1: That future, with its hopes and disappointments, its successes and failures, its pleasures and pains, its joys and sorrows is hidden from your eyes. Love can make it easy, and perfect love can make it a joy. May, then, this love with which you join your hand and hearts today never fail, but grow deeper and stronger as the years go on.
7: Take hold of this rose as a blessing to your union today. This rose symbolizes the essence of love, bringing forth the budding romance into a lifetime of unconditional love. The circle has just edged forth your cycle of happiness, one of emotions, harmony, health and prosperity. This cord symbolizes the combined energy that flows between the two of you... coupled into one... you Ian and you Rebecca now have the spiritual joining... one for life... one for eternity. May this cord remind you to share, respect, honour, and help each other as you go forward through life's journey together. May these cords bless you both with the qualities you most wish for your union. Walk in peace and the brightest of blessings.
14: "He holds her hand,She holds his heart."
15: To the world you may be one person, but to me you are the world.
18: "Love begins in a moment, grows over time, and lasts for an eternity."
21: Everlasting Love
23: Storybook Love
27: Rebecca and Ian, may your ring be always the symbol of the unbroken circle of love. Love freely given has no giver and no receiver. You are each the giver and each the receiver. May your ring always call to mind the freedom and the power of this love.
