Marriage Celebrant Jenny Stevens
Personal Vows are what you say to each other after your Legal Vows. You may like to select a pre-written one from the list below or some of these may inspire you to write your own. I can also write your Personal Vows for you by gathering some information and some humor in your Vows goes a long way when mixed with the right amount of love :) Your Personal Vows will go on your wine bottle which is a gift from me to the two of you xx
I choose you above all others to continue to share my life with me and I intend to keep loving you as you are. I promise that trust, support, and love without reservation will be with us as long as we both shall live. Together side by side, step by step, I promise to continue our journey through our future together.”
You are the love of my life and the joy of my soul, you have brought me a world I had thought could only be dreamed of. Your laughter melts me, your tears hurt me your love moves me in a way that words cannot describe, I love you so much.
“Because of you, I laugh, I smile, and I dare to dream again. I look forward with great joy to spending the rest of my life with you, caring for one another, nurturing each other, being there for each other in all that life has for us, and I vow to be true and faithful for as long as we both shall live.”
“Before we met I thought I was happy, but after we decided our future lay together, I became truly happy. Before we met I thought I had everything I wanted, but after we decided our future lay together, I realized I cannot live without you. Before we met I thought I knew what true love was, but after we decided our future lay together, discovered what true love really is.”
“Today, I join my life to yours, not merely as your wife, but as your friend, your lover, and your confidant. Let me be the shoulder you lean on, the rock on which you rest, the companion of your life. With you I will walk my path from this day forward.”
“I promise to walk by your side forever, and to love, help and encourage you, in all that you do. I will take time to talk with you, to listen to you, and to care for you. I will share your laughter and your tears, as your partner, lover and best friend. Everything I am and everything I have is yours, now and forever.”
On this our Wedding Day, I will cherish our friendship, and love you today, tomorrow and forever. I will trust you and honour you. I will love you faithfully, through the best and the worst, through the difficult and the easy. Whatever comes our way, I will be there always. As I have given you my hand to hold, so I give you my life to keep.”
I will cherish our union, and love you more each day than I did before. I will trust you and respect you, laugh with you, cry with you, loving you faithfully through good times and bad, regardless of the obstacles we may face together.”

The very thought of you brings such happiness to my soul. You envelope my being, making me feel so complete. It is so rare to find two people as alike as the two of us. And I will forever be grateful that we found each other. Babe, you are amazing, there is not one thing about you that I would change.
"As each day passes I treasure the memories that we have created. We have laughed together, cried together, talked and listened to each other, done outrageous fun things together, fought and made up together, relied upon and needed each other. Your smile and touch melt me, you have my heart unconditionally. You truly are my soul mate, I am so proud that you have chosen me to be your Wife”
“You are my one true love. I will cherish our union and love you more each day than I did before.

I vow to pick you up when you are down, cherish you and be the best husband I can possibly be and love you every day the way I love you right now”
“From this moment, I name take you name as my best friend for life. I pledge to honour, encourage and support you through our walk together.

“Take my hand. Come with me, together we’ll rise above the madness, to the heights of never, to the depths of never, we’ll crawl ’til we can walk, then we’ll walk ’til we can run. Then we’ll run ’til we can fly and we need never to come down! Three free souls – Yours, Mine and Ours.”
"Johnathan, you are my best friend and I love you.

I can't wait to see where our travels take us, and build a safe, happy and loving life together."
"Susie, I adore you and love you. We are about to embark on a journey of happiness, joy and self-discovery. It is you I choose to do this with. You entered my life many years ago as a treasured friend and now you join me as my life partner. I commit to love and care for you when times are great and when your heart is heavy, to laugh with you, to comfort you and hold you close where ever our travels take us. I promise to love you now and the rest of our lives together."

