If you’re having a Christian wedding, you’ll likely be marrying in a church and having gospel wedding hymns during your ceremony, but there are plenty of other times during your big day when you can honour your faith with Christian wedding songs, too.

Using songs that speak to you and your beliefs, or have been the soundtrack to your life and relationship, is a wonderful way to personalise your union. And you're spoilt for choice, as there are so many wedding songs for church ceremonies ideal for your walk down the aisle, as well as heaps of Christian love songs suitable for your first dance.

There are also plenty of brilliant Christian pop tracks and African Christian anthems out there that you can sneak into your wedding reception playlist. With hundreds of songs to choose from, you're bound to find something you love that you can incorporate into your faith-focused nuptials.

Christian Wedding Songs: Love, Gospel & Worship Songs for Your Celebration

Remember that you won’t be able to play anything with religious connotations at a civil ceremony, and you’ll need to provide your song choices ahead of time for them to vet. 

And there may also be rules for religious ceremonies too - when it comes to your wedding church songs, you may be asked to give a list of your selections before the event, as some religious venues can be quite strict.

Here's our list of the best wedding songs for a Christian ceremony and celebration, along with Spotify playlists so you can decide your favourites.
