April and Deidre, Haverhill, MA. September 25th 2008
Their ceremony was very romantic and took place at a castle. They shared the following as part of their vows.
Give ring to Deidre, she places ring on Aprils finger
Please repeat after me.
with this ring…….
I Deidre take you April to be my lawfully wedded partner. I promise to support you, to laugh with you, to work with you and to share with you all of life’s experiences. In good times and in bad. Like this ring, my love has no beginning and no end, but it has strength and beauty, and will be there for you as long as we both shall live.’
Bread and Wine ceremony
As your first act as a married couple I ask you to share this wine [hand goblet, brides drink]
May you never be thirsty
As your second act as a married couple I ask you to share this bread [hand bread, brides feed each other]
May you never be hungry
As your third act as a married couple I ask you to share gifts of love [hand gifts, brides exchange]
May abundance always be in your life and love be with you always.
Now you will feel no rain,
For each of you shall be shelter to the other.
Now you shall feel no cold,
For each of you shall be warmth to the other,
Now there is no more loneliness,
For each of you will be companion to the other.
Although you are two bodies,
There is only one life before you.
Go now to enter the days of your togetherness,
May your days be long and good upon the earth.
