Richard Wagner wrote one of the most famous wedding marches - with this tutorial, you can be the musician on any wedding!

The “Bridal Chorus” (original German title: "Treulich geführt") is the most famous piece from Richard Wagner's opera "Lohengrin", which premiered in 1850. The song is also known as "Here Comes the Bride" or "Wedding March" and became one of the most played processional songs at weddings (usually played during the bride's entrance).

One of Richard Wagner’s contemporaries who saw and loved this opera was King Ludwig II of Bavaria, also known as "the Fairy-tale King", who built the famous castle “Neuschwanstein”, which really looks like a fairy-tale castle!

The lyrics, of course, are a celebration of the wedding, of the couple, bride and groom. Here’s a translation:

“Faithfully guided, draw near to where the blessing of love shall preserve you! Triumphant courage, the reward of love, joins you in faith as the happiest of couples! Champion of virtue, proceed! Jewel of youth, proceed! Flee now the splendour of the wedding feast, may the delights of the heart be yours!

This sweet-smelling room, decked for love, now takes you in, away from the splendour. Faithfully guided, draw now near to where the blessing of love shall preserve you! Triumphant courage, love so pure, joins you in faith as the happiest of couples!”
