Wedding Readings for The Couple: Rumi

WRD icon

Welcome back to our Sunday segment, Wedding Readings Ideas. Here we source and share some of our favourite texts perfect for weddings. This week we are focusing on wedding readings for the couple. We try and include a variety of ideas so that there is a reading suggestion for every kind of speech at every kind of wedding!

If you are looking for a reading suggestion for a specific event, please feel free to leave us a comment so we can help you source one.

The Reading

This week’s reading is “my first love story” by Rumi.


The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.

Why We love It

This is one of our favourite wedding readings for the couple. It is simple and sweet, whilst also capturing the depths and expanse of love. This is the perfect way to tell your partner that they are your soulmate. The short length of this reading is really handy because you will be able to fit it in nicely around other speeches. It could even make a great addition to your vows!

If you like this reading, keep your eyes peeled next Sunday and every Sunday from here on out for more wedding readings for the couple, bridal party, parents and more.
