Please see below what I have been typically asked to sing and play recently at each of the different sections. You can mix around most of the pieces to different sections if you like or choose from the overall repertoire list.

One thing to note, once you decide on the music, please make sure to run whatever musical choices you make, past the priest or celebrant at some stage before the wedding just to make sure they are ok with the pieces being performed (in particular any non religious pieces if it’s a catholic service). As an FYI, I have found that some priests like to have at least a hymn/spiritual song to be sung at the psalm and the offertory, but you can check that with him/her. Some priests are very particular and some not so much.
