WEDDING CEREMONY SAMPLE 4 (no guests)

Opening
Let us lift our hearts as one
in delighted celebration
of the marriage union that is about to take place here between bride and groom.
You enter into the sacred and joyous covenant of marriage,
the magnificence of your love is a blessing
and so are your open hearts and your vibrant and willing spirits.

Love is an inspiration and may your step of making these marriage promises to each other also inspire others in your live, so it can be a reminder to people to rededicate themselves to their loving relationships.
May your step to create a union enrich all that surround you in your daily lives.

We are here to celebrate your union
and to join your lives together in marriage
whilst rejoicing for this wonderful occasion.

The essence of the marriage relationship
is the openness to another person
in his or her entirety
as lover, companion, and friend.
We join our lives together
in search of something greater and richer;
something that transcends our lives.
Loving one another with depth and passion
is perhaps the greatest treasure
we human beings can attain.
It adds richness and profound meaning to our lives.
Love is one of life’s greatest joys.
By simply giving ourselves to each other,
honestly and courageously,
each partner is infinitely enhanced.
As companions in our day-to-day lives,
we take pleasure in sharing
our time, thoughts, and feelings.
We delight in reporting on
our separate adventures in the world.
These become the rhythm of life
between devoted life partners
as they build their life together.
In marriage, two lives are intimately shared;
and the blending of the two
must not diminish either one.
Rather, it should enhance
the individuality of each partner.
As a marriage matures, it takes on a life of its own.
And within it,
each partner is individually evolving
while growing in understanding of the other.
This wonderful intimacy with another person
can mirror a depth of inner knowing
that awakens levels of awareness
we never knew existing.
To be awakened in this way is a priceless gift.
When we give of ourselves
into a loving marriage partnership,
we do not abandon ourselves;
we do not shed our individuality;
for that is what brought us together in the first place.

As the Apache Wedding Blessing declares: [to be read by ….] Example
“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 will be no loneliness,
for each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two persons,
but there is one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling place
to enter into the days of your togetherness,
And may your days be-good and long upon the earth.”
You may now kiss the bride!!
