Handfasting Wedding CeremonyLove is the greatest thing that we can give to one another...for love is a wondrous gift; no other can take its place, but it can take the place of all the rest. When two people entrust one another with their innermost feelings, their hearts, their lives, the bond between them strengthens and surrounds them until each becomes a part of the other. This closeness cannot be measured by time, words or circumstance. It is a wholeness of the soul, a silence, and the highest form of intimacy.
are gathered here today, because love gathers us and especially because
love has found Leanne and Robert, and woven them together, into the great
web of life. We are gathered to remember and rejoice, to recount with one
another, that it is love, always love, that leads us to our true
destination and to celebrate that Lorraine and Robert have finally
is the Partners in Life union of Leanne and Robert. We are here
to listen, with love in our hearts, and to share with them, their
celebration of love.
To love is to constantly search for new
ways to bring each other to happiness, to make the most of every moment
you share together, and marvel at how your feelings for one another keep
rising to new dimensions.
To love is to create an oasis of
tranquility for one another and a quiet place, apart from others, where
you need not pretend...where you can be yourselves.... And know within
your hearts, you will be accepted by one another.
love is to greet each day with anticipation...Always eager for another
opportunity to share new adventures...And gather up new memories TOGETHER!
To love is to follow the rainbow
through the rain, to be able to laugh at yourselves and be willing to
say...."I was wrong, I'm sorry"...To forgive, and more
importantly, to FORGET, and to always believe and trust in one another.
To love is to watch with wonder all the
miracles of creation, to find beauty in all the simple things of life, and
to find, within ourselves, a deeper appreciation and a new awareness of
how wonderful it is to be alive...To be happy...To be…TOGETHER.
To love is to come together from the pathways of our past and then move forward...Hand in hand, along the uncharted roads of our future, ready to risk, to dream, and to dare.... And always believe that all things are possible with faith and love.
Robert, you will give this ring to Leanne, as a symbol that love lives deep within your heart and soul, that you are bound to her always, with your love, soul and heart.
With this ring I commit to you my love, soul and heart.
With this ring I commit to you my love, soul and hearts.
the good true light within you guide your way together. May your dreams
come true and when they don’t may new dreams arise.
And long, long years from now, may you look at one another and be able to say, ‘Because of you I have become the person I longed to be’.
