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.
Meeting you is the best thing that has ever happened to me. The friendship, love and support that you’ve given me mean the world to me and I’m so proud to stand here today and marry you, my best friend.
I stand with you in front of our family and friends, and I promise you that I will always stand with you. I promise that I’ll keep doing silly things to make you laugh, even when you’re not looking. I promise I will try harder to remember to replace the garbage bag after I empty the bin. I promise that I’ll be your loyal sidekick on whatever crazy adventures you have planned. I promise you that I will love and respect you, that I will always be your best friend and I promise that I will never stop wanting to hold your hand.
Whatever adventures or hardships lay ahead, good or bad, I promise you we will face it all together. I love you.
The past eight years have seen events unfold that have both enriched and confronted us. During this time we have experienced spectacular highs and unforeseen lows, which have helped to forge the unbreakable bond that we now share. But no matter what situation we find ourselves in, I always feel comforted by knowing you are there with me.
You have challenged me to outdo myself in many ways and this, I believe, has made me a better person. Your quirky humour, your candid honesty, your unwavering compassion and your gentle nature are only the beginnings of what makes you a truly wonderful person and partner.
Although I have tried, the depth of love that I feel for you cannot adequately by expressed with words.
With these vows I promise to always support, honour and respect you. I promise to be by your side during life’s challenges and to rejoice with you when we overcome them. Most of all, I promise to takes us on some epic adventures and create life long memories with you. You are my best friend, my soul mate, my rock, my greatest supporter, my my.
