If you want a reading as part of your ceremony, we’ve compiled a list of the most popular readings that might make you think, enjoy.

  1. “Sonnet 18 – Shall I compare thee to a  summer’s day”  by William Shakespeare.

Or you might decide you want to go for something more funny like:

Choosing your people to speak for you on your wedding day can be a great way to help some of your wedding party feel more involved, be it a best friend, family member or just someone you love dearly, it’s an alternative way to tell someone they are important to you outside of having to clothe them!
