We now offer more versions of this classic wedding song from the Princess Bride movie. Our Bridal Processional version starts immediately on the main theme, making it a perfect fit for your wedding processional use.
In the original and longer version, sutied for preludes, postludes, and receptions, there is 1 minute of music before we hear the familiar theme that makes us involuntarily smile! However, if we are to stand and gaze at the bride in her loveliness as she begins the journey to join the wedding party, I think we want to immediately hear that familiar theme playing. So I rerecorded the song without the first minute of the original score and we now have instant gratification! Also, the ending is shortened a bit so there is a more natural musical connection with the bride arriving at the altar.
This Mark Knopfler composed piece is such a beauty – is it possible that we would have loved it as much if it were not an integral part of the movie, forever “wed” together in our consciousness? Inconceivable!
Also known as the Theme from Princess Bride, Storybook Love is available for download on our Wedding Processionals Sampler (Brides and Bridesmaids) album. It is one of my personal favorites on our site – I hope you decide to use it in your wedding, and I hope that the poignant and special memories that so many of us have when we think of the movie will be carried over to your own beautiful wedding day.
