Ceremony Examples

Here are some examples of modern wedding ceremonies that are symbolic in nature. Personalize the ceremony by adding your own vows. Whether you choose to add lib, read your vows from cards or memorize your words it will be a touching part of the ceremony.

 

Ceremonies can be adapted to suit your needs and changed if you wish to include children or friends and family in the ceremony through readings or other ways.

 

Wedding Ceremony

BRIDE & GROOM, please turn towards one another, join your hands and in so doing, join your hearts.

 

Words of Welcome

BRIDE & GROOM you are both here at VENUE NAME to publicly declare your love for one another and the desire to be joined as one in marriage. To witness the declaration of your hearts, built upon experience, and enriched by your love. You have chosen this setting at VENUE NAME this day because of the romance, power and majesty of the ocean. The beauty of our surroundings and the distance of the horizon calls to mind the future that you share and potential stretching out before you as you face it together.

 

Declaration of Intent

The bond of marriage is one that can be entered into only by persons who are free to offer themselves to each other. Therefore, I ask you to state your intention. BRIDE & GROOM, have you come here joyfully and without reservation to give yourselves to one another in matrimony? ~ We have.


Affirmation of the Couple

BRIDE & GROOM, it is a great joy for all of us here with you on this day, witnessing the commitment you make to one another. Now I would ask you BRIDE to express a few of things you love about GROOM.


GROOM I would ask you to do the same.

We are often reminded of the solemnity of our vows, the importance of love, respect and trust and they are indeed very important. But rarely are we reminded of how vital the little things like a bit of kindness and the ability to laugh when the absurdities of life become almost too much to endure are as well. Cherish this in one another and you will surely have a marriage of great beauty and delight.


When we love, we do not love all the time precisely the same way each and every moment to moment, however, this is what most of us have come to expect. We often have too little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, and of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist its ebb. We needlessly fear it will never return. We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity, when life gives us the gifts of transition and growth. Embrace the changes that will come in your marriage, they are the means to growth and strength for through a supportive partnership you can help one another become better and stronger individuals.

 

Exchange of Vows

BRIDE & GROOM, your marriage is created by the mutual exchange of pledges between you. And then only you can breathe life into these words and transform them into a meaningful union of heart, body and mind.

BRIDE, please look into GROOM'S eyes as you repeat after me;

GROOM, there is no other person I would rather share my life with than you.
I want to be the one to give you warmth when you are cold,
comfort when you are in pain, and joy when you are sad.
I will care for you as you care for me,
sharing equally in the responsibilities we both bring to our marriage.
I will support you in all your endeavors.
I give you my trust and promise to be worthy of your trust.
I will remain by your side now and forever as your wife.

GROOM, please look into BRIDE'S eyes as you repeat after me;

I will support you in all your endeavors.
I give you my trust and promise to be worthy of your trust.
I will remain by your side now and forever as your husband.


Exchange of Rings

May I have the rings please?


The circle is a natural symbol of eternity as it has no beginning and no end. We place the ring on the left hand because it constitutes a direct path to the heart, a traditional metaphor for love and devotion. Its presence reminds us of the vows we have made and their relationship to the emotional seat of the heart. May BRIDE & GROOM rings reside on the hands of the lover, the caregiver, the companion and the guide. BRIDE & GROOM wear these rings as a visible symbol of your unity.
GROOM, please look into BRIDE'S eyes, placing the ring upon her finger as you repeat after me.

Let this symbol of my eternal love be a reminder of my devotion to you.
I marry you with all that I have and all that I am. I am honored to call you my wife.
BRIDE, please look into GROOM'S eyes, placing the ring upon his finger as you repeat after me.
Let this symbol of my eternal love be a reminder of my devotion to you.
I marry you with all that I have and all that I am. I am honored to call you my wife.

 

Sand Ceremony

BRIDE & GROOM just as these grains of sand can never be separated, our thoughts for you today is that your lives together would be longer than the time it would take to separate the individual grains of sand.


Affirmation of the Marriage

May the glory resting on all who love,
rest upon you, and bless you and keep you,
and fill you with happiness and a gracious spirit.
Despite all changes of time and fortune,
may all that is noble and lovely and true
abound in your hearts and abide with you,
and give you strength in all your days together.


Declaration of Marriage

BRIDE & GROOM, by the vows you have made to one another and the strength of your commitment, it is my pleasure to pronounce you "Husband and Wife." Please seal your marriage with a kiss.

 

VOW RENEWAL

INTRODUCTION.
We are here in Phuket today for the vow renewal ceremony of BRIDE & GROOM as they promise to continue to face the future together, accepting whatever may lie ahead in their journey as partners in the dance of life.


GROOM please look at your BRIDE and repeat after me:

I love you. You are my best friend.
Today I give myself to you once again in marriage.
I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you,
and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle.
I promise to love you in good times and in bad,
when life seems easy and when it seems hard,
when our love is simple, and when it is an effort.
I promise to cherish you, and to always love you for ever.

RINGS

GROOM, may I have the rings please?

 

From earliest times, the ring has been a symbol of wedded love. An unbroken and never ending circle symbolizes a commitment to love that is also never ending. As you take these I would have you remember that to love is to come together from the pathways of your past and move forward. Hand in hand, along the uncharted roads of your future, ready to risk, to dream and to dare. And always believe that all things are possible with the love you have for each other.

 

Always remember to be the best of friends, to love each other during the good times and also the difficult times of your lives together and remember this special day as one of the most important and meaningful days of your lives as a married couple.

 

GROOM do you take BRIDE once again to be your wife?

 

"I do".

 

BRIDE do you take GROOM once again to be your husband?

 

"I do."

 

Ring Vows

GROOM, please look into BRIDE'S eyes, placing the ring on her finger as you repeat after me.

 

"Let this symbol of my eternal love be a reminder of my devotion to you. I renew our vows of marriage with all that I have and all that I am. I am honored to call you my wife."

 

BRIDE, please look into GROOM'S eyes, placing the on his finger as you repeat after me.

 

"Let this symbol of my eternal love be a reminder of my devotion to you. I renew our vows of marriage with all that I have and all that I am. I am honored to call you my husband."

 

Sand Ceremony

"Today, this relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand one, representing you BRIDE and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, and the other representing you, GROOM, and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be. As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage continue be."

 

FINAL BLESSING

Please look into each other's eyes as I read the wedding blessing

Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter to the other
Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other
Now there is no loneliness for you
Now there is no more loneliness
Now you are two bodies, but there is only one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling place, to enter into the days of your togetherness.
May your days be good, and long upon the earth.

 

BRIDE & GROOM, by the vows you have made to one another and the strength of your commitment, it is my pleasure to pronounce you once again as husband and wife. You may kiss the bride!
