Editing a wedding video - need song recommendations

I am editing a wedding video for my cousin and need help with choosing a song. I originally chose Kingdom Come by Coldplay but realized it was a live recording and I could hear voices from the audience.

Is there a version that's been recorded in the studio? If not I need recommendation to a song that is:
that's not cliche'd and obvious that is mostly used in wedding videos
Preferrably same instrument used in Kingdom Come song (just a guitar? but sounds modern). I don't know what they used. I have no clue when it comes to music.

Thanks, any help is appreciated.

Um, the version of Kingdom Come from the album X&Y is not a live recording - so if you're set on using the song, just use the real version of the song.

Kingdom Come is actually a hidden bonus track on X&Y.

I did a video for my best friends' wedding. Right after they were married and the wedding party departs, I used the song "From the Morning" by Nick Drake. It was an outdoor wedding and it was sunny out and the song just fit perfectly. They were moved to tears when they saw that part of the video
