If you choose hymns from the hymn book, and check that there are enough hymn books you can manage without an order of service.


*If you don’t want the bride’s father or supporter to give her away you can substitute the alternative question instead of ‘who brings this woman to marry this man?’. Instead you can ask: ‘Will you, the family and friends of N and N support and uphold them now and in the years to come?’. Answer ‘We will’.


If you would like to include this in your wedding service please make sure that you include it on your wedding order of service so people know what to say and when.
