Suggested Readings

In a Religious ceremony, particular attention should be given to the reading. There are many readings to choose from, and the Minister should be able to suggest a few.

Some bible readings worthy of consideration are:

  • 1 Corinthians 13: 1-8: A favourite reading about the definition of love
  • John 2: 1-11: The story of the first miracle at the wedding at Cana
  • John 15: 9-12: Refers to the depth of love
  • 1 John 4: 7-13: 'Beloved, let us love one another'
  • 1 John 3: 18-24: Gives the injunction to love in deed and truth
  • Ephesians 5: 1-2, 25-33: Not such a popular reading today, possibly because of it's instruction that wives should obey their husbands
  • Romans 12: 1-2, 9-13: Practical advice on the Christian life
  • A Selection of Poems

  • She walks in Beauty - Byron
  • Freedom and Love - T.Campbell
  • O'er The Muir Amang The Heather
  • Romance - Robert Louis Stevenson
  • My Luve - Robert Burns
  • Sonnet 116 - Shakespeare
  • On Marriage - Khalil Gibran
  • Scottish Wedding Prayer

    Lord help us to remember when
    We first met and the strong
    love that grew between us.
    To work that love into
    practical things so that nothing
    can divide us.
    We ask for words both kind
    and loving and hearts always
    ready to ask forgiveness
    as well as to forgive.
    Dear Lord, we put our
    marriage into your hands
