Wedding ceremony vows


We are here today to celebrate the union of Sarah and John (fictional names, just for the purpose of this sample).
This occasion not only marks the beginning of their marriage commitment together. It is also celebration of the love nurtured and shared between these two. They embark today on a new life together, built on the foundations of trust, compassion, and respect.If there is anyone present who knows of any reason why this couple should not be married, you may speak now or forever hold your peace.

(Poetry or quote)

Marriage is an ancient human tradition. The personal and social merits that accompany the bonds of marriage have led to its endurance, and have built the way for us to be standing here before the Universe celebrating the union between these two wonderful people today.

Exchange of Vows (if any):

Invite the couple read.

Declaration of Intent

Sarah and John please join hands and look at each other.
Sarah, do you take John as your cherished husband and promise to stay by his side through sickness and health, joy and sorrow, so long as you both shall live?

– Sarah : I do.

John , will you take Sarah as your cherished wife and promise to stay by her side through sickness and health, joy and sorrow, so long as you both shall live?

– John : I do.

Exchange of Rings (if any)

The wedding rings symbolize the never-ending love you two have for each other. The rings serve as a welcome and constant reminder of the bond you have created with your partner.
Please repeat after me:

I, Sarah , give you, John this ring
as a symbol of my love.

I, John , give you Sarah this ring
as a symbol of my love.


Sarah and John , inasmuch as you have consented to be united in the bonds of matrimony, and you have exchanged your wedding vows before all those present today, therefore, by the power vested in me by the laws of the State of New York, I am pleased to pronounce you married. You may celebrate it with a kiss.
