“Your Unique Love Story Set to Original Music” Micki Findlay - Composer

(Worldwide Service)



Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I would like to help you make it an event to remember…a celebration that touches the hearts of everyone there and lives long in the memories of every person involved in your special day. I will write your own, personal wedding song that tells YOUR STORY. I will work closely with you in gathering important details of how you met, how you chose each other, what you appreciate about one another and so on, and ensure that your song reflects who you are as a couple and as individuals. You will be given a tastefully framed version of your song as a keepsake so as to ensure your story continues to be shared for all time.


“I believe music to be a miracle. It is a language all its own. It opens the heart and communicates to the soul of the person, where words alone, often fail to reach. I just want to be a part of that miracle and to share it with others.” Micki Findlay



My service is also perfect for the Renewing of Vows and Anniversaries

"What people are saying"
"When planning our daughter's wedding, we wanted to include something very unique and special as part of the wedding reception... a custom wedding song. We wanted that song to be personalized for the bride and groom, reflecting their journey to their all-important day. And we wanted to keep this secret until the reception itself. But we didn't know where to start. Then we learned of Micki Findlay ( www.weddings.tickleberry telegrams.com ) Right away, we knew that we found the person who could make our dreams a reality.

Micki made the experience of creating the song so easy. First of all, a questionnaire guided us through capturing the information we wanted to share with the special couple and their guest. We identified the genre of music we were thinking about. A number of email communications followed as we narrowed the focus of the song down.

Micki shared the lyrics for our approval, then she moved into the production phase. We we absolutely thrilled with the song that Micki provided us for approval again before creating the actual CDs. The vocals were just breath-taking.

We wanted to provide wedding guests with the personalized song CDs as a wedding favour and Micki went out of her way to accommodate this. We provided a number of photos of the couple and Micki helped us select the best ones for the front and back cover. Shipping was taken care of very quickly and the CDs were presented in an absolutely professional manner!

We were thrilled with our experience working with Micki. At the wedding reception, in conjunction with the speeches, we played the song. Our youngest daughter created a slideshow to accompany it. The song, titled "Your Journey Has Just Begun" was met with total surprise and excitement. Guests were thrilled that the song reflected Kim and Matt's personalities so well. They raved about it for weeks afterwards. The bride and groom were amazed and delighted to have such a tangible keepsake of their big day. I'm very happy to recommend Micki to anyone considering a custom song for a wedding or any other special event. She was a pleasure to deal with and the final song exceeded all of our expectations. "
