The wedding ceremony of Sharon Mendes and Rodger Maslamoney was beautifully modern and at the same time a traditional church wedding. Their church wedding was held at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Middle Park. From my experience, most Catholic churches does not offer provision for non-liturgical (contemporary, not religious) songs at weddings but Sharon and Rodger were given permission to choose modern and Christian pop music for their day. At their request, I was able to sing "Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts, "From the Inside Out" by Hillsong and some contemporary love songs such as "A Moment like this by Kelly Clarkson and "You're the Inspiration" by Chicago. Even with some modern songs during the ceremony, the focus was not on me as a performer but on the couple and on the songs that have good meaning. It tied perfectly to their religious wedding service. Congratulations Sharon and Rodger!
There are many factors that go into music decisions any church will make. If you are planning a Catholic church wedding or religious ceremony, it is best to consult your officiating minister first as what is allowed in terms of music varies among churches in Melbourne.
I sing some liturgical or traditional church music. If you need a ceremony singer I am here to help.
