This makes for a beautiful first dance song, and as everyone looks on in wonder at the happy couple singing this to each other, it will be a miracle if there is a dry eye in the house by the end.
This is a more modern song (2017) and one that is particularly tear jerking for anyone with kids. This song was written by Robbie for his children and is a beautiful, positive tune that paints a picture of Robbie’s love and dreams for his family. This is especially perfect for a wedding where the couple themselves already have children.
Just the opening couple of bars of this classic song will be enough to give many of your guests a lump in the throat. This song has no doubt been played at nearly every wedding since its release and so it will evoke strong memories with subsequent tears for your older guests.

All of Me was written by John Legend for his wife on their wedding day. The first time it was sung in public was after he had said I do!

Weddings are about more than just the happy couple. They are about family, friends and love. Sometimes a wedding can be tinged with sadness if an important member of the family has died.
