Hi, I only met with our wedding singer last week. We've decided on Oh Happy Days from Sister Act, cause we also wanted something upbeat.

We're having all you need is love, The Beatles, played by a string quartet. We did ask for the Beach Boys good vibrations but they can't do it.

We're having You Raise Me Up. Our celebrant would be a little unhappy with non religious songs, but we both really like this one and it has meaning for us.

My brother had Israel Kamakawiwoʻole Somewhere Over the Rainbow which was lovely, or what about LOVE by Nat King Cole, not sure how upbeat ya want to go, but the sentiment in these are lovely, Love is in the Air by John Paul Young is a gr8 tune aswell :bounce

We decided last night that we're gonna go with I'm a believer by the monkees :) Happy to have that sorted now!

december 2012 I don't think the time of year matters - go with something that you like and that means something to you.

Actually i told a lie! We are having higher and higher walking into the reception room. We are having somewhere over the rainbow at the end of the ceremony - the version by The Blanks from Scrubs, its a cool version!

Hi there,

Just saw this thread - from my experience of singing at civil ceremonies, a very popular choice for end of ceremony is from Elbow - "One Day Like This" as previously mentioned. Its a fantastic, upbeat song and the lyrics are amazing.
If you need some ideas on what you would like, please feel free to check my list of songs for civil ceremonies on my webiste. :brideandgroom1

Best of luck
