Music for your wedding

It is traditional for the bride to walk into church to a piece of music and for the couple to walk out to a different piece. Either or both may be played live, or from recorded music.

The norm is for 3 hymns, the first should be easy to sing, not too loud or too high (some of your guests might be a bit out of practice!), the last should be stiring and joyful. The middle hymn can be either.

During the signing of the registers you can choose a piece to be played on the organ, or the choir (if you have them) can sing an anthem. If you have friends who play an instrument or sing you might like to ask them to consider performing during this part of the service. Recorded music is also an option.

Our Rector and our organists will be able to help you with your choices.
