Some Suggested Readings


During the marriage there is an opportunity for one or two short readings from the Bible. You might find it helpful, therefore, to consider this short selection of Biblical passages although, of course, there may be another scriptual extract which you prefer.

The wedding service normally has a Bible reading, which is chosen from a wide range of topics such as love, commitment and the best foundations for living. Some deal more specifically with the love of God and the example Jesus gave us. This sheet gives a number of readings that are suitable for a wedding.

Select two or three likely readings, read them and then ask yourself these questions.

  • Which of the readings makes most sense to me?
  • Are there words, phrases or sentences in some of the readings that I particularly like?
  • Which of the readings do I find most difficult to understand?
  • Are there parts of the readings I don't understand and I want to ask about?
  • Which of the readings reflects best what I hope for in marriage?

Your minister will help you decide on a reading which fits in with the message or sermon.
