The next set of vows in this series is from a wedding in March 2016. If you want to know more about this series, check out previous entries here!

A reminder: these vows are published to inspire you and provide you with some ideas for writing your vows; they’re not here so you can copy them word for word! Please also remember these don’t include the legally required vows – those words generally go at the start of these ones.

 

Groom

A set of words…

 

When you love someone, love them completely

Without conditions

Without constraints

To be yourself with them, silly or serious, and to cherish them for all that they are

To celebrate diversity

And celebrate two worlds becoming one

These are my feelings and vows to you

To be with you always, within your heart, mind and soul

To lift you up, to encourage you to shine

To always be a source of strength, and your centre

To declare to you and to all those here that I care and love

That my heart sings at the thought of you

That I love my life with you and cannot contemplate being apart

Not even for a night

That you inspire me, challenge me, enliven me

That you are my world, my joyous life, my beautiful love

And it will always be thus.

 

Bride

I choose you and I promise

To stand by your side and sleep in your arms.

To be joy to your heart and food for your soul.

To learn with you and grow with you, even as time and life changes us both.

I promise to laugh with you every day.

To be your lover, companion and a true and loyal friend.

I will be your ally in conflict.

I will be your greatest fan and your toughest adversary.

I promise to respect you and cherish you as an individual, a partner, and an equal, knowing that we do not complete, but complement each other.

I will value our differences as much as our common ground.

I promise to hold your hand every night and to never let us lose our spark.

Finally, I promise to be myself.

I cherish our attitude toward finding adventure in life.

May we have many adventures and grow old together.
