Our Wedding Vows

I have so many wedding posts to write and share but thought I would start off with our vows!

We decided to write our own wedding vows. The declarations you have to say are so formal and our wedding was really anything but formal! 

Therefore, writing our own vows was a really important thing for me. Fortunately I managed to remember my vows of by heart as with the rush of leaving the house on time I left them behind! I was slightly panicking in the car on my way up but I had been repeating them over and over again all week and even now I can still recite them word for word. 

It took me a while to write as I didn't want it to sound like a speech. I wanted it to be short, sweet and to get everything I wanted to say. I also really wanted to include my favourite love quote as it couldn't   describe our relationship any better!

 Overall Im really happy with my vows and by Adams reaction, I think he must have been too!

' I Sarah, Join my life to yours on our wedding day. Not only as your wife but as your best friend and soulmate. I promise to love you in good times and in bad, be the shoulder you lean on, your rock on which you rest and your life long partner. I vow to love you unconditionally through all our adventures in life together & I cannot think of anyone i'd rather spend the rest of my life with. We have always said forever and always so may today be the start of our happy ever after, because i'd choose you, in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, i'd find you & i'd choose you. '

Adam,  being a typical bloke saved his wedding vows under a silly name on the laptop so for ages I have been unable to find them. I was so disappointed as the day seems such a blur, if I'm totally honest...I can't remember what he said. However I suddenly thought about searching his suit pockets and sure enough found them. I love having them on paper as it means I can always treasure them! Im also going to get them printed so they are always a keep sake! 

Adam also found writing the vows tricky as he wanted to save so much for his speech. I absolutely love what he has written as I just know that it has come from the bottom of his heart and he really does mean every word.  He has never been very good at expressing how he feels in writing so to have these vows to treasure means a lot!

' I promise to love you unconditionally, to honour you each and everyday, to laugh with you when you are happy and to support you when you are sad. I promise to be your soulmate and your best friend. To grow old with you and create everlasting memories. I will be there for you on every journey you take, to support you each and every step along the way. I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. '
