Suitable Wedding Music

Choosing the right music is an important part of preparing for your service. You are welcome to discuss your particular choices with the organist.

If you do not specify, the organist will choose one of the traditional pieces of music for the entrance of the bride (processional) and as you leave the church at the end of the service (recessional).

During the signing of the Register

The organist will be happy to choose something appropriate to play, or you may like to invite a singer or a musician whom you know. We can play a CD or other recording in church if you wish. Please discuss your ideas with the vicar.
