Suggested Wedding Hymns

If you book the choir, they will lead the singing in the wedding hymns that you have chosen and they will usually sing an anthem during the signing of the registers unless you prefer organ music.

You may like to choose something from the following list or contact us if you have other ideas.

Choir anthems
Any hymn in the green hymnbook (Hymns Old and New, New Anglican Edition).

The hymns that you choose for your wedding (two or three) are usually from either the Wedding Book or the green hymn book (Hymns Old and New, New Anglican Edition). If you wish to have a hymn that is not in the book, please provide copies of the words for both the congregation and the choir. This may mean obtaining permission from the publisher if the words are in copyright. If you print your own order of service and you wish to print copyright words (any text of a living author or an author who has been dead for less than 70 years), you will need permission from the publisher. If an order of service is being produced, please provide 15 copies for the choir to use during the service. Copies without an outside cover are perfectly acceptable for this. A list of the most popular hymns at weddings taken from the Hymns Old and New (green hymn book) is given below. Here are some mp3 wedding hymn samples, played by Philip Russell
