Feel free to browse my collection of inspirational wedding readings, poems and prayers to find ideas for your wedding, commitment ceremony, handfasting or renewal of vows. 

As an alternative to having the celebrant read for  you, you might like to invite one or more close friends or family members to read for you.  You will want to make sure that your readers are comfortable with standing up and speaking in front of a group.  If there will be more than 20 guests, the reader may need to use a microphone to ensure that everyone can hear.  Some couples like to choose a love poem or inspirational reading to read aloud to each other as part of their ceremony.

For copyright reasons, I have limited what is on public display to material which is already in the public domain.

Let’s Marae!

My nearest, my queerest, my conjugal dearest, my closest, my mostest, what shall I call you? My lavender gayspeak, queerspeak and queenspeak, lost lambda pipsqueak, your name preference, please? My love, my dove, my heaven above, my who I want
