We are gathered here together
To wish you all the best;
This year will be wonderful
And so will all the rest.

Congratulations on finding your true love
It will stand the test of time;
We both hope that many blessings
Cover the path together that you climb.

We hope the rings that you now share
And the vows you both have said;
May entwine your hearts and minds
And stand you in good stead.

Hearts bursting with love and happiness
With smiles all around;
Lets cover you in confetti
And get this party off the ground.

When two people let their hearts become one
They surpass the strength of metal;
They are so glad they waited
And that for no other settled.

Their words are sweet and strong
Smelling sweet like roses in the dew;
There is no sweeter couple
Than the pair of you.
Congratulations.
Maggie-May

Wedding Poems

The bells do chime, the florists been
Everyones suited and booted in their best;
They're all arriving well before time
The bride is later than the rest.

As she arrives in the limousine
Her heart is all of a quiver;
The sound of the organ starting to play
Sending tingles and she starts to shiver.

The man she loves is standing there
Handsome and very smart;
She's looked at him many a time
But loved him from the start.

Their eyes did meet across a crowded room
At someone else's wedding;
As soon as they saw each other
They could see where this was heading.

Lets ring those bells and sing along
To all the hymns they've chosen;
Wishing them both the very best
And all their future be rosen.
Maggie-May

Happiness is at journeys end
Along a narrow path;
The two of you must become one
You can't get there with two halves.

So on this journey take a bucketful of love
Spiced with wit and laughter on the way;
And have a wonderful journey
Down this marriage highway.
Maggie-May

The crowd is ready to witness this wedding blessing
On a beautiful sunny day;
The bride in white on the pillion
The groom waiting by the bay.

This sacred ground is wild and free
This marriage will be too;
We wish you both all the best
On your wedding blessing day to you!

Pagan Wedding Poems

~~~~

The handfasting is a different ceremony
Based on ancient tradition;
In days gone by it was highly thought
As the very rite to position.

There is a time that it is set upon
For this rite to last a year and a day;
After which time either one can utter
To call an end to it and say nay.

The hearts and minds are sharing love
The bodies and spirits too;
Full of love everlasting and safely entwined
To test the love through and through.

It could last forever or maybe not
It will be up to the both of you;
We will witness this happy event
Sending all our love to you.

The tying the knot is an old,old saying
It springs from this, don't you know;
The Priest or Priestess would bind the wrists
As a sacred bond going to and fro.

Within nature the ceremony held
With flowers all around;
Natures beauty and romance
All magic and revelry will abound.

Exchanging vows and exchanging rings
As the two now will become one;
The sacredness of this very act
The thread of love has been spun.

The figure of eight with their hands now make
The sun and the moon are here too;
The consummation of this very thing
Symbolising joining the two.

The Giving of Rings Verse 

I take you my heart
At the rising of the moon
And the setting of the stars.
To love and to honour
Through all that may come.
Through all our lives together
In all our lives,
May we be reborn
That we may meet and know
And love again,
And remember.

Pagan Wedding Poems

~~~~

You have heather in your bouquet
For luck to come your way;
Dry it in the cupboard
For you to remember today.

Lucky horse shoes on your arm
Is a symbol of good luck;
Exchanging love and looks to die &
Whispers make your heart run amuck.

~~~~

The broomstick is for abundance
Of happiness and love;
Food and wine to be blessed and shared
By Priests and Priestesses who have spoken of.

The love and commitment are a sacred act
Between these two watched by all those present;
The celebration of their love
Of their commitment to each other and intent.
Maggie-May

Symbols and magic and certain colors
Are all part of this event;
The colors are used for the cords
And the hand tying represents.

Many different qualities that 
The couple have now chose;
Ones that apply and appeal to them
Rituals of protection I suppose.

Traditional Celtic Wedding Vow


I vow you the first cut of my meat, 
the first sip of my wine, 
from this day it shall only your name I cry out in the night
and into your eyes that I smile each morning; 
I shall be a shield for you back as you are for mine, 
no shall a grievous word be spoken about us, 
for our marriage is sacred between us 
and no stranger shall hear my grievance. 
Above and beyond this,
I will cherish and honor you through this life 
and into the next. 

~~~~

I have a sixpence in my shoe
This will always bring me luck;
Some wheat to always have enough
And from danger always pluck.
Maggie-May

Scottish Wedding Prayer 
Lord help us to remember when 
We first met and the strong 
love that grew between us. 
To work that love into 
practical things so that nothing 
can divide us. 
We ask for words both kind 
and loving and hearts always 
ready to ask forgiveness 
as well as to forgive. 
Dear Lord, we put our 
marriage into your hands.
