From Disney songs to chart-toppers, Benjamin Clarke, The Wedding Pianist, reveals the top unusual choices for first dance songs…
“There have been times when someone’s request has made me raise an eyebrow, but a first dance is supposed to be personal. If it makes you ask why and there’s a story behind it, it’s much more interesting and romantic. These days people want their wedding to be totally different. They choose first dance songs that represents them as a couple no matter how unconventional it may seem”, Benjamin Clarke explains.
“More and more often I’m asked to perform slower versions of modern hits. So many people want the ‘Live Lounge’ feel and choose up to date songs to put a traditional twist on,” says Benjamin.
