alex@alkbarr: Any recommendations for classical music to be played on a church organ for a wedding?

Lots, Alex – there’s a really informative Step by Step Guide to Wedding Music here on the Classic FM website with lots of good organ music ideas. I’ve got a special favourite, which is the Wedding March from Mendelssohn’s incidental music to A Midsummer Night’s Dream. And a top tip – if you want to include that glorious celebratory Toccata by Widor, make sure the organist can really play it. I once went to a wedding where all we got was the chords, not the fabulous twiddly tune in the top part!
