New script! Universal Love, Life, and Light Wedding Ceremony Script

Published Wednesday, Apr. 5th, 2023

Celebrate love as the Source of life and absolute abundance as you join your lives in lasting marriage. 




We’ve added a new wedding script to the library! 




This original wedding ceremony script begins by welcoming friends and family and expounding on the many promises of marriage – the promise of companionship, laughter, challenge and joy, adventure, faith, the peace of unity, and the gift of seeing our lover as they truly are.  


The officiant then shares a few words on the nature of universal love, as the Source of life and the force that connects and unites us all – the happy couple in marriage, their community, and all people – in the abundance of life. 


From the script: 


(Officiant’s Opening Speech / Invocation)


“The love between (Partner A) and (Partner B) is mighty! I’m sure you can feel it from where you sit – radiating outwards from these two beautiful people like sunlight. Their love lights up everything they touch and every person they meet.


This is a love that doesn’t stop where their embrace ends, and this love doesn’t belong only to (Partner A) and (Partner B). This is a universal love. A love that wraps itself around all of us, connects all of us on this fragile and vibrant planet. A love that is the very Source of life. A universal love, a universal light, a universal life that transcends all, without beginning or end. 


A love of absolute abundance. 


The marriage that (Partner A) and (Partner B) begin today is a manifestation of this love. And it will be a mighty one, too! Remember that although you won’t spend every day with them, your love will reach (Partner A) and (Partner B) wherever they are. Your love will hold them up and light their path, as they meet each new day together with curiosity, taking comfort in each other and their community, as they explore the unknown mysteries of the future.”

This wedding script contains sweet ‘We do!’ style joint wedding vows, a simple exchange of wedding rings, and all the essential wording for a legal marriage ceremony, including a Declaration of Intent and the officiant’s Pronouncement.

Perform this ceremony as-is, or personalize it with details from the couple’s love story. Add a unity candle lighting ceremony or community candle lighting ceremony, or share a special reading chosen by the couple. 


This script is perfect for couples who are non-denominational or spiritual but not religious. It’s community and family focused, non-traditional, and sincere.
