Wedding music in France
for your bespoke church mass or symbolic secular ceremony

Bonjour, I’m Ariane the English speaking Provence officiant singer. This is my wedding music in France repertoire. These are all the songs I can sing during your symbolic wedding ceremony or your catholic ceremony in church. As a classical crossover singer, I sing classical music as well as gospel or contemporary song. Although classically trained, I can “colour” my voice to suit the mood and style of the song being sung. In conclusion, my style is French, glamorous and elegant.

wedding music in France Aria

Accompaniment options:

a capella, orchestral sound track or other instruments as you choose (string quartet, piano, harp, jazz band…) on quotation.


I’m also happy to discuss special requests. If you would like a piece of wedding music in France that is not part of the repertoire, please let me know the title. Should I feel the song suitable for my voice, and able to obtain the score & musical accompaniment, then I’m happy to learn the song especially for your at no extra charge. 

The role of music during your wedding ceremony

aria in France wedding celebrant singer

During your wedding ceremony, there are a number of places where music may be appropriate.  The timing, amount and choices of music will depend on whether your wedding is religious or not, the order of proceedings, and most importantly your personal taste and the type of mood you wish to create.

Where during the ceremony can you have music?

The possibilities are endless it is really up to you and your priest/registrar/ celebrant/humanist minister  but here’s a few suggestions:

  • Before the Bride arrives Prelude music announce the entrance of the Bride
  • Bridal Entrance walking down the aisle ((Processional)
  • Congregrational Hymns (in a church wedding) I’m often asked to sing a solo piece of music to replace a reading or congregation hymn
  • During Communion/Mass if your ceremony is a full Nuptial Mass
  • During symbolic rituals as Unity Candle
  • A musical reflection, inserted anywhere you feel appropriate
  • After the vows and after the ring exchange
  • Ave Maria during the french traditional bouquet to virgin Mary
  • Signing of the Register or symbolic certificate
  • Walking back down the aisle as man and wife (recessional)

Children who attend my ceremonies call me “the fairy”:

I can take you further than you can imagine…
