Order of service

Those being married at St. John’s are provided with all of the materials required to put together a personalised order of service for their wedding. As a first point of call, see the ceremony: step by step for a comprehensive guide to the ceremony and order of service. St. John’s staff are available to assist those planning a wedding ceremony in our church. See the contact page.

As it is not necessary to include all of the words used in the printed Order of Service, St John’s recommends the Template below as a starting point for those putting together a printed Order of Service provided to guests on the day.
