Modern wedding vows for a modern couple

With so many elements to arrange for your special day, one that doesn’t always immediately spring to mind is the format for your wedding ceremony script. You may know what type of ceremony appeals to you and whether religion plays a role in your vows, but it’s completely normal to be unsure about how you want to phrase the words of your ceremony.

I promise to always care for you, connect with you, comfort you and celebrate with you. I will be by your side through whatever life may bring and cherish the time we have together. I feel lucky to have found someone who embraces all that I am and enriches my life in so many ways. The values, dreams and plans we share make me excited for our future. I can’t wait to continue this adventure with you.

No Other Than Yourself

I choose you to be no other than yourself, loving what I know of you and trusting what I do not yet know. I promise to laugh with you when times are good and endure with you when times are bad. I respect you as an individual, a partner, and an equal. You are my best friend and I promise to love you always.

The Way You Are

I promise to accept you the way you are. I fell in love with your qualities, your quirks and your outlook on life. I promise to respect you as a person with your own interests, desires and needs, and to realise that those are sometimes different, but no less important, than my own. I promise to join with you and to share all that is to come, to give and to receive, to speak and to listen. With kindness, honesty and trust, I will work by your side to create a wonderful life together.

You Are My Reason

You were my reason back then, my reason now, my reason every day. You make me feel happier than I could ever imagine and more loved than I ever thought possible. I pledge my life to yours, to share both good times and bad times side by side. No matter where life leads me, I know that as long as you are there, it is where I am meant to be.

Now and Forevermore

I promise to be a true and faithful partner, from this day forward, in all life’s circumstances, as we face them together. In the joys and sorrows, the good times and bad, in sickness or in health, I will always be there for you, to comfort you, love you, honour and cherish you, now and forevermore.

A Life We Both Dream of Living

You are my best friend. I love you with all my heart and stand here before all of our friends and family, on this the happiest day of my life. I want nothing more than to share my future with you – my triumphs and my challenges, my joys and my sorrows. Together, I know we can accomplish the life we both dream of living.

I Choose You

There are three words that are stronger than I love you. Today I stand in front of you to say, ‘I choose you’. I choose you over all others. I choose you to share happiness with. I choose you to care for. I choose you to have a family with. I choose you to grow with. I choose you to love forever.

My Love, My Life

With my whole heart, I take you as my partner, acknowledging your strengths and accepting your faults, as you do mine. I will be yours in plenty and in want, in sickness and in health, in joy and in sorrow, in failure and in triumph. I promise to be faithful and supportive and to make our love and happiness a priority. You are my person, my love and my life, today and always.

In All Things for All Days

I promise to be your lover, companion, and friend. I will be your comrade in adventure, your accomplice in mischief, your comfort in disappointment, your strength in times of need and your partner in all things, for all the days of my life.

I Give to You Today

Today I give you my hand and my heart. I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you, and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle. I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is simple, and when it is an effort. I promise to cherish you and to always hold you in the highest regard. These things I give to you today and every day, a commitment made in love, kept in faith, and eternally made new.
