This entry is part 16 of 54 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!

Gorecki, by Lamb

Song lyrics don’t have to be sung, they make beautiful readings just as they are. Fun fact: the opening lines from this song feature in one of my all-time favourite movies, Moulin Rouge!

If I should die this very moment,
I wouldn’t fear,
For I’ve never known completeness,
Like being here,
Wrapped in the warmth of you,
Loving every breath of you,
Still my heart this moment
Oh it might burst.

Could we stay right here,
Till the end of time
Till the earth stops turning
Wanna love you till the seas run dry,
I’ve found the one I’ve waited for

All this time I’ve loved you
And never known your face,
All this time I’ve missed you
And searched this human race
Here is true peace,
Here my heart knows calm,
Safe in your soul
Bathed in your sighs
Wanna stay right here
Till the end of time
Till the earth stops turning
Gonna love you till the seas run dry,
I’ve found the one I’ve waited for …

All I’ve known
All I’ve done
All I’ve felt
Was leading to this.
