Fair Dinkum Love wedding reading

This entry is part 32 of 52 in the series Awesome Wedding Readings

Here’s the next in my series of awesome wedding readings you might like to include in your wedding ceremony!

Readings are absolutely not a compulsory part of a marriage ceremony. They’re a way of expressing something in a way that’s different from anything you or I can come up with, and they’re also a way of including additional people in the ceremony if you want to.

We’re not necessarily talking about Bible readings here, although you can include Bible passages if you want. You might like to consider poems, passages from films or books (especially those written for children), or song lyrics. To give an even more personal touch, some couples ask their loved ones to write something specifically for their ceremony. There are plenty of options!

Fair Dinkum Love, by Kim Cockerell

Fair dinkum love isn’t about bringing in a dozen red roses
It’s about bringing in the washing.

It’s not about standing next to your partner
because they look good on your arm
it’s about standing by them even when they look foolish.

Fair dinkum love isn’t about stiff posture and smart clothes
it’s about wrestling on the couch in your tracksuit.

It’s not about oysters and candle-lit dinners
it’s about bringing home Chinese when your partner’s had a busy day.

Fair dinkum love isn’t about exciting getaways and fancy resorts
it’s about being totally content sleeping in together at home.

It’s not about gym memberships and facelifts
it’s about growing old and fat together.

Fair dinkum love is not about romance or image or success.
Fair dinkum love is about two average people adoring and accepting each other for who they are.
