The adjusting of a tie and the colouring in of a face.
We want to be next to each other and no other place.
This day is the beginning of our journey, you see,
because together is the most beautiful place to be.
We choose each other today, tomorrow and every day.
The promise of our love is what we need to live and say.
Our friends and family are the witnesses to this promise.
It won’t be easy: we’ll fight, get angry, make up and kiss.
Tonight, every dance and laugh, celebrate our journey ahead,
a reminder of the beginning of our love and the day we met.
Marrying your best friend is one of the most beautiful things
and so, today is the day our fun filled adventure begins.
