The bride arrives with her father and her Maid of Honour. The Maid of honour takes her place beside the celebrant. The bride and her Dad embrace, her Dad then shakes hands with the groom. He then places his daughter’s hand in the hand of the groom who then gently guides his bride to his side. No words are necessary.
Isn’t that just sooooo romantic.
I’d love to share a beautiful short wedding or commitment ceremony reading I came across recently…….
“The Most Wonderful Things in Life” Unknown author
“The most wonderful of all things in life is the discovery of another human being with whom one’s relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvellous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life.”
We all know the old traditional wedding or commitment vows but here they are embellished with just a few simple but beautiful words……..
I, John Smith take you Mary Brown to be my beloved wife/life partner, to have and to hold you, to honour you, to treasure you, to be at your side in sorrow and in joy, in the good times and in the bad, and to love and cherish you always.Â I promise you this from my heart, for all the days of my life.
You see, we don’t have to be super articulate or have fancy qualifications to get to the heart of the matter. If you love someone, want to spend the rest of your days with that person, that’s all you have to say, really. What ever you say or do must convey your feelings and your intentions, no matter how simple or unsphisticated it seems or sounds.
