Ceremony Music – Religious Music

Your choice of hymns for your Wedding Ceremony will be very personal depending on your denomination and taste. You would be advised to choose hymns that are well known by the majority of your guests. There is nothing worse than a congregation trying to sing a hymn that they don’t know!

Your Priest or Minister should talk through the options with you, and help you to choose hymns for your Glasgow Wedding Ceremony which have inspiring words with a special meaning to you both.

It is always wise to hire a professional singer for your Ceremony who will lead the congregation and still sing, even if no one else does! He or she will also be able to advise you in choosing appropriate hymns, and will normally also be able to arrange other musicians for the Church for you.

The following is not an exhaustive but exemplar list of possible hymns for your Glasgow Wedding Ceremony, with some suggestions as to where each hymn may best fit.
