Beautiful Lesbian and Gay Wedding Ceremony Readings

1. The human heart curves like a road

What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it’s curved like a road through mountains.

Tennessee Williams

Because it’s not important who shares the love, but it’s important to be shared with someone.

There is nothing more valuable than finding the one to understand you and accept you just as you are.

This is one of the best marriage equality readings for weddings.

2. Love is a temporary madness

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 promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don’t blush, I am telling you some truths. 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

Louis de Bernières

One of the most beautiful same sex wedding readings, and it’s true!

After all the fires have settled, we’re only left with what we’d call true love. It’s real and it’s a part of everything we do.

3. Love wholly and completely

When I love, I love: wholly, thoroughly, completely, drowning in everything. Every glance can be a conversation, eyes just playing and saying what needs to be said. Silence is loud, and the air becomes heavy. I want you. I want all of you.

Warsan Shire

By hearing this, I really want to find my special someone.

I can’t stop but think that true love is the only thing that’s missing.

4. Love is the ultimate outlaw

Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won’t adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is to sign on as its accomplice. Instead of vowing to honor and obey, maybe we should swear to aid and abet. That would mean that security is out of the question. The words ‘make’ and ‘stay’ become inappropriate. My love for you has no strings attached. I love you for free.

Tom Robbins’ Still Life With Woodpecker”

And what better feeling can you think of besides having someone to love you for you?

With all your flaws and imperfections, with all the little things that make you who you are?

5. No barriers with love

Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.

Maya Angelou

This is incredibly beautiful to hear and can be a part of any kind of lesbian wedding readings, making it truly unique.

6. The greatest treasure of all

I think I was searching for treasures or stones, in the clearest of pools, when your face … when your face, like the moon in a well, where I might wish … might well wish, for the iced fire of your kiss; only on water my lips, where your face … where your face was reflected, lovely, not really there when I turned, to look behind at the emptying air … the emptying air.

Carol Ann Duffy

It’s true that not all of the things in life are what we’d expect and sometimes things are much more different than we imagine.

But the only thing that is constant and pure is love.

7. The future belongs to hearts

The future belongs to hearts even more than it does to minds
Love, that is the only thing that can occupy and fill eternity
In the infinite, the inexhaustible is requisite
Love participates of the soul itself
It is of the same nature
Like it, it is the divine spark;
like it, it is incorruptible, indivisible, imperishable.

Victor Hugo

The truth is that you don’t have to impress someone.

All you have to do is find a way to express all your feelings and be grateful to have someone to share them with.

Lesbian and gay wedding ceremony readings are like any other after all, just with more passion involved.

8. Formidable and immeasurable

Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible — it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.

Barbara de Angelis

9. More than a spark

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing, and forgiving. It is loyalty through good times and bad. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Love is content with the present; it hopes for the future and it doesn’t brood over the past. It is the day-in and -out chronicles of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments, big victories, and common goals. If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things that you lack. If you don’t have it, no matter what else is there, it isn’t enough.

Ann Landers

10. Not meant to be caged

Love demands expression. It will not stay still, stay silent, be good, be modest, be seen and not heard, no. It will break out in tongues of praise, the high note that smashes the glass and spills the liquid.

Jeanette Winterson

11. Immovable and unshakable

Love is not love, which alters when it alteration finds, or bends with the remover to remove. O no! It is an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken; it is the star to every wand’ring bark, whose worth is unknown, although his height be taken.

William Shakespeare

12. Words of wisdom from the Little Dragon

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.

Bruce Lee

13. No accident

Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens. A good marriage must be created. In the art of marriage, 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.

Wilferd Arlan Peterson

14. Growing and taking root

There is nothing more lovely in life than the union of two people whose love for one another has grown through the years, from the small acorn of passion, into a great rooted tree.
