We have a few places we like to go first for great passionate music in a wedding video.
Underscore for a Romantic Comedy – many of these tracks can be useful. Some are more cinematic than others but depending on your film, you usually need some drama.
Love and Passionate music – these will certainly work for the big kiss or the montage of the family.
Wedding Films Music – very specific
Cinematic Action and Drama – These are useful when you need to open with a bang or have a real dramatic arc from action/suspense to the romantic coupling.
And here’s some really cool soundtracks we love and how we’d use them in a wedding film.
- Come On – By Marco Ricciardi – Action montage of fast-forward video of the big day preparation. Or how about the tuxedo fittings for the guys?
- Dual Quads by Robert Wayne Johnson – Again, high energy track for perhaps a montage of the events leading up to the ceremony.
- Chevauche – by Jerome Lamasset – background lounge music when the couple describes their first romantic date.
- Cha Cha Cha – by Alex Khaskin – a very humorous piece of music that evokes couples dancing, quirkiness and a bit of the MadMen 1950’s vibe. Use this for the comedic sequence leading up to how the families got together, or the bloopers reel or even the credit sequence.
- Just When I Had Given Up On Men – by Jeneen Terrana – a love song from the Bride’s point of view. How the couple met. She was swept off her feet!
- Crazy Swedes by Colin Willsher- this is so funny. Great for use under the montage showing the quirky strange relatives of the groom?
- Beethoven’s Minuet in G Major – a solo piano piece. Use this for a wide panning shot of the beautiful gardens reserved for the wedding.
