Wedding Recessional

When the organist begins the recessional music, the bride will take the groom’s right arm and proceed up the aisle together. The bride’s attendants will follow her.

As soon as the bride reaches the back of the ceremony site, if wedding pictures will be taken, she and the wedding party should walk to the side of the exit door where there is place for her and the whole wedding party to wait until all the guests have left the ceremony site. They should then meet at the altar for portraits of the wedding party. A good professional photographer will take no longer than 30 minutes.
