The Wedding Service

Everything you need to know about planning your wedding service starts here. At St. George's the wedding service is found in the Book of Alternative Services

There are lots of ways however to personalize your wedding that will make the service uniquely yours. You may choose:

  • Who will be in the wedding party processional and in which order they will enter the church

  • Whether you'd like to hire a musician or use recorded music throughout the service

  • If and which hymns you'd like sung during the service

  • Which Bible readings you'd like to be read

  • Which of your family or friends will do the readings
  • Special prayer requests


The Order of Service

A wedding in the Anglican Church always includes at least one Bible reading, though you may also include other readings from the Bible that have significance to you. Here you will find a selection of passages from the Bible that are suited to a wedding ceremony.
