When the discerning people of Melbourne ask me to write their ceremony I always look for ways to say what is in the hearts of the marrying couple, and one of the best ways to achieve the right result is to refer to a quotation from an old (or sometimes new) master philosopher.
Regardless of whether you are going to be married outside or inside, in Glen Waverley or Brighton, in a chapel or a private home, every service requires the elements of music and the spoken word.
If we can capture the moment, express the love and devotion and create an atmosphere or mood, then you and your celebrant have done well and your wedding will be memorable for all the right reasons.
My assistant and I have put together this list of appropriate quotations that convey the feeling of love and devotion. They are inspirational wedding quotes that celebrate matrimony in all aspects.
I hope you choose me as your celebrant for your Melbourne wedding, I hope you let me help you find the right words to express the love that is in your hearts on your wedding day.
