Wedding movies make us laugh, and cry, and wish that we’d stocked up on extra popcorn and champagne…
We watch as two people meet, fall in love, overcome challenges with a laugh or two along the way, and end up side by side in front of the altar, surrounded by the people who love them. The wedding ceremony begins, and it’s beautiful -- It’s a symbol of their entire love story.
If you want to bring some of the magic of big screen romance to your own big day, this wedding movie mash-up might offer some inspiration!
We’ve mixed-and-matched a few of our favorite ceremony scenes from some of the best wedding movies (and tv episodes) made, and placed them into a simple wedding script template.
Take what you like, add in a few favorite scenes and quotes of your own, and get ready to film your own cinematic ceremony.
Next, ask a friend or relative to get ordained online to marry you!
Then, visit our Wedding Ceremony Script Library to see our full collection of creative wedding scripts.
From My Big Fat Greek Wedding
The groom, the groomsmen, and the minister stand waiting near the altar as the processional walk begins. 3 flower girls lead the way, followed by 3 young ring bearers, and 10 bridesmaids carrying bouquets. The father of the bride escorts the bride, arm in arm, to the start of the aisle. Guests stand to watch, and the wedding march begins to play…
At the end of the aisle, the father lifts the veil and kisses the bride’s cheeks before stepping to the side. The groom steps forward, takes her hands, and kisses them.
From Meet the Fockers
"And who gives this woman to this man?"
Father of the bride:
"I do… (brief struggle) ...She’s all yours now."
"Shalom, everyone! Ma nishma, which is Hebrew for ‘What’s going on?”
From Father of the Bride
“Dearly beloved, we are gathered here together in the presence of family, friends, and loved ones, for the purpose of uniting in matrimony ---” (Steve Martin interrupts, of course...)
“Dearly beloved, I’m sorry I’m a little late… Well, let’s get started before the groom takes off again, eh? We’re gathered here today to join this man, and this woman, in the bonds of holy matrimony. I’ve known (Monica and Chandler) for a long time, and I cannot imagine two people more perfect for each other.
And now, as I’ve left my notes in my dressing room, we shall proceed to the vows.”
From When Harry Met Sally, Harry’s speech to Sally
“I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night.
And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
From The Best Man, Mia’s Vows to Lance
“(Lance), my friend, my love, my hero. Loving you is my heart’s joy. It teaches me to be faithful to my personal truths. As I stand beside you this day, I offer you the very heart of me, filled with sacred love. Pure, unconditional, and everlasting. For love bears all things, endures all things, and believes all things. Love never fails, and I do love you, (Lance). Mind, body, and soul.”
From Father of the Bride
Call and response from Officiant to each partner:
“With this ring, as a token of love and affection, I thee wed.”
From Love Actually, Peter and Juliet’s Wedding Ceremony
“(Peter and Juliet) have given their consent and made their marriage vows to each other. They have declared their marriage by the giving and receiving of rings.
I therefore proclaim that they are husband and wife.”
(After the ceremony...)
From The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1, Edward’s wedding speech
Partner One to guests:
“It's an extraordinary thing to meet someone who you can bare your soul to and accept you for what you are. I've been waiting, for what seems like a very long time, to get beyond what I am.
With (Bella) I feel like I can finally begin. So I'd like to propose a toast to my beautiful bride. No measure of time with you will be long enough. But let's start with forever.”
