Entrance of the bride
The bride is usually given away, traditionally by her father.

The music begins. After a few seconds, the bride enters on her father's arm. They walk slowly. A few brave people and children turn to watch as they walk down the aisle, but most just get a glimpse as she walks past.
The bride reaches the front. She stands savours enjoys the unique moment. The music plays a few seconds longer...

The traditional tune is Wagner's Bridal Chorus, otherwise known as Here Comes The Bride. It sounds great played by clarinet, guitar & double bass.

I like Here ComesThe Bride. As soon as we start playing it everyone knows exactly what is going on and there is great concentration and focus in the air.
