A Wiccan Wedding

 

Traditional Wiccan Wedding Ceremony

Officiant:

 

Within every Masculine nature lies the Feminine. Within every Feminine nature lies the Masculine. The interplay of Masculine and Feminine forces, when flowing freely in a union based on true Love, finds many expressions.

(Party 1), do you come here of your own free will?

(Party 1)

I do.

(Party 2), do you come here of your own free will?

(Party 2)

I do.

(Party 1) and (Party 2), please repeat after me:

You cannot possess me, for I belong to myself. But I give you that which is mine to give. You cannot command me, for I am a free person. But I shall serve you in those ways that you require, and the honeycomb will taste sweeter coming from my hand.

Officiant:

Will your love survive the harsh fires of change?

(Party 1 and 2 respond)

It will

Officiant:

May your home be filled with warmth.

Will your love survive the ebb and flow of feeling?

(Party 1 and 2 respond)

It will

 

May your life together be filled with love.

Will your love survive the times of stillness and restriction?

 

(Party 1 and 2 respond)

It will

 

Officiant:

May your union be strong.

Will your love survive the clear light of day?

(Party 1 and 2 respond)

It will

 

Officiant:

May your marriage be blessed by the Light of every new Dawn

 

Now you have lit a fire and that fire should not go out. The two of you now have a fire that represents love, understanding and a philosophy of life. It will give you heat, food, warmth and happiness. The new fire represents a new beginning - a new life. The fire should keep burning; you should stay together. You have lit the fire for life, until old age separates you.

 

Rings

 

The Rings of Marriage serve many purposes. As rings are never-ending circles, they are a symbol of the never-ending commitment of marriage. As permanent fixtures on your left hand, they are a reminder of the one person to which you have sworn your devotion. And as jewelry, they enhance the hand, just as one life, through the joining of marriage, enhances another. (Party 1) and (Party 2), do you bring these powerful tokens?

 

Party 1 and 2 respond:

We do

 

Officiant:

Then before all present, repeat these words:

 

Officiant to Party 1:

Please repeat after me:

 

I give you this ring as a symbol of my love for you. Let it remind you always, as it circles your finger, of my eternal love, surrounding and enfolding you, day and night.

Officiant to Party 2:

 Please repeat after me:

I give you this ring as a symbol of my love for you. Let it remind you always, as it circles your finger, of my eternal love, surrounding and enfolding you, day and night.

I give you this ring as a symbol of my love for you. Let it remind you always, as it circles your finger, of my eternal love, surrounding and enfolding you, day and night.

Above you are the stars, below you are the stones. Remember always, like a star, your love should be constant. Like the Earth, your love should be firm. Be understanding and patient, for storms may come and go. Be free always in giving affection and warmth, for it is the currency of a happy marriage.

 

(Optional)

 

I bring you the warmth of my heart. (Party 1 is handed a lighted taper by person of honor)

I bring you the light of my love. (Party 2 is handed a lighted taper by person of honor)

Above you are the stars, below you are the stones. Remember always, like a star, your love should be constant. Like the Earth, your love should be firm. Be understanding and patient, for storms may come and go. Be free always in giving affection and warmth, for it is the currency of a happy marriage.

 

Together, Bride and Groom light a single candle held by the Officiant.

 

Closing

May the warmth and light of your union be blessed. May you know the best of fortune, and your life together be one of joy and prosperity.

 

Officiant:

Do you swear to keep sacred your vows?

Party 1 and 2 respond:

We do

Then seal your promise with a kiss.

(Party 1 and Party 2) turn to face outward toward the circle of well-wishers

I present to you (names), husband/wife.
