Music in a Christian Wedding Service:

A Catholic Wedding Ceremony derives much of its beauty from the music performed for each part of the service. It is valued because it helps the congregation pray together. As St. Augustine said, “He who sings, prays twice.” We have a comprehensive list of hymns & songs that you could need to make your wedding memorable. All we ask, as a matter of courtesy, is that after we have chosen music together, you discuss your choices with your celebrant.

The amount of music sung at your wedding depends on the style of ceremony you are having. Should you choose to have a Short Service without the Sacrament of the Eucharist, you would generally only need songs. You do not need any hymns other than perhaps a Responsorial Psalm (this is optional between the first & second readings, it generally breaks up the monotony of the readings). If you are having a full service with the Sacrament of the Eucharist, you must choose hymns that will suit the right time of the mass.

Below is a list of songs to choose from, you must choose 4 songs from this list for your wedding:

1 for Entrance,

2 for Signing of the Register and

1 for Exit.

Please Note: You can mix & match all of these songs. It’s your choice. We can help you when you come to choose music, if there’s a song you don’t know, we will be happy to sing it for you at the meeting.

If there is a song that you have heard & like, please don’t hesitate to bring a copy with you, be it on CD or the sheet music & we’ll try to learn it for your wedding.

When you’ve completed choosing your music, remember to fill in the booking form with all the details for your wedding.
