The best last dance songs for your wedding

Hodsock Priory has hosted some incredible weddings over the years and, when it comes to parties, there really is no better venue that our luxurious, exclusive-use country house. Surrounded by acres of gorgeous Nottinghamshire countryside, a wedding at Hodsock feels like having your own stately home for the day ­– so do it in style with the party to end all parties! Buchanan Hall offers plenty of space to dance the night away, and our House Bar is the coolest, intimate setting for a drinks reception. We love the growing trend for ending the night on a massive high with a memorable last day. Whether you want a tune to fill the dancefloor or an epic number to sing along to at the top of your voices with your guests, these are the best last dance songs for your wedding, that are guaranteed crowd-pleasers.
