your ceremony your way
Wedding Ceremony Introduction Options

The wedding ceremony introductions are to start your ceremony and will set the tone for the rest of the ceremony.

The following wedding ceremony introductions can be changed, adjusted, added to, or combined to give you your own unique wording.


Love is a miraculous gift, and a wedding is a celebration of that magic, and that is why we are here today. 

(name) and (name) are the example of the love that in its light-heartedness dissolves the notion of love as hard work. They are the promise of possibility, the expectation of joyful surprise. We are here to celebrate, witness, honour, dance, laugh, sing, eat, and be glad because (name) and (name) have found the person who fills their heart.

Bless them now with your joy and happiness, so that the words they say, the feelings that beautifully transform them in these moments, and the dreams that they dare to dream can be lived out in their marriage.


Dear family and friends, (name) and (name) want to thank you for joining them today to celebrant this very special occasion of the formal joining of their love and commitment to each other.

Two people choose to get married because they believe in the power of love. That love is the single most powerful force in the universe. It is the source of all joy, the unifying strength which links spirit to spirit. The capacity to love is our great chance for happiness.

On this wonderful day, hearts overflow with feelings of love. Love of family and friends; Love for and from all of you who have come to witness this wedding. 

(name) and (name) believe so strongly in love’s great power that they willing now come to promise to spend the rest of their lives together as Husband and Wife. 


The ceremony of marriage in which (name) and (name) come to be united is one of the first and oldest ceremonies in the world. Marriage is the clasping of hands, the blending of two hearts, and the union of two lives into one. 

Their marriage must stand, not by the authority of the State, nor by the seal on their wedding certificate but by the strength and power of the faith and love they have for one another.

We are gathered here today to witness the coming together of two people whose hearts and spirits are entwined as one. They are adding to their life not only the affection of each other but also the companionship and blessing of a deep trust as well. They are agreeing to share strength, responsibilities, and love.

Love is flexibility, patience, understanding, and has a sense of humour. Love is having the capacity to forgive and forget. Love is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow. Love is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.


We gather here today to celebrate the wedding of (name) and (name). You have come here to share in this formal commitment they make to one another, to offer your love and support to this union, and to allow (name)] and (name) to start their married life together surrounded by the people dearest and most important to them.

Marriage is perhaps the greatest and most challenging adventure of human relationships. No ceremony can create your marriage; only you can do that through love and patience; through dedication and perseverance; through talking and listening, helping and supporting and believing in each other; through tenderness and laughter; through learning to forgive, learning to appreciate your differences, and by learning to make the important things matter, and to let go of the rest. 

What this ceremony can do is to witness and affirm the choice you make to stand together as soulmates and partners.


Today we have come together to witness the joining of these two lives. For (name) and (name), out of the routine of ordinary life, the extraordinary has happened. They met each other, fell in love, and are finalising it with their wedding today. 

Romance is fun, but true love is something far more and it is (name) and (name)’s desire to love each other for life that we are celebrating here today.

But today is also a celebration for the rest of us, for it is a pleasure for us to see love in bloom, and to participate in the union of two people so delightfully suited to one another. 


Family is a very important part of (name) and (name)’s lives and as the quote by states:

Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.

This is why (name) and (name) have chosen you to witness today, their commitment in marriage. In their hearts (name) and (name), are already committed to one another and have chosen to continue their journey through life together. 

This ceremony gives formal recognition of the natural progression of that commitment. They have learned to know and love each other and now have decided to live their lives together as husband/wife/partner in marriage). 

The experience of their love is not just a life event that is self-contained. Rather, it has touched the lives of their [#] children who have been born of that love. So it is fitting that (children’s names) are here today to celebrate the first day of the marriage union.


(name) and (name), are coming together to publicly proclaim their undying love through the celebration of their marriage.

Love is the beauty of life. You are no longer alone, you have a partner with whom you can share your life. Falling in love is amazing but falling in love with the person who loves you in return is more splendid.

Family and friends, you have been invited here today to witness the shared love of this beautiful couple.

Their enthusiasm is contagious, the certainty of their destiny together is inspiring and their great expectations give us all a glimpse of the heights love can reach.

Marriage is a very special place. It’s an oasis, a haven, and a sanctuary where we can safely learn about ourselves in the presence of another.

Like the harmony with the melody, marriage weaves two lives together, creating a deeper and richer song.

We are honoured that (name) and (name), are sharing some of their beautiful music with us on this day.

We ask that the vision they have of one another always reflects the electric attraction that first brought them together. And we give them our blessings, that, as they enter into the lifelong bond that is marriage, they may always see one another in the light of all light; the light of love. 


There are some wonderful milestones in life and a wedding ceremony is a cherished moment in a couple’s history. It acknowledges and honours an important transition they are making in their lives.

Today we gather for the happiest of ceremonies, the change of status from single individuals to a married couple.

Today is the day that (name) and (name) will formally and publicly make their promises to one another. Although this is indeed a high point, marriage is a journey, not a destination. Marriage is more than anyone single event or promise. It is a series of decisions that have been made and will continue to be made over and over again.

Marriage is a promise that is renewed daily through a couple’s actions and through love, which brings comfort in times of sadness and heightens our greatest joy.


(name) and (name) we are gathered here today to celebrate one of life’s greatest moments, the union of marriage. I would ask you at this time if you could please face each other and join hands. 

(name) the person standing before you is about to become your (wife/husband/partner in marriage), and (name) the person standing before you is about to become your (husband/wife/partner in marriage). 

Consider the hands holding yours. They will work alongside yours as you build your future together, as you laugh and cry, and together share your innermost secrets and dreams. These are the hands of your best friend that are holding yours now as you pledge your love and commitment to each other.
