We are getting married in January. Are looking for traditional and non-traditional Celtic wedding music and songs. We will have friends (guitar, mandolin, harmonica, piano) playing for us. Also, can anyone give us any suggestions on places (web as well as non-web) to find Celtic music? We are both part of the McGregor clan. Thanks for all help. Cathy

Hi Cathy,

Just type the words celtic wedding in the Digitrad and Forum Search box and you should get all kinds of songs, ideas and discussions.

Here are several to get you started.Songs for a Scottish Wedding

there is a nice piece to the tune of "Be Thou My Vision" called "God in the Planning" if you happen to like a Christain type song
God in the planning & purpose of life hallowed the union of husband & wife, this we embody where love is displayed rings are presented & promises made (the first verse of it)

Weel, wee McGregor -[-:)]---someone has given you excellent pointers to the wedding songs, but if ye want to extol the Great Clan, how about "MacGregor's Gathering"? " The moon's on the lake, and there's mist on the brae 'and the Clan bears a name that stays nameless by day 'Our signal for fight which from monarchs we drew, "still is heard, but by night in a vengeful 'Hallooo!"

I haven't checked the index---but it'll be hiding there somewhere---

How about "Give Me Your Hand"?

One waltz we have used quite a bit for weddings is "Two Rivers" by Larry Unger, although it's a modern piece. Another is "Rain In the Desert" by Liz Donaldson

We've used "Prince William" for a processional in a couple of weddings, and people seem to like it. I believe this one's in the Fiddler's Fakebook.

I'm fed up of saying his, but Mhairh is pronounced VARRIE in Scotland and (usually) MOIRA in Ireland.

On the other hand, a good wedding song to sing to a friend is May You Never by John Martyn - that's what it was written for
