Music for your Wedding

Music plays a very important part in your Wedding.

It is customary to have:

  • organ music played for the entrance of the Bride
  • organ music for the Wedding March at the end
  • 2 to 3 hymns or songs during the service (please see suggested hymns on next page)
  • organ music or choir during the signing of the register
  • Please note that St Mary’s Choir is on holiday in August but we will do our very best to help you

Our clergy and our organist will be only too pleased to advise you. The following are only suggestions, and you need not feel limited by them. Any special requests should be cleared in plenty of time with the organist and the minister taking the service.
