The service can be found in the appendix to the hymnal, in other service books and here. The ceremony may take place in the context of the Eucharist. 

The service proceeds as follows:

Introductory music
Introductory words
The wedding prayer
Reading(s) from scripture
A short homily
The marriage:
Prayer over the rings
Proclamation of the marriage
Blessing of the marriage
Hymn or suitable music
Prayers of intercession
The Lord's Prayer

The service begins with a wedding march or hymn, and the couple move to the front of the altar and kneel before it. Before God and the congregation they express their will to love one another and exchange rings as a sign of their union. After the proclamation of the marriage, the congregation prays for the couple and their families. Finally, the congregation stands as the couple process out of the church, followed by their parents, grandparents and siblings.
