Religious music is not permitted at civil ceremonies, so many couples opt for classical music or opera for the big day. If this isn't your thing why not choose a modern-day love song that means something to you and your partner? Here is our pick of contemporary wedding music:

Have I Told You Lately? ¤ Van Morrison
From This Moment On ¤ Shania Twain
Songbird ¤ Eva Cassidy
The One ¤ Elton John
I'll Be There ¤ Jackson 5
Truly Madly Deeply ¤ Savage Garden
