Wedding Hymns - Some Starter Suggestions

All things bright and beautiful...

And did those feet... (Jerusalem)

For the beauty of the earth...

Give me joy in my heart..

Lord of all hopefulness...

Morning has broken...

Now thank we all our God...

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven...

Generally, you will make your own arrangements for flowers; however, it is important to contact our church flower co-coordinator. This is so that she can explain what is permissible within the church; ensure there is no conflict of arrangements with the regular Sunday displays and discuss your plans for removal of the displays after the day.
