May the music move you…
Featuring the wedding of Thomas & Melicha who tied the knot at the lovely d’Wingerdskuur on the 6th of October 2018. The wedding was photographed by Liz-mari Marais Photography. Additional ncweddings vendors were the flowers done by I do and make-up by Clinic Juline.
Music – “vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.”
The language of life. Spoken softly and sweetly. Spoken angrily and harsh. Spoken fearlessly and brave. Spoken with forgiveness and love. Often spoken with regret. More often spoken with romance. But spoken none the less with words we often fail to voice. Explaining exactly that which we sometimes cannot say. And if it is not being spoken, it is creating. Creating an atmosphere, an ambience, feelings. Colouring the backdrop to this life’s moments, enhancing every emotion. That is music…
And when it comes to your special day be sure to have songs that compliment every moment.
Now there arebeautiful and breathtaking songs – take John Legend’sAll of Mefor instance, nothing better fit for such a special occasion. It still moves me every time. That is exactly what music should do. To me it isn’t just a song, a beat or rhythm; it’s the poetry that opens up the book to your new life together – it is about the melody, the lyrics, the instruments and the message that is being portrayed. So yes, Mr. Legend is legend when it comes to love songs, yet it has become almost cliché. So here are some daring, unconventional, authentic, amazing, not-at-every-wedding, perfect songs to take the first steps to becoming Mrs. (or to dancing in the night as the Mrs.)
May the music move you.
