Do we have to write our own vows?
A very common question that I am asked and the short answer is no! Not if you don't want to.
As far as a legal ceremony goes, there are legal words that a couple must say.
These are written in the Marriage Act 1961 and are as follows:-
Under Section 45 - Form of Ceremony - (2)
“I call upon the persons here present to witness that I, A.B. (or C.D.), take thee, C.D. (or A.B.), to be my lawful wedded wife (or husband, or spouse)”;
After that a couple can say their own vows, or vows that I supply as examples.
Your wedding ceremony should reflect you and your lives to that point.
