robjay:  We had a traditional Church of England wedding, which meant that our ceremony followed a set structure and we said the traditional vows. However, we still did a lot to personalise our ceremony and a lot of our guests commented on how nice it was:

-my friend played the organ

– we chose the hymns

– we chose the readings which we were read by 2 of our closest friends (one from the Bible, one non-religious)

– one of our bridesmaids sang a solo

– one of DH’s cousins also sang a solo, which was composed by one of my uncles

– 3 of our bridesmaids, my dad and our friend sang an anthem as a quintet

For us the ceremony was the most important part of the day (it’s why everyone is there after all!) so we put a lot of effort into choosing everything. The music was also really important to me. Hope this gives you some ideas!

robjay:  I am having friends sing at the ceremony.  One in particular grew up in the church I’m now getting married in, so he was so touched when I asked him to sing.  My friends are very talented!

My FI and I love cruising… we cruise at least twice a year and love being at sea.  Our wedding theme is nautical and our symbol is the anchor.  Officiant did a fabulous job making the ceremony nautical too : )
