Wedding readings are an important part of the ceremony

Romantic verse can add to a wedding ceremony

Some of the most famous lines ever written concern the importance of love and marriage and if recited during the ceremony as one of the readings can add dignity, grandeur and real emotion to the big day. Here is one great example: How do I love thee? by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

 

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of Being an Ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of every day’s

Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.

I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;

I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use

In my old grief’s, and with my childhood’s faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose

With my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my life!--and, if God choose,

I shall but love thee better after death.
