Wedding Order of Service Readings

He Never Leaves the Seat Up!

He never leaves the seat up
Or wet towels upon the floor
The toothpaste has the lid on
And he always shuts the door!

She’s very clean and tidy
Though she may sometimes delude
Leave your things out at your peril
In a second they’ll have moved!

He’s a very active person
As are all his next of kin
Where as she likes lazy days
He’ll still drag her to the gym!

He romances her and dines her
Home cooked dinners and the like
He even knows her favourite food
And spoils her day and night!

She’s thoughtful when he looks at her
A smile upon his face
Will he look that good in 50 years
When his dentures aren’t in place?!

He says he loves her figure
And her mental prowess too
But when gravity takes her over
Will she charm with her IQ?

She says she loves his kindness
And his patience is a must
And of course she thinks he’s handsome
Which in her eyes is a plus!

They’re both not wholly perfect
But who are we to judge
He can be pig headed
Where as she won’t even budge!

All that said and done
They love the time they spent together
And I hope as I’m sure you do
That this fine day will last forever.

He’ll be more than just her husband
He’ll also be her friend
And she’ll be more than just his wife
She’s be his soul mate ‘till the end

The more familiar two people become, the more the language they speak together departs from that of the ordinary, dictionary-defined discourse. Familiarity creates a new language, an in-house language of intimacy that carries reference to the story the two lovers are weaving together and that cannot be readily understood by others.

Alain de Botton

Paths and Journeys (Adapted from Far from the Madding Crowd, Thomas Hardy)

We are all on our own paths, all on our own journeys.  Sometimes the paths cross, and people arrive at the crossing points at the same time and meet each other. There are greetings, pleasantries are exchanged, and then they move on. But then once in a while the pleasantries become more, friendship grows, deeper links are made, hands are joined and love flies.  The friendship has turned into love.  Paths are joined, one path with two people walking it, both going in the same direction, and sharing each other's journeys.  Today Sharon and Tim are joining their paths.  They will now skip together in harmony and love, sharing joys and sorrows, hopes and fears, strengthening and upholding each other as they walk along side by side.  At home by the fire, whenever I look up, there you will be.  And whenever you look up, there I shall be.

 “The One”

When the one whose hand you’re holding
Is the one who holds your heart
When the one whose eyes you gaze into
Gives your hopes and dreams their start
When the one you think of first and last
Is the one who holds you tight
And the things you plan together
Makes the whole world seem just right
When the one whom you believe in
Puts their faith and trust in you
You’ve found the one and only love
You’ll share the whole life through

 “What is a Soulmate?”

If you have found a smile
That is the sweetest one you’ve known
If you’ve heard within a voice the echoes of your own
If you have felt a touch that stirs the longing of your heart
And still can feel that closeness in the moments you’re apart
If you have filled with wonder at the way two lives can blend
To weave a perfect pattern that is seamless end to end
If you believe some things in life are simply meant to be
Then you have found your soulmate, you hearts own destiny.
