They incorporated a sand ceremony, taking two bottles of sand of different colours, and pouring them into a new container together, forming a unique design that is impossible to separate. It's highly symbolic, and also something different to lighting candles, where you have something you can keep forever after the ceremony is over!
Here is the music we played for the ceremony=
Entrance: All You Need Is Love
During the Sand Ceremony: How Long Will I Love You
Signing of Register: Nothing Else Matters
Recessional: It Must Be Love
The brief for the drinks reception was "the madder the better", so we played all our AC/DC, Guns 'n' Roses, Metallica, Queens of the Stone Age, everything we could find that wasn't pop or classical! We had a great time and got loads of compliments from guests who admired the selection of music that was a bit different from what they'd normally hear. Thank you for having us and congratulations!!
