If the recent Triple J’s Hottest 100 is anything to go by, the Aussie music scene is teeming with beloved tunes, both old and new, that can double as the perfect alternative wedding entrance song.
CHATEAU - ANGUS AND JULIA STONE
This tune by the always angelic Angus and Julia Stone possesses their trademark folky dreaminess and came in at #3 on Triple J’s Hottest 100. If it’s good enough for the Australian public, then it’s probably good enough for your family and friends.
FIRE AND THE FLOOD - VANCE JOY
This slow-burn indie ballad culminates in a soaring chorus and bridge. With romantic lyrics such as “Everything is fine / When your hand is resting next to mine / You’re the fire and the flood”, it’s a no-brainer for your wedding entrance song.
RESOLUTION - MATT CORBY
Despite being five years olds now, ‘Resolution’ is arguably one of Australia’s most beloved local indie tracks. After shedding his Australian Idol past, the rugged Matt Corby wooed crowds with this Triple J favourite. The slow tempo combined with Matt’s powerhouse vocals ensure it’ll be a wedding entrance to remember.
HOLD - VERA BLUE
Vera Blue’s Mariah Carey-esque vocal range guarantees your family and friends will be sporting goosebumps in record time; combine that with your stunning bridal gown and you’ve got yourself a winning combination.
SWEET DISPOSITION - THE TEMPER TRAP
At its core, Sweet Disposition is about finding the fleeting moments of beauty in life - romantic, right? So why not inject some nostalgia into your wedding with this sweeping melody by indie favourites The Temper Trap?
ALL I WANT IS YOU - BALL PARK MUSIC
For a cheekier wedding entrance song, ‘All I Want Is You’ by Ball Park Music strikes the perfect balance of humour and romance. With lyrics such as ‘I had to stop at every single red light’ and then ‘In ten years, come and see where I am / I’ll be standing with my girl and you will all be lonely’ in the same verse, this may be the most relatable Aussie song in years. It will have your guests simultaneously giggling and crying tears of joy with this alternative wedding track.
