Wedding service sheets

A service booklet is provided by the church which includes all the words of the service and a selection of commonly sung hymns. In addition to the booklet many couples choose to have a service sheet printed including hymns.

Suggested Outline Order of Service

  • Entrance of the Bride
  • Welcome
  • 1st Hymn
  • The Marriage
  • Reading from the bible
  • (Other readings)
  • 2nd Hymn *
  • Prayers and Blessing
  • 3rd Hymn
  • Signing of the Register
  • Bride and Groom exit

*If two hymns only are to be used, this one is omitted.

From our experience often there are too few printed service sheets and we would ask that you use our versions of the hymns in the event that we have to give out hymn books. Thus we will all quite literally be singing from the same hymn sheet!  If you intend to have these printed, do allow plenty of time. Three weeks before your wedding is a good rule of thumb if you are using a professional printer.

If you are using modern hymns, the chances are that they are still copyright. You will need to ask your printer to print somewhere the following
