Having a celebrant led wedding? Then you know you can use absolutely anything for your ceremony, from the vows you say to the involvement of your guests. It will be very personal to you both. Even with a registrar ceremony you can write your own vows or promises to each other, for before or after the mandatory words, but they must be pre-approved and no religious or spiritual content. So where do you start with writing them? Here are my top 5 TV inspirations for Wedding Vows:

  1. “With this hand I will lift your sorrows. Your cup will never be empty, for I will be your wine. With this candle, I will light your way into darkness. With this ring, I ask you to be mine.” – CORPSE BRIDE
  2. Monica: “For so long I wondered if I would ever find my prince, my soulmate. Then three years ago, at another wedding, I turned to a friend for comfort. And instead, I found everything that I’d ever been looking for my whole life. And now here we are, with our future before us, and I only want to spend it with you, my prince, my soulmate, my friend. Unless you don’t want to. You go!” Chandler: “I thought this was going to be the most difficult thing I ever had to do. But when I saw you walking down the aisle, I realized how simple it was. I love you. You are the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with.” – F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
  3. Harry: “I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” – WHEN HARRY MET SALLY
  4. Leonard: “Penny, we are made of particles that have existed since the moment the universe began. I like to think those atoms traveled 14 billion years through time and space to create us so that we could be together and make each other whole.” Penny: “Leonard, you’re not only the love of my life, you’re my best friend. And you’ve got a friend in me. You got troubles. I got ’em too. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you. We stick together and we can see it through because you’ve got a friend in me.” – THE BIG BANG THEORY
  5. Patrick: “David, I can’t believe this is happening. So, I’ll keep this very short because I think you know that I would climb a thousand mountains for you. You will always be a part of me, and I’m a part of you indefinitely. Boy, don’t you know you can’t escape me, ’cause you know you’ll always be my baby. And we’ll linger on, time can’t erase a feeling this strong, no way you’ll ever shake me, ooh, darling ’cause you’ll always be my baby.” David: “Patrick, I have never liked a smile as much as I like yours. I’ve never felt as safe as I feel when I’m with you. I’ve never known love like I do when we’re together. It’s not been an easy road for me but knowing that you will be there for me at the end makes everything okay. Patrick Brewer, you are my happy ending.” – SCHITT’S CREEK
