Poems for a Wedding

by Mary Lansdown
(Southampton England)

This is a poem that I wrote for my husband Paul which I read out to him on our wedding day.


To Paul

From the moment that I met you
I knew my world had changed completely,
for you brought true meaning to my life
and gave me your love so sweetly

I love your cheerful sparkling ways
and how your smile shines like the sun,
you’re so thoughtful, warm and loving
tender, caring and good fun

My heart is filled with happiness
with joy and love and pride
to know from this day forward
I belong right by your side

The vows I’ll say to you today
are meant with all my heart
I’ll be your wife, true friend and lover
until death takes us apart

With all my love always
Mary xxx

For a Wedding

by Wendy
(Australia)

WEDDING

Your special day is finally here,
We'll say congrats and give a cheer.

Everyone is here to honour you,
Under this beautiful sky so blue.

What a beautiful picture you both make,
Cameras a snappin, that photo to take.

The love you share will live on forever,
As it strengthens through all kinds of weather.

Wedding Verse

by Debbie Jones
(Oxford UK)

My sister-in-law penned this verse for her daughter's wedding and would like to submit it to your site.

May the feelings you have as you stand there today
Last you the rest of your life,
As Andy becomes a husband
And Charlotte becomes a wife,

Keep in your minds the love you feel now,
Promise each other not to sleep on a row,
Your future is together , and "I" becomes "we",
Decisions are taken for "us" and not "me"
You share worldly goods all things that are fine
Get used to the fact that they're now "ours", and not "mine",
Look to the future , I say this from the heart
Remember this moment, today is just the start.

Poems for a Wedding

by Jessica Browne
(Cambridge, Ma)

Today will stay with you forever
The greatest in each other's life
You're two people in love at the start of the day
By the end, you'll be husband and wife

Today, you start a new journey
Very much in love, as you should
You'll face all of life's challenges together as one
A team, through the bad times and good

As devoted lovers and all weather friends
It’s the start of a new life for you
As you stand together sharing vows
And each declaring “I Do”

May life bring you all that you wish
May happiness fill both your hearts
May your lives together be happiness itself
And may today be the best of all starts

Wedding Poem

by Jon Bratton
(V4C)

Someone unknown came up with the lovely concept that "love is friendship that has caught fire". I like that but it doesn't seem to have been versified...so I've done that very thing, as a poem for folks about to get hitched


Love is friendship that's caught fire.
It's sharing, caring and forgiving.
It's unquestioning loyalty, through good times and bad,
It's adjoined, united living.

It settles for less than perfection,
Making allowances for less than the best.
Marriage dwells and thrives on the good times
And puts behind it, all the rest

Today, as you embark on this journey
May your future, together, be bright
Douse all the sparks and flickers of strife
But, for sure, keep that fire alight!

Congratulations, and all best wishes for the future

May You Always Be a We

by Jon Bratton
(V4C)

This is my compilation of toasts, mainly of Irish origin, to serve as a well wishing Wedding verse



May you two be best friends forever;
May your love forever be
May you go through life together;
May you always be a "we."

May you always be, for each, a smile
Like the warm, life-giving sun;
Yet when one of you is in pain awhile,
May your suffering be one.

May the flame of love rage like a forest fire
And when not, be a comforting ember
May you never remember what is best forgotten.
May you never forget what you should remember

May you live each day like it was your last,
And live each night just like your first.
May you both live as long as you want,
Yet as long as you live never want or thirst

May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

May you share all your special days,
The happiness of one for two;
May today be just magnificent
As you both say "I do".

Have a truly wonderful day...and life
