If you’re marrying in church, you’ll need to choose at least two hymns, and possibly up to four, depending on the length of the service. Your minister or the church music director will be able to make suggestions, but here are some of our favourites. If most of your guests aren’t regular church goers, try to stick to more well known choices with easy tunes. Remember, some words are associated with more than one tune, so do make sure that if you have a favourite, the organist knows which tune you’re expecting.
For civil ceremonies, don’t forget that you won’t be allowed songs or music with any religious connotations. If you’re not sure whether a certain piece is allowed, check with the registrar beforehand to avoid disappointment on the day.
