The next set of vows in this series is from a wedding in May 2017. 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

From the moment our paths crossed, you’ve captivated me, challenged me, frustrated me and improved me in ways no person has done before. You have shown me that two people loving each other with trust, respect and support are happier than each could ever be on their own. You are my strength and my joy (sometimes also the pain in my butt). You make me laugh, mad, crazy and every combination in between. And today we are giving each other an amazing gift of a life together.

 

Today I choose to spend my life with you. I promise to share in life’s journey, to learn and grow with you. I promise to love you for who you are today, and who you will become tomorrow. I promise to nurture your dreams and help you achieve them. I promise to stand by you during all of life’s challenges and cheer you on. I promise to laugh with you (and sometimes at you). I promise we will have many happy moments throughout our lives together. I promise to be true to you, to support and encourage you and to challenge and frustrate you. I truly believe we are good for each other and that we will continue to grow stronger together as husband and wife. This ring represents the trust we share with each other and our combined strength together. Every time I look at this ring, I will be reminded of the commitment we have made to each other today.

 

Bride

I take you on this day before all of our closest friends and family to be my husband, and friend. We shall bear together whatever sorrow and adversity life may place upon us, and share together whatever joy and fulfilment life may hold in store. I commit my life to you; a commitment made in love, kept in faith, lived in hope and eternally made anew.

 

I pledge to you a life of giving and of hoping, of growing and of loving. I shall be with you in your tears and in your laughter, just as I shall bring to you my own joys and my own sorrows.

 

To say I love you is not enough. To try to condense the depth of my feelings into a few words is impossible. It doesn’t tell of the respect I have for you as an individual, nor how tender and caring you are, nor the joy I find in your laughter, nor the tears I hold back for your pain, nor the strength you give when I need it, nor the pleasure I feel in your touch. But if to say I love you means all these things, then let me say I love you more each day.
