Instrumental Wedding Music for voice-over

I've been wanting to do some highlight videos with some voice over of speech, and I've seen alot of videos out there with some great instrumental string/guitar/piano pieces that play underneath the voice over of the officiant or other speaker's voice. Can someone point me in the direction of a few places to get some of this music from?

I know there has to be a place that specializes in this kind of mellow music. I've searched various royalty free music sites but nothing really hits quite as well as some of the ones I've seen from some of the bigger wedding film outfits that post on here. Thanks.

Hey Paul. I personally enjoy hunting for little gems that can be used for exactly what you are looking for. I have several sites I search through to start off with.

Triple Scoop Music : Award-winning music licensing for photographers, videographers and creative professionals!
Tune Society: Production & Media Music Community - Royalty-free
Royalty Free Stock Music & Stock Audio - AudioJungle
With Etiquette

I hope this helps. A few of the sites have great search funtionality and the others you just have to search a lot. Enjoy!

Hi Paul

I use SmartSound and the quality and genres are the best I have ever used BUT you do have to buy the libraries or songs you need.

If it's purely for non-profit use then you might also like to do a search for FreePlay Music...only thing is Their clips only come in 15/30/60 and full song lengths!! With Smartsound you can generate the exact length you need so it always sound very professional when the music has an "ending" at the end!!!
