Our Top 20 First Dance Songs

We might be biased, but for us, music is at the very heart of a wedding reception. It fills the celebrations with life, love and emotion. The songs that you play on the night tell your story as a couple, represent special moments in your lives, as well as your tastes, energy levels and the songs that make you happiest!

And at no point is it quite as potent as the first dance. Whenever we’re invited to provide the entertainment for a ceremony, we love finding out what the couple have chosen to use as the song for their first dance.
