12. Civil ceremony music: love poetry
Many couples opt for a special poem or reading that's significant to both of them, but many of these have been set to music. If you're a fan of the Bard, Quilter's Shakespeare settings have lovely pastoral tunes, and many of his folk songs are suitably sentimental. Little Tree, Judith Weir's setting of three e. e. cummings poems, includes a beautiful love song called 'I carry your heart with me'.
