There are so many beautiful and heartwarming wedding readings that can be derived from the many religions around the world. But for those who wish to hold a non-denominational wedding, you can find inspiration for readings everywhere.
With such a huge field of material ready to discover, it can seem like a huge task to find the right one. Here’s some popular readings that might just be the perfect fit for you.
Love is an adventure
Love is an adventure and a conquest. It survives and develops like the universe itself only by perpetual discovery. The only right love is that between couples whose passion leads them both, one through the other, to a higher possession of their being.
“Put your faith in the spirit which dwells between the two of you. You have each offered yourself to the other as a boundless field of understanding, of enrichment, of mutually increased sensibility.
“You will meet above all by entering into and constantly sharing one another’s thoughts, affections, and dreams. There alone, as you know, in spirit, which is arrived through flesh, you will find no disappointments, no limits.
“There alone the skies are ever open for your love; there alone lies the great road ahead.
– Pierre Tielhart de Chardin
A marriage makes of two fractional lives a whole, it gives two purposeless lives a work and doubles the strength of each to perform it.
It gives to two questioning natures a reason for living and something to live for.
It will give new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, a new beauty to the earth and a new mystery to life.
– Mark Twain
I will be here
If in the morning when you wake, if the sun does not appear, I will be here.
If in the dark we lose sight of love, hold my hand and have no fear, I will be here.
I will be here, when you feel like being quiet, when you need to speak your mind I will listen.
Through the winning, losing, and trying we’ll be together, and I will be here.
If in the morning when you wake, if the future is unclear, I will be here.
As sure as seasons were made for change, our lifetimes were made for years, I will be here.
I will be here, and you can cry on my shoulder, when the mirror tells us we’re older.
I will hold you, to watch you grow in beauty, and tell you all the things you are to me.

We’ll be together and I will be here. I will be true to the promises I’ve made, to you and to the one who gave you to me.
I will be here.
-Steven Curtis Chapman
To love is not to possess
To love is not to possess, to own or imprison, nor to lose one’s self in another.
Love is to join and separate, to walk alone and together, to find a laughing freedom that lonely isolation does not permit.
It is finally to be able to be who we really are, no longer clinging in childish dependency nor docilely living separate lives in silence, it is to be perfectly one’s self and perfectly joined in permanent commitment to another—and to one’s inner self.
- James Kavanaugh
Have you asked a friend or family member to do a reading during your ceremony?
Love is: being happy for the other person when they are happy, being sad for the other person when they are sad, being together in good times and being together in bad times.
Love is the source of strength.
Love is: being honest with yourself at all times, being honest with the other person at all times, telling, listening, respecting the truth and never pretending.
Love is the source of reality.
Love is: an understanding that is so complete that you feel as if you are a part of the other person accepting the other person just the way they are and not trying to change them to be something else.
Love is the source of unity.
Love is: the freedom to pursue your own desires while sharing your experiences with the other person, the growth of one individual alongside of and together with the growth of another individual.
Love is the source of success.
Love is: the excitement of planning things together, the excitement of doing things together.
Love is the source of the future
– Susan Polis Schutz
The bridge across forever
A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks.
When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are, we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be.
Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person, we’re safe in our own paradise.
Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person.
Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.
Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love.
How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?
Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour.
Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.
His hello was the end of her endings
Her laugh was their first step down the aisle
His hand would be hers to hold forever
His forever was as simple as her smile
He said she was what was missing
She said instantly she knew
She was a question to be answered
And his answer was “I do”
