First Wedding Readings

‘A reading from the book of Sirah’

A loving partner is a safe shelter,

Whoever finds one has found a rare treasure,

A loving partner is something beyond price,

There is no measuring their worth.

A loving partner is a live saving remedy,

And those who respect the lord will find true live,

And as a person is, so is their loved one.

This is the word of the lord.

Thanks be to God.


A reading from the Book of Tobit;

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 loneliness, for each of you will be a companion to the other.  Now you are two bodies but there is only 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.

This is the word of the Lord.


A Reading from the Book of Ruth

Where you go, I will go;
Where you lodge, I will lodge;

your people shall be my people,
and your God my God.

Where you die, I will die-there will I be buried.

May the Lord do thus and so to me,

and more as well, if even death parts me from you!

This is the word of the Lord.

CORINTHIANS 13:4-8a

Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude.

Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends.

This is the word of the Lord


Second Readings

A reading from the first letter of St Paul to the Corinthians

Love is always patient and kind; Love is not jealous or envious,

Never boastful or proud, never rude or selfish.

Love does not demand its own way; it is not irritable or resentful.

It is never glad about injustice, but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.

Love takes no pleasure in other peoples sins but delights in the truth

If you love someone, you will be loyal to them no matter what the cost.

You will always believe them, and always stand your ground defending them.

All the gifts and powers from God will someday come to an end, but love goes on forever.

This is the word of the Lord.

A reading from the first letter of St Paul to the Corinthians
Be ambitious for the higher gifts, and I am going to show you a way that is better than any of them. If I have all the eloquence of men or of angels, but speak without love, I am simply a gong booming or a cymbal clashing. If I have the gift of prophecy, understanding all the mysteries there are, and knowing everything, and if I have faith in all its fullness, to move mountains, but without love, then I am nothing at all. If I give away all that I possess, piece by piece, and if I even let them take my body to burn it, but am without love, it will do me no good whatever.
Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous;
love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offence, and is not resentful.
Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes. Love does not come to an end.

This is the word of the Lord.

A reading from the prophet Jeremiah (31:31-34)

See, the days are coming – it is the Lord who speaks – when I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah, but not like the one I made with their ancestors on the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt.  No, this is the covenant I will make with the House of Israel when those days arrive – it is the Lord who speaks.  Deep within them I will plant my law, writing it on their hearts.  Then I will be their God and they shall be my people.  There will be no further need for neighbour to try to teach neighbour, or brother to say to brother, ‘Learn to know the Lord!’  No, they will all know me, the least no less than the greatest – it is the Lord who speaks.

This is the word of the Lord.
