Why Are Your Wedding Vows So Important?
Wedding vows are the very heart of the ceremony. This is the opportunity of a lifetime for the Bride and Groom to exchange sincere words of love and devotion to one another witnessed by their close family and friends.
The wedding vows should be the highlight of the ceremony so it is worth spending plenty of time ensuring you choose words which truly express your love for one another; your hopes and dreams for your future and your pledge to respect honour and support one another for the rest of your lives together.
If you are getting married in Australia, your celebrant will advise you about the legal requirement for certain words to be spoken – the ‘legal vow’ – which must be spoken before your personalised, romantic vow to one another.
When it is time in the ceremony for the couple to exchange their wedding vows, it is highly recommended that you turn to face each other, hold hands and look into each other’s eyes. This is such a precious moment – a moment you will treasure forever.
In the words of Oscar Wilde: ‘Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden … The consciousness of loving and being loved, brings warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.’
