJs and cover bands can be great fun, they can also get rather noisy and distorted in a small space, making it hard for your guests to hear one another. Pianists or piano-led ensembles bring clarity to the wedding space with simplistic melodies that won’t tune anyone out.
A variety of tastes to choose from
Piano can be played in many varieties. It can classical or upbeat modern, and wordless or with a singer/band. The choice is yours depending on your interests.

With hundreds of perfect piano pieces to choose from, it can be hard to decide which ones are right for you wedding. Here are some of our favourites:

Singers or Bands with a Piano
If you’re looking for some romantic words to accompany a piano piece, then you might consider a pianist who can also sing or a piano-featured ensemble. There are plenty of classic and modern piano artists with lovely pieces to consider. Try piano artists like Norah Jones, Ben Folds or Regina Spektor to help you set the scene.
