    "Wedding Song (There Is Love)" is a title of a 1971 hit single by Paul Stookey. The song has since been recorded by many singers (with versions by Petula Clark and Mary MacGregor returning the song to the Billboard Hot 100)—and remains a popular choice for performance at weddings.

    Stookey had first performed the song at the wedding of Peter Yarrow—Stookey's co-member of Peter Paul & Mary—to Mary Beth McCarthy at Saint Mary's Catholic Church in Willmar, Minnesota. Stookey was best man at the ceremony, which took place in the evening of October 18, 1969.

    Stookey recorded "Wedding Song (There Is Love)" for his solo album Paul and, which was released on July 23, 1971. On this recording he accompanied himself on a 12-string guitar tuned a tone and a half down. On June 28, 1971, "Wedding Song" was issued as advance single from the Paul and album to reach #24 on the Hot 100 in Billboard and reached #3 on the Easy Listening chart. Internationally, Stookey reached #31 in Canada and #55 in Australia with "Wedding Song".
