Where to Put Music in a Catholic Wedding Ceremony

I’m often asked where music needs to go during a catholic wedding so here you go!

Processional
Individual candle ceremony
Psalm
Alleluia
Lighting of Unity Candle
Offertory
Holy Holy
Ar n’Athair
Sign of Peace
Communion (choose 2 pieces)
Signing of Register (choose 2 pieces)
Recessional

You don’t necessarily need music at all the parts above and not everyone has the candle ceremony. If you do have the candles, it should either be a short instrumental piece or something that you can just sing a verse of as it only takes a minute.

the register time varies hugely depending on the photographer – select at least two pieces but I recommend you don’t put your favourite music here as you just won’t hear it – you’ll either be out in the sacristy signing or you’ll have the photographer talking to you on the altar.
