Getting married in the Catholic Church means that you have to have a Catholic Wedding Ceremony. There are two different kinds of ceremonies: the Catholic Nuptial Mass, or the Catholic Wedding Service.
For each option, we’ve created a guide, with the order of events for either ceremony. For some of the events, you can choose the readings and the prayers. We’ve given you a selection of options that are available next to each of these events: these will help you complete your Wedding Booklet and prepare for your Catholic Wedding Ceremony.
The Catholic Nuptial Mass
A Catholic Nuptial Mass is made up of the Liturgy of the Word, The Rite of Marriage as well as The Liturgy of the Eucharist (Communion). Below is the order for a Nuptial Mass
- Entrance Rite
- Liturgy of the Word
