Wedding Order of Service Template
It is important to speak with your vicar or priest when starting to think about your order of service and to agree the content you’d like to include in your wedding ceremony.
To most couples this is the most important part of the day and a lot of thought should be given to the readings and hymns you’d like to include. If you are unsure your vicar or priest will be able to help out and advise on the hymns and readings which will be in keeping with the joyful celebration of your wedding day.
Your church or chapel will have their own preferred order for the marriage ceremony but we have put together a template which is the most popular format for a Church of England Wedding and this can be easily tweaked by your vicar if necessary.
Take a look at our range of wedding order of service books offered with paper inserts to accommodate your service.

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
