CHRISTIAN CEREMONY SCRIPT WITH READING FROM CORINTHIANS

PROCESSIONAL

Beginning of the Wedding Ceremony. Guests are seated followed by the entrance of the Bridal Party.

INVOCATION

Friends, we have been invited here today to share with and a very important moment in their lives. In the time they have been together, their love and understanding of each other has grown and matured, and now they have decided to live their lives together as husband and wife.

READING FROM CORINTHIANS

1; 13 Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited, it is never rude or selfish, it does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's faults, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope. It is always ready to endure whatever comes. True love does not come to an end.

DECLARATION OF INTENT

, do you take for your lawful wedded wife, to live in the holy estate of matrimony? Will you love, honour, comfort, and cherish her from this day forward, forsaking all others, keeping only unto her for as long as you both shall

Groom: 'I do'

, do you take for your lawful wedded husband, to live in the holy estate of matrimony? Will you love, honour, comfort, and cherish him from this day forward, forsaking all others, keeping only unto him for as long as you both shall live?

Bride: 'I do'

VOWS EXCHANGE

(Ask couple to turn and face each other)
(Officiant: addressing the groom who repeats the marriage vows.)

I take to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love, honour, and cherish, 'til death do us part.

(Officiant: then to the bride who repeats the marriage vows.)

take thee to be my wedded husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love, honour, and cherish, 'til death do us part.

RINGS EXCHANGE

The wedding ring is a symbol of eternity. It is an outward sign of an inward and spiritual bond which unites two hearts in endless love. And now as a token of your love and of your deep desire to be forever united in heart and soul.

(Officiant then asks for the bride's ring.)

May this ring be blessed so he who gives it and she who wears it may abide in peace, and continue in love until life's end.

(Groom placing ring on bride’s finger.)

With this ring I thee wed. Wear it as a symbol of our love and commitment. Officiant then asks for the grooms ring. May this ring be blessed so that she who gives it and he who wears it may abide in peace, and continue in love until life's end.

(Bride placing ring on groom's finger.)

With this ring I thee wed. Wear it as a symbol of our love and commitment.

PRONOUNCEMENT

The true art of married life is in this inner spiritual journey. It is a mutual enrichment, a give and take between two personalities, a mingling of two endowments which diminishes neither, but enhances both. Inasmuch as you, , and you , have consented together in the union of matrimony and you have pledged your faith each to the other in the presence of God, your family, and friends.

By the authority vested in me by the State of I now pronounce you both husband and wife. You may kiss your Bride!

RECESSIONAL

End of the Wedding Ceremony.
