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 your vow renewal. 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.
This week’s reading is an excerpt from The Amber Spyglass by Phillip Pullman.
I will love you forever; whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again… I’ll be looking for you, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you… we’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams… and when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we’ll be joined so tight…
This is one of our favourite wedding readings for your vow renewal, because it is a heart wrenching description of eternal love. This beautiful piece of writing perfectly encapsulates how it feels to be connected to your soulmate forever. We love how Pullman describes love as transcending death, and any physical barriers. The themes of nature, rebirth and reincarnation are lovely to tie in to a vow renewal.
