WEDDING SERVICE CHECK LIST
What music will the Bride enter the church to?
Is lively with a good rhythm? The organist may play it or you can use recorded tracks.
Will the Bridesmaids (and Pageboys) can go in before the Bride or after?
Its what you would like.. There’s no right or wrong.
Is one of the Bridesmaids ready to sort out your veil or train if you’re wearing one?
Is one of the Bridesmaids ready to take you bouquet and look after it until you ready to walk out at the end of the service?
What hymns would you like?
2 or 3 work best. Look on the Church of England web site for hymn suggestions, and you see the words and hear the tunes, too. There’s lots of other info on this site too.
What scripture reading would you like?
Who will read it? It can be the minister but it could be a friend or family member. You can see some scripture readings on the same CofE web site
Do you want another reading or poem?
There are lots to choose from! And who will read it?
Who bringing the rings and looking after them?
It’s usually the best man but it could be someone else!
Have you asked at least 2 adults to sign as witness in the registers?
They must be 18 years old or over. You could have 3 or 4.
Do you want music whilst the registers are being signed?
This could be on the organ, recorded tracks, or a life musician, band or a singer.
What music do you want to walk out to?
Again, it needs to be lively, upbeat and with a definite rhythm!
You are welcome to have photographs and or video during the service. We simply ask that the official photographers keep to the guidelines - each church is slightly different so we will explain that to them before the service. (Please remember that copyright law applies to videos.
Finally, whilst we want to cooperate as much as possible
please remember that the church is public place
and so we might not be able to customise in the way a commercial venue might!
