An Introduction to Resources for your Wedding Service
Planning your wedding service
This part of our website is to help couples plan their wedding service. This information will also form the basis of our Wedding preparation evening.
The choice of whether to use the 'traditional' or 'modern' wedding service is up to the couple. You will find the full text of these, and of the service of Blessing after a Civil Marriage, on the Church of England Liturgy website. http://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-worship/worship/texts/pastoral/marriage.aspx.
