The Popularity of the Wedding March
|Mendelssohn - portrait by James Warren Childe.|
This stately piece of music became popular at wedding ceremonies after it was chosen by Victoria, The Princess Royal and daughter of Queen Victoria, for her marriage to Prince Frederick William of Prussia in 1858. Queen Victoria was a great admirer of Mendelssohn's music - he often played for the Royal Family while on his visits to Britain.
