You may wish to have ‘non-hymn type’ music for the following times in the ceremony;


* Bride walking down the aisle at the beginning

* Signing of the register

* New husband and wife walking out at the end


For walking down the aisle and signing of the register it tends to be reflective pieces of music while a more joyful or triumphant style of piece is used for you both walking down the aisle at the end.


Listed are some suggestions which you could type into youtube to hear. You also have the option of replacing the offertory hymn with a piece of music so if there are three pieces from the reflective list below you quite like, then you could consider sacrificing a hymn at offertory to give it a place in the ceremony.


15 to 20 minutes before the ceremony starts, background music would be played for guests so if you have any other favourites that can’t be fitted in to the ceremony then they can be played at that point.


If you have requests just ask.
