Wedding Ceremony Music – Advice From A Kent Wedding DJ
Choosing your own wedding ceremony music is a fantastic way to personalise your wedding ceremony.
If you are having a religious ceremony in a church you will be able to choose religious music your vicar or priest will be able to offer you advice on suitable music. Your church might have an organ and suitable organist to play the music you want or alternatively your Wedding DJ can provide a suitable PA system to play your chosen wedding ceremony music.
If you are having a civil wedding ceremony or civil partnership ceremony at an ‘approved premises’ – a venue licenced for celebrating marriages approved by Kent County Council – the music must be non-religious. The music chosen should not be offensive in the broad sense of the word – check with your registrar if you are uncertain – and can be contemporary or traditional to suit the style of wedding you are having.
