Wedding Song with Copyright

      I just filmed a wedding and the bride really wants the song “Speechless” by Dan and Shay for her highlights film.

      There is no way I can legally use this without spending a ton of money on a copyright correct? How would one even attempt to attain a copyright for this one song?

      Thanks in advance

      Depends on where in the world you are, but in the UK, you contact PRS and take out a licence, and charge it on to the happy couple.

      In the U.S. contact a clearance house — for example — and secure a license. Be prepared for this to take quite a long time; it may! And as Paul says, pass the cost along to the happy couple. Be sure you have this transaction stipulated in a rider to your contract.
