2010's

Our Pick: Yours – Ella Henderson 

Still popular, but not overdone, Ella Henderson’s ‘Yours’ becomes our number one pick for modern First Dance Songs. The lyrics speak for themselves, and Henderson’s voice remains soft yet passionate. We recommend the acoustic version for a more old-school romance feel. 

Other great hits:

2000's

Our Pick: Una Mattina - Ludovico Einaudi

Unexpectedly, our pick for the 2000s is classical number Una Mattina. Going against the pop era that was the naughties, Una Mattina is a old-school, romantic, feel good piece created by Italian Ludovico Einaudi. Made famous by French movie Les Intouchables, the song is beautiful and eloquent piece of art. We recommend a live pianist, or a mix with your choice of vocals for a unique twist.

Our Pick: Greatest Love of All – Whitney Houston

We could tell you why but her voice says it all! A friend of the late songwriter, Creed, described her success with this song stating ‘there are a thousand ways to say ‘I love you’, and the difficulty is trying to find a nuance, a new way to say something that's been said a thousand times, and Linda Creed is someone who was able to do that.’
