Our fav non-religious wedding readings

Friday, July 31, 2020

Once you've decided on the type of ceremony you're having, it's time to start thinking about wedding readings. Some people think readings are just for church weddings, but that is a myth! We've rounded up our top 10 favourite non-religious wedding readings for your ceremony. These can be read by any of your guests, it doesn't have to be the registrar or someone in your bridal party. Most people choose to have 1-2 readings, but we recommend discussing this with whoever is taking your ceremony. 

1. Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer

I love you also means I love you more than anyone loves you,
or has loved you, or will love you,
and also, I love you in a way that no one loves you,
or has loved you, or will love you, and also,
I love you in a way that I love no one else,
and never have loved anyone else,
and never will love anyone else.

2. A Lovely Love Story by Edward Monkton

The fierce Dinosaur was trapped inside his cage of ice. Although it was
cold he was happy in there. It was, after all, his cage.
Then along came the Lovely Other Dinosaur.
The Lovely Other Dinosaur melted the Dinosaur’s cage with kind words
and loving thoughts.
I like this Dinosaur thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur.
Although he is fierce he is also tender and he is funny.
He is also quite clever though I will not tell him this for now.
I like this Lovely Other Dinosaur, thought the Dinosaur. She is beautiful
and she is different and she smells so nice.
She is also a free spirit which is a quality I much admire in a dinosaur.
But he can be so distant and so peculiar at times, thought the Lovely
Other Dinosaur.
He is also overly fond of things.
Are all Dinosaurs so overly fond of things?
But her mind skips from here to there so quickly thought the Dinosaur.
She is also uncommonly keen on shopping.
Are all Lovely Other Dinosaurs so uncommonly keen on shopping?
I will forgive his peculiarity and his concern for things, thought the Lovely
Other Dinosaur. For they are part of what makes him a richly
charactered individual.
I will forgive her skipping mind and her fondness for shopping, thought
the Dinosaur. For she fills our life with beautiful thoughts and wonderful
surprises. Besides, I am not unkeen on shopping either.
Now the Dinosaur and the Lovely Other Dinosaur are old.
Look at them.
Together they stand on the hill telling each other stories and feeling the
warmth of the sun on their backs.
And that, my friends, is how it is with love.
Let us all be Dinosaurs and Lovely Other Dinosaurs together.
For the sun is warm.
And the world is a beautiful place.

3. 'Carrie's Poem' from Sex and the City

His hello was the end of her endings
Her laugh was their first step down the aisle
His hand would be hers to hold forever
His forever was as simple as her smile
He said she was what was missing
She said instantly she knew
She was a question to be answered
And his answer was "I do"

4. "The Art of Marriage" by Wilferd A. Peterson
The little things are the big things. It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once a day.

It is never going to sleep angry.
It is at no time taking the other for granted;
the courtship should not end with the honeymoon,
it should continue through all the years.

It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating
gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not expecting the husband to wear a halo or the wife to have wings of an angel.
It is not looking for perfection in each other.

It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.

It is finding room for the things of the spirit.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful. It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.
It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.

5. Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres

Love is a temporary madness,
it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides.
And when it subsides you have to make a decision.
You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together
that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.
Because this is what love is.
Love is not breathlessness,
it is not excitement,
it is not the promulgation of eternal passion.
That is just being “in love” which any fool can do.
Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away,
and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.
Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground,
and when all the pretty blossom have fallen from their branches,
they find that they are one tree and not two.

6. "A Marriage" - Mark Twain

A marriage...makes of two fractional lives a whole;
it gives to two purposeless lives a work, and doubles the strength of each to
perform it;
it gives two questioning natures a reason for living, and something to live for;
it will give a new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, a
new beauty to the earth, and a new mystery to life.

7. 'Wild Awake' by Hilary T Smith

“People are like cities: We all have alleys and gardens and secret
rooftops and places where daisies sprout between the sidewalk cracks,
but most of the time all we let each other see is a postcard glimpse of a
skyline or a polished square. Love lets you find those hidden places in
another person, even the ones they didn’t know were there, even the
ones they wouldn’t have thought to call beautiful themselves."

8. Apache Wedding Prayer
“Now you will feel no rain,
For each of you will be shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
For each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there is no more loneliness,
For each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two bodies,
But there is one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling place,
To enter into the days of your togetherness.
And may your days be good and long upon the earth.”

9. You are the bubbles - Rachel Bright

“Together, you are
the bubbles in one another’s champagne,
the morning sun through the window,
the breaking of a smile.
Together, you are
the one doughnut in the bag with more jam than any of the others,
that photo where everyone looks great,
the know-it-all-sing-out-of-tune-at-the-top-of-your-voice
chorus of a favourite song.
Together you are
the beginnings of a big idea,
the twinkly bits that hang in the sky after the firework goes bang,
the cold thin air at the top of a mountain,
the only two people in a crowded room.
Together you are
that unforgettable day of a holiday,
an accidental adventure, a chocolate chip,
pages ninety-eight to ninety-nine of a well-thumbed Mills & Boon,
a bbq with friends, the spray of the sea,
 the nose of the cheese,
a hug, a kiss, a hold-my-hand,
a decision which, looking back, will seem to be
the most excellent you ever made.
Together you are
the unburstable bubbles of the very best things in life,
the only things any of us ever need.”

10.  "Love's Philosophy" by Percy Bysshe Shelley
The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean;
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single:
All things by a law divine
In another's being mingle—
Why not I with thine?

See, the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister flower could be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

And for the Disney fans, we've included 3 sweet bonus readings...

Nightmare Before Christmas

My dearest friend, if you don't mind
I'd like to join you by your side
Where we can gaze into the stars
And sit together, now and forever
For it is plain as anyone can see
We're simply meant to be.


If I never knew you
If I never felt this love
I would have no inkling of
How precious life can be
And if I never held you
I would never have a clue
How at last I'd find in you
The missing part of me
If I never knew you
I'd be safe but half as real
Never knowing I could feel
A love so strong and true
I'm so grateful to you
I'd have lived my whole life through
Lost forever
If I never knew you.

What’s Mickey without Minnie?

What’s Mickey without Minnie?
What’s Tigger without Pooh?
What’s Donald without Daisy?
What’s me without you?
And when Elmo isn’t ticklish,
And Pooh gear hates honey.
When Tigger stops bouncing,
And Goofy isn’t funny.
When Peter Pan can’t fly,
And Simba never roars,
When Alice in Wonderland
Can’t fit through small doors.
When Dumbo’s ears are small,
And happily ever after isn’t true,
That’s when I’ll stop loving you.

Engagement Shoot: Future Mr + Mrs Walls

Sunday, July 26, 2020

Cat + Nathan
30.07.2019 | Yorkshire Lavender Field | Belle and Beau Photography 
Mr and Mrs Walls are getting married at Carlton Towers on 22nd May 2021, they sadly had to postpone their original date of 30th May 2020 - you might recognise them from Lockdown Love: Part 2. Bride to be Cat shares their stunning fairytale engagement shoot with us...
Why did you decide to have a pre-wedding shoot? 
We wanted some nice engagement pictures of us and it was a great opportunity to meet our photographer for the first and get to know her and practice some poses! It’s quite common in Asian weddings now to have a pre-wedding shoot and to display the photos taken at the wedding for guests to see. They usually dress up in wedding dresses but we decided to not go that far!
How did you meet and how long have you been together? 
We met on Bumble in March 2018, so we’d only been together a few months before we moved in, relocating from London to Leeds and we got engaged 9 months later.

Tiffany's Bridal Edit: I said YES to the dress (again!)

Sunday, July 19, 2020

After 23 Dresses were tried on, 1 dress was already bought, and a tad too much of the budget was spent; I finally said yes to THE dress on the 18th August 2019. You may be thinking '1 dress already bought!?', well let me explain...

My Wed2B Experience
I originally said yes to the dress back in April 2018. At that point I had been engaged for 6 months, we had over 2 years to go until the big day, and I had absolutely no intention of buying a dress any time soon. However, we had a trip to Brighton planned with my fiances family, and knew they had a Wed2Be store there, so I thought maybe I should just go and try some dresses on to get an idea of which styles I liked. BAD IDEA! (Let me start by saying that personally I didn't have a great experience with Wed2Be, I tried on 4 dresses, each in a different style, and felt very pressured towards saying yes and purchasing a dress, even though I was only able to try on very few). Of the dresses I tried on that day, there was just one I felt I looked good in, it was a big princess gown, which is completely not what I ever wanted and wasn't very me, but in that moment I felt very pretty! I ended up feeling very overwhelmed and buying the dress...

That very same day when we got home, I said to my fiance that I felt like I had made the wrong decision and he said to give it some time to think about it. For the next week or so, all I could think about was how much I didn't enjoy my dress shopping experience, and it was something I had previously been so excited for. I did't look at the dress again, I popped it in the loft and didn't turn back. I thought that maybe if I left it and came back to it that I would try it on, fall in love with it, and have 'the moment' and would be great.

Fast forward 18 months, I had a hair and make-up trial arranged. My friend and I thought it might be a good idea to get the dress out and try it on with my hair and make up done up, so I would truly feel like a bride! I had my hopes high, tried the dress on and... I cried! I didn't like the dress at all. I felt frumpy, and it really didn't suit me at all. At that point the decision was made, I needed a new wedding dress!

Wedding Dress Shopping - Round 2!
I booked in to 2 different bridal shops for my second dress shopping experience, as they were both highly recommended in my local area; Ava Louise Bridal and Brides of Southampton. 

I tried on so many beautiful dresses that day, and had SO MUCH FUN! I honestly had such a great experience this time round. My wedding dress was actually the first dress I tried on that day, followed by 18 more, but none of them made me smile as much as that first one. I actually didnt like the dress on the hanger, but the lady in the shop picked it out for me after I explained what I was looking for. I am so glad I tried it!

I get to go back in and collect my dress in November, and I cannot wait to slip back into my beautiful gown and have that amazing feeling all over again. 

Here are some of the dresses that didn't quite make the cut... this first one was my second favourite, and I very nearly said yes to dress, but just couldn't get that first one out of my mind. 

Who can guess what THE dress looks like? I was thinking of sharing a sneak peek, but you'll all just wait to wait until the big day. 460 days to go...

Harpist Sam MacAdam Shares Some Notes

Saturday, July 18, 2020

Supplier Takeover: Sam MacAdam Harp
Est. 2011 │ Location: Glasgow (available to travel)
We caught up with harpist Sam MacAdam to chat all things wedding music, including some of the most popular harp song requests, some advice for brides and grooms to be and the best thing about being part of a wedding ceremony. As well as a talented harpist, Sam is a member of Scottish Ceilidh band the Sleekit Beasties. Sam is based in Glasgow but travels to cover weddings across Scotland and Northern England.

What makes your service unique?
I love playing the harp for couples, and I love helping make the day exactly as people envision it. Everything about my service is completely custom – from your magical bridal entrance, to the atmosphere of the drinks reception. I try to match the tone of the day with song choices from my extensive repertoire and love learning new requests for the ceremony itself.
I studied both traditional Scottish clarsach and classical pedal harp at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where I achieved a first class Honours degree in music performance. This, along with 8 years of performing in a pop/ceilidh band means that my musical interests are wide and varied and I can help realise your vision for the day.

How did you get into the wedding industry?
Playing the harp, you quickly find that your friends and loved ones request you to play at their weddings – which I absolutely love! That was how I found myself playing at my first wedding, and from then on I was hooked.
I’m doing the same thing to my friend – she’s playing at my wedding (which was meant to be just  7 weeks away and now is in another 111 weeks…) and it’ll be extra special having her play me down the aisle.

Favourite part of your job?
I really love learning people’s new requests. From famous songs which I can make sound exactly like the track (but…harpy) to obscure B sides which I have to painstakingly transcribe from half forgotten youtube recordings. It sounds silly, but there’s nothing better than having the couple come up to me afterwards and tell me ‘You got that spot on! That’s even better than I dreamed of’.
I also really love the process pre-wedding, I feel like I get a sneak peek into the day itself. You see the groom and groomsmen excitedly/nervously check everything’s in place, hear their run throughs with their celebrant/humanist/minister, see incredibly proud parents take pictures of the ceremony room before everything starts. I feel so incredibly honoured to be invited in for couples’ intimate moments – and it’s hard not to feel so incredibly full of love after a day at a wedding.

Choosing the aisle music...
This piece of music really sets the tone for the whole wedding. Is it formal, upbeat, lighthearted, modern?

It needs to be something that you feel confident walking down to, that makes you feel like a million dollars, and also something quite slow and calming so that you can take your time on your entrance. As long as the speed is spot on (and I often chat with brides before hand to discuss the final speed as sometimes a fast song can be slowed down to make it easier to walk to) then it can be absolutely anything.

All genres work well, so here's a selection of five of my favourite songs to play (and some of the most popular choices) spanning Classical, Traditional Scottish, Pop, and Disney.
  1. Pachabel's Canon
  2. Now I See The Light
  3. Highland Cathedral
  4. Here Comes The Sun
  5. Perfect
  6. And a cheeky sixth choice of 'Will ye Go, Lassie, Go?' which is what I chose for my August wedding (although I might change my mind by the rescheduled date!)
Are there any harp music trends we should look out for?
In terms of music, there’s definitely songs that cycle in and out of fashion. Lately there’s been a resurgence of ‘traditional’ wedding songs – Highland Cathedral, Pachabel’s Canon, the Mendelssohn wedding march. Last year the trend was for pop and Disney covers on the harp, and the tone of weddings this year seemed slightly more formal. Who knows what it will be like when we start up again!

Best piece of advice for couples currently planning their wedding...
If your wedding has been postponed it’s so hard sometimes to just keep the excitement going. It’s OK to take a break. It’s OK to put the planning to the side. If you haven’t managed to keep all your original suppliers for your rescheduled date then that will be OK. It’s a really tough time right now for everyone, don’t beat yourself up with wedding stress on top of it – there’ll be time for that later.
Everything on the day will be beautiful – you’ll have your friends and family and your new husband/wife and I think we’ll all be so excited and happy for weddings when they’re allowed to happen – and being with so many special people will be even more meaningful than before. 

Prices start from £250 - Sam's pricing is about to undergo a restructuring but any bookings made before October 2020 will honour the current prices.
