Storybook Love wedding reading

This entry is part 34 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!

Storybook Love, by Mark Knopfler

The theme song from The Princess Bride.

Come my love I’ll tell you a tale,
Of a boy and girl
And their love story.
And how he loved her oh so much,
and all the charms she did possess

Now this did happen once upon a time,
When things were not so complex.
And how he worshiped the ground she walked,
And when he looked he became obsessed.

My love is like a storybook story,
But it’s as real as the feelings I feel.
My love is like a storybook story,
But it’s as real as the feelings I feel.

His love was stronger than the power so dark,
A prince could have within his keeping.
His spells to weave and steal her heart,
Within her heart but only sleeping.

My love is like a storybook story,
But it’s as real as the feelings I feel.
My love is like a storybook story,
But it’s as real as the feelings I feel.

And he said:
“Don’t you know I love you oh, so much,
and lay my heart at the foot of your dress.”
And she said:
“Don’t you know that storybook loves,
Always have a happy ending.”

Then he swooped her up just like in the books
And on his stallion they rode away.

My love is like a storybook story,
But it’s as real as the feelings I feel.
My love is like a storybook story,
But it’s as real as the feelings I feel.
