"BECAUSE TO THE DEPTHS OF ME, I LONG TO LOVE ONE PERSON,
WITH ALL MY HEART, MY SOUL, MY MIND, MY BODY…"

MUSIC, SONG, WORDS, SYMBOLIC ACTS
There are many, many readings, poems, symbolic acts and songs that we can include in your humanist wedding ceremony. And none of them need to be dry and boring.
Readings, poetry, music and rituals are a great way of giving your nearest and dearest an important role to play. As well as being poignant and heartfelt, emotional or fun, they also give you a moment to relax into the ceremony, letting your guests focus on someone other than you for a few minutes. So that you can take a moment to breathe, and take it all in.
We can use readings, poems, rituals or song as they are, adapt them, or you or your guests can write ones that are unique to you. Every single wedding is led by the couple. Every single script is different.
