Wedding music! It’s a tricky one to get right. Everyone’s looking for that perfect composition to walk down the aisle to, or a truly meaningful song to make the first dance memorable. The old classics still live on, but occasionally a new song comes out that just fits perfectly for that special moment.
It’s only January, but my early pick for 2020 is this brilliant track by the uber-talented Tom Walker. It’s called “Better Half of Me” and you can hear my acoustic version here:
Tom Walker has such a strong, rich tone to his voice and he really puts some power into his vocals! My style is definitely a lot more laid back, so I wanted to put together a relaxed version of this song which would perfectly fit a wedding ceremony or first dance.
I can just imagine that moment when the groom first sets eyes on his bride walking down the aisle, with the beautiful lyrics of the song: “I’d have all I need… if you were standing right in front of me… I finally see what it means to be complete”
Fits perfectly, don’t you think?
This tune is definitely going to be a top pick this year I think, and I can’t wait to play it at weddings in 2020!

I’ll be getting some new professional videos filmed later this year, but in the meantime I’m going to be putting a new live acoustic song on my YouTube channel every Tuesday. Not only will this help me get lots more of my music online, it also gives you guys the chance to make song suggestions and get involved!
The #tuesdaytune could be something new I’m learning for an upcoming wedding… it could be a classic song I love playing, or a request.
Search #tuesdaytune on Social Media or leave a comment on one of my YouTube videos to make a request – I’ve had lots of great song requests come in already so am putting together a list. Let me know if there’s something you’d like to hear!

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve just released my first album of acoustic wedding songs! I’ve picked nine of my most requested tracks, and two versions of the acoustic bridal chorus – one full length and one shortened version, at just under a minute long it’s perfect for the walk down the aisle.