"If you have love in your life, It can make up for a great many things you lack. If you don’t have it, no matter what else there is, it is not enough"
“Our love extends beyond earth, sea, wind, and flame. It is greater than who we are and meaningless without us. It is more powerful than our past, yet the foundation for our future. It has brought us here today to become one in the eyes of our family and friends, for all days to come. Our love is the essence of our lives”
“With you, love means freedom. Freedom to love you without judgement and freedom to be yours while maintaining the very soul of me. So on this day, a day we choose together to meet in union before family and friends, I accept you as my partner, in the name of love. My most cherished freedom is now the freedom to love you for a lifetime”
“My aim is not to change you, but rather to grow with you. I bring a stronger heart to this choice than I have brought to any other. But I sense that it will grow stronger still with days lived along-side you. Stay with me. Learn with me. Live by my side. I will do the same faithfully and joyously”

“I promise to be your partner in times of joy and in times of trouble, to provide for and support you in friendship, trust, and love. I promise to work with you to build our lives together. May we grow, our lives intertwined, our love bringing us closer. Let us create a home based on love. May it be a home filled with peace, with happiness, and with love”
“May my heart be your shelter, my arms be your refuge, for when your strength alone will not carry you through, my strength will forever be there for you. I open my heart and arms to you with the promise of everlasting love, understanding, and hope for our tomorrows yet to come. Side by side, step by step, may we journey together through our eternity”

I will weep with you, laugh with you, and always listen to you with a patient heart. You are the most beautiful gift in my life and it is the most humbling honour to love you”
“I choose now to stay this path with you, wherever it leads, whatever the outcome; To respect the unique person that you are and help you to become who you will be. To travel with you through the adventures of life, loving you at my side; in all that we will find, I pledge my friendship, my faith and my love”
“This is the moment. The one I have prayed for - the one I have dreamed of. From this moment on, my life will be shared with another. I promise to you my love, my friendship, my loyalty, and all that life gives to me. We have come together as one, and nothing will ever diminish the love I have for you, nor the happiness you bring me”
“You are my best friend and everlasting companion. You have brought me the truest happiness I have ever known. I take joy today in committing my life to yours. With this ring I promise to stand with you as we share this life, and cherish the memories we make together”

