“Now you will feel no rain,
For each of you will be the shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
For each of you will be the warmth to the other.
Now there will be no loneliness,
For each of you will be the companion to the other.
Now you are two persons,
But there is only one life before you.
May beauty surround you both
In the journey ahead and through all the years.
May happiness be your companion
And your days together be good and long upon this earth.”
We had our solemniser Isabel read this passage out as a blessing and a reminder, just before the ceremony ended. It really resonated with us, so true, simple and beautiful :)
