Garrett DeWyse – Bagpiper
To The Wedding Party,
When requested to play the Highland Bagpipes at a Wedding, there are many options; playing the bride in, playing the couple out of the church, playing before the service, during the service (at the lighting of the unity candle for example) and even as the guests are leaving the church or at the reception. Whatever the couple/family wishes.
The traditional and most common tunes requested when a couple is walking out of the church are Mairi’s Wedding, Ode to Joy, or Irish Eyes Are Smiling. Listed below are a few marches, jigs and appropriate songs that you may want to consider.
Ode to Joy
Pipe Major Bob Browns Farewell to the Ballochuie
Scotland the Brave
When Irish Eyes Are Smiling
Craigs of Tumble Down the Mountain
Corhilie’s Welcome to the Northern Meeting
March of the Champions Supreme
Green Hills of Tyrol
JIGS: These are more lively tunes!
Paddy’s Leather Breaches
Amazing Grace (this is not as appropriate for a wedding)
I hope that this has been helpful when planning for your important day.
