Wedding Music Guide 

If you are recently engaged, a big congratulations to you and your beloved!!!

This is a very exciting time for you both, and it will be a joy for me to sing at your wedding, if you choose me as your professional singer. My commitment to you is to enhance the solemnity of the occasion of your marriage with the high quality of music it deserves.

Here is a recommended list of suitable pieces (for the ceremony and signing of the register) that you may find helpful when choosing the music for your special day:

There are several parts of the Catholic Marriage Ceremony which usually have music:

1. Bridal procession/Entrance,

2. Lighting of the individual candles,

3. Responsorial psalm (between the 2 readings),

4. Lighting of the unity candle,

5. Offerfory; presentation of the gifts,

6. Communion (usually 2 hymns),

7. Signing of the register,

8. Recessional,

9. Organ instrumental.

{The organist will play some light background music up until the Bridal Procession to set the beautiful atmosphere suitable to the occasion. There are also various Mass parts if you would like them sung, such as the Gospel Acclamation, Sanctus, Memorial Acclamation, Agnus Dei}.

Here's a recommended list (as a sample) for each of the 9 above:
