‘I wanna make you smile whenever you’re sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad,
All I wanna do is grow old with you,
I’ll get your medicine when your tummy aches,
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks,
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you,
I’ll miss you,
Give you my coat when you are cold,
Even let you hold the remote control,
So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink,
Put you to bed if you’ve had too much to drink,
I could be the man who grows old with you,
I wanna grow old with you’.
Sci-fi fans of the classic Star Trek movies can pay homage to their favourite flick with a quote from the film.
‘Commander, I don’t think you can analyze love.
It’s the greatest mystery of all.
No one knows why it happens or doesn’t.
Love is a chance combination of elements.
Any one thing might be enough to keep it from igniting—a mood, a glance…A remark.
And if we could define love…predict it…it would probably lose its power.’
Those who love the classic romcom When Harry Met Sally can take this heart-warming quote for their big day.
‘I love that after I spend a day with you,
I can still smell your perfume on my clothes.
And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night.
And it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve.
I came here tonight because when you realise you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody,
You want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.’

We too can share and love and have and receive…When I think of the love that these two givers and receivers share, I can not help but envy the lifetime ahead of having and loving and giving and…And then I can’t think of a good word for right here’. – Joey Tribbiani
Lovers of the hilarious science-based sitcom The Big Bang Theory can cement their chemistry with a reading from the quantum physicist Leonard, that stars in the show.
‘We are made of particles that have existed since the moment the universe began. I like to think those atoms traveled fourteen billion years through time and space to create us, so that we could be together and make each other whole.’ – Leonard
Bring some musical magic to your wedding ceremony with a quote from the much-loved musical West Side Story.
‘Make our lives one life,
Day after day, one life.
Now it begins, now we start
One hand, one heart;
Even death won’t part us now.
Mark of our lives one life,
Day after day, one life.
Now it begins, now we start
One hand, one heart,
Even death won’t part us now.’
One for the ultimate romantics, a heart-warming reading from love birds Allie and Noah from The Notebook is the perfect addition to your nuptials.

‘As you are the moon of his life, he shall be your sun and stars.
Your love shall be as ever present as those two celestial bodies, even though they are sometimes hidden from one another’s sight.
Your love will be the guiding force that charts the course of your tomorrows, holds your world together in difficult times, and will make life itself shine bolder and brighter than we human beings have a right to dream of.’
Take a trip down memory lane with the much-loved teen drama, One Tree Hill and some rather lovely words from heartthrob Lucas.
‘Remember tonight, for it is the beginning of always. A promise.
Like a reward for persisting through life so long alone.
A belief in each other and the possibility of love.
A decision to ignore, simply rose above the pain of the past.
A covenant, which at once binds two souls and yet severs prior ties.
A celebration of the chance taken and the challenge that lies ahead.
For two will always be stronger than one, like a team braces against the tempest civil world.
And love will always be the guiding force in our lives.
For tonight is a mere formality.
Only an announcement to the world of feelings long held,
Promises made long ago,
In the sacred spaces of our hearts.’
Chick-flick fans can make a tribute to leading lady, Carrie Bradshaw in the huge hit Sex and the City with this romantic reading.
‘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’’.
Rom-com star Ryan Reynolds will have hearts melting with this cute confession that will tie in perfectly if you’re looking for the right words for your wedding.
‘I wanna marry you because you’re the first person I wanna look at when I wake up in the morning,
And the only one I wanna kiss goodnight.
Because the first time I saw those hands,
I couldn’t imagine not being able to hold them.’
