A How To Guide for Your Catholic Wedding

Wedding Liturgy OP

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.