From this day forward, when you need strength, I will give you mine. When you need encouragement, I will listen and understand. When you need solace and comfort and the silent speech of love, I will be there”
The following two Vows you read a line each
"I Promise You"
I can't promise you that dark clouds will not hover over our lives or that the future will bring us many rainbows. I can't promise you that tomorrow will be perfect or that life will be easy. I can promise you my everlasting devotion, my loyalty, my respect, and my unconditional love for a lifetime. I can promise that I'll always be here for you, to listen and to hold your hand, and I'll always do my best to make you happy, and make you feel loved. I can promise that I'll see you through any crisis, and pray with you, dream with you, build with you and also cheer you on and encourage you. I can promise that I'll willingly be your protector, your adviser, your counselor, your friend, your family, your everything.
Say this together I promise you”
“I am so glad that you are a part of my life.
It is a privilege to know you, to share myself with you, and to walk together on the paths that take us in so many beautiful directions. I had heard of soul mates before, but I never knew such a person could exist, until I met you. Somehow out of all the twists and turns our lives could have taken, and out of all of the chances we might have missed, it almost seems like we were given a meant to be moment, to meet, to get to know one another and to set the stage for a special togetherness. When I am with you I know that I am in the presence of someone who makes my life more complete that I ever dreamed it could be. I turn to you for trust, and you give it, openly. I look to you for encouragement and not only do you never let me down, you lift my spirits and take my thoughts to places where my troubles seem so far away and my joys feel like they are going to stay in my life forever. I hope that you will stay forever too. I feel like you are my soul mate and I want you to know that I am reassured by you, my tomorrows need to have you near, so many of my smiles depend on you and my heart is so thankful that you are here”
“I promise to love and care for you, through times of joy and times of sorrow, to rejoice when you are happy, and grieve when you suffer, to share your interests, and hopes for the future, to try to understand you even when I do not agree, to do all in my power to help you be your true self, the person God calls you to be”
“It is written that those who walk in the light of God forever are blessed. They will rejoice in his perfect righteousness. Today we begin our journey. May we walk in the light of God forever. I have been blessed to share in your love, strive to be fair and honest, wise and true. May God always keep us and watch over our home”
“You and I will live with the miracle. And miracles are possible where there is love. Love is the reason we are here before God. And I believe that today, God opens his hand to us. I believe that I was chosen to live my life with you from this day forward. Today I act on this belief before our friends and family, giving myself unendingly to you”
“This act is one we share with God, who here joins two souls for all eternity, and who will know us from this day not as two but as one. May God always be gracious unto us, bless our days, and abide in our home. May His tender mercies solidify our union as we join beneath His hand today”
“I open my arms to you in the promise of everlasting love, understanding, and hope for the tomorrows yet to come. May we relish the solidity of God who has entered our lives. In His infinite wisdom, He has brought us together today to be made as one. May we continue to grow in His sight as a couple”
“I love you... I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, every day we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours. And you will always be mine”
“Brooke, you are my world my everything. From the moment I met you, I knew I needed you in my life. If my eyes are the oceans that put your head in the clouds then your heart is the reason I keep my feet on the ground. We may go through our stormy patches, but we always make it through. I choose to spend today, and all of my tomorrows, with you. I love you with every fibre of my being. You are my brightest star. And I promise to love you forever and always”
“I carry your heart. I carry it in my heart, I carry your heart with me. Wherever I go, you go my dear. I am never without it. I fear no fate, for you are my fate. I want no world, for you are my world. You are my light, even in the darkest hours. You are the lighthouse guiding me safely to shore. You are the light at the end of the tunnel. And most importantly, you are the light of my life. You are my brightest star. And I promise to love you forever and always”
“From this moment, I, (name) take you, (name) as my best friend for life. I pledge to honor, encourage, and support you through our walk together. When our way becomes difficult, I promise to stand by you and uplift you, so that through our union we can accomplish more than we could alone. I promise to work at our love and always make you a priority in my life. With every beat of my heart, I will love you. This is my solemn vow.”
“Where there has been cold, you have brought warmth; where there was darkness, you have brought light. Our miracle lies in the path we have chosen together. I enter this marriage with you, knowing that the true magic of love is not to avoid changes, but to follow the path together, hand in hand. Let us commit to the miracle of making each day work, together. Whatever lies ahead, good or bad, we will face together. Distance may test us for a time, and time may try us. But if we look to each other first, we will always see a friend. For better or worse, richer of poorer, in sickness and health, in joy and in sorrow, to love and to cherish, to be faithful to you alone”
“Today, I take my place as your husband/wife. May our days be long, and may they be seasoned with faith, love, understanding, and respect, forever and ever. Today is the beginning of the rest of our lives. I choose to spend today, and all of my tomorrows, with you”
Promises you make like to use when doing your own Vows
1. I promise to notice and acknowledge the positive things that you do, rather than get hung up on the negatives.
2. I promise to accept that we are different -- that we will see the world differently and over the course of our marriage we will want different things. Though I don't expect this to be easy, I will strive to be open-minded and loving about the way that you see things. Failing that, I will do my best to be tolerant.
3. I promise to do more than my fair share when necessary and to not grouse about it. Keeping score is about fear and stinginess, not about love.
4. I promise to release my end of the rope when we're in a tug of war, knowing that there's a cost to my winning when it means that you lose.
5. I promise to not ask you to change in ways that I'm unwilling to change.
6. I promise to not take your annoying behaviours personally, even though I really, really wish you would wash out the sponge.
7. I promise to keep in mind that your basic intention is to be a loving and decent husband, even when you're not doing so.
8. I promise to drop my expectations of your becoming the man I want you to be as opposed to the man you are.
9. I promise to focus a lot more on my shortcomings and a lot less on yours.
10. I promise to forgive both of us for having not known from the start how to be the kind and generous partners we've finally become.
