Music for your Wedding
The Organ is the main instument in our Churches and its use is calculated with the wedding fee. We will provide an Organist to play, however you are free to invite a family member or friend to play if you wish, the fee charged will then cover the use of the organ and go into the organ fund account.
You may have one, two or three Hymns during your wedding service.
We can also offer the services of our United Benefice Choir for your Marriage Service, or you can arrange for your own choir or other musicians or soloists. It is always good to involve family or friends in your marriage service, so making it personal to you
Music played before the Bride arrives is often left to the discretion of the Organist. However, if you would like something special played, please discuss this with him.
We do not recommend the use of CDs or IPods to provide music during the service.
