For a Civil Ceremony, there may be space for as much or little music as you wish. Some ceremonies may only require music at the entrance and exit, as in a short blessing.
There are many types of Ceremony - Druid, Humanist, Spiritual, non-denominational, etc.
Many couples script their own, and there are some common features which occur throughout - i.e. the lighting of the unity candle, the warming of the rings, the tying of the knot around the hands, the pouring of the sand. These are generally key points for music. I would advise people to choose their favourite pieces of music, and liaise with their celebrant as to where the pieces are most fitting.
Church Ceremonies may have approximately ten pieces, including the Psalm and the Alleluia.
Feel free to mix different styles. We'v compiled a short sample for ideas. We also have a repertoire of liturgical music if you need any help in choosing extra pieces.

Lighting of candles - Planxty Irwin or The Sally Gardens
