Spiritual wedding readings are becoming increasingly popular with couples tying the knot. Whether they’re looking to break away from religious traditions or express their personal beliefs, many couples find that a spiritual reading can give their big day that unique touch.
If you’ve decided to begin your marriage with a spiritual or inspirational message, you may struggle to decide where to start. Well, look no further because we’ve created this guide to finding the perfect spiritual wedding reading for you and your partner…
Is there that one poem that seems to have stuck with you for years? Perhaps it gives you chills whenever you hear it or you find yourself reciting it line for line on a regular basis. If so, why not include it in your reading?
If you’re unfamiliar with poetry, it’s not too late to read up on some of the greats. Have a look online for the works of E. E. Cummings, Lord Byron, and Carol Ann Duffy – just a few poets known for their romantic words. You never know, these poems might also provide you with valuable enlightenment in other aspects of your life.
Proverbs are wise sayings that offer advice on how to live life. If you’re struggling to decide what to include in your reading, proverbs could provide you with the inspiration needed.
We’ve grown so used to hearing English proverbs such as “absence makes the heart grow fonder” and “two heads are better than one” that their meanings seem less profound and special over time. Thankfully, since every culture and language has its own proverbs and pearls of wisdom, there are thousands of phrases to uncover from across the globe. You may enjoy the following:
“Married couples who love each other tell each other a thousand things without talking” – Chinese proverb
“He who treads the path of love walks a thousand meters as if it were only one” – Japanese proverb
“It is love that makes the impossible, possible” – Indian proverb
If you’re feeling really creative, why not look to the stars for inspiration on your reading. Even if you don’t share the same personality traits, perhaps your signs complement each other perfectly by championing your strengths while making up for one another’s shortfalls.
You could even incorporate your star signs into your vows by promising to make the most of your best qualities while also pledging to improve your shortfalls.
Why not take inspiration from your favourite authors and scatter snippets of your favourite books throughout your readings? You could read a long extract in its entirety or combine small passages together.
If you’re a fan of Wuthering Heights, you may wish to say: “He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”
Pride and Prejudice lovers may prefer: “In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
By mixing different extracts together you can really personalise your reading and find one that perfectly captures the love between yourself and your partner.
The best thing about choosing a spiritual wedding reading is that it opens up a world of possibilities and enables you to be creative while adding a unique touch to your wedding.
