A little more context on what you’re looking for would be helpful.

For example, do you want music that is *not* classical/not traditionally played on the organ? Or are you looking for classical music/organ repertoire, just want ideas for pieces that aren’t done at weddings all the time?

Additional question: do you already have an organist lined up? Does the venue provide one, or requre you to choose from a list of their approved musicians? (Some churches, for example, will require or recommend that you use organists they know) That will make a difference as well – it will depend on what that person is capable of playing, and comfortable with playing.

Good hymn tunes: Thaxted/O God Beyond All Praising (you might also recognize it as the “Jupiter” theme from Holst’s Planets Suite), Hyfrydol/Love Divine, All Loves Excelling; Llanfair; For the Beauty of the Earth; Slane/Be Thou My Vision; Prospect/How Wonderful the Three-In-One; Beach Spring/God of Day and God of Darkness; St. Columba/The King of Love My Shepherd Is; Ode to Joy/Joyful Joyful, We Adore Thee

Classical pieces: Handel’s “Water Music” suite; Handel’s “Largo” from Xerxes; Telemann’s “La Grace;” Prince of Denmark March; Bach’s “Sheep May Safely Graze,” “Sleepers Awake”

Another nice one I just remembered is “Highland Cathdral”. Good processional.
