Whatever time of year you decide to get married, your ceremony is the most important and memorable part of your day. Deciding to have a personalised wedding ceremony on gives you the option to include your choices of vows, readings and poetry. Choosing to have a Halloween wedding or ceremony, gives you the option to choose vows, readings and poetry with a Halloween theme.
For their Halloween weddings and ceremonies, Gothic couples seem to favour quotes and readings by poets including Edgar Allan Poe. His poem ‘Annabel Lee’ has so many quotes which can be used in a wedding ceremony.
‘But we loved with a love that was more than love…’
Poe’s most famous work ‘The Raven’ has also been quoted in various alternative wedding ceremonies.
Your wedding vows can also have a spooky, yet romantic theme to them, and if your theme is Tim Burton, the vows from ‘The Corpse Bride’ are ideal for a Halloween wedding ceremony.
‘With this hand, I will lift your sorrows.
Your cup will
For I will be your wine.
With this candle,
I will light your way in darkness.
With this ring, I ask
you to be mine.’
A unity candle and wine ceremony element are perfect to include with these vows, as both aspects are mentioned in the vows.
For the perfect Halloween wedding entertainment, why not have a story teller to read out Halloween stories and poems at your reception? This will appeal to guests of all ages, and is a great way of entertaining your guests as food is being served at your reception. Hiring a toast master or asking an alternative Celebrant to do this will guarantee you a great performance.
There are so many poems, readings and quotes about Halloween which you can incorporate into your day. Online searches will direct you to various poets and authors and whatever your theme, there will be something which is ideal.
Whatever you decide to do on your wedding day, define it your way. For more information on Halloween, Gothic, alternative or Civil Celebrant weddings, please contact me
