Beautiful Church Wedding Songs

Looking for some beautiful Church wedding songs? There are usually some wedding songs in Church during a wedding ceremony. The first is sung near to the beginning and helps everyone to feel that they are together in this place for a special moment. Well, We're glad you stopped by because we have chosen the best beautiful wedding songs and have listed them here for you.  Planning a wedding spends your time; don’t forget to give some attention to the music, it will set the mood for a special and holy wedding ceremony. Many of these beautiful wedding songs include lyrics that are based upon verses in the Bible when you want to celebrate at Church.

The quote of Father Paul Turner in The Catholic Wedding Answer Book (Resource Publications, 2001) said that "There is no official list of Catholic wedding songs, but it does have the requirement that songs are prayerful".

Some churches have a choir which can be present at your wedding ceremony and help lead the song singing. Some choirs can also sing a suitable piece by themselves during the service, such as when you are signing the Register. To help you get started, here’s a list of some of the most beautiful church wedding songs that can still wow your guests and represent you as a couple. Here are a few options:

  • Here Ave Maria is a lovely song at Catholic weddings and is usually sung by a soloist while the Bride and Groom visit the Holy Family or Blessed Virgin altar during the ceremony. There are a million versions of this song, from the more classic to jazzy to contemporary.
  • Come Thou Fount is a popular processional for Catholic Nuptial Masses. If you aren’t digging the choir sound, there are some more modern versions that are really beautiful. It also sounds beautiful sung by a simple soloist.
  • In Christ Alone is a more out-of-the-box option for a processional, especially if you have a killer violinist.
  • This sound of classical/traditional music taken from Beethoven’s 9th symphony is a great song of faith and is wonderful as a recessional.  It might also be sung as a congregational or solo piece during the wedding ceremony, Ode to Joy is typically acceptable as it has religious lyrics.
  • Communion is a sacred time for Catholics. During the Presentation, Make Me a Channel of Your Peace is a popular option.
  • Here I Am Lord is another popular Catholic hymn often used during the Presentation.
  • A hugely popular Catholic song is On Eagle’s Wings. It’s often used during Communion. Everyone’s mass-attending grandma will know this one, so it’s a nice way to stay traditional.
  • Sometimes after Communion couples will have a reflection song. Lord, I Need You works great, and this particular version is awesome. If you have a duo available, this acoustic duet is also really pretty.
  • A really popular hymn for the recessional is Be Thou My Vision. This is a lovely eight century traditional hymn with Irish roots. There’s a great upbeat version if you’re looking for a joyful, celebratory feel, or a slower one if you want the vibe to be more on the solemn/soft side. While it is commonly sung in most churches today, it is a great song to be sung for special music or as a congregational hymn at any wedding.
  • If you want to incorporate a choir, O God Beyond All Praising sounds amazing with multiple voices and can be a huge statement song for the recessional.
