Spend some time on researching on the Internet and you'll soon be overwhelmed with the volume of tried and tested wedding readings. Here are some of our favourites:
Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your root was so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. that is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.
from: 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin' by Louis de Bernieres
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
Oh, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to ever wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error, and upon me prov'd,
I never writ, nor no man ever lov'd.
Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare
Nothing is sweeter than love, nothing stronger, nothing higher, nothing wider, nothing happier, nothing fuller, nothing better in heaven and earth.
'Love Divine' by Thomas A. Kempis
Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get - only with what you are expecting to give, which is everything.
Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.
