delightful wedding mass arragngements for small group?

Hello,
I already posted in the forum about "Panis angelicus" for small SSA, SAA or SAT/SAB  choir.
I would greatly appreciate suggestions for nice, cheerful pieces for the same small vocal ensemble, for weddings. Any period is fine.
 
Pieces in Latin or Italian will be most favoured, as the English skills of this groiup are not that great, plus people are not used to hearing much English in church here.
A few good gospel pieces, though, would be very nice!

Thank you
Lisa

Love Never Ends  is a setting by Philip Stopford of the famous passage from 1 Corinthians "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels and have not love....."  It was commissioned for a wedding in Leicester Cathedral, England.
 
My Solemn Vow  is a simple setting of the vows from the marriage service.

Thank you for the suggestions, Michael. I did not know these pieces.
I do think our group might have a bit of trouble with so many English words, but I will look into these works, they are indeed very nice!
 
Any other suggestions, please, in Latin, Italian or possibly Freanch?
 
One more question:
Is there a SAA voice arrangement of the Mozart Ave Verum Corpus?
 
Thank you!
