Choosing hymns for your church wedding might feel like a daunting task. What words do you want your guests singing in unison as you and your love stand at the alter together? Your best bet is to choose hymns that are meaningful to you. Was there a hymn that your Nan always hummed while making her homemade custard tart? Do you have memories of your Grandad belting out the words to ‘Amazing Grace’ on a Sunday morning in the church pew. Are there words that resound true for you still as you listen to the lyrics of a hymn? If so go with those. They will flood your service with meaning, memories and depth as you all join to sing together. And if you have no idea where to start, we’re here to help you. This could be the beginning of making hymns a meaningful part of family traditions within your new family, and having something as timeless as a simple tune to pass down for generations.
